The ability to do work
The energy an object has due to its motion.
Energy that is stored as a result of position or shape
Gravitational Potential Energy
Potential Energy that depends on an object's height above a referance point.
Elastic Potential Energy
The potential energy of an object that is streched or compressed
The energy associated with the motion and position of everyday objects
The total potential and kinetic energy of all the particals in an object.
The energy stored in chemical bonds
The energy associated with electric charges
a form of energy consisting of changing electric and magnetic fields.
The energy stored in atomic nuclei
The practice of finding ways to use less energy or to use energy more effciently.
