## Background:

The Indiana
Academic Standards 2000 for Physics I contain two standards and
four supporting themes. The standards are:

- Standard 1: The Principles of Physics
- Standard 2: Historical Perspectives of Physics

The supporting themes are:

- The Nature of Science and Technology
- Scientific Thinking
- The Mathematical World
- Common Themes

##

The Standards that Relate to Chapter 8 - Energy are:

**Standard 1: The Principles of Physics**

- The Properties of Matter
- P.1.4 Employ correct units in describing common physical
quantities.

- The Relationships Between Motion and Force
- P.1.5 Use appropriate vector and scalar quantities to solve
kinematics and dynamics problems in one and two dimensions.
- P.1.6 Describe and measure motion in terms of position, time, and the derived quantities of velocity and acceleration.
- P.1.9
Use the conservation of energy law ... to predict, both conceptually and quantitatively, the results of the interactions between objects.

- The Nature of Energy
- P.1.11 Recognize energy in its different manifestations, such as kinetic (KE =
*mv*2), gravitational potential (PE = *mgh*), ... , or mechanical.
- P.1.12 Use the law of conservation of energy to predict the outcome(s) of an energy transformation.
- P.1.14 Explain the relation between energy (E) and power (P). Explain the definition of the unit of power, the watt.

- Momentum and Energy
- P.1.15 Distinguish between the concepts of momentum (using the formula
*p* = *mv*) and energy.
- P.1.16 Describe circumstances under which each conservation law may be used.
