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

M- mechanical

R- Radiant (electromagnetic)

S- sound

G- gravitational

C- chemical

H- heat (thermal)

E- electrical

N- Nuclear

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

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

Radiant energy is the energy that come from electromagnetic radiation.

Sound Energy

Sound energy comes from sounds waves and different sounds that travels through objects.

Gravitational Energy

It is (potential) energy that has gravity or a gravitational force.

Chemical Energy

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.

Electrical Energy

(kinetic) energy that comes from the movement of electrons through stuff

Nuclear Energy

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

Transforming energy is when one energy changes or transforms into a different energy.

Transferring 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.
