Forms of Energy

Forms-of-Energy-Mind-Map
Kinetic energy
Radiant Energy
This energy is electromagnetic
and travels in transverse
waves.
Example:
Thermal Energy
This energy is the vibration and movement
of the atoms.
Example:
Motion Energy
This energy is stored in the
movement of objects.
When it happens?
Sound
This energy is movement of energy
through substances in longitudinal
waves.
How it happens?
Electrical Energy
This energy is delivered by tiny charged
particles called electrons, typically moving
through a wire.
Example:
Radio Waves
Sunshine
Gamma Rays
X-rays
Earth's Geothermal Energy
The faster the object travels, more energy it will releae
Sound is produced when a force causes an object to vibrate
Lightning
Potential Energy
Chemical Energy
This energy is stored in the bonds
of atoms and molecules.
Example:
Mechanical Energy
This energy is stored in objects by
tension.
Example:
Nuclear Energy
This energy is stored in the nucleus of an
atom. It is what holds the nucleus
together.
This energy is used in the process of
fusion and fission.
Fusion - The sun combines the
nuclei of hydrogen atoms.
Fission - The nuclei of uranium
atoms are split.
Gravitational Energy
This energy is stored in an
object's height.
Example:
Batteries
Bimass
Coal
Natural Gas
Petroleum
Compressed Springs
Stretched Rubber Bands
Gravitational pull a person feels when riding a bike down the hill
