Attraction/Atracción The electric force exerted by oppositely charged particles, tending to draw or hold the particles together./ La fuerza eléctrica ejercida por partículas con carga opuesta, que tiende a atraer o mantener unidas las partículas.
Chemical energy/Energía química Energy that is stored in matter and can be released by a chemical reaction. Energía que se almacena en la materia y puede liberarse mediante una reacción química.
Circuit/Circuito An interconnection of electrical elements forming a complete path for the flow of electric current. Una interconexión de elementos eléctricos que forman un camino completo para el flujo de corriente eléctrica
Conduct/Conducta To transmit heat, sound, or electricity through a medium. Para transmitir calor, sonido o electricidad a través de un medio.
Conductor/Conductor A material that readily allows electric charges to pass through it and therefore carries electricity well. Un material que permite que las cargas eléctricas pasen fácilmente a través de él y, por lo tanto, transporta bien la electricidad.
Insulator/Aislante A material used to reduce or prevent the transfer of electricity, heat, or sound. Material utilizado para reducir o prevenir la transferencia de electricidad, calor o sonido.
Electrical energy/Energía eléctrica Energy made available by the flow of electric charge through a conductor. Energía disponible por el flujo de carga eléctrica a través de un conductor.
Energy/Energía The capacity to do work./ La capacidad de trabajar.
Electricity/Electricidad Fenómenos físicos que surgen del comportamiento de electrones y protones que es causado por la atracción de partículas con cargas opuestas y la repulsión de partículas con la misma carga.
Heat energy/Energía térmica Energía que se transfiere entre sustancias debido a una diferencia de temperatura entre las sustancias; la transferencia de energía es siempre de la sustancia más caliente a la más fría.
Light energy/Energia luminosa La única forma visible de energía; producido o emitido directamente por el sol provocando el crecimiento de plantas y la existencia de la mayoría de las formas de vida.
Mechanical energy/Energía mecánica The energy that is possessed by an object due to its motion or position. La energía que posee un objeto debido a su movimiento o posición.
Repel/Repeler To force away or apart. Para alejar o apartar.
Sound energy/Energia de sonido Energy produced by sound vibrations. Energía producida por vibraciones sonoras
Potential energy/ Energía potencial energy that is stored to be used later/ energía que se almacena para ser utilizada más tarde
Kinetic energy/ Energía cinética energy of motion/ energía del movimiento
Refract/ Refracción light is bent such as through a different medium (pencil through air then water)/ la luz se dobla a través de un medio diferente (lápiz a través del aire y luego del agua)
Reflect/ Reflejo light is bounced off an object like on a mirror/ la luz rebota en un objeto como en un espejo.
