Energy Stores
A means by which objects store energy. There are 8 types of stores.
1 of 16
System
The object, or group of objects that you are considering
2 of 16
Closed System
A system where neither matter nor energy can enter or leave
3 of 16
Work Done
The energy transferred when a force moves an object through a distance or by a moving charge.
4 of 16
Mechanically Transferred
Object moving due to the force acting on it
5 of 16
Electrically Transferred
A charge moving through a potential difference
6 of 16
Transferred by heating
Energy transferred from a hot object to a cold object
7 of 16
Transferred by radiation
Energy transferred by e.g. light/sound waves
8 of 16
Kinetic Energy
Anything that is moving has it
9 of 16
Thermal Energy
Every object has it. The hotter it becomes the more energy it has
10 of 16
Chemical Energy
Anything that can release energy through a chemical reaction
11 of 16
Gravitational Potential Energy
Anything inside a gravitational field and has a mass
12 of 16
Elastic Potential Energy
Anything that is stretched or compressed
13 of 16
Magnetic Energy
Anything that is magnetic and is interacting with another magnet
14 of 16
Electrostatic Energy
Anything with an electric charge, interacting with another electric charge
15 of 16
Nuclear Energy
Atomic nuclei have energy in this store. The energy can be released by a nuclear reaction
