Energy and Energy Resources by Mind Map: Energy and Energy Resources

1. Thermal Energy

1.1. The total energy of the particles that make up an object

1.2. At higher temperatures, the particles move faster.

1.3. Depends on the number of particles in a substance

2. Chemical Energy

2.1. A form of potential energy

2.2. The energy of a compound that changes as its atoms are rearranged to form new compounds

3. Energy

3.1. Kinetic Energy

3.1.1. the energy of motion

3.2. Potential Energy

3.2.1. The energy an object has because of its position or shape.

3.3. Mechanical Energy

3.3.1. The total energy

4. Electrical Energy

4.1. The energy of moving electrons

4.2. Produced at power plants and sent through wires to houses

5. Sound Energy

5.1. Caused by an object's vibration

5.2. As the object vibrates it makes the air particles vibrate until it reaches your ear.

5.3. For an object to vibrate, it must do work

6. Light Energy

6.1. Produced by the vibrations of electrically charged particles

7. Nuclear Energy

7.1. The energy associated with changes in the nucleus of an atom

7.2. There are two ways for nuclear energy to be produced; One by splitting the nucleus of an atom and joining together two nuclei

8. Forms of Energy

9. Energy Conversion

9.1. A change from one form of energy into another

9.2. Any form of energy can be converted into any other form of energy and often more than one form of energy can become more than one.

10. Law of Conservation of Energy

10.1. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but changed by ordinary chemical and physical changes

11. Friction

11.1. The force that opposes motion between two things that are touching

11.2. Some of the energy is converted into thermal energy
