In complete sentences describe the 4 types of energy.
Using examples will help you describe energy!
Do Now Answer:
One type of energy is mechanical energy. Mechanical energy happens whenever something moves. For example when we walk we are using mechanical energy.
Another type of energy is electrical energy. A fan that is plugged into a wall socket uses electrical energy to work. When the blades move in a fan it is also using mechanical energy.
A third type of energy is heat energy. Heat energy is also called thermal energy. When something is hot, like fire, it has heat (thermal) energy.
Finally there is chemical energy. Chemical energy happens when matter breaks down or combines chemically. For example, when you eat an apple your body digests the apple so you can use it to move around (mechanical and chemical energy!)
