Essential Vocabulary & Concepts
Picture Core Knowledge or Concept
energy
Energy Energy is the ability to do work or cause a change.

The unit of energy is the Joule.
Kinetic
Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. It depends on mass and velocity.
(i.e. a book falling)

Potential
Potential energy is energy that is stored and ready to be released.
(i.e. a book on a table ready to fall)
  • Springs store elastic potential energy
  • Height stores gravitational potential energy.
Potential Energy = Weight * Height
(weight is in newtons, height in meters.) formula for gravity (Earth's = 9.8 m/s2)
Forms of Energy
Forms of energy and their sources
  • mechanical (motion): wind, water, machines, animals
  • thermal (heat): buring, the sun, electric heaters, chemical reactions
  • chemical (molecular bonds): chemical reactions, molecules
  • electrical (electrons): lightning, chemical reactions,  solar cells,  generators
  • electromagnetic(light, radio waves, x-rays, etc.): the sun, lights, heaters
  • nuclear (radiation). atoms breaking down or being made
Work
Work is the transfer of energy between objects.
(Like a force that makes an object move.)

work = force * distance
(force is in newtons, distance in meters.)

The unit of work is the Joule.​
fire starter
Energy conversion occurs when one type (form) of energy is changed into another.
(i.e. electricity into sound, motion into heat, etc.)

newton's cradle
The law of conservation of energy states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed.

Einstein's theory e=mc2 says that energy (e) can be converted to matter (m) and vice versa (and back again).
Fermi
Scientist

Enrico Fermi, the father of American Nuclear Physics at the University of Chicago. His work is continued in the Manhattan project, Argonne National Labs, and the Fermilab Accelerator in Batavia.
tesla
Technology

Lithium Ion Battery Technology: The new hot industry in Michigan is trying to turn cell phone and computer battery technology into a practical electric car.
