Types of Energy

Binding Energy
Binding Energy

Binding energy. Binding energy is the energy required to disassemble a whole system into separate parts. A bound system typically has a lower potential energy than the sum of its constituent parts; this is what keeps the system together. Often this means that energy is released upon the creation of a bound state.

Chemical Energy
Chemical Energy

Chemical energy Chemical Energy is released when bonds form in a chemical reaction, often producing heat as a by-product (exothermic reaction). There are two important terms to know in the study of chemical energy. 1. Exoergic: An exothermic (exoergic) nuclear reaction is a reaction that releases energy when chemical bonds form. 2.

Elastic Potential Energy
Elastic Potential Energy

What is elastic potential energy? What materials can store elastic potential energy? Here are some eamples of elastic potential energy at work

Electric Potential Energy
Electric Potential Energy

Electrical energy is potential energy, which is energy stored in an object due to the object's position. Well, in terms of electrical energy, the object is the charged particle, and the position is the location of that charged particle within the electric field.

Electrical Energy
Electrical Energy

Electrical energy is a type of potential energy, or energy stored in an object due to the position of the object. In the case of electrical energy, the object is the charged particle, and the position is within the electric field.

Gravitational Energy
Gravitational Energy

Gravitational energy is the movement of an object or mass that is caused by the pull of gravity. This is caused on Earth by the strong attraction of all other masses to be drawn back to Earth's center. An example of gravitational energy is water from a river tumbling over a cliff to form a waterfall.

Kinetic Energy
Kinetic Energy

All moving things have kinetic energy. It is energy possessed by an object due to its motion or movement. These include very large things, like planets, and very small ones, like atoms.

Magnetic Energy
Magnetic Energy

Magnetic energy is the energy within a magnetic field. This energy results in various metals either repelling or attracting each other.

Potential Energy
Potential Energy

Potential energy. In physics, Potential Energy is the energy possessed by an object because of its position relative to other objects, stresses within itself, its electric charge, or other factors.

Quantum Chromodynamics Binding Energy
Quantum Chromodynamics Binding Energy

The quantum chromodynamics binding energy (QCD binding energy), gluon binding energy or chromodynamic binding energy is the energy binding quarks together into hadrons. It is the energy of the field of the strong force, which is mediated by gluons.

Radiant Energy
Radiant Energy

Radiant energy is the energy of electromagnetic waves. It is a form of energy that can travel through space. For example, we receive the heat from the sun, which is located very far from the earth via radiation.

Radiation
Radiation

In physics, and in particular as measured by radiometry, radiant energy is the energy of electromagnetic and gravitational radiation. As energy, its SI unit is the joule (J). The quantity of radiant energy may be calculated by integrating radiant flux (or power) with respect to time.

Rotational Energy
Rotational Energy

The rotational energy of a rolling cylinder varies from one half of the translational energy (if it is massive) to the same as the translational energy (if it is hollow). An example is the calculation of the rotational kinetic energy of the Earth.

Solar Energy
Solar Energy

Solar energy is, simply, energy provided by the sun. This energy is in the form of solar radiation, which makes the production of solar electricity possible. Electricity can be produced directly from photovoltaic, PV, cells.

Sound Energy
Sound Energy

Sound energy. Sound is the movement of energy through substances in longitudinal (compression/rarefaction) waves. Sound is produced when a force causes an object or substance to vibrate — the energy is transferred through the substance in a wave.

Surface Energy
Surface Energy

For a liquid, the surface tension (force per unit length) and the surface energy density are identical. Water has a surface energy density of 0.072 J/m^2 and a surface tension of 0.072 N/m; the units are equivalent.

Thermal Energy
Thermal Energy

Thermal energy is energy possessed by an object or system due to the movement of particles within the object or the system. Thermal energy is one of various types of energy, where 'energy' can be defined as 'the ability to do work.' Work is the movement of an object due to an applied force.
