Sound Energy

Energy: Introduction

In physics, energy is the quantitative property that must be transferred to an object in order to perform work on, or to heat, the object. Common forms of energy include the kinetic energy of a moving object, the potential energy stored by an object's position in a force field (gravitational, electric or magnetic), the elastic energy stored by stretching solid objects, the chemical energy released when a fuel burns, the radiant energy carried by light, and the thermal energy due to an object's temperature.

Living organisms require energy to stay alive, such as the energy humans get from food. Human civilization requires energy to function, which it gets from energy resources such as fossil fuels, nuclear fuel, or renewable energy. The processes of Earth's climate and ecosystem are driven by the radiant energy Earth receives from the sun and the geothermal energy contained within the earth.

Sound Energy

In physics, sound energy is a form of energy that can be heard by humans. Sound is a mechanical wave and as such consists physically in oscillatory elastic compression and in the oscillatory displacement of a fluid. Therefore, the medium acts as storage for both potential and kinetic energy.
