Energy transfers occur around us all the time. Let’s learn about these transfers with Professor Pipette. Melting of an ice cream under sunlight is a classic example of transfer of light to heat energy. When you clap your hands, the force applied for clapping causes vibrations, which are transferred as sound waves. Another example of energy transfer is when you experience shock. This shock results from the transfer of electric energy from one place to another. All these transfers are governed by the law of conservation, which states that the total amount of energy in this universe is constant. Energy can be transferred, but cannot be destroyed.
The video satisfies the 4-PS3-2 requirement of fourth-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can: 4-PS3-2. Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
