6 gr Energy

potential energy (PE) stored energy due to position of objects or arrangement of particles; CANNOT be transferred BUT, CAN be transformed
kinetic energy (KE) energy in motion; CAN be transferred & transformed
Gravitational PE potential energy that depends on an object’s mass and its height above the ground
Elastic PE energy stored in objects that can be stretched or compressed, such as trampolines, rubber bands and bungee cords
Chemical PE energy stored in the arrangement of particles such as in food, fossil fuels, etc.
Law of the Conservation of Energy energy cannot be created nor destroyed; it can only be transformed and transferred
total energy of a system the sum of the potential and kinetic energies;
energy transformation energy conversion
energy transfer energy is relocated from one system to another
photosynthesis light (radiant, electromagnetic) energy → chemical energy with heat “lost” to surrounding
waves disruptions that transfer energy from one place to another; do NOT transfer matter
transverse waves waves where the particles in the medium move perpendicular to the direction of the energy
longitudinal waves waves where the particles of the medium move in the same direction (parallel) as the energy
