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

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
