Unit 8: Energy Unit

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.  

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.
