What is energy and what are the different types of energy

Energy is such kind of a word that does not escape our usage at least once in a day. Do you really know what energy is and what its different types are? Even when we know what them are, it may keep us stammer as to present it wisely and acceptably. Hence we help you understand and present it crisply what is energy and what are the different types.

What is energy?

Energy is within us and all around us. The existence of the universe is only because of its energy. So energy can be broadly defined as the capacity or ability to do work such as moving an object, lifting an object and changing the direction of the object. It exists in different forms like mechanical energy, chemical energy, heat energy, light energy, atomic energy and so on. Mostly all forms of energy are associated with motion. Energy can be converted from one form to the other. The “law of the conservation of energy” states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed but can be transferred from one form to the other. So as per the rule, the amount of energy present in the universe will remain constant because energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It is just being transformed into different forms and transferred into different sectors. The different types of energy are kinetic energy, potential energy, gravitational energy, nuclear energy, heat energy, chemical energy, electric energy, wind energy, electromagnetic energy, sound energy, solar energy and magnetic energy. The unit of energy is measured in joule.
