Forms of Energy Worksheets

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can transfer from one form of energy to the next. Energy takes on a wide variety of forms. Thermal (heat) energy is caused by the vibration of atoms with a substance. Nuclear energy is given off when the nuclei of atoms are either combined or split. Electrical energy is a rapid movement of electrons. Light energy is produced when an object's atoms heat up. These worksheets will help students explore many different forms of energy.
