These printable flash cards on the nature of energy are great for physics classes.
There are 15 flash cards in this set (3 pages to print.)
1. Print out the cards.
2. Cut along the dashed lines.
3. Fold along the solid lines.
Sample flash cards in this set:
|Law of Conservation of Energy||Energy cannot be destroyed, total energy should always be the same in a closed system.|
|Energy||The ability to cause change|
|Work||The transfer of energy that occurs when a force is applied over a distance|
|Joule (J)||Unit measure for energy and work|
|Chemical Potential Energy||Energy stored in chemical bonds|
|Gravitational Potential Energy||Stored energy in an object that can fall|
|Elastic Potential Energy||Stored energy in an object that can stretch or compress (ex. rubber bands)|
|Kinetic Energy||The energy of an object in motion|
|Mechanical Energy||The energy of an object that is moving or has potential to move|
|Chemical Energy||Energy from fuel (ex. food you eat, chemical reactions|
|Sound Energy||Carried by sound waves, when objects are made to vibrate producing sound|
|Thermal Energy||Heat energy from particles in matter due to their random motion|
|Electric Energy||Energy found in the flow of electrons, carried in an electrical current (ex. batteries)|
|Nuclear energy||Stored in nucleus of an atom, when released atom split (ex. atomic energy)|
|Radiant Energy or solar energy||From sun, carried by electromagnetic waves|
