Physical properties define each and every activity of our life and determine various aspects of our existence.
This course covers the fundamental concepts of energy, including the Law of Conservation of Energy. Other key concepts covered include gravitational potential and kinetic energy, how waves transfer energy, the nature of sound, and the electromagnetic spectrum. The course stresses that energy concepts are essential for understanding all of the domains of science, from the ways that organisms get energy from their environment, to the energy that drives weather systems and volcanoes. Students characterize physical waves by frequency, wavelength, amplitude, and speed. They apply these properties to the pitch and volume of sound waves and to the wavelength and magnitude of water waves. The course examines the electromagnetic spectrum with a labeled diagram, showing how regions of the spectrum differ with respect to wavelength, frequency, and energy.
