energy tranformations

Sophia Bonham

Energy

"power that may be translated into motion, overcoming resistance or causing a physical change; the ability to do work. Energy assumesseveral forms; it may be thermal (in the form of heat), electrical, mechanical, chemical, radiant, or kinetic. In doing work, the energy ischanged from one form to one or more other form(s). In these changes some of the energy is “lost” in the sense that it cannot be recapturedand used again. Usually there is loss in the form of heat, which escapes or is dissipated unused; all energy changes give off a certain amount of heat."

energy transformation

Energy transformation or energy conversion is the process of changing one form of energy to one other. its important because we need to know and understand how energy is started and how we are able to do anything. And it is used in the real world for basically everything that is in or will be or was in motion.
