what is work done measured in...
work done is measured in Joules (J)
1 of 18
what is the equation for work done?
work done = force x distance moved in direction of force (W= Fs)
2 of 18
what is work done?
work done is the energy transferred
3 of 18
what is power?
power is the rate of transfer of energy
4 of 18
what is the equation for power?
work done/ time taken or energy transferred/ time taken
5 of 18
what is power measured in?
power is measured in Watts (W)
6 of 18
what is the conservation of energy
energy is conserved and cannot be created or destroyed
7 of 18
how do you measure efficiency
efficiency = useful energy output/ total energy input
8 of 18
what happens to wasted energy?
wasted energy is usually in a form that is not useful and is eventually dissipated in the surroundings as heat
9 of 18
how is gravitational gained
gravitational energy is gained by an object because of it height
10 of 18
what is the equation for gravitational potential energy
gravitational potential energy = mass x gravitational field strength x height (Ep = mgh)
11 of 18
what is the equation for weight
weight = mass x gravitational field strength (W=mg)
12 of 18
how is kinetic energy stored
kinetic energy is stored by an object moving
13 of 18
what is the equation for kinetic energy
kinetic energy = 1/2 mass x velocity2 (1/2 Ek = 1/2 mv2)
14 of 18
what is a renewable energy source?
an renewable energy source is one that can be replenished as it is used
15 of 18
what are the main energy sources
wind, water (hydroelectric), tides, waves, biofuel, geothermal resources, solar cells, fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas),nuclear power
16 of 18
what are energy resources used for
they are used for transport, heating and electricity geneartion
17 of 18
why can't science deall with advantages and disadvantages of energy resources
they cannot because of political, social, ethical and economic concerns.
