Energy by Mind Map: Energy

1. Types of Potential Energy

1.1. Gravitational- The further something is from the center of earth, the more mass and potential energy is has

1.2. Chemical- Energy that's created through the relationship of atoms and chemicals; energy is transferred when chemical reactions happen and the atoms rearrange

1.3. Elastic- Energy that's stored in liquid or gases that can also be stored mechanically; there's a strain placed of bonds between atoms, and when they relax, energy is released

1.4. How does distance between objects affect transfer of energy between systems?

1.4.1. Factors affecting PE of a system with two objects interacting:

2. Everyday Examples

2.1. Heat from a drink (kinetic energy), light from a light bulb (kinetic energy), moving vehicles (kinetic energy)

2.2. Stretched rubber band (potential energy), a coiled spring (potential energy), charged battery (potential energy)

3. Types of Kinetic Energy

3.1. Sound- Sound energy is the vibrations of matter. This allows it to travel anywhere through anything; even water. Sound energy doesn't produce a lot of energy like other forms do (767 mph)

3.2. Motion- Kinetic energy is the amount of energy something has due to its motion.

3.3. Thermal Temperature- Heat is how thermal energy flows. Thermal energy is produced when particles within an object move around faster; consequently producing heat.

4. What's Energy?

4.1. Energy is something that's transferred into an object to heat and/or power an object

4.1.1. Energy is mainly measured with Joules and Kilowatts (one hour of constant energy flow)

5. Energy's Source

5.1. Energy is constantly recycled, and cannot be created nor destroyed and energy has the potential to be any other type of energy

5.1.1. Energy is never restored exactly how it was created as there's usually half the energy reproduced into another form

6. Forms

6.1. Mass, height from gravitational point, mass, and the force from the gravitational point affects the amount of potential energy

6.1.1. Kinetic Energy/KE depends on mass/m and velocity/v (KE = 0.5 • m • v2)

6.2. Potential Energy: Any type of energy that's stored

6.3. Kinetic Energy: Energy found in movement; things such aws moving vehicles, atoms, or heat waves
