It is difficult to make sense of energy. We all know that our computer uses electricity and we shouldn’t leave the lights on in a room if we aren’t there because it’s a waste of electricity, but it is difficult to really understand what ENERGY IS. Can you say you’ve ever seen energy? Yeha maybe during a thunderstorm looking at the lightings you can have an idea of the power of energy.
But then how much electricity uses my computer compared to the kettle I use to prepare my tea? I found some illustrations can really help me. Following you’ll have some examples.
There are many others and I will put updates here so that we can all enjoy them and try to really understand what energy means.
As always if you found something that helped you understanding the connection between your actions and energy share them with us, be it a picture, an article, or a scientific paper!
