P.2.3: Analyze evidence that illustrates the Law of Conservation of Energy and the Law of Conservation of Momentum. Apply these laws to analyze elastic and completely inelastic collisions.
P.2.4: Describe and quantify energy in its different mechanical forms (e.g., kinetic, gravitational potential, elastic potential) and recognize that these forms of energy can be transformed one into another and into non-mechanical forms of energy (e.g., thermal, chemical, nuclear and electromagnetic).
P.3.1: Describe temperature, thermal energy and thermal energy transfer in terms of the kinetic molecular model. Expand the concept of conservation of mechanical energy to include thermal energy.
P.3.2: Describe the kinetic molecular model, use it to derive the ideal gas law and show how it explains the relationship between the temperature of an object and the average kinetic energy of its molecules.
P.3.3: Use the kinetic theory to explain that the transfer of heat occurs during a change of state.

P.6.1: Understand the geometric nature of light in reflection and refraction and in image formation by lenses and mirrors. Use that geometric nature to graphically predict the formation of images by lens and mirrors.
P.6.2: Describe the electromagnetic spectrum (i.e., radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays) in terms of frequency, wavelength and energy. Recognize that all these waves travel in a vacuum at the same speed.
P.6.3: Understand that electromagnetic waves are produced by the acceleration of charged particles. Describe how electromagnetic waves interact with matter both as packets (i.e., photons) and as waves. Show qualitatively how wave theory helps explain polarization and diffraction.
P.7.1: Explain that electrons, protons and neutrons are parts of the atom and that the nuclei of atoms are composed of protons and neutrons, which experience forces of attraction and repulsion consistent with their charges and masses. Distinguish elements from isotopes.
