frequency
Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time

potential energy
In physics, potential energy is energy possessed by a body by virtue of its position relative to others, stresses within itself, electric charge, and other factors
Got it
kinetic energy
In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion
Got it
heat
In physics, heat is energy that spontaneously passes between a system and its surroundings in some way other than through work or the transfer of matter
Got it
Energy
In physics, energy is a property of objects which can be transferred to other objects or converted into different forms
Got it
chemical energy
In chemistry, chemical energy is the potential of a chemical substance to undergo a transformation through a chemical reaction to transform other chemical substances
Got it
chemical bonds
A chemical bond is a lasting attraction between atoms that enables the formation of chemical compounds

Thermal energy
In thermodynamics, thermal energy refers to the internal energy present in a system due to its temperature
work
In physics, a force is said to do work if, when acting there is a displacement of the point of application in the direction of the force
energy transformation
Energy transformation or energy conversion is the process of changing one form of energy to another form of energy
exothermic reaction
An exothermic reaction is a chemical reaction that releases energy by light or heat
geothermal
Geothermal energy is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth
wind farms
A wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used to produce electricity
wind turbines
A wind turbine is a device that converts the wind's kinetic energy into electrical power
tidal energy
Tidal power, also called tidal energy, is a form of hydropower that converts the energy obtained from tides into useful forms of power, mainly electricity
endothermic reaction
The term endothermic process describes a process or reaction in which the system absorbs energy from its surroundings; usually, but not always, in the form of heat
fission
In nuclear physics and nuclear chemistry, nuclear fission is either a nuclear reaction or a radioactive decay process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts
fusion
In nuclear physics, nuclear fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei come close enough to form one or more different atomic nuclei and subatomic particles
