Energy: What are the different types of energy we learned about in Chapter 10? Kinetic energy – Energy in action (moving or lifting something) Potential Energy-stored or inactive energy What makes them all “energy”? Can you think of any other kinds? Energy has a number of different forms, all of which measure the ability of an object or system to do work on another object or system. ( Energy Concepts Primer, 2011) Thermal energy, Chemical Energy, solar energy What is an energy wavelength? How is it similar or different from a wave in the ocean? The distance between two peaks of a wave is the wavelength. The amount of energy is related to the wavelength of the light: the shorter the wavelength, the greater the energy of each photon of the light. The velocity of idealized traveling waves on the ocean is wavelength dependent and for shallow enough depths, it also depends upon the depth of the water. The bigger the wave the more energy it produces. (Nave, 2011)

    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.
