The nature of energy

The Nature of Energy

Motion, Force & Energy Chapter 5.1

Pages 140-145


What is energy

What is Energy?

  • Energy is the ability to do Work or cause a change

    • Measured in Joules, like Work


Kinetic energy

Kinetic Energy

  • Kinetic Energy is the energy of motion

  • All moving objects have Kinetic Energy (KE )

  • What determines an object’s KE?

    • Mass & Velocity determine the KE of an object.


Potential energy

Potential Energy

  • Potential Energy (PE ) is stored energy

    • It has the potential or “possibility” to do work

  • Gravitational PE is energy that depends on height

  • Elastic PE is for objects that can be stretched.


Mechanical energy

Mechanical Energy

  • Energy associated with motion (KE & PE)


Thermal energy

Thermal Energy

  • Energy of particles in an object


Chemical energy

Chemical Energy

  • Energy stored in chemical bonds


Electrical energy

Electrical Energy

  • Moving electric charges


Electromagnetic energy

Electromagnetic Energy

  • Waves of energy, such as light


Nuclear energy

Nuclear Energy

  • The fusion or fission of atoms


Which of the following is an example of kinetic energy

Which of the following is an example of Kinetic Energy?
