1

Chemical store

energy stored as chemicals waiting to react

2

Kinetic store

energy stored in objects that move

3

Gravitational potential store

energy stored in objects raised up against the force of gravity

4

Elastic potential store

energy stored in an object that has to be stretched

5

Internal store

energy stored in the movement of particles. It is a combination of kinetic energy of the particles and the potential energy of particles that are apart from eachother

6

Nuclear store

energy stored in the nuclei of atoms that can fuse (nuclear fusion) or split (nuclear fission)

7

Magnetic store

energy stored in magnets that are attracting or repelling

8

Mechanical transfer

energy transferred when a force moves through a distance

9

Electrical transfer

energy transferred when a charge moves

10

Radiation transfer

energy transferred by electromagnetic radiation

11

Heat transfer

energy transferred when an object is heated
