From Here to There: How Energy Moves and Changes


Students will describe how energy changes from one form to another and model where all energy goes and explain that no energy is lost.


Summary


SEEd PHYS.2.3 Develop and use models on the macroscopic scale to illustrate that energy can be accounted for as a combination of energies associated with the motion of objects and energy associated with the relative positions of objects. Emphasize relationships between components of the model to show that energy is conserved. Examples could include mechanical systems where kinetic energy is transformed to potential energy or vice versa. (PS3.A)
