Solar vs. Kinetic Energy

Battle for the best energy

Solar energy-is heating up

Solar energy.

  • Sun beams on earth enough to satisfy global energy for a year
  • It is a technology to harness the sun energy to be useable
  • Solar energy doesn't work at night without a storage device such as batteries
  • solar cells generate energy for far-out places like satellites in Earth orbit and cabins deep in the Rocky Mountains as easily as they can power downtown buildings and futuristic cars.
  • The power of the sun is solar energy and helps earth

Kinetic energy

  • Is energy a object posses when it is in motion
  • The energy is defined by the amount of work needed to accelerate a given mass from rest (being still) to its current velocity.
  • The mass will maintain its level of kinetic energy until its speed changes
  • Ex. If you shoot a rubber band it is kinetic energy or throwing a football
