Analyze and describe the relationship between solar energy and time as a quadratic relation.
Using a graph that shows the amount of solar energy over the course of a year, students determine which of four equations (1 linear; 2 quadratics; and 1 cubic) best models the curve of best fit on the graph.
Solar energy is an affordable alternative energy that can be used to help heat and power your home, school, or business. However, there are some important considerations around the use of both solar photovoltaic and solar thermal systems in British Columbia that you should be aware of. Check out bchydro.com for more information regarding the practicality of solar energy in our province.
Throughout the activity, consider how well students:
Which part of the dam has the greatest impact on its power output?
How often do Newton’s 1st and 2nd laws apply in the same situation?
Students use their understanding of energy production on Earth to decide which form of energy would be the most viable f...
