Mr. Scanlan ch5 phys

Mr. Scanlan work, energy and power

What is done on an object when a force causes a displacement of the object? Work
The energy of an object that is due to the object’s motion is called what? Kinetic Energy
This variable depends on speed and mass. Kinetic energy
1/2 the mass x velocity (squared) equals what? Kinetic Energy
The energy associated with an object because of the position, shape, or condition of the object is called what? Potential Energy
The potential energy stored in the gravitational fields of interacting bodies is called what? Gravitational Potential Energy
This variable depends on height from a zero level. Gravitational Potential Energy
This is the energy available for use when a deformed elastic object returns to its original configuration. Elastic Potential Energy
The symbol k, a parameter that measures the spring’s resistance to being compressed or stretched is called what? Spring Constant
The sum of kinetic energy and all forms of potential energy associated with an object or group of objects is called what? Mechanical Energy
This a quantity that measures the rate at which work is done or energy is transformed. Power
work ÷ time interval Power
force x speed Power
Mass x gravitational pull x height Gravitational Potential Energy
1/2 spring constant (K) times distance (X) squared Elastic Potential Energy

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.
