Energy Transformation
To differentiate between different
types of energy and their transfer
Essential Question:
What do we mean when we use the term “CONSERVATION OF ENERGY?
Chemical Energy
Chemical Energy is energy stored in the bonds of chemical
compounds (atoms and molecules). It is released in a
chemical reaction.
Batteries, petroleum, natural gas, and coal are examples of
stored chemical energy.
Usually, once chemical energy is released from a substance,
that substance is transformed into an entirely new substance.
For example, when an
explosive goes off,
chemical energy stored
in it is transferred to the
surroundings as
thermal energy, sound en
ergy and kinetic energy.
The dry wood is a store of chemical
energy. As it burns in the fireplace,
chemical energy is released and
converted to thermal energy (heat) and
light energy. Notice that the wood now
turns into ashes (a new substance)
Heat (Thermal Energy)
Matter is made up of particles or molecules. These
molecules move (or vibrate) constantly. A rise in the
temperature of matter makes the particles vibrate faster.
Thermal energy is what we call energy that comes from the
temperature of matter. The hotter the substance, the more
its molecules vibrate, and the therefore the higher its
thermal energy.
Heat and Temperature are not the same thing.
Heat and Temperature are not the same thing.
Mechanical Energy
The sum of kinetic and potential energy in an object
that is used to do work.
The sum of the potential and kinetic energy that the
hammer acquired to drive in the nail is called the
Mechanical energy, which resulted in the work done.
Electromagnetic Energy
Electromagnetic /Radiant energy is energy of
electromagnetic waves. It is a form of energy that can
travel through space.
For example, we receive the heat from the sun, which
is located very far from the earth via radiation. The
sun's heat is not transmitted through any solid
medium, but through a vacuum. This is possible by
electromagnetic waves.
Electrical Energy
Matter is made up of atoms. In these atoms, there
are some even small stuff called electrons that are
constantly moving. The movement of these electrons
depend on how much energy is has. This means
every object has potential energy, even though some
have more than others.
Once we harness
electrical energy, it
can be used for
work or stored.
Lightning is one good example of electrical energy in nature
Nuclear Energy:
The Sun, nuclear reactors,
and the interior of the Earth,
all have "nuclear reactions" as
the source of their energy, that is, reactions that
involve changes in the structure of the nuclei of atoms.
In the Sun, hydrogen nuclei fuse (combine) together to
make helium nuclei, in a process called fusion, which
releases energy.
In a nuclear reactor, or in the interior of the Earth,
Uranium nuclei (and certain other heavy elements in
the Earth's interior) split apart, in a process called
fission. In both cases, fusion or fission, some of the
matter making up the nuclei is actually converted into
What are the properties of energy?
-- Energy can be transferred from one object or
system to another through the interaction of
forces between the objects
-- Energy comes in multiple forms: kinetic,
potential, thermal (heat), chemical,
electromagnetic, and nuclear energy.
-- Energy can be converted from any one of
these forms into any other, and vice versa.
- - Energy is always conserved, that is, it is
never created anew or destroyed
