• conduction.
• convection.

## What are the 4 methods of energy transfer?

There are 4 ways energy can be transferred;

• Mechanically – By the action of a force.
• Electrically – By an electrical current.
• By radiation – By Light waves or Sound waves.
• By heating – By conduction, convection or radiation.

## What are examples of energy transfer?

Energy transfers

• A swinging pirate ship ride at a theme park. Kinetic energy is transferred into gravitational potential energy.
• A boat being accelerated by the force of the engine. The boat pushes through the water as chemical energy is transferred into kinetic energy.
• Bringing water to the boil in an electric kettle.

## What is energy transfer?

energy transfer

The conversion of one form of energy into another, or the movement of energy from one place to another.

## What are the 4 energy Pathways physics?

Pathways for transferring energy

There are four main pathways: mechanical work – a force moving an object through a distance. electrical work – charges moving due to a potential difference. radiation – energy transferred as a wave, eg light and infrared – the Sun emits light radiation and infrared radiation.
