Types of Energy is a brief video clip that describes the different types of energy that we discuss in class.
- Nuclear energy
- Thermal/Heat energy
- Light energy (referred to as radiant energy)
- Sound energy
- Electrical energy
- Gravitational potential energy
- Kinetic energy (referred to as motion energy)
- Chemical energy
- Elastic energy (referred to as stored mechanical energy)
Energy has two basic forms: potential and kinetic. However, there are several types of energy, which are listed above.
