Different Forms of Energy
By: Ce'Nedra Fogg
Throwing a football
When you throw a football it has both potential and kinetic energy. The higher the football, the greater the potential energy. And the faster the football moves, the more kinetic energy it has.
Mechanical Energy= Potential Energy + Kinetic Energy
LAVA- The lava may be moving slowly, but the particles aren't. The particles have a large amount of kinetic energy, so the lava has a large amount of thermal energy.
The electrical charges from the sky collect and form lightning.
And electric grid harnesses electrical charges to power the technology in our lives.
FOOD: The particles in food contain chemical energy. Your body uses this energy after you eat them.
