# What happens if you hammer a nail?

## What happens if you hammer a nail?

Answer. When you use a hammer to pound a nail into a board, you transfer kinetic energy to the hammer and the hammer transfers that kinetic energy to the nail. ... Any form of energy can be converted into any other type of energy, and often one form of energy is converted into more than one other form.

## How do you hammer nails?

The proper procedure:

1. Hold the nail near the top, just under the head, with the sharp tip positioned where you want to drive the nail. ...
2. Place the hammerhead centered on the head of the nail.
3. Draw back the hammer primarily with elbow motion, along with a slight backward bend of the wrist.

## What does if all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail mean?

The law of the instrument, law of the hammer, Maslow's hammer (or gavel), or golden hammer is a cognitive bias that involves an over-reliance on a familiar tool. As Abraham Maslow said in 1966, "I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail."

## When a hammer hits a nail what energy is changed?

When the hammer strikes the nail, the kinetic energy of the hammer converts into the internal energy. The nail, however, absorbs only a given part of this energy (70 %) which increases the nail temperature.

Kinetic energy

## What type of energy is hammering a nail?

mechanical energy

## What happens to the kinetic energy of a hammer when you use it to hit a nail?

Answer. Explanation: Whenever the hammer will hit the nail it's Kinetic energy will be decreased. ... Heat Energy:When hammer will hit on nail it will produce heat so some energy is converted into Heat.

## How do we use transformation of energy in our daily life?

What are some examples of energy transformation?

1. The Sun transforms nuclear energy into heat and light energy.
2. Our bodies convert chemical energy in our food into mechanical energy for us to move.
3. An electric fan transforms electrical energy into kinetic energy.

## What is the kinetic energy of a 45 kg object moving at 13 m s?

Answer: The Kinetic Energy of the object is 3802.

## What are 5 examples of energy transfer?

Energy transfers

• A swinging pirate ship ride at a theme park. Kinetic energy is transferred into gravitational potential energy.
• A boat being accelerated by the force of the engine. The boat pushes through the water as chemical energy is transferred into kinetic energy.
• Bringing water to the boil in an electric kettle.

## What are the 5 energy transformations?

Electric generator (Kinetic energy or Mechanical work → Electrical energy) Fuel cells (Chemical energy → Electrical energy) Battery (electricity) (Chemical energy → Electrical energy) Fire (Chemical energy → Heat and Light)

## How energy is transferred?

Heat can be transferred in three ways: by conduction, by convection, and by radiation.

1. Conduction is the transfer of energy from one molecule to another by direct contact. ...
2. Convection is the movement of heat by a fluid such as water or air. ...
3. Radiation is the transfer of heat by electromagnetic waves.

## What are the 4 types of energy transfer?

There are 4 ways energy can be transferred;

• Mechanically - By the action of a force.
• Electrically - By an electrical current.
• By radiation - By Light waves or Sound waves.
• By heating - By conduction, convection or radiation.

## What are the three ways to transfer energy?

There are three methods of energy transfer that we need to learn: conduction, convection, and radiation.

• Conduction: Heat is thermal energy, and in solids it can be transferred by conduction. ...
• Convection: Fluids, that is both gases and liquids, can transfer heat energy by convection. ...

## What is a real life example of convection?

boiling water - When water boils, the heat passes from the burner into the pot, heating the water at the bottom. This hot water rises and cooler water moves down to replace it, causing a circular motion. radiator - A radiator puts warm air out at the top and draws in cooler air at the bottom.

## Which is an example of heating through convection?

A space heater is a classic convection example. As the space heater heats the air surrounding it near the floor, the air will increase in temperature, expand, and rise to the top of the room. This forces down the cooler air so that it becomes heated, thus creating a convection current.

## Is burning of wood a convection?

Wood burning fires transfer heat in the same way as many modern heating appliances. ... These include convection, which is a transfer of heat through air currents.

## Is ice melting an example of convection?

Yes, the melting of ice is an ideal example of convection. Ice melts since heat moves to the ice from the air.

## What are 2 examples of conduction?

What are 4 examples of conduction?

• Conduction: Touching a stove and being burned. Ice cooling down your hand.
• Convection: Hot air rising, cooling, and falling (convection currents)
• Radiation: Heat from the sun warming your face.

## What are two examples of conduction that you experience everyday?

Everyday Examples of Heat or Thermal Conduction

• You can warm your back muscles with a heating pad. ...
• The heat from a hot liquid makes the cup itself hot. ...
• If you are cold and someone holds you to warm you, the heat is being conducted from their body to yours.

## What are 4 examples of radiation?

• ultraviolet light from the sun.
• heat from a stove burner.
• visible light from a candle.
• x-rays from an x-ray machine.
• alpha particles emitted from the radioactive decay of uranium.
• sound waves from your stereo.
• microwaves from a microwave oven.
• electromagnetic radiation from your cell phone.

## Which is a example of radiation from point?

particle radiation, such as alpha radiation (α), beta radiation (β),proton radiation and neutron radiation (particles of non-zero rest energy) acoustic radiation, such as ultrasound, sound, and seismic waves (dependent on a physical transmission medium)

Gamma rays

## What are 4 types of radiation from the sun?

Solar radiation includes visible light, ultraviolet light, infrared, radio waves, X-rays, and gamma rays. Radiation is one way to transfer heat.
