Energy exists in many different forms, and can also vary enormously in size.

This chart shows some of the different forms of energy, and examples of how big or small they are.

The Unit of energy is the Joule (J), and is roughly the amount of work you do when you lift an apple above your head!

1 nanojoule = 1 microjoule = 1 millijoule 1 Joule 1 Kilojoule

1 nJ 1 µJ

1 Megajoule = 1 MJ = 1 Gigajoule = 1 GJ =

The smallest amount of energy represented here is about 10-12 J. 10-12 J = 0.000 000 000 001 J

The largest is about 1025 1025 = 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 J
