Section 13.1 The Nature of
Energy
 Energy - The ability to do work or cause
  change, such as moving an object some
  distance
 Two kinds of energy
    Kinetic energy (KE) - energy of motion
    Potential energy (PE) - stored energy
    (gravitational or spring)
 KE = 1/2 mass x velocity2
 PE = mass x acceleration due to gravity (9.8
  m/sec2) x height
                      Chapter 13
Other types of energy
 Thermal  energy - heat
 Chemical energy - chemical
  reaction/bonds
 Electromagnetic energy - light, radiation
 Electrical energy - electricity
 Nuclear energy - fission, fusion



                   Chapter 13
Section 13.2 Energy
conversion and conservation
   energy conversion - the process of changing
    one form of energy into another
      body - convert chemical energy in food to
      mechanical energy to move muscles
      match - mechanical  thermal  chemical 
      thermal  light
      Book examples - juggling, waterfall, pole vault,
      pendulum
   Conservation of energy - energy cannot be
    created or destroyed

                          Chapter 13
friction -
 reducesefficiency, converts mechanical
 to thermal energy




                 Chapter 13
Section 13.3 Energy
conversions and fossil fuels
   Fossil fuels - contain energy that came from
    the sun.
      Formed from the remains of ancient plants and
      animals.
      coal, petroleum, natural gas - chemical potential
      energy
 Energy conversions pg. 424 - Flowchart
 Fossil fuels can be burned to release the
  potential chemical energy

                         Chapter 13
Section 13.4 - Power
 Power  - The rate at which work is done
 power = work/time     power = force x
  distance/time
 power units = J/sec = Watts (W)
 sample problems pg.427
 Power is the rate at which energy is
  transferred from one object to another
  or converted from one form to another.

                  Chapter 13

 law of conservation of energy
 fossil fuels
 power
