Kinetic Energy Vs Potential Energy Essay

First, Energy has multiple forms that can switch different states. The two most common forms of energy are, Kinetic and Potential Energy. Kinetic Energy is the energy created when an object is in motion. It can be transferred between two objects if the object has enough energy, therefor it can be from of a collision. Kinetic energy can also be elastic or inelastic energy, however Potential Energy is an energy, but is potentially created before Kinetic Energy. Both types of energy are measured in a unit called Joules. And inside of these two types of energy there are sub types of energy's such as microwaves, gamma rays, x-rays, and ultraviolet rays. These types of energy are measured on an electromagnetic spectrum, which sub-classes the type of energy based on their wavelengths. The higher the wavelengths the higher the energy will be ranked in the seven stages.
Next, Electromagnetic Energy is all around us and we are basically waves traveling through space at the speed of light. Therefor Electromagnetic Energy can happen because of an electromagnetic field, forcing an atomic particle to move. Electromagnetic energy gives off wavelengths, which is the distance between

The first law identifies heat and works as a method of transferring energy, which brings a change in the internal energy of a photon. Heat can also be described as the change in temperature either increasing (hot) or temperature decreasing (cold). Along with heat, calorimetry is the study of science associated with the determination of the changes of energy in a system by measuring the heat exchanged with its surrounding. And to find the exchange of heat from one object to another you have to use a calorimeter, that can measure the heat from one object to another. And they often use a bomb calorimeter, which helps them measure heat exchanges heat associated with chemical reactions, especially combustion
