DE.3. Energy and Its Effects
3.1. The Forms and Sources of Energy
Enduring Understanding: Energy takes many forms. These forms can be grouped into types of energy that are associated with the motion of mass (kinetic energy), and types of energy associated with the position of mass and with energy fields (potential energy).
3.1.E. Electrical energy is a form of energy that can be transferred by moving charges through a complete circuit. (Level: Essential)
3.2. Forces and the Transfer of Energy
Enduring Understanding: Changes take place because of the transfer of energy. Energy is transferred to matter through the action of forces. Different forces are responsible for the transfer of the different forms of energy.
3.2.H. Electrical systems can be designed to perform a variety of tasks. Series or parallel circuits can be used to transfer electrical energy to devices. Electrical circuits require a complete loop through which the electrical charges can pass. (Level: Important)
