Energy Forms and Changes using PhET simulation

Affiliation: University of Thessaly (UTH)
Resolution: Individual | Duration: One to two hours



-Predict how energy will flow when objects are heated or cooled, or for objects in contact that have different temperatures. -Describe the different types of energy and give examples from everyday life. -Describe how energy can change from one form of energy into another. -Explain conservation of energy in real-life systems.

Learning Objectives

-Conservation of Energy -Energy Systems -Energy Transfer -Energy Conversion -Heat Conduction


Explore how heating and cooling iron, brick, water, and olive oil adds or removes energy. See how energy is transferred between objects.
