Types of Energy
By: Jaylin Hopkins, and Ocean Franklin
Chemical-Chemical Energy is energy stored in the bonds of chemical compounds (atoms and molecules). It is released in a chemical reaction, often producing heat as a by product (exothermic reaction). Batteries, biomass, petroleum, natural gas, and coal are examples of stored chemical energy.
Ex.Gas, and Acid
Radiant-Radiant energy is energy that travels by waves or particles, particularly electromagnetic radiation such as heat or x-rays. An example of radiant energy is the source of energy used in radiation therapy.
Ex.Solar flare or sun
Electric-Electrical energy is defined as an electric charge that lets work be accomplished. An example of electrical energy is power from a plug outlet.
Ex. Lightning bolt
Mechanical-In the physical sciences, mechanical energy is the sum of potential energy and kinetic energy. It is the energy associated with the motion and position of an object.
Ex. A vehicle motor
