In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion. It is defined as the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity. Having gained this energy during its acceleration, the body maintains this kinetic energy unless its speed changes.

Gravitational energy is potential energy associated with the gravitational field. This phrase is found frequently in scientific writings about quasars (quasi-stellar objects) and other active galaxies.

In the physical sciences, mechanical energy is the sum of potential energyand kinetic energy. It is the energy associated with the motion and position of an object.

Elastic energy is the potential mechanical energy stored in the configuration of a material or physical system as work is performed to distort its volume or shape. [citationneeded] Elastic energy occurs when objects are compressed and stretched.

the energy released during nuclear fission or fusion, especially when used to generate electricity.

Magnetic Energy

noun, Electricity. 1. a scalar quantity, analogous to the electric potential, defined at each point in a given magnetic field to be equal to the work done in bringing a unit north pole from infinity to the point. Also called magnetic scalar potential.

.Thermal energy is the energy that comes from heat. This heat is generated by the movement of tiny particles within an object. The faster these particles move, the more heat is generated.

Thermal Energy

Electrical energy is the energy newly derived from electric potential energy. When loosely used to describe energy absorbed or delivered by an electrical circuit (for example, one provided by an electric power utility) "electrical energy" talks about energy which has been converted from electrical potential energy.

In physics, potential energy is the energy that an object has due to its position in a force field or that a system has due to the configuration of its parts.

Potential Energy

Elastic Energy

chemical compounds (atoms and molecules). It is released in a chemical reaction, often producing heat as a by product (exothermic reaction). Batteries, biomass, petroleum, natural gas, and coal are examples of stored chemical energy.
