ability to do work or cause change
= Energy Transferred<br/> ______________<br/> Time
Kinetic Energy
the energy an object has due to it its motion which depends on its speed and its mass
potential energy
energy that results from the position or shape of an object
gravitational potential energy
Potential energy related to an object's height.<br/>GPE = Weight X Height
elastic potential energy
the energy associated with objects that can be compressed or stretched
mechanical energy
Form of energy associated with the motion, position, or shape of an object.<br/>ME = PE + KE
nuclear energy
a type of potential energy stored in the nucleus of an atom
thermal energy
total kinetic and potential energy of the particles in an object
electrical energy
energy of electric charges
electromagnetic energy
form of energy that travels through space in waves
chemical energy
potential energy stored in chemical bonds after the bonds have been broken
energy transformation
a change from one form of energy to another form of energy
law of conservation of energy
It is when one form of energy is transformed to another, no energy is lost in the process. Energy can not be lost or destroyed.
