After we have learnt what energy is, now we are going to learn something in more detail.
That is - different types of energy. Energy exists in many forms.
Below are some common forms of energy:
Q1: Sun : The sun sends out energy and energy.
Q2: When you are on the top of a mountain, you have energy.
Q3: A running cat: A running cat has energy.
Q4: Dry cell: Dry cell gives out energy
Q5: Lamp: Electric lamp gives out energy and energy.
Now, can you recognized 8 different types of energy we have mentioned above? If you
haven*t, go to the summary and have a quick look!
Kinetic energy: When an object is moving, it has Kinetic energy.
Example: When we are running, we are giving out kinetic energy.
Potential energy: When an object is lifted above the ground, it has Potential energy.
Example: When we are benting a bow, it has potential energy.
Heat energy: It is a kind of energy which produce heat.
Example: When a heater is turned on, it gives out heat energy.
Light energy: It is a kind of energy which produce light.
Example: When we turn on a lamp, it will give out light energy.
Sound energy: It is a kind of energy which produce sound.
Example: When we turn on our radio, it will give out sound energy.
Electrical energy: This type of energy will electricity.
Example: When we switch on an air-conditioner, the room will become cool. Electricity is
provided by electrical energy.
Chemical energy: These energy is stored in chemicals.
Example: When we are eating, we are actually gaining chemical energy
Nuclear energy: These energy is used to produces electricity by the nuclear power station.
