Forms of energy

  1. 1. Forms of Energy
  2. 2. There are 6 forms  Mechanical  Thermal  Chemical  Electrical  Electromagnet  Nuclear
  3. 3. Mechanical Energy Deals with the motion of an object Examples Running Flipping
  4. 4. Thermal Energy  Made from the atoms moving in an object  Atoms are the building blocks of matter  We associate this with heat  Heat causes the atoms to move faster  Thermal energy is involved when boiling liquids
  5. 5. Chemical Energy  Energy stored in bonds of chemical compounds  Chemical compounds are the combination of atoms and molecules  Water is a chemical compound – it is the combination of oxygen and hydrogen molecules  When you eat, you release chemical energy  Chemical energy could be released during chemical reactions as well.
  6. 6. Electrical Energy  The moving of electrical charges that produces electricity and energy  Examples:  Anything that requires electricity to work…like your TV, your computer
  7. 7. Nuclear Energy  Energy that is stored in the nucleus of an atom from fission of fusion  The nucleus is the center of the atom that contains the protons and neutrons (electrons are found outside of the nucleus)  Fission – one atom SPLITS into two  Uranium is usually used in nuclear power plants  The Uranium atom is split to release nuclear energy  Fusion - two atoms COMBINE into one  This only occurs in the sun!!!
