Science In Focus: Energy
Interview with Dr. Sallie Baliunas about forms of energy including springs and magnets.,Dr. Sallie Baliunas explains the energy transfers that occur when she pushes down on a spring and then releases it. She explains that she adds potential energy to the spring when she pushes it down, energy that is bound up in the coils. When she releases the spring, the potential energy becomes energy of motion. Some potential energy is used to move air molecules, producing sound, and some is lost to heat
