Unit 1 by Gabriel Salomon-Vazquez
Energy: the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity.
Types Of Energy
l: is the mechanical potential energy stored in the configuration of a material or physical system as it is subjected to elastic deformation by work performed upon it.
: is the energy that it possesses due to its motion.
:potential energy is the energy held by an object because of its position relative to other objects, stresses within itself, its electric charge, or other factors
: refers to the energy contained within a system that is responsible for its temperature. Can be measured with Fahrenheit or
:any or all of several kinds of phenomena, considered as mechanisms, that convey energy and entropy from one location to another
: is the transfer of heat due to the bulk movement of molecules within fluids, including molten rock.
:In physics, radiation is the emission or transmission of energy in the form of waves or particles through space or through a material medium
: is the transfer of internal energy by microscopic collisions of particles and movement of electrons within a body
: The condition under which two substances in physical contact with each other exchange no heat energy. Two substances in thermal equilibrium are said to be at the same temperature.
States of Matter
: is the transition between solid, liquid, and gaseous states of matter, as well as plasma in rare cases. A phase of a thermodynamic system and the states of matter have uniform physical properties.
: the process of turning from liquid into vapor. The
is at 100 degrees
: the process of gas turning into liquid
: is the transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas state, without passing through the liquid state.
: liquid to solid. The
is 0 degrees
: solid to liquid.
: mechanical energy is power that an object gets from its position and motion.
Gravitational potential energy
: is energy an object possesses because of its position in a gravitational field
: It's a law that states that the total energy of an isolated system remains constant; it is said to be conserved over time.
:the process of changing energy from one form to another.
