Everything we touch, the buildings we see, and the cars we ride in. “Energy is the ability to do work, or the ability to move or elicit change in matter (Castro).” It is important to know that energy is always conserved. It cannot be created nor destroyed. There are also two different kinds of energy, potential, and kinetic. Kinetic energy is simply the energy of motion. Potential energy is a stored energy that objects have because of their makeup (Castro).

Electromagnetic Radiation is all over (Lucas). It is the waves from your radio, or the waves being released because of radiation in your favorite outer space based sci-fi movie. Electromagnetic Radiation is simply the form of energy that takes many different forms (Lucas). “Without Electromagnetic Radiation the world would not exist (Tour).” It is said that the EM spectrum is our world’s foundation. Everyday uses involve using the spectrum without even realizing it (Tour). Some might ask if light was a wave, and others might say that light…
