2 Energy: Kinetic energy: Potential energy: Energy is the capacity to cause changeEnergy exists in various forms, some of which can perform workKinetic energy is energy associated with motionHeat (thermal energy) is kinetic energy associated with random movement of atoms or moleculesPotential energy is energy that matter possesses because of its location or structureChemical energy is potential energy available for release in a chemical reactionEnergy can be converted from one form to another
