NJ Standards Addressed in this UnitEdit

A. Motion and Forces

  1. Recognize that electrically charged bodies can attract or repel each other with a force that depends upon the size and nature of the charges and the distance between them and know that electric forces play an important role in explaining the structure and properties of matter.
  2. Explain how electromagnetic, gravitational, and nuclear forces can be used to produce energy by causing chemical, physical, or nuclear changes and relate the amount of energy produced to the nature and relative strength of the force.
  3. Demonstrate that moving electric charges can produce magnetic forces and moving magnets can produce electric forces
  4. Recognize that magnetic and electrical forces are different aspects of a single electromagnetic force.

B. Energy Transformations

  1. Explain how the various forms of energy (heat, electricity, sound, light) move through materials and identify the factors that affect that movement.
  2. Explain that while energy can be transformed from one form to another, the total energy of a closed system is constant.
  3. Recognize that whenever mechanical energy is transformed, some heat is dissipated and is therefore unavailable for use.
