Name chemical energy stores


2 of 23

What’s kinetic energy

Moving objects

3 of 23

What’s thermal energy

Hot objects

4 of 23

What’s strain/elastic potential

Stretched or squashed objects

5 of 23

Name energy transfers


6 of 23

Can energy be destroyed and created


7 of 23

How does energy move

It moves by being transferred from one form to another

8 of 23

Efficiency equation

Efficiency =
Useful energy transferred by device
Divide by
Total energy

9 of 23

How is energy stored

Energy is stored due to an objects position in a gravitational field

10 of 23

Which objects have a store of GPE

any object above the surface of the earth

11 of 23

What’s the equation for change inGPE

Change in GPE=

Mass (kg) x GFS (N/kg) x change in vertical height (m)

12 of 23

How is energy stored (kinetic)

Energy is stored in moving objects (kinetic). Kinetic energy is stored in moving objects depends on its speed

13 of 23

Equation for calculating kinetic energy

Kinetic = 1/2 x mass x (speed)2

14 of 23

What is energy measured in


15 of 23

Work the GPE our - airplane flying at 50 m/ s at 5

900 x 10x 500 = 4500000 joules

16 of 23

How does energy spread out

It is dissipated to the surroundings

17 of 23

Is water a good or bad conductor


18 of 23

Good insulator are a food or bad conductor (heat)

Good insulators are a poor conductor of heat eg. Air particles are spread out so do not pass energy along

19 of 23

Why are polar bears furry

To keep them warm. They have layers of fur with air trapped between them which act like an insulator

20 of 23

Does a good insulator have a good or bad thermal c

What is thermal conductivity

A measure of how easily easily energy is transferred through a material by heating

22 of 23

Rate of energy transfer is reduced by ....

Increasing thickness
Decreasing thermal conductivity
Decreasing temperature difference
