What are the 8 energy stores?

Kinetic
Thermal
Chemical
Gravitational potential
Elastic potential
Electrostatic

Nuclear

2

How do you work out kinetic energy?

Kinetic energy = 0.5 x mass x (speed)2


KE = 1/2 x m x v2

3

How to work out gravitational potential energy ?

GPE = m x g x h

Mass x gravitational field strength x height
