Dangers of Ultraviolet radiation

The dangers of ultraviolet radiation from the sun. A day out cycling in the sun of Dali, Yunnan with minimal suncream. Note my “normal” skin colour where my watch strap was and the effect the sun has had on the rest of my arm. I mistake I will not make again.

Please don’t try this at home or on holiday.

For those of you with youtube access, the link is below. Alternatively I can give you the video via USB at school.

The Energy Song by Mr Edmonds

Here are the lyrics

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t can’t be destroyed

The Law of conservation of energy, energy can ony be transformed

Energy exists in many forms, never created or destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t can’t be destroyed

Two main types of energy, potential and kinetic energy

Potential, is energy that stored

Kinetic, is motion energy

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t can’t be destroyed

Some of the forms of potential energy, gravitational, chemical, nuclear and elastic

And some forms of kinetic energy, electrical, mechanical, heat and light

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Dodoooodododoooooooooo

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t  be can’t be destroyed.
