Energy by Mind Map: Energy

1. Kinetic

1.1. the energy of motion

1.1.1. Example: hammer working on a nail

2. Potential

2.1. the energy an object has because of its position

3. Thermal

3.1. all the kinetic energy from the movement of the particles in an object

4. Mechanical

4.1. total energy of motion and position of an object

4.1.1. kinetic energy + potential energy

5. Chemical

5.1. the energy stored in the chemical bonds that hold the compound together

6. Nuclear

6.1. energy stored in the nucleus of an atom. This includes nuclear fusion and nuclear fission.

6.1.1. Fusion: two or more nuclei join

6.1.2. Fission: nucleus splits and energy is given off

6.2. energy stored in the nucleus of an atom. This includes nuclear fusion and nuclear fission.

7. Light

7.1. Made from vibrations of electrically charged particles

8. Sound

8.1. The energy from a vibrating object

9. Electrical

9.1. The energy of moving particles called electrons

10. Gravitational Potential

10.1. When doing work on an object, you move it in the opposite direction from the force of gravity

10.1.1. objects's weight x height
