What is energy?

ENERGY is the ability to make things

move or change

Measured in Joules (J)

Kinetic Energy

KINETIC ENERGY is the energy of motion

It is a SCALAR quantity – it does not have

direction

Depends on mass and speed

Kinetic Energy

Formula:

KE = ½mv

2

mass (in

velocity (in

kg)

1 Joule = kg m/s)

• m2/s2

Kinetic Energy

The bird has a mass of 2 kg. It is

flying at a speed of 5 m/s. Find its

KE

= ? energy.

kinetic

m = 2 kg

v = 5 m/s

KE = ½mv2

KE = ½(2 kg)(5 m/s)2

= 25 J

What is the unit for energy?

What are the two kinds of energy of

motion?

What does kinetic mean?

What does KE depend on?

KE ~ Square of the speed

The kinetic energy of an object is directly

proportional to the square of its speed.

That means that for a twofold increase in speed,

the kinetic energy will increase by a factor of four.

How would a threefold increase in speed afect the

kinetic energy?

What would a graph of KE as a function of speed

look like?

Potential Energy

An object with POTENTIAL ENERGY has the

ability (or potential) to move or change

Sometimes called “energy of position” or

“stored energy”

There are 3 types of potential energy:

Gravitational Potential Energy

Elastic Potential Energy

Chemical Potential Energy

Gravitational Potential Energy

Potential Energy due to an object’s

position

Formula:

PE = mgh

height (in

mass (in

meters)

kg)

acceleration of

gravity (9.8

2

Gravitational Potential Energy

If your egg drop device has a mass of 2

kg, how much potential energy does it

hold at a height of 10 meters?

PE =

PE = ?

mgh

PE =

(2 kg)(9.8 m/s2)(10 m) =

m = 2 kg

196 J

g = 9.8

m/s2

h = 10 m

Gravitational Potential Energy

•The person

has more

potential

energy at the

top of the

stairs than at

the bottom.

Gravitational Potential Energy

Where does the egg have more

potential energy? Why?

Elastic Potential Energy

Potential energy due compression or

expansion of an elastic object

Chemical Potential Energy

Potential energy stored within the

chemical bonds of an object

By the end of the day today, IWBAT…

•Introduce Conservation of Energy (COE)

and use COE to solve for KE and PE

What is the total energy of a 5 kg toy car

traveling 4 m/s on top of a table that is 1 m of

the ground?

(use 10 m/s2 for g)
