Graphing Energy Conversions


All energy is the ability to do work we just have different clues to keep track of
All Energy is the ability to do work – we just have different clues to keep track of!

  • Gravitational PE

    • Height above ground

  • Elastic PE

    • Stretching or Compression

  • Chemical PE

    • Food (not yet eaten)

    • Gasoline (not yet burned)

    • Battery (not yet used)


Gravitational pe
Gravitational PE different clues to keep track of!

Any time an object has height above a reference point.

Can have Kinetic Energy at the same time.


Let s look at it in action

Practice graph the energy in the rubber band at these 3 points in time
Practice: different clues to keep track of!Graph the Energy in the Rubber Band at these 3 points in time

  • Lamar stretches a rubber band and points it at Ms. Nicholson.

  • He lets go and it launches through the air.

  • His aim is bad and it misses Ms. Nicholson and falls on the floor. (Graph the energy RIGHT BEFORE it hits the floor!)
