Units of Energy The SI unit of energy is the Joule (J) . An older, non-SI unit is still in widespread use: The calorie (cal) . 1 cal = 4.184 J

System and Surroundings The system includes the molecules we want to study (here, the hydrogen and oxygen molecules). The surroundings are everything else (here, the cylinder and piston).

Work Energy used to move an object over some distance. w = F d , where w is work, F is the force, and d is the distance over which the force is exerted.

Transferal of Energy a) The potential energy of this ball of clay is increased when it is moved from the ground to the top of the wall. b) As the ball falls, its potential energy is converted to kinetic energy.

Transferal of Energy a) The potential energy of this ball of clay is increased when it is moved from the ground to the top of the wall. b) As the ball falls, its potential energy is converted to kinetic energy. c) When it hits the ground, its kinetic energy falls to zero (since it is no longer moving); some of the energy does work on the ball and all is eventually dissipated as heat.
