## What is energy that results from the movement of particles?

Thermal energy, or heat, is the energy that comes from the movement of atoms and molecules in a substance. Heat increases when these particles move faster. Geothermal energy is the thermal energy in the earth.

### What type of energy does a moving machine have?

kinetic energy
All types of machines with moving parts use kinetic energy.

What form of energy is transferred into the machine as work?

A common example of energy transfer that we see in everyday life is the transfer of kinetic energy—the energy associated with motion—from one moving object to a stationary object via work. In physics, work is a measure of energy transfer and refers to the force applied by an object over a distance.

Where does heat and motion energy come from?

Thermal energy, or heat, is the energy that comes from the movement of atoms and molecules in a substance. Heat increases when these particles move faster. Geothermal energy is the thermal energy in the earth. Motion energy is energy stored in the movement of objects.

## How does moving particles of a solid increase heat energy?

The moving particles of a warm soild material can increase the heat energy of the particles in a cooler solid material by transferring it directly from one particle to the next. Since particles are closer together, solids conduct heat better than liquids or gases.

### Which is the best example of motion energy?

Geothermal energy is the thermal energy in the earth. Motion energy is energy stored in the movement of objects. The faster they move, the more energy is stored. It takes energy to get an object moving, and energy is released when an object slows down. Wind is an example of motion energy.

How is gravitational energy converted to motion energy?

Large amounts of energy can be released when the nuclei are combined or split apart. Gravitational energy is energy stored in an object’s height. The higher and heavier the object, the more gravitational energy is stored. When a person rides a bicycle down a steep hill and picks up speed, the gravitational energy is converting to motion energy.
