Energy transfer is an important concept in science. Light energy, kinetic energy and electrical energy are different forms of energy. In the previous chapter, we know that electrical energy and light energy are interchangeable. We also know that kinetic energy and electric energy can also transfer to each other.
5Ee5 Energy Transfer Cycle – Energy Transfer Model
The concept of energy transfer:
The energy form can be divided into two categories: kinetic energy and “potential energy”. All forms of energy are kinetic energy, potential energy or a combination of both. There is a wide range of energy forms such as heat, electricity, magnetic energy, elastic energy and light energy. Different energy can be transferred between these forms through energy transfer machine called energy “converter”.
