Scientifically, energy is defined as the ability to do work. While there are many forms of energy, they can be grouped into two categories:Potential energy, or stored energy; and Kinetic energy, or energy is a form of potential energy and it is possessed by things such as food, fuels, and batteries. Energy is the ability to cause changes in matter. It can exist in many different forms. Energy can change from one form to another. There are six forms of energy: mechanical, chemical, electrical, light, thermal, and sound energy. Another form of energy is nuclear energy. Mechanical energy is the energy of movement. Chemical energy is energy that is stored in the bonds between the atoms of compounds. If the bonds are broken, the energy is…show more content…
There are many ways to produce energy like using your muscles or starting a fire.We can use up a source of energy, or we can store energy to use at a later time. Some sources of energy will last forever. Even gravity can be a source of energy

Mass and energy are closely related.Any object that has mass when stationary in a frame of reference also has an equal amount of energy whose form is called rest energy in that frame and any additional energy acquired by the object above that rest energy will increase an object 's mass. Also light can carry energy through empty space. Light energy travels from the sun to earth across empty space in the form of electromagnetic energy. Electromagnetic waves are made of magnetic fields. Energy cannot be created or destroyed that is the Law conservation of energy. Energy does not appear or disappear. Some systems may be closed or open isolated. Open system is energy and matter are exchanged with surroundings. Closed system is energy but matter is not exchanged. Isolated system is neither energy or matter is exchanged. Temperature and energy are also related. Temperature of a substance is proportional to the average kinetic energy. All particles have kinetic energy. All particles in a substance are constantly moving. The kelvin scale is based on absolute zero. Temperature is the measure of average kinetic energy.

When two objects that are
