Energy and Matter: Energy can be transferred in various ways and between objects.
PS3:B Conservation of Energy and Energy Transfer: Energy is present whenever there are moving objects, sound, light or heat. When objects collide, energy can be transferred from one object to another, thereby changing their motion. In such collisions, some energy is typically also transferred to the surrounding air; as a result, the air gets heated and sound is produced. Light also transfers energy from place to place. Energy can also be transferred from place to place by electric currents, which can then be used locally to produce motion, sound, heat or light. The currents may have been produced to begin with by transforming the energy of motion into electrical energy.
What is meant by conservation of energy? How is energy transferred between objects or systems?
Make observations to produce data to serve as the basis for evidence for an explanation of a phenomenon or test a design solution. (Planning and Carrying Out Investigations) (Personal: Personal responsibility).
Ask questions that can be investigated and predict reasonable outcomes based on patterns such as cause-and-effect relationships. (Asking Questions and Defining Problems) (Entrepreneurial: Inquiry/Analysis).
