Changing Energy

Changing Energy from one form to another.

Energy Transfers

Energy Transfers when you move an object with another object. For example when you push or pull on something it transfers energy.


Check out the video below for an example of energy transferring from Tai Lung to Po (from Kung Fu Panda).

Energy Changes Form

Energy changes form when you move. For example, when you are running down a hill most of the energy isn't your feet, it is gravity right? Well that is called kinetic and potential energy. Also, when you are using energy from your feet it is a different story. When you are using energy from your body and running it is called kinetic energy.

The Flow of Energy

When electricity moves and changes into a different energy or form of energy. Sometimes it will move to a different object or it will just move throughout one object.

Electricity and Circuits

Electricity starts to travel when you connect a wire, a d-cell, and an object that receives electricity and have no open spaces to make a complete circuit. A series circuit is when there is only one path for electricity to follow and a parallel circuit is when a circuit has two or more path ways for electricity to follow.

Words to Know

Circuit: Something that electricity can travel through.

Series: When in a circuit there is only one path for electricity to follow.

Parallel: When a circuit has two or more ways for electricity to follow.

Energy Transfer: When energy from one thing is transfered to another.
