Conservation of Energy and Momentum
Broad Concept: The laws of conservation of energy and momentum provide alternate approaches to predict and describe the movement of objects.
|2.1 ||Interpret and provide examples that illustrate the law of conservation of energy. *|
|2.2 ||Provide examples of how energy can be transformed from kinetic to potential and vice versa.|
|2.3 ||Apply quantitatively the law of conservation of mechanical energy to simple systems.|
|2.4 ||Describe the relationship among energy, work, and power both conceptually and quantitatively.|
|2.5 ||Interpret the law of conservation of momentum and provide examples that illustrate it. Calculate the momentum of an object.|
|2.6 ||Identify appropriate standard international units of measurement for energy, work, power, and momentum.|
