How much energy is one joule not much

What is energy?

  • Energy is the ability to do work

  • The unit of energy is the Joule, named after James Prescott Joule

    • This is also the unit of work, since energy and work are manifestations of the same thing

  • How much energy is one Joule?

  • Not much!

    • One Joule is the amount of energy it takes to lift a small apple to a height of one meter on the earth

    • Often we talk about kiloJoules, thousands of Joules


How much energy is one joule not much

Energy can take many forms

  • Mechanical-Kinetic and Potential

  • Light

  • Electrical

  • Nuclear

  • Heat

  • Chemical


Chemical energy
Chemical Energy

  • Type of potential energy









Mechanical energy
Mechanical Energy

Potential + Kinetic = Mechanical

How much energy is one joule not much

KINETIC ENERGY

Energy of Motion


Law of conservation of energy
Law of Conservation of Energy

Energy cannot be created nor destroyed but can converted into another form of energy.


How much energy is one joule not much

Energy is conserved

  • It may change forms but you cannot lose energy

  • A falling apple illustrates the relationship between potential and kinetic energy

    • You can convert it to a form that does not do work such as heat lost as friction

Kinetic energy increases as it falls

Potential energy decreases as it falls

How much energy is one joule not much

Electrical energy  light and sound energy


How much energy is one joule not much

Chemical potential energy  light and heat energy


How much energy is one joule not much

  • Electrical energy may power a light bulb and be converted to lightenergy.

  • The light energy also produces heatenergy.

Conduction
Conduction

  • Transfer of heat energy from one solid object to another when they are in direct contact.


How much energy is one joule not much


Convection
Convection heat energy through themselves are called

  • Process of heat transfer in fluids (liquids and gases) by means of rising and falling currents.

  • When a region of liquid or gas absorbs heat energy, its molecules move faster, and the distance between them increases.

  • The region of fluid expands as a result and becomes less dense than its surroundings.


Radiation
Radiation heat energy through themselves are called

  • Transfer of heat energy in the form of electromagnetic waves

  • The same kinds of energy waves transfer heat and light energy from the Sun as it radiates energy to Earth.

  • Infrared heat energy through themselves are called electromagnetic waves are sensed by nerves in the skin as heat.

  • All warm bodies radiate heat energy in the form of infrared electromagnetic waves.
