Energy Basics – Energy is the ability to do work

Energy comes in different forms:

  • Heat (thermal)
  • Light (radiant)
  • Motion (kinetic)
  • Electrical
  • Chemical
  • Nuclear energy
  • Gravitational

People use energy for everything from making a jump shot to sending astronauts into space. 

There are two types of energy:

  • Stored (potential) energy
  • Working (kinetic) energy

For example, the food a person eats contains chemical energy, and a person’s body stores this energy until he or she uses it as kinetic energy during work or play.

Energy sources can be categorized as renewable or nonrenewable

When people use electricity in their homes, the electrical power was probably generated by burning coal, by a nuclear reaction, or by a hydroelectric plant on a river, to name just a few sources.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to
    get that “perfect balance” between superb usability
    and appearance. I must say you have done a superb
    job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast
    for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

    hesitate a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.
