Investigating the Design & Output of Wet Cell Batteries Kit
Converting Gravitational Potential Energy to Kinetic Energy Kit
Measuring Energy Efficiency Kit
Students investigate energy transformations and explore the efficiency of these transformations. In Part I, students estimate the efficiency of a flashlight bulb to produce light by using calorimetry to measure how much “waste” heat energy is produced. In Part II, students calculate and compare price, energy consumption, and cost per hour for incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs.
