### Kinetic Energy Ppt

• 1. The One & Only: Rishi Murugesan Block 4
• 2. What is the Kinetic Theory of Matter?  It is a theory that states that all things are ”made up of very small particles that are in constant motion” from http://encyclopedia.farlex.com/Kinetic+theory+of+matter
• 3. What is the Kinetic Theory of Matter? Cont’d  The higher the temperature, the faster the particles move Moving Faster
• 4. What are the “Small Particles?”  Everything is made up of atoms  When the atoms move faster, the temperature of the substance increases
• 5. What are the “Small Particles?” cont’d  The small particles are atoms  Atoms are the basic building blocks of life LIFE
• 6. What is Thermal Energy?  Thermal Energy is “the kind of energy that is related to and/or caused by heat. “from http://discover.edventures.com/functions/termlib.php?action=&single=&word=thermal+energy HEAT!
• 7. What is Thermal Energy? Cont’d  “Thermal Energy is what makes the world go round”- Mr. McCarthy
• 8. How does Thermal Energy tie in with The Kinetic Theory of Matter?  “The total kinetic energy of all the particles is Thermal Energy” from http://www.school-for-champions.com/science/matter_kinetic_theory.htm Tie. Get it?
• 9. What is Kinetic Energy?  It is the energy of a motion. This means that whenever an object moves, it is using Kinetic Energy. This car has a lot of kinetic energy.
• 10. What does that mean?  It means that thermal energy is a measure of kinetic energy. This helps scientists figure out how much kinetic energy there is using thermal energy.
• 11. What does that mean to me?  Your body is always using kinetic energy. Thermal Energy is the reason you live and exist.
• 12. What does that mean to me? Cont’d  You use both of the topics everyday of your life. Both of the topics are relevant.
