Everything in the universe consists of “energy”vibration.” The fact that we can see, touch, taste, smell, hear, or feel physical objects is proof that they are made of energy. When people talk about objects as made of energy, they are simply saying that energy causes them to move. There is no such thing as “physical objects” that don’t move – this is just nonsense.
Many people believe that energy (and only energy) exist outside of the universe. Of course, we all know that energy cannot be “outside” something because energy is everywhere. All objects are composed of energy, and all the stars in the sky are made of energy. Energy moves.
If we were able to get inside of an object, we would be able to see the energy that makes the object move. But we can’t see energy inside objects, so what could we use instead? We could use “vibration.” This is not the same as sound and vibration. Vibration is where the motion is caused by some kind of energy.
Now, how could we use Bill Nye’s Energy Worksheet to find out about vibrational energy? Simple: Place your pointer finger in the middle of the Energy Worksheet. You should be able to see a disc. Then, place your pointer finger in the middle of the disc and trace a circle.
The energy circles on the Energy Worksheet will trace energy that exist in nature. But there is something else that can be traced. Try this: Remove the pointer finger and touch a horizontal line across the energy circle. Now trace a vertical line. Note how the energy circle gets thinner as the line gets closer to the center.
An additional test can be performed to confirm that the energy circles are indeed found in nature. Simply stand at the point where the energy circle begins and end. Do not allow any time to pass, as you will notice a sudden change in the amount of energy in the circle as you do this. If the amount of energy decreases as you get closer to the point where the energy begins and ends, you’ve found an example of vibrational energy.
To conclude, the Energy Worksheet is a neat way to trace energy circles through nature. Use this template in your next science fair!
