Energy is everywhere. Energy makes things work, from reading a book to cooking dinner. Some energy is stored as potential energy that has potential to do something. There are eight types of energy. The first type of energy is motion energy. Motion energy, judging from its name, is energy in things that motion. Anything that is currently moving is a form of motion energy. The second type of energy is chemical energy. Chemical energy can be found in food (though it mostly doesn’t have chemicals in it), gasoline, and batteries. Gravitational energy, the third type, is in things and humans that are about to fall down due to the gravitational pull. Elastic energy is stored in things that get pulled down to launch objects and people. Trampolines and pogo-sticks are a form of elastic energy. The fourth type, heat energy results in temperature. We use heat energy for most household jobs like ironing. Light energy, my favorite type of energy, is energy that gets taken by rays of the light. Electrical energy, as you probably guessed, is energy that electricity provides. Finally! The last one, sound energy. Sound energy is energy that sound waves carry. Energy makes everything happen.
