Conservation of Energy

TermDefinition
Kinetic Energy The energy possessed by a body because of its motion, equal to one half the mass of the body times the square of its speed.
Potential Energy The energy of a particle or system of particles derived from position, or condition, rather than motion.
Gravitational Potential Energy The energy stored in an object as a result of its vertical position or height.
Elastic Potential Energy The energy stored in materials that stretch or compress.
Electrical Energy The energy associated with electrons travel through a conductor such as a wire.
Chemical Potential Energy The energy stored in the chemical bonds of a group of atoms or molecules.
Law of Conservation of Energy Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only change forms.
Mechanical Energy It is energy in an object due to its motion or position, or both.
Thermal Energy The internal energy of an object due to the kinetic energy of its atoms and/or molecules.
Electromagnetic Spectrum range of electromagnetic radiation; gamma rays, which have the shortest wavelengths and high frequencies. At the other end are radio waves, which have the longest wavelengths and low frequencies. Visible light is near the center of the spectrum.
Conduction Heat or electricity being transferred through a substance.
Convection Heat transfer in a gas or liquid by the circulation of currents from one region to another.
Radiation The emission of energy as electromagnetic waves or as moving subatomic particles.
