ID.8-9.PS. Physical Science
8-9.PS.2. Physical Science: Students explain the structure and properties of atoms, including isotopes. Students explain how chemical reactions, while requiring or releasing energy, can neither destroy nor create energy or matter. Students explain the differences between fission and fusion. Students explain the interactions of force and mass in describing motion using Newton's Laws. Students explain how energy can be transformed from one form to another while the total amount of energy remains constant. Students classify energy as potential and/or kinetic, and as energy contained in a field.
8-9.PS.2.5. Understand Chemical Reactions
8.PS.2.5.1. The student will be able to explain how chemical reactions may release or consume energy while the quantity of matter remains constant. (650.03a)
