Energy Models Transferring & TransformingEnergy
Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy Quick Review Potential Energy = Stored Energy Kinetic Energy = Happening Energy (energy of motion) Energy can change from one form to another, HOWEVER … IT IS NEVER LOST
Potential Energy to Kinetic Energy Energy is constantly changing from potential energy to kinetic energy and back again. Can we explain this using a model? OF COURSE!
Baseball Model The baseball has potential energy when it is in the glove. The potential energy is transferred to kinetic energy when the ball is released. The kinetic energy is then transferred back to potential energy when the catcher catches the ball. This change happens each time the ball is thrown.
Now Your Turn Pendulum Model Explain the transfer of energy in the pendulum. Indicate where the PE (potential energy) is the greatest/least and where the KE (kinetic energy) is greatest/least.
Energy Transformations Quick review Mrs. G. Chen – Ring a bell? Can you list the types of energy? Mechanical Radiant (Electromagnetic) Sound Gravitational Chemical Heat (Thermal) Electric Nuclear
Let’s Make a Model Construct a model using the following materials to illustrate the transformation of energy. Label each energy transformation
