Physics - Energy

Kinetic energy energy of motion
Potential energy energy that is stored as a result of position or shape
Thermal energy increases when an object becomes warmer
Law of Conservation of Energy energy can be converted from one form to another and cannot be created or destroyed
Mechanical energy kinetic energy + potential energy
Nonrenewable energy a source of energy that exists in limited quanitities and once used, cannot be replaced except over the course of millions of years
Heat the transfer of energy from one object to another because of a difference in temperature
Temperature related to the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object
Potential energy increases as the temperature of an object rises
Q=m x c x change in T specific heat = mass x specific heat x change in temperature
Radiation manner by which energy from the Sun reaches Earth
To transfer thermal energy by conduction and convection, you need: matter
Metal good heat conductor
