Energy: What are the different types of energy we learned about in Chapter 10? Kinetic energy – Energy in action (moving or lifting something) Potential Energy-stored or inactive energy What makes them all “energy”? Can you think of any other kinds? Energy has a number of different forms, all of which measure the ability of an object or system to do work on another object or system. ( Energy Concepts Primer, 2011) Thermal energy, Chemical Energy, solar energy What is an energy wavelength? How is it similar or different from a wave in the ocean? The distance between two peaks of a wave is the wavelength. The amount of energy is related to the wavelength of the light: the shorter the wavelength, the greater the energy of each photon of the light. The velocity of idealized traveling waves on the ocean is wavelength dependent and for shallow enough depths, it also depends upon the depth of the water. The bigger the wave the more energy it produces. (Nave, 2011) This is different than an energy wavelength that goes by the shorter the wave
