Apply the conservation of energy concept to fields as diverse as mechanics, nuclear particles and studies of the origin of the universe.
Explain how energy flowing through an open system can be lost.
Apply the knowledge of conservation of energy to explain common systems (e.g., refrigeration, rocket propulsion, heat pump).
Explain common phenomena (e.g., a rock in a landslide, an astronaut during a space walk, a car hitting a patch of ice on the road) using an understanding of conservation of momentum.
Demonstrate how the law of conservation of momentum and conservation of energy provide alternate approaches to predict and describe the motion of objects.
