What are some types of energy?
Solar powered, chemical, nuclear, gravitational, mechanical, etc.
Energy comes in two basic forms: Potential and Kinetic
Potential Energy=any type of stored energy; can be chemical, nuclear, gravitational, elastic, or mechanical.
Forms of Potential Energy:
Kinetic Energy=found in movement; even the tiniest things have kinetic energy, like atoms vibrating when they are hot or when they transmit sound waves. Electricity kinetic energy of flowing electrons between atoms.
Example: An airplane flying or a meteor plummeting both have kinetic energy.
Forms of Kinetic Energy:
-thermal energy/ temperature
