stored energy potential energy
potential energy caused by gravity gravitational potential energy
formula for gravitational potential energy mass x gravitational acceleration (9.8) x height
formula for kinetic energy mass x (velocity)2 / 2
formula for mechanical energy potential energy + kinetic energy
states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transferred to other forms law of conservation of energy
energy an object has due to the motion of its molecules thermal energy
energy stored in chemical bonds that hold compounds together chemical energy
potential energy stored in the nucleus of an atom nuclear energy
