Energy transfers are vital for our everyday lives. Join this video to explore examples of various energy transfers occurring around us. Transfer of energy means that energy is moved from one place to another. We see electrical energy transfer to electric current, light, and heat when we charge our mobiles, turn on a light bulb, and cook food in an oven. When in a concert, we sometimes feel vibrations, which result from sound waves. Plants capture solar radiation from the sun to produce food and this energy transfer is responsible for life on Earth. We have also developed processes to convert energy from sun, tides, and wind to electricity. Look around and you will observe many more examples of energy transfer.
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.
