Different Forms Of Energy
Heat energy is the form of energy that results from the total kinetic energy of the particles in any object. It is transferred as a result of random motion of molecules which leads to them bouncing off each other and transferring energy in the process. It is also sometimes referred to as the energy in transit. Heat flows from a body of higher temperature (high total kinetic energy of the particles) to a body of lower temperature (low total kinetic energy of the particles).
Forms of Energy: Chemical Energy
Plants use solar energy, carbon dioxide and water to synthesize food. This food is consumed by humans and animals, is broken down in their bodies and they get energy for life activities. They are all examples of chemical energy.
Forms of Energy: Electrical Energy
Forms of Energy: The Equivalence of Mass and Energy
E = mc2
Where E is the energy, m is the mass of the body and c is the speed of light in vacuum which is approximately equal to 3 x 108 m/sec.
Forms of Energy: Nuclear Energy
