Types of Energy
These are the two main types of energy:
Kinetic: energy in motion
Potential: stored energy
The following forms of energy can be grouped into those two types.
Heat (Thermal Energy): internal motion of molecules. Ex. water boiling,
turning to steam.
Mechanical: energy from motion and moving parts. Ex. bicycle while
moving.
Electrical: energy from an electric current. Ex. a burner on an electric
stove.
Sound: energy through sound vibrations. Ex. musical instruments.
Light: also known as Electromagnetic. Energy through light waves Ex.
photosynthesis in plants.
Chemical: stored energy. Ex. gasoline, food.
Gravitational: motion from the pull of gravity. Greater when closer to
centre of earth. Ex. waterfall.
Elastic: energy stored in a spring or elastic band (anything with
tension). Ex. elastic band.
Magnetic: energy of attraction between objects. Ex. compass.
Nuclear: energy released from split or fused together nuclei. Ex. the
Sun.
