Midterm 1 (PHYS-150) Joules/hours = Power Megacalorie = Energy Watt * Minute = Energy Gigajoule / year = Power Megawatt *day = Energy Megawatt = Power Gigajoule = Energy The energy of a system is quantity that can be calculated from measurable properties of the system (The types of particles that make it up, their speeds, and their positions.) Power is the rate that energy is work is done or energy is transformed or transported. (Power = (Work)/(Time) or (Energy Transformed or Transported)/ (Time)) When calculate “which will last the longest?” (Amp*hours)/(amount of Volt) When calculate “which will produce the most power?” (amount of Volt) / (Amp*hours) (True and False) Air molecules oscillate in a direction parallel to the direction of the sound waves. Difference frequencies of sound travel with the same speed. Sound waves transport information, and Sound waves are energy - Waves are a disturbance that carry energy through space.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
