Mission WE3: Kinetic and Potential Energy


Mission WE3 focuses on the contrasting meaning of kinetic energy and potential energy. You should be able to disinguish between the two modes of energy and be able to recognize the presence of either form and the manner in which it changes. The mission consists of 40 questions organized into 10 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...

 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to define kinetic energy, identify the standard unit of kinetic energy and identify the variables which effect (and do not effect) the kinetic energy of an object.
  • The student should be able to define potential energy, identify the standard unit of potential energy and identify the variables which effect (and do not effect) the potential energy of an object.
