Energy comes in two basic forms: potential and kinetic
- Potential Energy is any type of stored energy. It can be chemical, nuclear, gravitational, or mechanical.
- Kinetic Energy is found in movement.
- THERMAL ENERGY AND TEMPERATURE.
What are the six main forms of energy?
There are many forms of energy: like solar, wind, wave and thermal to name a few, but the 6 Forms of Energy we study in Needham are: Sound, Chemical, Radiant, Electric, Atomic and Mechanical. Sound Energy- is produced when an object is made to vibrate. Sound energy travels out as waves in all directions.
What are the different forms of energy in biology?
Organisms use energy to survive, grow, respond to stimuli, reproduce, and for every type of biological process. The potential energy stored in molecules can be converted to chemical energy, which can ultimately be converted to kinetic energy, enabling an organism to move.
