Introduction to Energy

By Oliver Smith

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, and this concept is known as the conservation of energy. Because of this, the universe has a finite amount of energy which is transferred from one form to another. In the early 20th century, Einstein put forth the idea that energy and mass were interchangeable, leading to the most famous equation in Science: E=mc2. The activities in this lesson plan explore different forms of energy and energy transfers through the creation of visual aids.

Storyboard Text

  • NUCLEAR ENERGY
  • MAGNETIC ENERGY
  • KINETIC ENERGY
  • SOUND ENERGY
  • THERMAL ENERGY
  • Energy found in the nucleus of an atom released by nuclear reactions. Examples can be found in nuclear power stations or atomic bombs.
  • Magnetic energy is energy related to magnets or electromagnets.
  • Anything that moves has kinetic energy, such as cars, runners, bullets. The faster something moves or the more mass it has, the more kinetic energy it has.
  • Energy that is released by vibrating objects is sound energy. The larger the vibrations, the more sound energy is released.
  • Thermal energy, also known as heat energy, is caused by the vibration of the particles in a substance. The hotter something is, the more thermal energy it has.
  • ELASTIC POTENTIAL ENERGY
  • LIGHT ENERGY
  • Forms of Energy
  • GRAVITATIONAL POTENTIAL ENERGY
  • ELECTRICAL ENERGY
  • CHEMICAL ENERGY
  • The energy found in objects that are squashed or stretched. Examples are compressed springs and stretched elastic bands.
  • Light energy is also known as radiant energy. This can be found in all types of electromagnetic radiation.
  • Any object that is raised up has gravitational energy. It depends on the strength of gravity, the mass, and the height of the object.
  • This is energy found in moving charges or static electrical charges. Examples can be found in lightning or any electrical circuit.
  • Chemical energy is the energy stored in the bonds between atoms and molecules. This energy can be released by chemical reactions, such as combustion.
