Forms of energy
By: Brianna Cornejo
Gravitational Potential Energy
Gravitational energy is energy an object possesses because of its position in a gravitational field. Examples of gravitational potential energy are, parachutes, planes.
Kinetic energy is energy which a body possesses by virtue of being in motion. Examples of Kinetic energy are airplanes, a ball being thrown.
Sound energy is the energy produced by vibrating sound waves. Examples of sound energy are, a radio/music, car horns, and fireworks.
Heat energy is the result of the movement of tiny particles called atoms, molecules, or ions in solids, liquids and gasses. Examples of heat energy are, the sun and an oven or stove
Nuclear energy is the energy released during nuclear fission or fusion especially when used to generate electricity.
Electrical energy is known as an electric charge that helps things work. An example of electrical energy is power/outlet.
Light energy is a type of kinetic energy with the ability to form types of light people can see as well as invisible waves. Examples of light energy are, light bulbs or the sun.
Chemical energy is energy stored in the bonds of chemical compounds. Examples of chemical energy are batteries, and natural gas.
Elastic Potental Energy
Elastic Potental energy is potential energy stored as a result of an elastic object. An example of elastic potential energy is an elastic band.
