## Kinetic Energy: Types and Examples of Kinetic Energy

We know that the earth revolves around the sun, birds fly in the sky, trains run on tracks, cars move on the road, but all these happen because of kinetic energy. Let’s make this clearer. There are two primary forms of energy. One is potential (stored) energy, and the other is kinetic energy. In physics, …

## Kinetic and Potential Energy: Examples and Differences Between Both of Them

In Physics, energy is used to refer to an ability to do work. Energy exists in various forms. This includes Gravitational energy, Chemical energy, Radiant energy, Mechanical energy, Sonic energy, Thermal energy, Nuclear or atomic energy, Magnetic energy and Electrical energy amongst many others. These types of energy can be converted from one form to …

## Potential Energy: Types and Examples of Potential Energy

To start with, energy in Physics is referred to as the ability to do work. It is a measure of an object or body’s capacity to do work. In Physics, work is said to be done when a force of 1 Newton moves an object through a distance of 1 meter in the direction of …

## What is Potential Energy: Types and Facts

Many different forms of energy can be called a Potential energy. Each one of these forms of energy is connected with a force that acts accordingly to the characteristic of the matter (mass, elasticity, temperature and electric charge). Potential energy can be described as 3 characteristics that a specific object has. The shape of an …

## Mechanical Energy: Forms, Examples and Facts

Whether you are running a hundred meter-long track, or just lying aimlessly on your bed, one thing remains true: you are doing work. In doing such work, you are employing a particular form of energy which enables you to move or stay in position. This form of energy is called mechanical energy. Mechanical energy is …

## What is Energy and What are Different Types of Energy?

In the simplest terms, energy is the ability to do work. Energy is also represented in terms of any source of usable power. In different ways, energy is used to do almost everything such as jumping, walking and the operation of machinery. For instance, the foods human consume contain energy which is stored in the …
