What are the 5 forms of energy? mechanical, electrical, light, thermal, sound
What type of energy is caused by moving particles that you feel as heat? thermal energy
What type of energy is caused by the movement of electrically charged particles? electrical energy
The transfer of heat that occurs when one thing touches another is called ______________? conduction
The transfer of thermal energy in which warm air rises and moves cooler air downward is called _______________? convection
Energy that is sent out in waves and can travel through matter and space is called ________________? radiation
Give an example of a fossil fuel that can create heat. oil, coal, gas (fossil fuel to heat)
