Energy at Six Flags!!

This unit in physics we studied Conservation Laws of Energy. We learned about how to use bar graphs as energy flow diagrams. Energy is everywhere, although the amount of energy never changes, the method in which the energy is stored changes. Energy can be stored as elastic, kinetic, gravitational, potential, and chemical potential. We defined energy transfer as work or W. We learned how to find work, power, kinetic and potential energy, and the work energy theorem.

I made a Glogster to help explain this unit more effectively:



  1. Excellent posting, well explained, nicely composed Glogster and great illustrations with attributions!
    Great job!

  2. Very good posting. I feel that the roller coaster example is a little stock but otherwise very good.
