Stored energy in fuel, foods and batteries

4

Thermal Energy.

Also called heat energy

5

Nuclear Energy

Stored in the nuclei of atoms

11

Work Done

Work done is a change in momentum and is measured in joules (j)

12

Equation for work done

Workdone (j) = force [newtons] x distance (m)

13

The total momentum in a explosion or collision stays the same. As a change in momentum happens when a force is applied.

Fact.

14

Work done is...

Work done is the total amount of energy put into an object by movement
