Energy is all around us. The 10 forms of energy are listed below:
The law of conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed but can be changed. When something happens, energy is transformed from one form to another. The energy input is the energy that goes into an object or system and the energy output is the energy that comes out. For example, electrical energy is the energy input to a lamp and light energy is the output. Depending on the lightbulb used, thermal/heat energy may also be an energy output.
