Energy Transformation The change of energy from one form to another.
Conductor A substance that readily transfers heat or electrical energy.
Insulator A material that does not conduct heat or electrical current.
Kinetic Energy Energy of motion.
Chemical Energy Energy stored in chemical bonds and released through chemical reactions.
Electrical Energy A form of energy made available by the flow of electric charge through a conductor.
Light Energy A form of energy that exhibits wave-like behavior as it travels through space; part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Mechanical Energy The sum of the potential and kinetic energy of an object.
Thermal Energy The total kinetic (motion) energy of the tiny particles that make up matter. The faster the particles move, the warmer the matter becomes.
Sound Energy A form of energy that is made by vibrations and requires a medium (such as air, water, or solids) in order to travel. Sound waves travel slower than light waves.
System A group of interacting or interdependent elements forming a complex whole; for example, all the factors or variables in an environment or all the variables that might affect a science experiment.
