Forms of Energy

Its a wild ride!!!

the ability to do work energy
friction changes kinetic energy into thermal; force that opposes motion
energy source that can be replaced at the same rate that they are used renewable resources
energy source that can not be replaced or is used at a rate faster than it can be replaced nonrenewable resource
total potential and kinetic energy of an object mechanical energy
energy resource that requires the splitting of the atom nuclear energy
when plants change solar energy into chemical energy photosynthesis
energy of position or stored energy potential
energy resource where water is pumped down into the Earth near hot rock geothermal
Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It can only change forms or be transferred to other objects law of conservation of energy
energy source caused by the sun's uneven heating of the Earth's surface wind
energy resource that releases energy by burning plants, wood, and organic waste biomass energy
energy is transferred only amongst a group of objects closed system
energy of motion kinetic
potential energy stored in an object when is lifted against gravity gravitational
energy reources that form from the buried remains of plants and animals from millions of years ago fossil fuel
energy resource when sunlight is changed into electrical energy solar
potential energy stored in an object when it is bent, twisted, stretched or deformed in any way elastic
