Potential energy

Uncover the secrets of potential energy and its role in the laws of physics. Learn how to harness and utilize this powerful force to create amazing outcomes.
TJ. Potential energy is the stored or pent-up energy of an object. Potential energy is often associated with restoring forces such as a spring or the force of gravity. The action of stretching the spring or lifting the mass is performed by an external force that works against the force field of the potential. This work is stored in the force field, which is said to be stored as potential energy. If the external force is removed the force field acts on the body to perform the work as it moves the Outdoor, Physical Science, Energy Work, Work Energy And Power, Kinetic And Potential Energy, Energy, How To Increase Energy, Kinetic Energy, Physical Science Lessons

Students investigate potential energy held within springs (elastic potential energy) as part of the Research and Revise step. Class begins with a video of spring shoes or bungee jumping. Then students move on into notes and problems as a group. A few questions are given as homework. The Test Your Mettle section concludes. The lesson includes a dry lab that involves pogo sticks to solidify the concepts of spring potential energy, kinetic energy and gravitational energy, as well as conservation...
