energy of motion
The ability to do work or to create change.
The movement of electrical charges called electrons.
A form of energy calculated by adding the potential and kinetic energy of a system.
the energy released when chemical bonds are broken.
The vibration and movement of atoms and molecules within substances. The higher the temperature the faster the movement.
The energy that holds the nucleus of an atom together. It is released when the nucleus of an atom is broken apart or joined together with another atom's nucleus.
