types of energy energy is the ability to cause change.

there are to main types of energy potential and kinetic energy

1.-potential energy- energy objects contains due to its position and chemical makeup chemical energy- energy stored in the chemical bond of the atom which is released in a chemical reaction nuclear energy - energy stored in atoms nucleus radiant energy- energy transferred through electromagnetic waves mechanical energy- is the sum of potential and kinetic energy

2.-kinetic energy-energy in movement electrical energy- energy transferred by an electric current thermal energy- is the total amount of energy in an object sound- energy transferred via sound waves
