Physics Energy Vocab

Work The product of the force on an object and the distance through which the object is moved. (Force is consistant, motion is in a straight line in the same direction as the force). Messured in Joules (J).
Power Rate at which work is done or energy is transformed, equal to the work done or energy transformed divided by the time. Measured in Watts.
Energy The property of an object or a system that enables it to do work. Measured in Joules (J).
Joules The SI unit of work and all other forms of energy. One J of work is done when 1Nx1m in the direction of the force.
Watt The SI unit of Power. One Watt is expended when 1J of work is done in one second.
Mechanical Energy Energy possessed by an object due to position or movement.//ALL ENERGY//
Work-Energy Therom States that when work is done on an object, the result is change in kinetic energy. (W=deltaKE)
Gravitational Potential Energy of an object is due to its position relitive to the Earth's surface/floor. It is due to Earth's gravity. Path doesn't matter, only height. It comes about when you do work against gravity.
Potential Energy is the energy of an object due to its position. It is the "stored up" energy.
Law of Conversion of Energy. Energy can neither be created or destroyed. Energy always changes from one form to another. Total engergy of an object remains the same.
Kinetic Energy of an object is due to its motion, moving objects have kinetic energy.
Renewable Sources Sources of energy that can be renewed like: biomass, water, solar, and geothermal.
Nonrenewable Sources Sources of energy that cannot be renewed like: coal, nuclear fuel, and natural gas.

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.
