Standard VI - Heat, Light, Sound
Standard: Students will understand properties and behavior of heat, light, and sound.
Objective 1: Investigate
the movement of heat between objects by conduction, convection, and radiation.
Objective 2: Describe how light can be produced, reflected, refracted, and separated into visible light of various colors.
Objective 3: Describe the production of sound in terms of vibration of objects that create vibrations in other materials.
Heat, light, and sound are all forms of energy. Heat can be transferred by radiation, conduction and convection. Visible light can be produced, reflected, refracted, and separated into light of various colors. Sound is created by vibration and cannot travel through a vacuum. Pitch is determined by the vibration rate of the sound source.
