These four videos represent my best explanations of energy transfers:
My best definition of energy in action is when a light bulb is turned on. when it's off it looks like energy is not in it. But take a closer look, turn the switch. Just like that it turns on. All we had to do was turn the switch and the energy inside traveled through the cord into the bulb.
My best definition for stored energy would be a battery. A battery itself has all the energy packed in it. but when you put the battery in a remote controlled car and start driving it. The energy from the battery is being used so that makes it energy in action. but when not in anything the battery is just stored energy, that is why it is a good example.
I'd say the hardest part of this activity was finding are examples for stored energy and energy in action. this was hard because my teacher didn't let us use the words: stored, energy, action. That would make it to easy. So what I did was I searched up things that were energy in action or stored energy. It was difficult to figure out if the words I thought went into both those categories. But I did it!
