SC.B.1.4.1 Add Website - Add Activity

understands how knowledge of energy is fundamental to all the scientific disciplines (e.g., the energy required for biological processes in living organisms and the energy required for the building, erosion, and rebuilding of the Earth).

SC.B.1.4.2 Add Website - Add Activity

understands that there is conservation of mass and energy when matter is transformed.

SC.B.1.4.3 Add Website - Add Activity

knows that temperature is a measure of the average translational kinetic energy of motion of the molecules in an object.

About Temperature

Introduction to the physical concept of temperature, thermometers, temperature scales, heat and thermodynamics, kinetic theory, and thermal radiation.

SC.B.1.4.4 Add Website - Add Activity

knows that as electrical charges oscillate, they create time-varying electric and magnetic fields that propagate away from the source as an electromagnetic wave.

Computer Radio

This site shows you how to use a radio to detect the radio waves produced by a computer.

SC.B.1.4.5 Add Website - Add Activity

knows that each source of energy presents advantages and disadvantages to its use in society (e.g., political and economic implications may determine a society's selection of renewable or nonrenewable energy sources).

SC.B.1.4.6 Add Website - Add Activity

knows that the first law of thermodynamics relates the transfer of energy to the work done and the heat transferred.

SC.B.1.4.7 Add Website - Add Activity

knows that the total amount of usable energy always decreases, even though the total amount of energy is conserved in any transfer.
