Force exerted on an object that causes it to move
The rate of doing work
SI units for power. equal to Joules(J)/Time(s)
Unit of power to compare work done by a steam engine to a horse. Equal to 746 watts
The ability to do work
Unit of measurement for energy
is energy due to motion of an object
energy that is stored due to an object's position or shape.
Gravitational Potential Energy
Energy stored as a result of its position above ground.
Elastic Potential Energy
Energy stored in a stretched or compressed elastic material.
energy associated with the motion and position of everyday objects
The total potential and kinetic energy of all of the microscopic particles in an object.
energy stored in the chemical bonds of an object
the energy associated with electrical charges
energy that travels through space in the form of waves
Energy stored in the atomic nuclei
Law of Conservation of Energy
Energy can never be created or destroyed; it can only be converted from one form to another.
