8 types of energy and PE, KE
Potential Energy Equation
Mass x Gravity x height
Kinetic Energy Equation
1/2 x mass x velocity squared
Due to the motion of molecules or ions.
Energy traveling in waves
Energy traveling in waves through a solid, liquid or gas.
stored as excited electrons
Energy in the form of charged particles flowing through a conductor.
in the form of attractive and repulsive forces
possessed by objects in motion or have the potential to move
Released as a nucleus is split or fused together with other nuclei
Law of conservation of energy
energy cannot be created or destroyed
The three ways Potential energy is stored by are:
1. position, 2. condition, 3. substance
Example of Thermal Energy
Sun heating water in the water cycle
Example of radiant energy
includes visible light, microwaves, radio waves
example of sound energy
anything that makes noise
Example of chemical energy
food digesting, or a battery
Example of magnetic energy
bar magnet attracting a nail
example of mechanical energy
thrown ball or stretched spring
