View Resource The Physics Classroom: Energy Transformation for Downhill Skiing

Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this page features an animation of a skiier descending down a 58-meter slope. The first part of the animation depicts the changing ratio of potential-to-kinetic energy. At the end of the run, the skiier encounters unpacked snow and loses total mechanical energy to the dissipative force of friction. Bar graphs for W (Work) and TME (Total...

View Resource The Physics Classroom: Which Path Requires the Most Energy?

Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this page features animations of carts traveling at constant speed on three inclines of equal distance but varying slopes. Students can observe how the variables of force and displacement affect the amount of work done by each cart. The question for students to consider is which path requires the most energy. This item is part of The Physics...

View Resource LivePhoto Physics

This website consists of a collection of short videos designed for computer analysis in introductory physics classrooms. The videos are 20-40 photograph frames in length and each depict a physical process commonly discussed in beginning courses. Positions of objects in the video frame can be viewed in step motion or real-time. Position and time data may be measured and collected by using...

View Resource Florida Solar Energy Center: K-12 Curricula

This website contains nine sets of curriculum materials on renewable energy sources, organized into units of instruction for Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. In the High Energy Hydrogen units, students investigate how a fuel cell converts energy directly into usable electric power and why the process is pollution-free. The award-winning Solar Matters collection includes manuals for building a...

View Resource The Physics Classroom: The Work-Energy Theorem

Created by author Tom Henderson, this page is a tutorial that features bar charts to explore the relationship between work and energy. Work-Energy bar charts are a conceptual tool which depict the amount of each form of energy within a system as it undergoes a particular motion or process. This resource offers comprehensive guidance in how to read and understand energy bar charts, animations...
