Form and types of energy Josh ebelt

Kinetic energy- energy that a body possesses by virtue of being in motion.

She is using kinetic energy to move.

I use kinetic energy when I run, make toast and throw up.

You can change kinetic energy to a different form by stopping its motion.

Elastic potential energy- stored energy from an elastic type object like a spring.

I use elastic potential energy when I shoot rubber bands, The toaster springs my toast up and when playing with springs.

Elastic potential energy can be changed into kinetic energy

Gravitational potential energy- energy an object possesses because of its position in a gravitational field.

Examples of this: a rock has energy stored from the gravitational field, so do toasters and bread

When an object falls, its gravitational potential energy is changed to kinetic energy.

Chemical energy-energy stored in the bonds of chemical compounds

Leaf people use sunlight to make oxygen chemically

Chemical energy can be a fire, leaf person doing its thing and making bombs

Chemical energy can be converted into thermal energy and light energy

Nuclear energy-energy released during nuclear fission or fusion

Examples of Nuclear energy- atomic bombs, radiation and fission/fusion

Nuclear energy can be converted to electricity

Thermal energy is energy that comes from heat

He is keeping his hand warm with thermal energy

Examples of thermal energy- fire, boiling water, winter coat

Thermal energy can be converted to mechanical energy

Light energy is energy that we can see

Examples of light energy- fire, lit light bulbs, the sun

Light energy can be converted to heat,electric,nuclear, and sound energy

Electrical energy is an electric charge that lets work be accomplished

Examples of electronic energy is light bulbs and outlets and batteries and of course Mike "the electric fence" Pence

Electric energy can be converted to heat and light and mechanical energy

Sound energy is the vibration of matter

Examples of sound energy- vibrations through air, guitars and basically all vibrations

Sound energy can be converted to heat energy
