Content description
Energy flow in Earth’s atmosphere can be explained by the processes of heat transfer
Elaborations
  1. recognising that the Law of Conservation of Energy explains that total energy is maintained in energy transfers and transformations
  2. recognising that in energy transfers and transformations, a number of steps can occur and the system is not 100% efficient so that usable energy is reduced
  3. comparing energy changes in physical events, for example, car crashes, the motion of pendulums, lifting and dropping
