Energy conversion and conservation15.2
· I can describe conversions of energy from one form to another
· I can state and apply the law of conservation of energy
· I can analyze how energy is conserved in conversions between kinetic and potential energy and solve equations that equate initial energy to final energy
· I can describe the relationship between energy and mass and calculate how much energy is equivalent to a given mass
