Types of Energy
Terms in this set (17)
The energy of motion.
The ability to do work or create change
Gravitational Potential Energy
Energy due to position. Objects with this energy have the potential to fall. The amount of energy depends on the height of the object.
Elastic Potential Energy
Stored energy in an object due to its shape being changed.
Energy stored in chemical bonds found in molecules of chemicals
Energy stored in the nucleus of an atom
Electromagnetic energy (radiant)
Energy associated with light and the electromagnetic spectrum. The particle of energy is called a photon.
The energy of electrical charges.
The transfer of energy.
The total kinetic and potential energy of particles in an object. The higher the temperature the higher the thermal energy.
Energy that results from an objects motion (KE), postion or shape (PE).
The SI unit for Energy and Work
The 5 energies involving particles
nuclear, chemical electrical electromagnetic, and thermal
Electromagnetic energy from the sun comes from this type of energy
