the big idea of energy

i have to do an assesment about sound. i have to include the big idea of energy. i have no clue what it is! HHEELLPP MMEE!!


What do you mean when you say "the big idea of energy"?

I know that sound is created by vibrations, but I'm not sure that's exactly what you are looking for.

i have no clue of what the big idea of energy is please plese help me becouse i have to do an asessment on the iron and silpher reaction and it askes me to explain what the big idea of energy is.

  1. LOL, your teacher must be using the same stupid text book as mine. It's always going on about the big idea of energy and I have no clue what it is either, and I'm just doing the Iron and Sulpher homework too. Did you get the even more stupid homework on the EAr defenders. AGGHHHHHHHHHH!

  2. The total off energy and matter in the universe is constant, but that energy and matter are equivalent and can be interchanged-
    And how i translated that from geekspeak was that energy and matter are kinda like twins that change place, and that everything in the universe is constant and on going-if that didn't help much i totally understand-i didn't understand it for the first 3 years.

  4. Energy can't be made or destroyed, just changed from one type to another. When something burns, you aren't making energy, just changing it from chemical (stored in the wood) to heat and light (the flame).

    Hope this answers your question, but you are right. Those sheets really suck.

    2)Something like that

    3)Or something to do with joining with Oxygen to make magnesium oxide

  18. The big idea of energy is when a plant uses photosynthesis to get energy from the sun. The animal that eats this plant gets some of that energy transferred. Then the animal that eats that animal gets some of that energy...
    Understand?
    Have you done food webs yet? The arrows on a food chain or a food web stand for the direction in which energy is being transferred.

    Woah! I have impressed myself with how much i know! :P

    Hope I can help =]

  28. The big idea of energy transfer is the idea of a source of energy being changed into another form of energy such as light energy to heat energy. This effect happens in global warming were chemical energy is transfered into heat energy with a greenhouse effect. This effect also happens in a food chain as the producers of the plant get energy from the sun through photosynthesis. The energy is then transferred to the consumer (animal/human) which has eaten the plant. During this flow of energy, only a certain percentage of energy is transferred to the consumer.

    Hope this helps with your assignemnt.

  51. OK - The big Idea of energy.

    Energy can never be destroyed - it simply changes it's state.

    So for instance energy can be stored in the form of magnesium and then burnt. The energy then changes it's state into heat, light and sound.

    Similarly an animal could consume food and turn this into energy in the form of stored(potential) energy, movement(kinetic) or sound, heat light etc.

  72. the big idea of energy is when a form of energy (heat,light, chemical, ect.)
    ive got the iron and sulphur sheet and this is what i put:
    ‘The big idea of energy’ is that energy can’t be created or destroyed and it just changes from one form to another. This happens in this reaction because when we heat the mixture we aren’t creating energy we are simply changing heat energy to chemical energy to hold the iron and sulphur particles together. Thus making the compound known as FeS (iron sulphide/ iron pyrites (fool’s gold)).

  104. ok...it is where the particles collide to form a compound.
    Energy is stored in the form of magnesium then burnt. The energy changes state to light,heat and sound.
    Energy can't be created or changed,it changes form.
    When something burns, you aren't making energy, just changeing it from a chemical (stored in wood) to heat and light (the flame.)

  106. Sooooooo
    Energy can't be destroyed it just changes state
    So the heat energy used on the iron and sulphur is then changed into chemical bonds, heat energy, light energy etc.
    The energy is still there but being used as chemical bonds to keeep the compound as a compound.
    The Big Idea of Energy Transfer is that as a say energy is added to something the opposite must be done to it's surroungings.

    Hope this helps.

  118. u must be in the 8th grade like me and i assume ur learning physics [physical science] well energy is abundant in the universe. particle always have energy and never stop moving. liquid the particles are tender and so the energy they have is very low but they have the ability to slide off each other. gas are very far from each other and move heinously to keep constant. solid, solids have the most energy. they use force and energy for movement. the solid particles use their energy in 2 ways, keeping together their an example of cohesion (two particles or substances that stick together.)

    Now we're going on to laws since ur talking about energy i will only do charles' law. now charles' law explains the relationship between temperature and volume. when the air is hot the particles speed up, know why? well on a hot summer day how would you react to the hot ground towards your feet, you would move around fast and crazy right? well the same thing happens with molecules. the molecules' source of energy is heat, with heat the molecules move very fast and if inside an object they can inflate the object. okay moving onto cold air in the winter don't you hate to run? well yes and how do you get to run? by creating enough heat. the cold air slows the particles' speeds which decrease the gas' mass, need any more?

  127. The big idea of energy is about the chemical reaction that takes place.
    According to the law of conservation of mass, “During an ordinary chemical change, there is no detectable increase or decrease in the quantity of matter.” Also, The Law of Conservation of Energy states that “energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can change its form.” Therefore, there are the same number of particles in the beginning and at the end of the reaction because no particles can be lost in the chemical reaction, they just turn into a different form.

    Hope this helps

  129. Copy and paste for the win:

    The "big idea" of energy, is a phrase designed to point out that everything in the universe is energy in one form to another and that the sum of energy is maintained.
    Energy can only be transferred or transformed from one form or another such as matter (substance) or light (radiation).
    Matter is composed entirely of energy bound up in a specific form. Radiation is energy liberated to travel freely through space until it encounters and reacts or interacts with other energy and under the right conditions alters the properties of, adds to or becomes new matter.

  133. The Big Idea Of Energy is to do with energy being transfered from one form to another. For example...in a lightbulb the electrical energy is turned into light and heat. The electrical energy comes from your house or wherever and then turns into light to light up your lightbulb and heat because the lightbulb becomes hot.

  139. Hi all,

    Just seen your comments, the big idea of energy is simply an idea that states that energy can not be created or destroyed, it just changes form.

    For the ear defenders homework the energy changes from kinetic (vibrations) to sound.

    The sulphur homework, the big idea is that you need heat to get the reaction going, the heat is transferred to light energy when the compound glows.

    Hope it helps.

    The big idea of energy is that energy is never 'made' it simply changes from one form to another.
    During the sulphur and Iron experiment the energy transformed from heat energy from the bunsen burner to light energy (the glowing mixture). This proves my theory on the big idea of energy

    well this is wat i decided 2 put and i give u my full permission to use it for ur APP task or watevs:

    "the iron filings and sulphur start off as a mixture and reaches a different stage when melted together by the heat energy from the bunsen burner. then the light energy from the flame create it into a glowing mixture. this is my theory on the big idea of energy!"

    feel free to change any wordING U DIDN'T LIKE, BUT HOPE IT GIVES U HELP :P and thx to melanie b. demetri!!! PLZ LEAVE A COMMENT I WANNA C IF I HELPED ANY1!!!! HV A GOOD DAY!! :]

  162. Hey the big idea of energy simply is that energy when used doesn't get destroyed and just dissapear but it changes state into other stuff e.g: animals eat it gets turned into energy to help their body work, when things are burned it produces heat sound and light energy if you get the jist its easy as pie! :)

  185. Ear defenders work by absorbing the sound that was headed to your ear. They absorb the sound waves by increasing air resistance this reduces the loudness of the waves. The energy is converted into heat and the person wearing them can hear sounds at quieter amplitude than the actual sound.
