Section 1 What Is Energy?
Chapter 9
Objectives
• Explain the relationship between energy and
work.
• Compare kinetic energy and potential energy.
• Describe the different forms of energy.

Section 1 What Is Energy?
Chapter 9
Energy and Work Working Together
• Energy is the ability to do work.
• Work is done when a force causes an object to
move in the direction of the force. Work is a
transfer of energy.
• Energy and work are expressed in units of joules
(J).

Kinetic Energy
• Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. All
moving objects have kinetic energy.
• Kinetic Energy Depends on Mass and Speed If you
know an objects mass (m) and its speed (v), you
can calculate the objects kinetic energy with
the following equation

Potential Energy
• Potential energy is the energy an object has
because of its position.
• Gravitational Potential Energy The amount of
gravitational potential energy that an object has
depends on its weight and its height.

Potential Energy, continued
• Calculating Gravitational Potential Energy The
equation to find gravitational potential energy
is
• gravitational potential energy ? weight ? height
• Gravitational potential energy is equal to the
amount of work done on an object to lift it a
certain height.

9
Section 1 What Is Energy?
Chapter 9
Potential Energy, continued
• Height Above What? When you find out an
objects gravitational potential energy, the
ground that you measure the objects height
from depends on where it is.
• The height you use in calculating gravitational
potential energy is a measure of how far an
object has to fall.

10
Section 1 What Is Energy?
Chapter 9
Mechanical Energy
• Mechanical energy is the total energy of motion
and position of an object. Both kinetic energy
and potential energy are kinds of mechanical
energy.
• The equation to find mechanical energy is
• mechanical energy ? potential energy ? kinetic
energy

11
Section 1 What Is Energy?
Chapter 9
Mechanical Energy, continued
• The mechanical energy of an object remains the
same unless it transfers some energy to another
object.
• But even if the mechanical energy of an object
stays the same, the potential energy or kinetic
energy can increase or decrease.

12
Section 1 What Is Energy?
Chapter 9
Other Forms of Energy
• Thermal Energy is all of the kinetic energy due
to random motion of the particles that make up an
object.
• All matter is made up of particles that are
always in random motion. So, all matter has
thermal energy.
• Thermal energy increases as temperature
increases and increases as the number of
particles increases.

Other Forms of Energy, continued
• Chemical Energy is the energy of a chemical
compound that changes as its atoms are
rearranged.
• Chemical energy is a form of potential energy
because it depends on the position and
arrangement of the atoms in a compound.
• The energy in food is chemical energy.

15

Chapter 9
Other Forms of Energy, continued
• Electrical Energy is the energy of moving
electrons. Electrical energy can be thought of as
potential energy that is used when you plug in an
electrical appliance and use it.
• Sound Energy is caused by an objects
vibrations. The objects vibrations transmit some
kinetic energy to the air particles, which also
vibrate. These vibrations transmit sound energy.

16
Section 1 What Is Energy?
Chapter 9
Other Forms of Energy, continued
• Light Energy is produced by the vibrations of
electrically charged particles.
• Nuclear Energy is energy that comes from changes
in the nucleus of an atom. Nuclear energy can be
produced when nuclei are joined in a fusion
reaction or when a nucleus is split apart in a
fission reaction.

17
Section 2 Energy Conversions
Chapter 9
Objectives
• Describe an energy conversion.
• Give examples of energy conversions for the
different forms of energy.
• Explain how energy conversions make energy
useful.
• Explain the role of machines in energy
conversions.

18
Section 2 Energy Conversions
Chapter 9
Kinetic Energy and Potential Energy
• An energy conversion is a change from one form
of energy to another. Any form of energy can
change into any other form of energy.
• As the skateboarder on the next slide travels up
and down the half-pipe, his energy changes back
and forth between kinetic energy and potential
energy.

Kinetic Energy and Potential Energy, continued
• Elastic Potential Energy Stretching a rubber
band stores elastic potential energy in the
rubber band.
• When you let the rubber band go, it goes back to
its original shape. It releases its stored-up
potential energy as it does so.

Conversions Involving Chemical Energy
• Chemical energy is stored in the food you eat.
Your body uses this chemical energy to function.
• Energy Conversion in Plants The chemical energy
in the food you eat comes from the suns energy.
Plants use photosynthesis to convert light energy
into chemical energy, as shown on the next slide.

Conversions Involving Chemical Energy, continued
• The Process Continues Plants change light
energy into chemical energy. The chemical energy
in the food you eat is changed into another kind
of chemical energy that your body can use.
• Your body then uses that energy to give you
kinetic energy that you use in everything you do.

24
Section 2 Energy Conversions
Chapter 9
Why Energy Conversions Are Important
• Energy conversions are needed for everything we
do. Heating our homes, getting energy from a
meal, and many other things use energy
conversions.
• Machines, such as a hair dryer, help harness
energy and make that energy work for you.

• Conversions Involving Electrical Energy Some
common energy conversions that involve electrical
energy are shown in the table below.

Alarm clock electrical energy ? light and sound energy
Battery chemical energy ? electrical energy
Light bulb electrical energy ? light and thermal energy
Blender electrical energy ? kinetic and sound energy

Energy and Machines
• A machine can make work easier by changing the
size or direction (or both) of the force needed
to do the work. Some machines allow you to use
less force over a greater distance to do the same
amount of work.
• Machines as Energy Converters Some machines
help you use energy by converting it into the
form of energy that you need.

Section 3 Conservation of Energy
Chapter 9
Objectives
• Explain how energy is conserved within a closed
system.
• Explain the law of conservation of energy.
• Give examples of how thermal energy is always a
result of energy conversion.
• Explain why perpetual motion is impossible.

29
Section 3 Conservation of Energy
Chapter 9
Where Does the Energy Go?
• Friction is a force that oppose motion between
two surfaces that are touching.
• For a roller coaster car to move, energy must be
used to overcome the friction between the cars
wheels and the track.
• As a result, not all of the cars potential
energy changes into kinetic energy and not all of
the cars kinetic energy changes back into
potential energy.

Section 3 Conservation of Energy
Chapter 9
Energy Is Conserved Within a Closed System
• A closed system is a group of objects that
transfer energy only to each other.
• The Law of Conservation of Energy states that
energy cannot be created or destroyed.
• Energy can be converted from one form to
another. But all of the different forms of energy
in a system always add up to the same total
amount of energy.

32

continued
• The image below shows energy conservation in a
light bulb.

33
Section 3 Conservation of Energy
Chapter 9
No Conversion Without Thermal Energy
• Any time one form of energy is converted into
another form, some of the original energy always
gets converted into thermal energy.
• The thermal energy due to friction that results
from energy conversions is not usually useful
energy.

34
Section 3 Conservation of Energy
Chapter 9
No Conversion Without Thermal Energy, continued
• Perpetual Motion? No Way! A perpetual motion
machine is a machine that would run forever
without any additional energy.
• But perpetual motion machines are impossible
because some waste thermal energy always results
from energy conversions.

35
Section 3 Conservation of Energy
Chapter 9
No Conversion Without Thermal Energy, continued
• Making Conversions Efficient Some systems
transform energy with less loss of heat than
others do. Such systems are more efficient than
others are.
• Improving the efficiency of machines is
important because greater efficiency results in
less waste. If less energy is wasted, less energy
is needed to operate a machine.

36
Section 4 Energy Resources
Chapter 9
Objectives
• Name several energy resources.
• Explain how the sun is the source of most energy
on Earth.
• Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of
using various energy resources.

37
Section 4 Energy Resources
Chapter 9
Nonrenewable Resources
• Nonrenewable resources cannot be replaced or are
replaced much more slowly than they are used.
• Fossil fuels are nonrenewable energy resources
that formed from the remains of organisms that
lived long ago. Oil, natural gas, and coal are
the most common fossil fuels.

Chapter 9
Nonrenewable Resources, continued
• Uses of Fossil Fuels All fossil fuels contain
stored energy from the sun, which can be
converted into other kinds of energy.
• Burning coal is a common way to generate
electrical energy. Petroleum is used to make
gasoline, wax, and plastics. Natural gas is often
used in home heating.

40
Section 4 Energy Resources
Chapter 9
Nonrenewable Resources, continued
• Electrical Energy from Fossil Fuels Electric
generators convert the chemical energy in fossil
fuels into electrical energy by the process shown
below.

41
Section 4 Energy Resources
Chapter 9
Nonrenewable Resources, continued
• Nuclear Energy Another way to generate
electrical energy is to use nuclear energy.
• In a process called nuclear fission, the nucleus
of a radioactive atom is split into two smaller
nuclei, which releases nuclear energy.
• Because the supply of radioactive elements is
limited, nuclear energy is a nonrenewable
resource.

42
Section 4 Energy Resources
Chapter 9
Renewable Resources
• Renewable resources are naturally replaced more
quickly than they are used.
• Solar Energy Sunlight can be changed into
electrical energy through solar cells.
• Solar cells can be used in devices such as
calculators. They can also be placed on the roof
of a house to provide electrical energy.

43
Section 4 Energy Resources
Chapter 9
Renewable Resources, continued
• Energy from Water The potential energy of water
in a reservoir can be changed into kinetic energy
as the water flows through a dam.
• In a hydroelectric dam, falling water turns
turbines. The turbines are connected to a
generator that changes kinetic energy into
electrical energy.

44
Section 4 Energy Resources
Chapter 9
Renewable Resources, continued
• Wind Energy The kinetic energy of wind can turn
the blades of a windmill or a wind turbine.
• A wind turbine changes the kinetic energy of the
air into electrical energy by turning a generator.

45
Section 4 Energy Resources
Chapter 9
Renewable Resources, continued
• Geothermal Energy is thermal energy caused by
the heating of Earths crust. This energy can be
converted into electrical energy at geothermal
power plants.
• Biomass is organic matter, such as plants, wood,
and waste, that can be burned to release energy.
Some countries depend on biomass for energy.

Section 4 Energy Resources
Chapter 9
The Two Sides to Energy Resources
• All energy resources have advantages and
disadvantages. Many factors determine when one
energy source is a better choice than another.
• Choosing the Right Energy Source Energy
planning in all parts of the world requires
careful consideration of energy needs and the
availability and responsible use of resources.
