Concorde Career College Energy Conversion & Gravitational Potential Energy Discussion

Question Description

I’m working on a chemistry writing question and need a sample draft to help me understand better.

  • What are some of the various forms of energy?
  • Explain how energy is converted from one form to another.
  • Demonstrate these conversions using an example from daily activities.  For example, when you are riding a roller coaster, there is a continuous conversion from gravitational potential energy  when you are at the peak of a roller coaster to kinetic energy as you move toward the bottom of the coaster.  As you travel down the coaster the kinetic energy increases and the potential energy decreases.
