What is the difference between 'work done' and 'energy is transferred'?
There is no difference.
1 of 8
What is the formula for gravitational potential energy?
Ep=MXGXH
2 of 8
What is the formula for work done?
W=FXD
3 of 8
What is the formula for kinetic energy?
Ek=1/2XMXVsquared (2)

Complete the equation/phrase: kinetic energy gained=potential...
Kinetic energy gained=potential energy lost. The further it falls, the faster it goes.
5 of 8
What is some of this kinetic energy gained from potential energy lost then transferred into?
Heat and sound.
6 of 8
How do space shuttles cope with heat?
They have heat shields which are made from special materials which lose heat quickly.
7 of 8
How is some of the kinetic energy of space shuttles and meteors transferred to heat energy?
Through friction due to collisions with particles in the atmosphere.
