CHEMICAL ENERGY is the energy stored in the bonds between atoms and molecules. Food, fuel, and the energy stored in the chemicals inside a battery are examples. NUCLEAR ENERGY is the energy stored in the nucleus of an atom – the energy that holds the nucleus together. The energy in the nucleus of a uranium atom or in the nuclei of atoms in our Sun are examples. MECHANICAL POTENTIAL ENERGY is energy stored in objects due to shape or position. Compressed springs, stretched rubber bands, an apple hanging from a tree, and a parked car at the top of a hill are examples. RADIANT/LIGHT ENERGY is electromagnetic energy that travels in waves. Visible light, UV radiation, xrays, and gamma rays are examples. THERMAL ENERGY or heat is the vibration or movement of atoms and molecules in substances. Heat from a campfire is an example. MECHANICAL KINETIC ENERGY is energy matter has because of its motion. Wind, moving cars, & waterfalls are examples. SOUND is the energy caused by an objects vibrations. Echoes and music are examples. ELECTRICAL ENERGY is the movement of electrons. Lightning and electricity are examples. Name ______________________________ Period ______Date_____________ 1. 2. 3. 4.
