## What are the 2 types of energy give examples?

Although there are many specific types of energy, the two major forms are Kinetic Energy and Potential Energy.

• Kinetic energy is the energy in moving objects or mass. Examples include mechanical energy, electrical energy etc.
• Potential energy is any form of energy that has stored potential that can be put to future use.

## What are two states of energy?

States of Energy

All energy can be in one of two states: potential energy or kinetic energy.

## What is the two types of kinetic energy?

There are five types of kinetic energy: radiant, thermal, sound, electrical and mechanical.

## What are the 4 types of energy do humans have?

Kinetic, potential, and chemical energy.

## What is formula of kinetic energy?

Kinetic energy is directly proportional to the mass of the object and to the square of its velocity: K.E. = 1/2 m v2. If the mass has units of kilograms and the velocity of meters per second, the kinetic energy has units of kilograms-meters squared per second squared.
