Description

Potential Energy: Objects Interacting at a Distance. Students will learn about potential and kinetic energy. This unit looks at three types of potential energy: Gravitational, Magnetic, and Electromagnetic. This unit addresses the MS PS3-1 standard Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system. Students will learn about potential energy, make a model to explain their understanding, and they will ask questions and plan an investigation to explore how potential energy varies as the distance within the system changes. 

This resource includes:

  • two slide shows
  • two labs
  • follow-up pages
  • an assessment
  • answer keys

This resource is aligned with the following standards:

NGSS MS PS3-2 Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system. 

Utah SEEd Standard 8.2.2
Ask questions about how the amount of potential energy varies as the distance within the system changes. Plan and conduct an investigation to answer a question about potential energy. Emphasize comparing relative amounts of energy. Examples could include a cart at varying positions on a hill or an object being dropped from different heights. Calculations of kinetic and potential energy will be learned at the high school level. (PS3.A, PS3.B)

NGSSMS-PS3-2
Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system. Emphasis is on relative amounts of potential energy, not on calculations of potential energy. Examples of objects within systems interacting at varying distances could include: the Earth and either a roller coaster cart at varying positions on a hill or objects at varying heights on shelves, changing the direction/orientation of a magnet, and a balloon with static electrical charge being brought closer to a classmate’s hair. Examples of models could include representations, diagrams, pictures, and written descriptions of systems. Assessment is limited to two objects and electric, magnetic, and gravitational interactions.
