What do you think of when you hear the word ENERGY? (make a list of words that makes you think of energy) Food Movement Doing things Working Sunlight Energy Where do they get
the energy to go down the hill? Essential Question: Why is energy so important to us? EVERYDAY ENERGY? What types of energy do you encounter everyday? How does energy get from one place to another? It will either transform or transfer.
So what is ENERGY?!?! Energy is NOT matter and is actually very difficult to define... Textbooks define it as The ability to do work We will define it by providing examples of energy and the effects it has on objects. There are many different types of energy Types of Energy We have already talked about many
different types of energy. ALL energy can be classified as either Potential Energy or Kinetic Energy. Gravitational POTENTIAL Energy (GPE) Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE) is the stored energy of an object resulting from the objects position in a system. GPE relies on the height of the object in the systemthe higher the object the
more GPE it has. If you add GPE to KE + heat you get Total Energy (TE) TE= GPE + KE + heat Kinetic Energy (KE) Kinetic Energy (KE) - the energy of motion. The energy associated with moving objects is called kinetic energy (KE), and is often referred to as the most fundamental form of energy. The size of the KE is determined by an objects speed and its mass.
Review of Energy Forms Mechanical Energy Kinetic Energy (KE) - the energy of motion. The energy associated with moving objects is called kinetic energy (KE), and is often referred to as the most fundamental form of energy. The size of the KE is determined by an objects speed and its mass. A moving baseball has kinetic energy. If
you have ever been hit by a pitched ball, you are aware of the energy a moving object can have. Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE) - the stored energy of position. This is energy that an object possesses due to its position. The size of the GPE is determined by the objects mass and its height above the ground. A person climbing a ladder increases her height above the ground, she increases her GPE. Heat Energy (HE) or Thermal Energy -is the random kinetic energy of particles. Heat energy is
the random, and very disorganized, kinetic energy of the particles in a substance. The thermal energy of an object consists of the total kinetic energy of all its atoms and molecules. It is a form of energy related to heat and temperature. Thermal energy can be created internally with chemical, nuclear and electrical reactions. It can also be created or increased from external effects, such as mechanical motion, radiation and thermal
conduction. Chemical Energy (CE) - The energy held in the covalent bonds between atoms in a molecule is called chemical energy. Every bond has a certain amount of energy. To break the bond requires energy, it is called endothermic (energy is absorbed). These broken bonds then join together to create new molecules, and in the process release heat, chemists call this exothermic (energy is
released). . If the total heat given out is more than the heat taken in then the whole reaction is called exothermic, and the chemicals get hot. Electromagnetic Energy Electromagnetic energy is the energy that comes from electromagnetic radiation. This radiation is composed of waves, such as radio waves and visible light, that move at the speed of light in a way that is suggestive of both waves and
particles. Electromagnetic radiation causes both electric and magnetic fields. Only a small part of the electromagnetic field is visible; this part of the electromagnetic spectrum is known as the visible spectrum. Sound Energy-Sound energy is the energy produced by sound vibrations as they travel through a specific medium. Sound vibrations cause waves of pressure which lead to some level of
compression and rarefaction in the mediums through which the sound waves travel. Sound energy is, therefore, a form of mechanical energy; it is not contained in small particles and it is not related to any chemical change, but is purely related to the pressure its vibrations cause. Sound energy is typically not used for electrical power or for other human energy needs because the amount of energy that can be gained
Elastic Potential Energy (EPE) Elastic potential energy is the potential energy of an elastic object (like a bow or a spring) that is deformed under tension or compression (often termed under the word stress by physicists). It happens as a result of a force that tries to restore the object to its original shape, which is most often the electromagnetic force between the atoms and molecules that make up the object. If the stretch is released, it is transformed into
mechanical energy. Salem Nuclear Power Plant Nuclear Power- Nuclear power plants split the nuclei of uranium atoms in a process called fission. The sun combines the nuclei of hydrogen atoms in a process called fusion.
Scientists are working on creating fusion energy on earth, so that someday there might be fusion power plants. Chemical Energy vs. Nuclear Energy Chemical Energy Nuclear Energy It is the energy that holds
electrons together that move around the nucleus. Happens in the Electron Cloud The energy can be released when the bonds are broken. Small Amount of Energy released It is the energy stored in the nucleus of an atom.
Happens in the Nucleus The energy can be released when the nuclei are combined or split apart. Large amount of Energy released Examples Digestion, burning fossil fuels Examples Sun,xrays, Nuclear Power
Whats the Difference between energy transfer and energy transformation? Energy transfer is when the same energy is transferred to another object. When you kick a soccer ball down the field with your moving leg! Energy transformation is when one energy type changes into another type of energy. A rollercoaster that is stopped on top of the hill rolls down the track. Energy in Systems
Energy can move from place to place or change from one type to another Energy transformation is changing from one type of energy into a different type of energy. Energy transfer - is how the same type of energy is passed from one object to another object. Question? A bowling ball is sitting on a table and is pushed off and hits a skateboard which rolls across the floor. Explain what
happened to both the ball and skateboard using the terms Energy Transfer And Energy Transformation Answer Bowling Ball KE was transferred to the bowling ball to put the ball in motion. The balls energy was transformed from GPE to KE. Skateboard KE was transferred from the bowling ball
to the skateboard. The skateboards energy was transformed from GPE to KE. Is there any friction here? If so, where? Dropping Golf Balls ... You will drop a golf ball and a fuzzy ball from four different heights (25cm, 50cm, 75 cm and 100cm) looking for
evidence of energy by a change that is produced by each one. Lets Investigate Each person has received a lab paper with 7 Questions and a set of directions from A-D. Work together on this lab! You must do these in order so if some Questions come first, answer the question BEFORE going on to the direction steps!!! Answer the questions on your lab paper and review
your data table. You may discuss the answers and data as a group, but DO NOT copy answers from other groupswrite your own!!! Data Table 1. One column is for the golf ball and one column is for the fuzzy ball. 2. Use little ruler to measure the width of the crater in cm. 3. Then Use the ruler to
smooth the sand. 4. Record your answers. 5. Clean up when you are finished! Answer post lab questions.* Heights Height (cm) 25 50 75 100
Golf Ball Fuzzy Ball Width of Crater (cm) Width
of Crater (cm) Investigation Results 1.) The golf ball does not have any K E since it is not moving. It does not have the ability to move on its own
due to its position (sitting in the sand) so it does not have any GPE. If KE = 0J and GPE = 0J then TE is also 0J!!! 2.) The golf ball now has GPE b/c it is above the ground it now has a height of 25cm!!! It does not have KE though since it is not moving. Investigation Results 3.) The golf ball got its energy from the person who picked it up and moved it
to a height!!! The person TRANSFERRED energy to the ball from themselves when they lifted it!!! This energy came from the persons muscles. The muscles got their energy from the food you ate. Tracing this flow of energy is called an ENERGY CHAIN. Investigation Results 4.) The ball dropped from the highest
point = 100cm caused the biggest crater. 5.) The variable that changed here was the MASS of the ball. Everything else remained constant (stayed the same). The craters produced by the hollow ball w/ less mass were smaller. Mass affects GPE and KE!!! Investigation Results 6.) Both of the balls hit the sand at the
same speed!!! (In other words, they fall at the same time!!!)Watch Ill show you The difference between the two balls is the amount of energy!!! The more massive ball possesses more energy!!! Investigation Results 7.) The big point you should have concluded is that MASS affects both GPE and KE. You should have also concluded that
the higher the release point, the faster the ball will be traveling when it hits the sand. Gravity speeds up ALL falling objects at the same rate (9.8 m/s2). The greater the speed of the object when it hits the sand, the greater the KE. Revisiting the Golf ball Lab Where did the golf ball get its initial (beginning) energy to even move at all? From the person who initially moved the
ball. Where did they get the energy from? They got the energy from the food they ate that day. What kind of energy is that called? Chemical energy Revisiting the Golf ball Lab MASS affects both GPE and KE. The higher the release point, the faster the ball will be traveling when it hits
the sand. Gravity speeds up ALL falling objects at the same rate (9.8 m/s2). The greater the speed of the object the greater the KE. vestigating How Forces Transfer Energ Part A: Creating a Barrier Focus Question: What barrier design will stop the car in the shortest distance?

ENERGY CHAINS Since energy is transferred and transformed all the time, it is helpful to be able to track the flow of energy in systems. A map of what happens to energy, where it goes, and how it changes in
a system. Energy chains can be created using words, pictures, arrows, or any combination of things that show the movement of energy in a system.

ENERGY CHAINS Lets look at some systems where energy transformation is taking place(i.e. changing from one type of energy to another type of energy.) Ramps Cars Bungee jumper A Pendulum A Hydroelectric Power Plant Newtons
Laws The cause of it all What causes acceleration (a change in velocity) to occur? (In other words what must be applied?) A FORCE!!! Force What's a force? Any push or a pull on an object to put it into
motion. Force can be measured by taking an objects mass and multiplying it by the acceleration. F = m*a (Units for Force are Newtons: N) 1Newton= 1kg x m/s2 Units for acceleration are= m/s2 Force How would you plug the force equation into a power triangle??? (F=ma)
Force Re-arrange the Force equation (F=ma) to solve for mass and acceleration m= a= Force There are several types of forces acting on this moving box. What are they?
Force Friction: A force that opposes the motion between two objects in contact with each other. Q: Is it easier to push something across concrete or ice? (WHY?) A: Ice b/c there are less frictional forces. Unbalanced Forces What would be the NET force (overall force) on the box?
= 30 N What direction will the box move? Left Force problems 1. What is the net force necessary for a 1.6x103 kg automobile to accelerate forward at 2.0m/s2? F=ma 1.6x10 3
kg x 2.0m/s2 = 3200 kg x m/s2 or 3200N 2. A baseball accelerates downward at 9.8 m/s2. If the gravitational force acting on the ball is 1.4N, what is the baseballs mass? m= f/a 1.4N so= 9.8 m/s2 1.4 kg x m/s2 9.8 m/s2 = .142 kg
Force problems 3. A sailboat and its crew have a combined mass of 655kg. If the sailboat experiences an unbalance force of 895N pushing it forward, what is the sailboats acceleration? a= f/m 895N so = 655 kg 895 kg x m/s2 655 kg
a =1.36 m/s2 Newtons First LAW LAW 1 (Law of Inertia): An object at rest will remain at rest and an object in motion remains in motion unless acted upon an outside force. Inertia: The property of an object to resist changes in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. Unbalanced force: A net force that is not equal to zero. Ex. When the car suddenly stops and
your body snaps forward. Newtons Second LAW LAW 2: The unbalanced force acting on an object equals the objects mass times its acceleration. To accelerate the mass of an object you must apply a force! F= m x a Ex. Any time you move an object Newtons Third LAW
LAW 3:For every action force, there is an equal and opposite reaction force. Ex. Hitting a homerun off of a pitcher in baseball. Examples of Newtons Laws If you are pushing an empty grocery cart with 20N of force will the grocery cart have the same acceleration if you continue to push it at the same force of 20N when it is full.
Which Law and why? A: 2nd law. NOthe acceleration will be less once the cart is full b/c you have added mass, and a = F/m Examples of Newtons Laws What would happen if you were standing on a skateboard and threw a really heavy ball? Which law and why? A: 3rd law. : You will go backwards on the skateboard b/c the ball is pushing
you with an equal and opposite force the other way. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Examples of Newtons Laws If you are riding on the bus and your books are on the seat next to you if the bus driver stomps on the brakeswhere do your books go??? Which law and why? A: 1st law. onto the floor An object in motion stays in motion until acted
on by an unbalanced force. Force Calculations 1. If a 4500 kg car is traveling westward with an acceleration of 35.2 m/s2, what is the force acting on it? 2. I am a roller skater with a mass of 72kg. If I am accelerating toward a wall at 3.7m/s2, what will be the amount of force at which I hit the wall? 3. A dock worker needs to stop a box of goods that is rolling across a manual conveyer belt. He pushes it with a force of 288.75 N and is accelerating at .75m/s2. What is the mass of the box? 4. What is the acceleration of a 55kg ice skater who is moving with a force of 687.5 N?
LAW OF CONSERVATIO N of ENERGY In the golf ball investigation, can we account for all the energy in the system? If we add up all the PE, KE and any friction, will it equal the total energy (TE) in the system? Yes, scientific evidence leads us
to believe that ALL of the energy in any example can be accounted for! But it is not always easy in an open system. LAW OF CONSERVATION of ENERGY Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only be transformed or transferred. Total Energy is all the energy in a system
The TOTAL ENERGY (TE) will always stay the same!!! TE = PE + KE + heat LAW OF CONSERVATION of ENERGY The TOTAL ENERGY of a system can be measured by adding PE + KE + Heat. TE = KE + PE + heat Q: Where does the heat come from??? A: Friction!!! (Rub your hands together and see what happens!!!)
LAW OF CONSERVATION of ENERGY TE will equal the GPE at the highest point in a system! TE=GPE at the highest point 100 Joules of energy to start 100 Joules of energy at the end! Equal at the mid point! What you put in, is what you get out! (TE) NEVER CHANGES in a
system! A B C LAW OF CONSERVATION of ENERGY Lets look at the pendulum swing. Will it continue to swing with same amount of energy over time?
Why wont the beginning energy ever equal the end energy??? Hint: Can heat be contained in an open system? NO please remember that energy is not destroyed, but some of it can escape from the system to the surroundings in the form of heat from the rope. LAW OF CONSERVATION of ENERGY Can any system ever be 100% efficient?
Will the beginning energy ever equal the end energy? NO! There is no such thing as a frictionless system!!! Energy Ramp PE= Max Label sections A-E w/ the appropriate level of PE and KE PE= High (Assume NO friction)

5.6 m/s POTENTIAL energy (PE) Potential Energy (PE) is the stored energy of an object resulting from the position of the object in a system. PE is measured by multiplying the mass of the object times the gravity and then times the height. PE = m x g x h remember(gravity = 9.8m/ s2)
Units are Joules!!! (J) 1 Joule= 1kg x m2/s2 POTENTIAL energy (PE) Examples of objects with high PE: A stretched rubber band Any hanging object Any compressed object (like a spring) Any object that is high up on cliff/Mountain. PE Power Triangle Plug PE = m*g*h into a Power Triangle

Gravity 9.8 m/s2 POWER TRIANGLE If there is a fraction in the formula then the variable at the top of the fraction goes on top of the triangle. Solve for mass So for m= PE gh S is for Solve: Example: A mountain biker rides down a 42m high
mountain with 2500 J of GPE. What is the mass of the mountain biker? Step 5: Now you need to arrange the data to SOLVE the formula. Put a box around your answer. Take two places past the decimal and Do not round your answer. m = PE mg 2500J (kg x m2/s2 ) 9.8m/s2 ) = 6.07 kg

Apple A height= 15m Apple B height= 20m Remember PE=mgh So Apple A PE= 220.5J Apple B PE= 294 J So the winner isApple B Total Energy RememberTotal Energy is all the energy in a system
Remember the formula? TE=PE +KE+ Heat The heat in a system is the FRICTION! Total Energy will equal the GPE at the highest point in system. Total Energy NEVER changes in a system! Becausewhat you put in is what you get out! Lets see if it works Set up a Data Table PE

velocity (speed) of an object. Only of the mass is used, but velocity is squared so KE depends mostly on the velocity of the object. KE = m * v2 Units are Joules!!! (J) Speed vs. Velocity Whats speed? How fast an object is moving. Then what is velocity? Velocity is speed with direction!
Ex. Traveling 90 mi/hr north bound. Solving KE Problems KE = m * v 2 ***Remember PEMDAS (order of operations) 1ST: Square the v 2nd: Take half the mass 3rd: Multiply 1/2m * v2 What is the kinetic energy of a 62.4 kg person running at a velocity of 4 m/s? Ke= (62.4 kg) (4 m/s ^2) =

Production capacity of 12,600 MW (megawatts) and a reliable output of 75 billion KW a year. Provides 25% of the energy supply in Brazil and 78% in Paraguay WORK The Transfer
of Energy How does the previous investigation help us to understand how forces transfer energy? The Transfer of Energy is called WORK Work measures the effects of a force acting over a distance. Work = F*d so Work= energy transferred
The units are N * m = Joules (J) 1 Joule= 1kg x m2/s2 (F) * (d) = Work (1kg x m/s2 x m)= 1kg x m2/s2 Work Practice Problems 1.) F = 5200N d = 25m W=?J W = F*d = (5200N)*(25m) = 130,000J
2.) F = 1N d = 1m W=?J W = F*d = (1N)*(1m) = 1J Work Practice Problems 3.) F = 125N d = 14.0m W=?J W = F*d = (125N)*(14.0m)
= 1750J Work Practice Problems 4.) F = 165N d = .800m W = F*d W=?J = (165N)*(.800m) = 132J WORK Q: If you try to move a lab table with 12,000N of force and it doesnt move
How much work have you done? A: NONE!!! Because W = 0J b/c the distance was 0m and W = 12,000N* 0m = 0J Work Practice Problems 5.) d = .5m F = m*a (a of g = 9.8m/s2) m = 1200kg F=?N = (1200kg)*(9.8m/s2) Force= 11,760N F = 11,760N
W = F*d d = .5m W = ?J = (11,760N)*(.5m) = 5880J POWER Whats Power? Power = how much work is done in a given amount of time. Does running require more work than walking the same distance?
No! So what is the difference between running and walking? A: The time it takes!!! So we need to account for the time it takes to do work the equation that measures that is P = W (Units for Power are Joules = Watts) t sec Think about light bulbs! POWER in DUFAS 1. While running track, Bobs legs do 5780J of

What is the power output of the chain? 312.05 Watts 3. It takes Ms. King 20s to apply 23J of force to move a box. What was her power output? 1.15 Watts
Elastic Potential Energy Elastic Potential energy can be determined from the objects stretch squared and the constant that reflects the elasticity of the material. So whats this mean in English? Elastic EPE= 1/2kx2 Elastic Potential Energy
Elastic PE= 1/2kx2 K=spring constant N/ m X= amount stretched or compression Ex: (stretched spring, pulled rubber band) Elastic PE is measured in Joules N/m x m Elastic Potential
Energy Problem Remember K= 100 N/m Elastic PE= 1/2kx2 2 50 N/m The elastic force X=(.5m)2 constant stored in a drawn bow is 100 N/m. .25m2 The bow is drawn to pull the arrow back a distance of 0.5 meters.
Calculate the elastic 50 N/m x .25m2 potential energy stored EPE =12.5 J in the drawn bow. In DUFAS Elastic Potential Energy Problem The elastic force constant of a rubber balloon is 63 N/m. If the balloon is
stretched .13 m when blown up, calculate the elastic potential energy stored in the rubber balloon. In DUFAS K= 63 N/m 2 31.5 N/m X=(.13m)2 .0169m2 31.5 N/m x .0169m2
EPE =.53235 J Elastic Potential Energy Problem The elastic force constant of a spring in a toy is 550 N/m. If the spring is compressed .12 m, compute the elastic potential energy stored in the spring.
In DUFAS K= 550 N/m 2 275 N/m X=(.12m)2 .0144m2 275 N/m x .0144m2 EPE =3.96 J SAFER Crash Barriers
An excellent application of these concepts is the soft walls used by major racing facilities across the nation (Dover International Speedway being one of these). The new SAFER (Steel And Foam Energy Reduction) barriers have revolutionized the sport of automobile racing and made it much safer for both the drivers and the fans. So how do SAFER barriers absorb energy?* The barriers move upon impact so that the KE of the car is transferred to a very large area of the wall (a large portion of the wall flexes upon impact). The key idea is that no one portion of the wall receives a large amount of the cars KE. The KE of the
flexing soft wall is then transferred to the outer permanent wall and support structure. The materials that make up the wall are not elastic. Imagine what the collision would be like if the wall was elastic! Still other portions of the cars initial KE are transformed into heat energy and sound energy. Forces That Transfer Energy Making Crash Barriers Crumple Zones
Collapsed Crumple Zone Good Crumple Zone Methods of Energy TRANSFER Energy TRANSFER: Energy transfer - is how the same
type of energy is passed from one object to another object. There are only THREE ways that energy can be transferred between objects Energy TRANSFER: Method 1: Conduction The transfer of energy through matter by direct contact of particles.
Examples: a pot on a stove, a metal spoon in a bowl of hot soup. Energy TRANSFER: Method 2: Convection The transfer of energy by the movement of gases or liquids. (fluid movement only!!!) Hot fluids will rise while cold fluids will sink this creates a swirling motion. Examples: Hurricanes, pasta or rice swirling in boiling water, a hot air balloon.
Energy TRANSFER: Method 3 : Radiation The transfer of energy in the form of a wave. (mechanical or electromagnetic waves) Examples: How Earth gets its energy from the sun, a microwave oven cooking food, sound. 1

You will move the decimal point 4 times to the left. (negative is to the left on the number line!!!) = .000346g =.000346g Make sure you put units on it also! Scientific Notation Lets practice: Change 4.86 E3 kg into a regular number Need to move the decimal 3 times and to the right because the 3 is positive.
= 4860 and dont forget units! = 4860 kg Scientific Notation When you move the decimal to the left it is negative. And When you move the decimal to the right it is positive! YOUR TURN: ANSWERS:
1.) 2.) 3.) 4.) 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.) 9.325 E-2 m 2.1903 E4 kg
