0.2 Types of energy and types of energy stores and calculations

There are many types of energy and energy stores - an alphabetical reminder list and links to notes on each of the types.

You can't analyse an energy transfer situation if you don't know your types of energy and types of energy store!

The types of energy and energy stores you need to know about are listed below.

(a) Chemical potential energy stores

(b) Elastic potential energy stores, calculations & worked out answers

(c) Electrical energy and electrostatic energy stores

(d) Gravitational potential energy stores, calculation questions+answers

(e) Kinetic energy stores, calculation questions & worked out answers

(f) Nuclear energy stores

(g) Thermal energy stores 

(h) Light energy

(i) Sound energy

(j) Magnetic energy stores

Keywords, phrases and learning objectives on energy stores and transfers

Types of energy and types of energy stores and calculations

You also need to be able to:

distinguish between a type of energy associated with a type of energy resource,

(e.g. fossil fuels are source of chemical energy, rainwater is a resource - collected behind a dam forms GPE store and it provides kinetic energy when allowed to flow).

In general be able to describe transfer of energy from one type of energy store to another type,

know how to analyse and describe a series of energy store conversions to produce electricity,

and do all sorts of energy transfer calculations, and examples have been included in pages 0a to 0j - links listed above.
