The Amazing Ways of Energy
Including Transferring and Transforming Energy
What is energy?
Energy is the ability to do work
Energy can come in different forms and type like Mechanical,Radiant, Chemical, and etc.
Energy comes in different forms and types. A way to remember the different forms of energy is to remember is Mrs. G. Chen.
Mrs. G. Chen
R- Radiant (electromagnetic)
H- heat (thermal)
Mrs. G Chen is a good way of remembering your different FORMS of energy. It is an easier way and it is used for Science.
Mechanical energy is the sum of Potential and Kinetic energy in an object. Mechanical Energy is about the object due to its motion or position.
Radiant energy is the energy that come from electromagnetic radiation.
Sound energy comes from sounds waves and different sounds that travels through objects.
It is (potential) energy that has gravity or a gravitational force.
It is (potential) energy that is stored in the bonds of chemical compounds.
Heat (Thermal) Energy
It is (Kinetic) energy from the movement of particles of a substance. Also if it has more thermal energy,the more the temperature rises.
(kinetic) energy that comes from the movement of electrons through stuff
It is energy that comes in the nucleus (core) of an atom. It is also (potential) energy that is stored in the nucleus of an atom.
Transforming energy is when one energy changes or transforms into a different energy.
Transferring energy is when one energy is transferred to another when a reaction take place.
Ex. A baseball being hit by a baseball bat.
