States and forms of energy

the ability to cause change energy
energy of motion kinetic
stored energy potential
energy isn't created or destroyed law of conservation of energy
energy that moves in waves through the earth seismic waves
energy that comes from vibrating particles thermal
energy stored in the bonds between atoms chemical
energy stored in the nucleus of an atom nuclear
energy carried by moving electrons electric
energy that an object has due to the motion and position of its parts mechanical
Kinetic and potential energy are the two _________________of energy states
radiant energy is another name for electromagnetic waves
electromagnetic wave energy that humans can see visible light
sound waves that humans can hear audible
Sound waves that are too low for humans to hear. Used by giraffes, elephants, blue whales. infrasound
Sound waves that are too high for humans to hear. Used to map the ocean floor or to show the image of a baby. ultrasound
Electromagnetic waves that are given off by the sun and have a very high frequency UV waves
Electromagnetic waves that we use to cook food - they are very large microwaves
When particles are vibrating with a lot of kinetic energy, the temperature of a substance is hot
Thermal energy transfer that comes through space from the sun radiation
Thermal energy transfer that is found in boiling water, magma, and the atmosphere convection currents
Thermal energy transfer that occurs when you touch a hot pan conduction
potential energy depends on height and mass
kinetic energy depends on mass and speed
energy form that an object has when it is moving mechanical
the light from a lightbulb radiant
every time energy is changed into a different form, _________________________energy is given off thermal
closed loop of moving electrons closed circuit
stored energy that an object has due to it's height above the ground gravitational potential energy
stored energy that a rubber band has elastic potential energy
splitting an atom's nucleus to release energy nuclear fission
fusing two atomic nuclei together to release energy nuclear fusion
form of energy that created the sun nuclear
form of energy that needs a closed circuit to work electric
form of energy that a tuning fork gives off sound wave
