The Physics Front website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
This item is an model worksheet for introductory physics students on Conservation of Energy. The student creates energy pie charts to gain practice in defining systems and analyzing energy storage. It is aligned with the Modeling Instruction pedagogical method, in which the concept of "Work" is de-emphasized in teaching about Energy, and the 1st Law of Thermodynamics is introduced as the primary means of analyzing energy interactions. This resource is part of a larger set of curriculum materials representing this method.
