What Is Energy? How Is Energy Different From Space?

Energy is one of the most important aspects of modern life. It can literally make or break the existence of life on earth. If there were no energy then life would cease to exist, because it would be pointless without it.

There are three basic types of energy readily available to us: Kinetic energy, Potential energy, and Kinesthetic energy. These three types of energy are utilized to perform work, to produce heat, and also to give motive energy to our bodies. Kinetic energy is nothing more than energy that is carried by particles. For instance, an electron is carrying around energy in the form of an electron plus a proton, and that electron is shooting off energy in the form of a photon. That photon is actually a little piece of kinetic energy that is moving around a space-time bubble in the form of a radio wave that has traveled from the atom to our ear.

The other two types of energy that we are familiar with and use every day are Nuclear energy and Electrical energy. Nuclear energy is basically the power which splits water into oxygen and hydrogen to create fuel for our automobiles. Electrical energy is used for many things such as to heat water, electricity, magnets, electric motors, and even lasers. Basically, all the different types of energy are made from a combination of nuclear fission and electrical ignition.

Now that you understand the basics of how energy is created and used, you need to understand that there are some inherent differences between energy and mass. Mass is not something that is actually being changed; instead it is a measurement of energy. An apple contains more energy than a potato, because an apple is a dissipating mass, while a potato is a non-displicable mass. Basically, nuclear energy is a lot like this, except that instead of changing the atoms it changes the neutrons which are in the nucleus.

One thing that has caused a big stir in the world of energy is the discovery of the Higgs boson. This particle seemed to be the missing piece of the puzzle of how energy is produced and used, but after years of trying it was discovered that it did not have any particles at all. It was also found that it was massless. This made a lot of scientists very excited as they were not able to figure out what was so special about this particle. In fact, one of the greatest hopes that the discovery of the Higgs had was lost when it was found that it was too heavy to be a valid candidate for creating a Higgs boson. This created a new set of standards that had to be met before a particle of this “tinkle” could be detected.

Now that you have the basics of what energy is and how it is produced, you can use this knowledge to help your students explore alternative energy sources, such as solar, wind, and geothermal energy sources. You can teach your students how these sources of energy work and how you verify their results with real-world data. After all, if there is no evidence that the energy source you are using actually works, then there is no real-world data to use to prove or disprove it. Just because something seems to work in theory doesn’t mean it will work in reality, so don’t allow faith alone to keep you from investigating new theories. Your student’s faith is very important and it should be given the same respect as your student’s science education.
