This vocabulary defines the forms of energy.
The class of energy forms.
The class of renewable energy forms.
The energy that is contained in molecules.
potential energy that is stored when a body is deformed (as in a coiled spring).
The energy that is from electric fields.
The gravitational potential energy is energy an object possesses because of its position in a gravitational field.
The transfer of energy from one thing to another by kinetic energy, usually causing a higher temperature.
The amount of energy required to remove an electron from an atom to form a cation; also called ionization potential.
The energy of a body or a system with respect to the motion of the body or of the particles in the system.
The energy that is from magnetic fields.
The power that an object gets from its position and motion.
The power that an object gets from energy propagated by a material’s oscillations.
The energy released by reactions within atomic nuclei, as in nuclear fission or fusion.
The energy of a body or a system with respect to the position of the body or the arrangement of the particles of the system.
The energy transmitted in wave motion, especially electromagnetic wave motion.
The energy equivalent to the mass of a particle at rest in an inertial frame of reference, equal to the rest mass times the square of the speed of light.
