|Chemical||Stored in bonds of atoms and molecules.|
|Radiant||Energy that comes to us in waves. Electromatic waves.|
|Thermal||The vibration and movement of molecules.|
|Mechanical||An objects movement creates energy.|
|Sound||Vibrations that are transmitted through air,water or another medium and produce a sensation in the air.|
|Nuclear||Stored in the nucleus of an atom when nucleus splits or combines.|
|Electrical||Electrons flow and produce energy.|
|Transfers heat from a warm object to a colder one through direct contact. (Have to touch).
EX. Burning logs in a fire place- New logs will burn when they are introduced to the ones that are already burning.
|Transfers heat in a fluid through currents.
EX. Convection ovens allow for heat to be spread quickly and easily for baking to happen faster.
|Heat is transferred through electromatic waves.
EX. Radiation is how heat is transferred from the sun through space to earth.
|Chemical Energy||Chemical Energy can come from fossil fuels (coal, petroleum, natural gas)* Chemical Energy can be transformed into heat energy and electricity.|
|Chemical Energy Definition||A form of potential energy that is stored in chemical bonds between atoms.|
|Electrical Energy||Energy caused by the movement of electrons.|
|Energy||Ability to do work.|
|Energy Transformation||A process in which energy changes from one form to another form while some of the other energy is lost to the environment.|
|Fission||The splitting of an atomic nucleus to release thermal energy.|
|Fusion||A process in which the nuclei of two atoms combine to form a larger nucleus.|
|Joule||A unit of work equal to one newton-meter, measurement of energy.|
|Kinetic Energy||The energy of motion.|
|Mechanical Energy||Kinetic or potential energy associated with the motion or position of an object.|
