Forms of Energy

Unit 5


Energy

  • Is the ability to cause changes in matter.

  • Energy can transform, or change, from one form into another.

  • Energy is never used up.


Potential Energy

  • The energy an object has because of its position or condition.


Kinetic Energy

  • The energy an object has because of its motion.


Sound Energy

  • A form of energy that is carried as waves in a vibrating manner.

  • A type of kinetic energy, because particles of matter are moving.

  • The cause of all sound you hear.


Thermal Energy

  • Is the total kinetic energy that makes up a substance.

  • Thermometers measure thermal energy.


Light Energy

  • Is a form of energy that can travel through space.

  • It can also pass through some types of matter.

  • Travels as waves


Chemical Energy

  • Energy that is stored in matter and that can be released by a chemical reaction


Mechanical Energy

  • The total energy of motion and the position of an object.


Electrical Energy

  • Energy caused by the movement of electric charges.

  • When you use electricity you are using electrical energy.


Static Electricity

  • The buildup of electric charges on an object

  • Objects with the same charge repel each other

  • Objects with opposite charge attract each other


Electric Current

  • The flow of electric charges along a path.


Electric Motor

  • A device that changes electrical energy into mechanical energy.


Electromagnet

  • A device in which electric current is used to produce magnetism.


Generator

  • A device that makes an electric current by converting kinetic energy to electrical energy.
