Types of Energy OW

potential energy energy an object has due to its position: stored energy
kinetic energy energy in motion
gravitational energy energy due to an object’s height above the ground
elastic energy energy from the ability to be “stretched”
chemical energy energy stored in the bonds between atoms in molecules
electrical energy energy carried by moving electrons forced along a path
radiant electromagnetic energy that travels in waves
mechanical energy of motion (involves both potential and kinetic energy)
nuclear occurs when the nuclei of uranium atoms are changed
thermal is the energy a substance or system has related to its temperature (the energy of moving or vibrating molecules)
sound relates to the repetitive compression and rarefaction of molecules in a substance
work use of force to move an object some distance
force push or pull acting on an object in order to change the motion of the object
Law of Conservation of Energy states energy cannot be created or destroyed, but changes forms
energy transformation the process where energy changes from one form to another
