Order and Disorder: What is Energy? (Jim Al-Khalili) Documentary: The breakthrough in renewable energy (vpro Backlight) Explainer: How heat moves. Throughout the universe, it’s natural for energy to flow from one place to another.

Explainer: How heat moves

And unless people interfere, thermal energy — or heat — naturally flows in one direction only: from hot toward cold. Heat moves naturally by any of three means. The processes are known as conduction, convection and radiation. Explainer: What is the electric grid? Alternating current (in electricity) Often abbreviated AC, alternating current is a flow of electrons that reverses direction at regular intervals many times a second.

Explainer: What is the electric grid?

Most household appliances run off of AC power. But many portable devices, like music players and flashlights, run off of the direct current (DC) power provided by batteries.

Here's a great lecture from MIT about Work, Energy, and Universal Gravitation.Here is some basic information on kinetic theory ideas about solids, liquids and gases, and changes of state. Also, there's information about ideal and real gases, the ideal gas equation, and Boyle's Law and Charles' Law.Students are often confused about issues relating to chemical bond energy, thinking that chemical bonds store energy that is used to make them.
