POINTS TO PONDER Chemical, sound, thermal, mechanical, radiant, nuclear, and electrical are forms of energy. Chemical energy is stored in substances. Mechanical energy is found in moving bodies such as wheels, windmills, and running water. Nuclear energy can be both helpful or harmful to man. Radiant energy is used to dry our clothes, disinfect our beddings, or diagnose diseases.
