The flow of energy from a warmer object or substance to a cooler object or substance Heat Energy
Sometimes we use this term to describe the flow of thermal energy Heat Energy
Energy that can travel in waves through empty space Electromagnetic Energy
The Sun releases this energy in visible light, microwaves, x-rays, and other kinds of waves Electromagnetic Energy
Energy stored in a substance's chemical bonds, which determine the arrangement of its atoms and molecules Chemical Energy
Energy stored in food powers the cells of the body, and this type of energy in fuel is released when we burn the fuel Chemical Energy
Energy holding together particles in an atom's nucleus Nuclear Energy
Energy is released when a nucleus breaks apart and when two nuclei fuse. Nuclear fusion powers the Sun. What is this type of energy? Nuclear Energy
Energy from the flow of electrons Electrical Energy
The flow of electrons is called an electric current. What type of energy is this? Electrical Energy
Energy that moves an object Mechanical Energy
This type of energy is a combination of an object's potential and kinetic energy Mechanical Energy
