Introduction to Energy- Lesson 1

Question Answer
chemical energy a form of potential energy. The amount of chemical energy depends on the kinds of atoms and their arrangement.
electrical energy energy that results from the position or motion of charged particles
electromagnetic energy energy that is transmitted through space in the form of electromagnetic waves.
energy In science, the ability to cause change.
energy transformation takes place when energy changes from one form to another.
kinetic energy the energy of an object that is due to motion
Law of conservation of energy energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only change forms.
mechanical energy the sum of an object's kinetic energy and potential energy.
nuclear energy the nucleus of an atom is the source of nuclear energy
potential energy energy that an object has due to its position, condition, or chemical composition.
sound energy kinetic energy caused by the vibration of particles in a medium such as steel, water or air
thermal energy thermal energy of an object s the kinetic energy of it particles. The faster the particles move the more thermal energy the object has.
