Kinetic energy is the energy an object has due to its motion. The higher the kinetic energy the lower the potential
-I can define kinetic energy and I can identify and explain examples of kinetic energy
this is because the ship is in motion and kinetic energy is an energy that has motion.
An example of kinetic energy would be this moving ship
An example of potential energy would be this ride waiting to start. This ride has potential energy right now because it’s not moving, once it starts the ride will start converting potential to kinetic energy.
-I can define potential energy and I can identify and explain examples of potential energy
Potential energy is defined as mechanical energy, stored energy or energy caused by its position. The higher the potential energy the lower the kinetic.
Some of the forms of energy are chemical energy, mechanical energy, thermal energy and so much more. All of these are found throughout life. This cake would be an example of chemical energy and when you're ready to blow out the candles, the fire would represent thermal energy. There are so many types of energy we use every day
- I can provide examples of the forms of energy
-I can identify and provide examples of conduction and convection.
Conduction is how heat transfers through direct contact. An example of this would be a pot of water being boiled, the pot is being touched by the fire of the stove which allows the water to boil. Convection is how heat transfers through fluids. Convection also happens when boiling water, in cold water at the bottom heats up from the energy of the burner.
-I can identify and provide examples of radiation.
Radiation- Radiation is the transfer of heat through space. An example of radiation is the sun warming you up when you stand outside.
