Energy. By Aimee Chavez. Energy. The ability to do work. Work : a transfer of energy. Both energy and work are measured in Joules J Energy and work are related. When work is done on an object energy is being transferred to the object. Law of Conservation of Energy.
GPE = mgh
m: mass g: acceleration due gravity h: height
m : kg
g = 9.8 m/s² Earth
ht : m
To convert from mass to weight multiply by 9.8
Mass x 9.8 = Weight (N)
When atoms move faster the Thermal Energy will increase and the object will become warmer.
The energy stored in atomic nuclei.
Nuclear power plant uses fission reactions by splitting nuclei apart. This process releases energy.
Nuclear fusion releases energy when less massive nuclei combine to form a more massive nucleus.
