potential energy stored energy
work the transfer of energy through motion
mechanical energy total amount of kinetic and potential energy in a system
law of conservation of energy states that energy may change form but it cannot be created or destroyed under ordinary conditions
temperature measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a sample of matter
thermal energy the total energy of the particles in a material
heat thermal energy that flows from something with a higher temperature to something with a lower temperature
thermal pollution occurs when waste heat changes the temp. of an environment
specific heat the amount of energy needed to raise the temp. of 1 kg of a material 1K
