Most of what goes on in the universe—from exploding stars and biological growth to the operation of machines and the motion of people—involves energy being transformed from one form into other forms. The Energy Enhanced E-Book* uses a variety of everyday events to explore how all forms of energy can be represented as either potential or kinetic energy, how there are many forms (electrical, chemical, sound, magnetic, gravitational, nuclear) of energy, how these forms can transfer from one form to other forms, and how the total amount of energy remains the same and is measurable when studying a closed system.
*Enhanced E-books are highly interactive, self-directed learning experiences designed to augment understanding of science content and pedagogy. These e-books include high-resolution images, animations, videos, interactive simulations, and embedded assessment.
