Heat Energy Energy that is created in the movement of particles (atoms) that produces heat. Increases as temperature increases
Mechanical Energy Energy of motion The total energy of motion and position of an object
Light Energy Energy created by vibrating particles that create waves that travel through space and time. [These waves are called electromagnetic waves.]
Sound Energy is caused by an object’s vibrations
Chemical Energy Energy stored in chemical bonds
Electrical Energy Energy that is carried by an electrical current (the movement of electrons, the negatively charged particles of atoms)
heat In physics, a form of energy associated with the movement of atoms and molecules in any material.
Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, but only changed from one form into another or transferred from one object to another.
solar energy The energy the Earth receives from the sun, primarily as visible light and other forms of electromagnetic radiation.
fossil fuel A hydrocarbon deposit, such as petroleum, coal, or natural gas, derived from the accumulated remains of ancient plants and animals and used as fuel.
