Forms of Energy

Chapter 3-1

What are the 4 types of Energy? Kinetic and Potential Energy, Kinetic Energy, Energy from Waves, and Potential energy
Types of Potential energy nuclear energy, chemical energy, and Gravitational Potential Energy
Types of Energy from Waves Sound energy, Seismic energy, and Radiant energy
Types of Kinetic Energy Electric Energy of objects and Kinetic energy of objects
Types of Kinetic and Potential Energy Thermal energy, Geothermal energy, and Mechanical energy
What is Potential energy Stored energy that depends on the interaction of objects, particles, or atoms.
What is Energy from Waves Waves that carry energy from one place to another.
What is Kinetic and Potential Energy Kinetic and potential energy combined.
What is Kinetic Energy The energy an object has because it is in motion.
What is nuclear energy Energy that is stored in and released from the nucleus of an atom.
What is chemical energy Energy that is stored in and release from the bonds of between atoms.
What is Gravitational Potential Energy Motion that is caused by gravity.
What is Sound energy Energy carried by sound waves.
What is Seismic energy Energy transfer by waves moving through the ground.
What is Radiant energy The energy carried by electromagnetic waves.
What is Electric Energy of objects When electricity creates motion.
What is Kinetic energy of objects The energy an object has because it is in motion.
What is Thermal energy The sum of the kinetic energy and potential energy of the particles that make up an object.
What is Geothermal energy Heat from earth.
What is Mechanical energy The sum of kinetic energy and potential in a system of objects.
Eaxmple of Kinetic Energy Moving your skateboard.
Eaxmple of nuclear energy The sun produces much of its light through nuclear reactions.
Eaxmple of chemical energy Dry wood stores chemical energy and is released as the wood burns.
Eaxmple of Gravitational Potential Energy Water stored in a dam.
Eaxmple of Sound energy A buzzing bee.
Eaxmple of Seismic energy Waves that earthquakes generate.
Eaxmple of Radiant energy Light from the sun is radiant energy.
Eaxmple of Electric Energy of objects Batteries in a flashlight.
Eaxmple of Kinetic energy of objects A wheel turning.
Eaxmple of Thermal energy Rubbing your hands.
Eaxmple of Geothermal energy Geysers and hot springs are geothermal energy.
Eaxmple of Mechanical energy Moving object such as vehicle.
Eaxmple of Kinetic and Potential Energy Electrons have kinetic and potential energy.
Eaxmple of Energy from Waves When we shout.
Eaxmple of Potential energy A Ferris wheel before it starts turning.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
