Rotational energy Energy due to an object rotating around its center of gravity.
Electromagnetic Energy ( Also known as Light energy) Energy that travels through space as WAVES o Includes energy from gamma rays, xrays, ultraviolet rays, visible light, infrared rays, microwave and radio wave
Electrical Energy o Energy due to the position of electrical charges. o Easily transported through power lines and converted into other forms of energy
Chemical Energy o Energy that is stored in chemical bonds (Food/fuel) The chemical bonds in a matchstick store energy that is transformed into thermal energy when the match is struck.
Thermal Energy Energy due to the motion of the particles in matter (Greater motion=Greater energy) o Also known as: Heat energy A hot object is one whose atoms and molecules are excited and show rapid movement. A cooler object's molecules and atoms will show less movement.
Sound energy Energy caused by vibration of particles of matter
Nuclear energy Energy stored in nucleus of atoms.
Elastic Potential energy Energy that is stored in an object that is stretched, compressed or coiled
