the capacity to do work
the amount of work an object can do because of the object's kinetic and potential energies
Forms of energy that travels through space in the form of waves.
e.g. visible light (sun) x-rays radio waves
law of conservation of energy
the law that states that energy cannot be created or destroyed but can be changed from one form to another
energy released in the form of heat caused by the motion of moving molecules and the breaking of chemical bonds
energy from nuclear fusion(the combination of the nuclei of small atoms to form a larger nucleus;releases energy or nuclear fission(the splitting of the nucleus of a large atom into two or more fragments;releases additional neutrons and energy)
a change from one form of energy to another
the energy an object has due to its motion
a machine that transforms heat into mechanical energy, or work
the energy that an object has because of the position, shape, or condition of the object
the unit used to express energy;equivalent to the amount of work done by a force of 1 N acting through a distance of 1 m in the direction of the force (symbol, J)
Energy stored in the chemical bonds of molecules; a form of potential energy.
