  1. this is the energy of moving electrons.  Most devices in your home run on this type of energy
    electrical energy
  2. this is the energy of a compound that changes as its atoms are rearranged to form a new compound. It is a from of potential energy
    chemical energy
  3. this refers to Newton's 3rd law of motion that states that if a force is exerted, another force occurs that is equal in size and opposite direction
  4. this refers to any characteristic of matter. This term is science, whereas the term trait is used in life science
