PE questions to consider when preparing for the test:
1. The graphic organizer we prepared in class will be an excellent study guide for this portion of the
test.
2. Be able to define potential energy and kinetic energy.
3. Be able to define each potential energy type (elastic, gravitational, chemical, magnetic, and
electrical).
4. Be able to calculate potential energy given a variety of data for elastic potential energy.
EPE = &frac12; k x2
Know that k is the spring constant and how it can change the EPE when it increases or
decreases.
Know how to find x when given an equilibrium position and a stretched position.
5. Be able to calculate potential energy given a variety of data for gravitational potential energy.
GPE = m g h
Understand how changing the mass and height affect GPE.
6. Be able to look at a picture and identify high and low potential energy for all of the different
potential energy types.
7. Be able to compare similarities between the 5 types of potential energy.
Discuss how x for EPE, h for GPE, distance from the magnetic pole are similar.
8. Be able to discuss lab questions that explore similarities and differences between each potential
energy types.
9. Be able to compare exothermic reactions and endothermic reactions and how they change the
temperature of a reaction.
10. Students can describe how voltage is used to measure electrical PE.
Calculations: Write the Formulas for each. Here is a practice problem
1. Elastic PE:
- If a rubber band has a stretch of 0.1 meters past equilibrium and a spring constant
of 40, determine the elastic PE:
2. Gravitational PE
- If I am standing on a desk 1 m off the floor and weigh 100 kg, what is my PE? Just as
we did with kinetic energy, let’s set up the problem.
-
What if I was standing on the desk and jumping out the window (my height is 21 m)?
3. Kinetic Energy
- Let’s practice calculating the kinetic energy of Mr. Hoogeveen running around
the track. Let’s say he weighs 100 kg (be nice) and can run 3 m/s. What would his
kinetic energy be?

Possible Essay Questions:
Force comparison questions to consider when preparing for the test:
1. Identify at least 3 similarities and 3 differences between each of the contact forces.
2. Identify at least 3 similarities and 3 differences between each of the forces at a distance.
3. Be able to compare and contrast contact forces vs. forces at a distance.
