Is the ability to do work
Energy of motion
gravitational potential energy
stored energy, the energy an object has because of its position
The faster the particles move in an object, the more _____ energy the object has.
particles traveling through a wire to create an electric current is ____ energy.
Chemical (potential) Energy
The energy in food and fuel and cells
The energy from a vibrating object
a reflection/ scattering or from a luminous source
Energy that is stored in the nucleus of an atom
Law of Conservation of Energy
Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed ( into a form which may not be useful)
The amount of kinetic energy an object has depends on what two things?
the objects mass and speed
Takes place when energy changes from one form into another form.
Strain energy/elastic potential energy
energy from anything stretched or wound up
