### Waves

Unit:  Waves

Sound and light transfer energy from one location to another as waves. Characteristics of waves include wavelength, amplitude, and frequency. Waves can combine with one another, bend around corners, reflect off surfaces, be absorbed by materials they enter, and change direction when entering a new material. All these effects vary with wavelength. Observable waves include mechanical and electromagnetic waves. Mechanical waves transport energy through a medium. Electromagnetic radiation is differentiated by wavelength or frequency, and includes radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, x-rays, and gamma rays. These wavelengths vary from radio waves (the longest) to gamma rays (the shortest). In empty space all electromagnetic waves move at the same speed, the “speed of light.”

### Unit 8: Energy

Unit 8:  Energy!!!!
Short Writing for the Unit (Like a chapter from a book)

The total energy of the universe is constant; however, the total amount of energy available for useful transformation is almost always decreasing.  Energy can be converted from one form to another and move from one system to another.  Transformation of energy usually produces heat that spreads to cooler places by radiation, convection, or conduction.  Energy can be classified as potential or kinetic energy.  Potential energy is stored energy and includes chemical, gravitational, electrostatic, elastic and nuclear.  Kinetic energy is the energy of motion.

STANDARD 4:  STUDENTS WILL UNDERSTAND TRANSFER AND CONSERVATION OF ENERGY.
Objective 1:  Determine kinetic and potential energy in a system.
Objective 2:  Describe conservation of energy in terms of systems.
Objective 3:  Describe common energy transformation and the effect on availability of energy.

### Unit 7: Momentum

Unit 7:  Momentum and Impulse

• Momentum = Mass x Velocity
• p = mv
• Impulse = change in Momentum = Force x time = mass x (change in velocity)
• J =Ft = m(v-v.)
• Conservation of Momentum:  Initial System Momentum = Final System Momentum
• Pi = Pf
• (initial)m1v1+m2v2=(final)m1v1+m2v2

### Unit 3 - Constant Acceleration

Unit 3 - Constant Acceleration

(You do not need to know this until AP physics, but some of you want to know how)

Science Benchmark
The motion of an object can be described by measurements of its position at different times. Velocity is a measure of the rate of change of position of an object.  Acceleration is a measure of the rate of change of velocity of an object.  This change in velocity may be a change in speed and/or direction.  Motion is defined relative to the frame of reference from which it is observed. An object's sate of motion will remain constant unless unbalanced forces act upon the object.  This is Newton's first law of motion.

Standard 1:  Students will understand how to measure, calculate, and describe the motion of an object in terms of position, time, velocity, and acceleration.
• Calculate the average velocity of a moving object using data obtained from measurements of position of the object at two or more times.
• Determine and compare the average and instantaneous velocity of an object from data showing its position at given times.
• Collect, graph, and interpret data for position vs. time to describe the motion of an object and  compare this motion to the motion of another object.
