Energy by Mind Map: Energy

1. Potential

1.1. Types that are also involved

1.1.1. Chemical

1.1.2. Stored Mechanical

1.1.3. Gravitational

1.1.4. Nuclear

1.2. Stored energy that results from the position/shape of an object

1.3. Does not need to be in motion to result to having energy

1.4. The more an object weighs/greater the object's height, the greater its gravitational potential energy

1.5. When an object is stretched out or compressed, it is called elastic potential energy

1.5.1. Bow and arrow e.g. - when the arrow is pulled back, bow morphes shape, creating potential energy within, and it is released when the bow is released, making the arrow fly.

1.6. When related to an object's height, it is called gravitational potential energy

1.6.1. Equal to the work (energy wasted) to lift it

1.6.2. Gravitational potential energy = Weight X Height

2. Gravitational

2.1. Energy of place

2.2. Energy of position

3. Stored Mechanical

3.1. Stored in objects

3.2. Created by force

4. Nuclear

4.1. Stored in a nucleus of an atom

5. Kinetic

5.1. Types that are also involved

5.1.1. Thermal

5.1.2. Electric

5.1.3. Motion

5.1.4. Sound

5.1.5. Radiant

5.2. The energy an object has due to motion

5.3. Kinetic energy = 1/2 x Mass x Velocity^2

5.4. Energy increases once velocity increases

5.5. More mass equals to more kinetic energy

6. Radiant

6.1. Electromagnetic energy

6.1.1. Travels in transverse waves

7. Sound

7.1. Movement of energy in between substances, but is more like vibration

8. Motion

8.1. From moving to a place from another

8.2. Wind and hydropower are examples

9. Electric

9.1. Movement of electrons

9.2. Lightning and Electricity are examples

11. Thermal

11.1. Within or known as heat

11.2. Rapidly moving

11.3. In the movement of atoms and molecules within a substance

12. Renewable

12.1. Solar

12.1.1. Light

12.1.2. Heat

12.2. Wind

12.2.1. Moving air

12.3. Hydro

12.3.1. Moving water

12.4. Bio

12.4.1. Found in biological substances

12.5. Geothermal

12.5.1. Heat found inside earth

13. Non-renewable

15.10. You can nod destroy energy

16. Form

16.1. Indirect

16.1.1. Artificial

16.1.1.1. Batteries of sort

16.1.2. Natural

16.1.2.1. Heat

16.2. Direct
