Thermal energy is the energy that is exchanged between two bodies or systems of matter that have different temperatures. Thermal energy is also exchanged when a body changes from one physical state to another.
Kinetic energy (Ec) is the energy of a body in motion. It depends on the mass and the speed of the body.
Potential energy (Ep) is the energy of a body determined by its position. It depends on the body’s mass and position
- Gravitational Potential Energy
- Elastic potential energy
Electrical energy is energy produced by the movement of charged particles (electrons), due to a potential difference.
Radiant energy is energy carried by the electromagnetic waves, such as light, radio waves, microwaves, X-ray or γ rays. It’s called radiation.
Chemical energy is energy stored in substances or materials, substances have chemical energy. Their energy can be observed when a chemical reaction takes place Chemical reactions
Nuclear energy is the energy released by the nuclei of atoms of some chemical elements when they fuse (fusion) or break apart (fission).
