Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that energy exists in many forms and can be observed in cycles, patterns, and systems. The student is expected to:
- (1) differentiate among forms of energy, including
mechanical, sound, electrical, light, and thermal;
- (A) differentiate between conductors and insulators of thermal and electrical energy;
- (B) demonstrate that electricity travels in a closed path, creating an electrical circuit; and
- (C) design a descriptive investigation to explore the effect of force on an object such as a push or a pull, gravity, friction, or magnetism.
