Today we are doing an investigation about the efficiency of a hotplate and finishing our work, energy and power review. Test will be on Wednesday.
Today we are finishing up our work on Thermal Energy transformations and then we will be doing investigations related to thermal energy transfer and efficiency as well as "heat gained, heat loss" type problems (energy equilibrium problems).
Power & Efficiency
Today is our follow up period on power and efficiency. We will also be doing the "Power Output of a Student" investigation and wrapping up problems.
Review package for the upcoming evaluation.
Today we are extending our understanding of energy conservation and energy transformation to thermal energy and heat.Thermal Energy & Heat EnergyDownload the reading activity (textbook pages) or use the textbook in the classroom. It has information about the notes you should take about heat energy and thermal energy transfer.
Need help solving problems - all of the ways to use the equations and solve these types of problems are given in the video tutorials linked on the page below.
HELP VIDEOS FOR SOLVING Q=MCDT PROBLEMS (ALL VERSIONS)
Today is a work period and tutorial session related to the law of conservation of energy. We will be completing the package that was handed out yesterday. Go through the example below in your package.
