In some places, hot water from underground can shoot up into the air through a hole in the ground. When this happens, the ground surrounding the water increases in temperature. What happens to the molecules in the ground when the temperature of the ground increases?

The energy and speed of the molecules in the ground increases.

What is potential energy?

Stored Energy

200

What is the law on conservation of energy?

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be transformed and transferred.

200

Identify the energy transformation in this simulation.

Mechanical Energy from the water is the only energy shown. There would be no transfer of energy from the flowing water to the solar panel.

Describe the two heating systems that were proposed for Riverdale High School.

Heating System 1

Water from a heated tank is pumped throughout the pipes of the school. The hot water warms the air in the school. This system had hotter water and a smaller tank.

Heating System 2

Warm groundwater is pumped throughout the pipes of the school. The warm water heats the air in the school. This system had a larger tank with lower temperature water.

Lin cooked a pot of soup, then put half the soup in the freezer for a while. Now the soup in the pot is hot, and the soup in the freezer is cold. What is the difference between the molecules of the soup in the pot and the molecules of the soup in the freezer?

A. The molecules of the soup in the pot are moving and the molecules of the soup in the freezer are not moving.

B. The molecules of the soup in the pot are moving faster than the molecules of the soup in the freezer.

C. There is no difference because all of the soup is made of the same type of molecules.

D. The molecules of the soup in the freezer are smaller than the molecules of the soup in the pot.

B. The molecules of the soup in the pot are moving faster than the molecules of the soup in the freezer.

Flori has one bucket of paint outside and one bucket of paint in her garage. Both paint buckets are the same size and have the same number of molecules. She brings the bucket in from outside and is going to stack it on top of the bucket in the garage. The diagram above shows the buckets now, before they touch.

What would be the energy of the buckets after they have been touching for a while?

A plumber is going to put two pipes in a wall, one in front and one in back. The pipes will be touching once they are installed. Both pipes are the same size and have the same number of molecules. The diagram above shows the pipes now, before they have touched.

How does the temperature of the front pipe compare with the temperature of the back pipe before the pipes touch? What will happen after the pipes have been touching for a while?

Before the pipes touch, the front pipe is hotter than the back pipe. Once the pipes are touching, the front pipe will transfer kinetic energy to the molecules in the cooler back pipe until both pipes reach the same temperature, which will be in between their starting temperatures.

Which heating system would work best and why?

The ground water system will work best. It will work better because there is a larger tank of water with more total energy. Because of this, the water will stay hotter longer even though it started at a lower temperature.

A chef takes four pans from different parts of her kitchen and puts them in two stacks. The diagram above shows the pans before they touch each other.

After the pans have been touching for a while, which of the two bottom pans will be cooler, and why?

The larger bottom pan will be cooler than the smaller bottom pan, because the energy that transferred to it will have spread out over more molecules.

or

It was able to absorb the thermal energy from the top pan and remain cool since it had more molecules.
