KS3 Phyics - Energy,  Forms of Energy, Transfers, Transformations, Diagrams, Conservation, FuelsQuick View

KS3 Phyics - Energy, Forms of Energy, Transfers, Transformations, Diagrams, Conservation, Fuels

This resource includes a highly visual PowerPoint presentation (over 90 slides!) on the topic of ENERGY, forms of energy, energy transformations and energy diagrams. The presentation uses many visual aids and is thoughtfully animated to promote participation from learners of all abilities. Two worksheets and sample exam questions (71 questions with ANSWERS!)) are also included. Appropriate for year 7 or year 8 pupils. Students will learn: 1. that energy is the capacity or ability to do work (the ability to make matter change) 2. that generally, there are 2 types of energy: potential energy and kinetic energy 3. that there are many forms of potential and kinetic energy including: thermal energy (heat), electromagnetic energy (radiated), sound energy, gravitational potential energy (GPE), elastic potential, nuclear, chemical energy and electrical energy. 4. that gravitational energy depends on an object's mass and height above the earth's surface 5. that kinetic energy depends on an object's mass and how fast it is moving 6. that energy is transformed from one form to another 7. that a fuel is stored energy, which must be burnt to release the energy 8. Fuel + Oxygen = Energy + Carbon Dioxide + Water + Waste Product 9. that most of the Earth's energy ultimately comes from the Sun 10. that energy sources can be described as either renewable or Non-renewable 11. that Renewable means can be used again or replaced within a Iifetime 12. some advantages and disadvantages of energy sources 13. the need for energy saving with non-renewable energy sources and ultimately with all energy sources 14. to construct an energy transfer diagram 15. to construct a Sankey diagram 16. that energy is conserved in an energy transformation I hope you find this resource useful. Cheers.

AQA P3.4 Internal EnergyQuick View

AQA P3.4 Internal Energy

Suitable for the new AQA GCSE from 2016. A lesson PowerPoint with accompanying 8 mark question for pupils to assess their knowledge of internal energy. This question can be marked by the teacher or by peers using the mark scheme on the PowerPoint. Tasks are outlined in the PowerPoint presentation, with accompanying mark schemes. Slides go through detailed explanation of internal energy and allow for class discussions about the topic. Starter questions are also included to recap knowledge on changes of state, specifically about heating and cooling curves. Again mark scheme is provided to accompany this.

AQA Trilogy P1 Energy revisionQuick View

AQA Trilogy P1 Energy revision

Made using the AQA Trilogy specification. Contains 2 slides of activities to complete for the P1 Energy topic - lots of tricky calculations to get to grips with and a good way of identifying which need to be revised. I give these out at the end of each topic and also before holidays for exam preparation. I have made the boxes equal sizes so that they can be blown up onto A3 card to create revision cards for intervention/ starters/ plenaries Maths skills and RPAs are incorporated More of these on the way for all AQA units, RPAs and maths skills. Feedback welcome

Energy stores / Types of energy

Topic: Energy / Energy stores / Types of energy Level: GCSE, key stage 4 I am following the AQA science (physics) syllabus but this resource is suitable for anyone teaching KS4 physics on Energy Stores ( or previously known as Different Types of Energy). Resources: 1. Powerpoint slides: 18 slides with clickable items for navigation. Answers to questions in slides reveal upon clicking. I have written "Presenter's notes" under some slides, mostly about extension ideas and some simple notes on the theory. 2. Notes for pupils: Use this 3 page document as worksheets or handouts. Pupils can take notes during lesson or complete tasks in this editable document. Also, it includes 1 exam style question. 3. Printout: A list of descriptions (clues) for pupils to read and guess which energy store the description is referring to. (This can be cut out and put in a hat for pupils to pick out.) This makes Task 1 in the powerpoint interactive. Hope this resource is helpful for you. Please do let me know if there's any suggestions for improvement. I aim to upload all my lessons on "Energy and Energy Resources" so that you can have a complete set of lessons for this unit. Enjoy!

GCSE Physics Worksheets - Forces, Motion and EnergyQuick View

GCSE Physics Worksheets - Forces, Motion and Energy

This pack of materials consists of nine worksheets and fully worked out answers. Resultant Forces Forces and Motion: Distance Time Graphs Forces and Motion: Velocity Time Graphs Forces and Braking Forces and Terminal Velocity Forces and Elasticity Forces and Energy: Potential Energy Forces and Energy: Kinetic Energy Momentum They have been designed to match the needs of the AQA Physics GCSE syllabus for the first half of module P2, but could be used with any GCSE Physics syllabus or appropriate unit from GCSE Double Science. They are suitable for use in class or as homework. They cover the areas of forces, motion and energy. Each worksheet contains the relevant equation/s to complete the work, so that students should find the tasks accessible. The focus for calculation questions is on the process of getting to the answer rather than the answer itself. (Many answer guides or mark schemes simply quote the correct answer without the details to help a struggling student see how it was achieved). My aim is to produce five more units of similar materials to complete the Physics GCSE. I would appreciate any feedback, errors or omissions to help me with this work going forward.

GCSE AQA Physics - P6.4 Internal EnergyQuick View

GCSE AQA Physics - P6.4 Internal Energy

New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on 'Internal Energy' written in line with new AQA Physics specification. Lesson Outline: Starter discussed whether a glass of water has energy of not to see what conclusions pupils can draw on this from previous lessons. This leads to a view of a substance on a microscopic scale to highlight that the particles are moving, therefore pupils should be able to deduce must have energy in order to move. Internal energy is then shown to be this energy in substance due to kinetic energy and potential energy. After revisiting the starter how to increase internal energy is discussed The different states of matter are review again but now in relation to internal energy with helpful graphics to support these points. How much energy in a substance is related to specific heat capacity which is typically covered earlier in the course so this provides a great opportunity to review of this topic. Lesson concludes with review questions. Lesson Objectives: - Explain what is meant by internal energy. - Identify and explain how you can increase internal energy. - Relate internal energy to properties of solids, liquids and gases. - Explain how particles in a gas exert a pressure.
