I believe you can do better! Please try again…. Rusty, you have used your potential – great work – I knew you could do it!!!
The rubber band has potential energy The person has potential energy The weight has potential energy Potential energy is stored energy.Potential energy has no motion; its energy is not being used. Person on diving board Stretched rubber band Hanging weight 50 tons
If you looked at the 5 pictures in this film strip just one at a time… The word “kinetic” means moving The words “kinetic” and “cinema” both come from the same Greek word for moving. Movie cinemas show moving pictures. click here to play movie …they would look like this:
50 tons Kinetic energy is moving energy(remember: kinetic is just another word for moving) Person falling into water Flying rubber band Falling weight 50 tons
Potential energy can change into kinetic energy The skier at the top of the mountain has a lot of potential energy. As the skier goes down the mountain, her potential energy turns into kinetic energy. Once the skier has stopped, she has no more potential or kinetic energy.

Remember that everything is made of atoms: Water is just 2 hydrogen atoms stuck with 1 oxygen atom (H2O) H H H H H H H H O O O O O O O O H H H H H H H H Water molecules magnified 50,000,000 times Glass of water
H H H H H O O O O O H H H H H All atoms and molecules vibrate –they have energy and are always shaking Some molecules of water: Remember that a “molecule” is just a bunch of atoms stuck together. Water is just 2 atoms of hydrogen connected to 1 atom of oxygen. I finally stopped moving Well actually, you are still moving. Although you look still, all the atoms in your body are always vibrating. Your atoms and their vibrations are just too tiny for our eyes to see. Help! I can’t stop moving!
H H H O O O H H H Molecules with more energy vibrate faster:to say a molecule vibrates a lot is the same as saying the molecule has a lot of kinetic energy 3 molecules of water with different amounts of kinetic energy: Low kinetic energy Medium kinetic energy High kinetic energy (low vibration) (medium vibration) (high vibration)
H H O O H H Heat/temperature is just a measurement of how much kinetic (vibrating) energy something has 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 Low energy High energy
HEAT and TEMPERATURE are not the same thing • Heat is the total kinetic energy something has (another word for heat is thermal energy) • Temperature is the average kinetic energy something has • We’ll now see exactly what this difference means…
Let’s write some imaginary numbers for each water molecule to measure how much energy they have 2 5 10
9 3 5 10 2 10 + 5 4 + Heat is the total kinetic energy Bottle B Bottle A 9 5 3 2 32 16 10 5 10 4 Bottle B has 32 heat units Bottle A has 16 heat units
5 2 5 4 + Bottle A has more heat than Bottle B Bottle B Bottle A 5 10 2 16 5 4 Bottle B has 10 heat units Bottle A has 16 heat units
9 8 10 + 5 2 5 4 + Temperature is the average kinetic energy Bottle B Bottle A 9 5 8 2 27 16 10 5 4 16 ÷ 4 molecules = 4 27 ÷ 3 molecules = 9 Bottle A has 4 temperature units Bottle B has 9 temperature units
5 2 5 4 + Bottle B has a higher temperature than Bottle A Bottle B Bottle A 5 2 10 16 5 4 Bottle A has 4 temperature units (16 ÷ 4 molecules = 4) Bottle B has 10 temperature units (10 ÷ 1 molecule = 10)
Question: Why might you quickly stick your hand into a hot oven (450° F) but you would never quickly stick your hand into a pot of boiling water (212° F)? OUCH! Boiling water (212° F) Answer: Boiling water has a lot more heat than the oven’s air (even though the air has a higher temperature). The oven’s air is less dense than the pot’s water. Pretty hot! Oven (450° F)
An iceberg has a lower temperature than a burning match, but much more heat! A match has a greater temperature than the iceberg because the average molecule in the match is moving faster than the average molecule in the iceberg. The iceberg has more heat than the match because it is SO MUCH LARGER, so all of its slow moving molecules have more total kinetic energy than the match’s molecules.

A: The house that’s 70° F A: False Q: When an atom cools off, what happens to its vibration? Q: Are all atoms still or vibrating? A: They are always vibrating. The more they vibrate, the more heat & temperature they have A: It vibrates more slowly Q: If 1 molecule in something vibrates more quickly, what will increase? 1) only heat 2) only temperature 3) heat and temperature 4) nothing Q: What measures the average kinetic energy of something? A: Temperature A: heat and temperature Q: What measures the total kinetic energy of something? A: Heat
Heatmoves from hot objects to cold objects Let’s add some hot coffee to the cup… The heat from the coffee goes into the cup because the cup is colder than the coffee. The coffee cools off and the cup warms up until they have the same temperature.

finger Because ice is colder than your finger, the heat from your finger moves into the ice. Heat moves from hot things to cold things Ice does not make your finger colder by adding coldness to your finger. Ice makes your finger colder by stealing heat away from your finger, leaving your finger colder. 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 heat ice

Conductors are materials that let heat pass through them easily Insulators are materials that don’t let heat pass through them easily Heat moves through some materials more easily than others I N S U L A T O R C O N D U C T O R heat heat heat heat
Clothes do not give you heat; clothes keep you warm because they trap your body’s heat. My wool hat is a great insulator. Insulators don’t let heat go through them. My body’s heat now stays with me. heat heat heat heat Brrrr – it’s freezing outside! heat heat

Circle all the objects below that are heat insulators: plastic metal cotton wood wool A: A conductor is something that lets heat move through it easily; an insulator is something that does not let heat move through it easily. Q: If a metal desk leg and a wooden desk leg both have a temperature of 75˚ F, why does the metal leg feel colder? Q: What is wrong with Alexi’s statement: “I will put on my socks because my socks give me extra heat”? A: Metal is a good conductor, so it easily steals the heat away from your hand, causing your hand to get/feel cold. Wood is a good insulator: it does not steal much heat away from your hand. A: Unless the socks are warmer than Alexi, they don’t give him any heat. However, socks are good insulators; they trap the heat in Alexi’s feet and don’t let it escape. Q: Hey, guess what? A: That’s what.
