The Energy Story

We use energy to do work. Energy lights our cities. Energy powers our vehicles, trains, planes and rockets. Energy warms our homes, cooks our food, plays our music, gives us pictures on television. Energy powers machinery in factories and tractors on a farm. Energy from the sun gives us light during the day. Everything we do is connected to energy in one form or another. Energy is defined as: "the ability to do work. " When we eat, our bodies transform the energy stored in the food into energy to do work.

Cars, planes, light bulbs, boats and machinery also transform energy into work. Work means moving something, lifting something, warming something, lighting something. There are many sources of energy. BBC One - Bang Goes the Theory - Hands-on Science. Succeeding With Science. Science Writer - Help with Lab Reports.
