Obtain and communicate information to develop models showing how electrical energy can be transformed into other forms of energy (including motion, sound, heat, or light).
- Physical Science: Energy Transfer - Electricity and Magnetism
The student will demonstrate an understanding of how electricity transfers energy and how magnetism can result from electricity.
Energy can be transferred from place to place by electric currents. Electric currents flowing through a simple circuit can be used to produce motion, sound, heat, or light. Some materials allow electricity to flow through a circuit and some do not.
