The energy in a sound wave
A material that transfers heat well.
The measure of how much useful work a machine puts out compared to the amount of work put into it.
The ability to do work
The number of times a sound source vibrates in one second.
The force that works against motion between surfaces that touch.
A material that does not transfer heat very well.
the object being lifted or moved by a simple machine.
The highness or lowness of a sound.
The transfer of heat through space
When light strikes a surface and bounces off.
The bending of light as it passes from one material into another.
A range of light waves with different wavelengths and energies.
The distance an object moves in a certain amount of time.
When a force is used to move an object a certain distance.
This allows heat to move quickly from one object to itself. It is the opposite of an insulator.
This represents ALL the light waves (not just those seen by your eye) with varying wavelengths extending from radio waves to gamma waves
