Requirements

Define potential energy and factors that impact the amount of potential energy that exists in a system. Start by defining potential energy as energy that is stored in a system of interacting objects. Then explore the relationship between potential energy and fields in order to explain how objects interact without touching. Finally, evaluate factors that affect the amount of potential energy stored in a system. This investigation builds toward NGSS PEs: MS-PS3-2 and HS-PS3-5. (Unit 2, Investigation 2 of the Interactions project curriculum.)
