Cons. of Energy – John Jewett wrote a series of five back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back papers in the
journal Physics Teacher on how to teach conservation of energy. I have uploaded one of them. Read it and
write at most a two-page report about the paper and try to address the following: the choice one has in
choosing the system; the choice one has in choosing the time interval; the difference between the
transformation of energy and transfer of energy; what do steady-state, isolated, and non-isolated mean;
what are the types of energy transfers and the types of energy. Give an example of a scenario, e.g., you
wake up in the morning, eat an energy bar, climb a mountain, and write down the conservation of energy for
that process. To illustrate the importance of time, you can compare it to another process: you wake up in the
morning, eat an energy bar, climb a mountain, and walk back down the mountain, and explain how the
addition of time (walking back down the mountain) changes the equation for conservation of energy.
