Energy \En"er*gy\, n.; pl. Energies. [F. ['e]nergie, LL. energia, fr. Gr.?, fr. ? active; ? in + ? work. See In, and Work.]

  1. Internal or inherent power; capacity of acting, operating, or producing an effect, whether exerted or not; as, men possessing energies may suffer them to lie inactive.

    The great energies of nature are known to us only by their effects.

  2. Power efficiently and forcibly exerted; vigorous or effectual operation; as, the energy of a magistrate.

  3. Strength of expression; force of utterance; power to impress the mind and arouse the feelings; life; spirit; -- said of speech, language, words, style; as, a style full of energy.

  4. (Physics) Capacity for performing work.

    Note: The kinetic energy of a body is the energy it has in virtue of being in motion. It is measured by one half of the product of the mass of each element of the body multiplied by the square of the velocity of the element, relative to some given body or point. The available kinetic energy of a material system unconnected with any other system is that energy which is due to the motions of the parts of the system relative to its center of mass. The potential energy of a body or system is that energy which is not kinetic; -- energy due to configuration. Kinetic energy is sometimes called actual energy. Kinetic energy is exemplified in the vis viva of moving bodies, in heat, electric currents, etc.; potential energy, in a bent spring, or a body suspended a given distance above the earth and acted on by gravity.

    Accumulation, Conservation, Correlation, & Degradation of energy, etc. (Physics) See under Accumulation, Conservation, Correlation, etc.

    Syn: Force; power; potency; vigor; strength; spirit; efficiency; resolution.

Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary

1590s, "force of expression," from Middle French énergie (16c.), from Late Latin energia, from Greek energeia "activity, action, operation," from energos "active, working," from en "at" (see en- (2)) + ergon "work, that which is wrought; business; action" (see organ).\n

\nUsed by Aristotle with a sense of "actuality, reality, existence" (opposed to "potential") but this was misunderstood in Late Latin and afterward as "force of expression," as the power which calls up realistic mental pictures. Broader meaning of "power" in English is first recorded 1660s. Scientific use is from 1807. Energy crisis first attested 1970.


n. The impetus behind all motion and all activity.

  1. n. (physics) the capacity of a physical system to do work; the units of energy are joules or ergs; "energy can take a wide variety of forms"

  2. an exertion of force; "he plays tennis with great energy" [syn: vigor, vigour]

  3. enterprising or ambitious drive; "Europeans often laugh at American energy" [syn: push, get-up-and-go]

  4. an imaginative lively style (especially style of writing); "his writing conveys great energy" [syn: vigor, vigour, vim]

  5. a healthy capacity for vigorous activity; "jogging works off my excess energy"; "he seemed full of vim and vigor" [syn: vim, vitality]

Energy (psychological)

Mental energy or psychic energy is a concept in some psychological theories or models of a postulated unconscious mental functioning on a level between biology and consciousness.

Energy (esotericism)

The term energy is used by writers and practitioners of various esoteric forms of spirituality and alternative medicine to refer to a variety of phenomena. There is no scientific evidence for the existence of such energy.

Therapies that purport to use, modify, or manipulate unknown energies are thus among the most contentious of all complementary and alternative medicines. Claims related to energy therapies are most often anecdotal, rather than being based on repeatable empirical evidence.


In physics, energy is a property of objects which can be transferred to other objects or converted into different forms. The "ability of a system to perform work" is a common description, but it is misleading because energy is not necessarily available to do work. For instance, in SI units, energy is measured in joules, and one joule is defined "mechanically", being the energy transferred to an object by the mechanical work of moving it a distance of 1 metre against a force of 1 newton. However, there are many other definitions of energy, depending on the context, such as thermal energy, radiant energy, electromagnetic, nuclear, etc., where definitions are derived that are the most convenient.

Common energy forms 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. All of the many forms of energy are convertible to other kinds of energy. In Newtonian physics, there is a universal law of conservation of energy which says that energy can be neither created nor be destroyed; however, it can change from one form to another.

For "closed systems" with no external source or sink of energy, the first law of thermodynamics states that a system's energy is constant unless energy is transferred in or out by mechanical work or heat, and that no energy is lost in transfer. This means that it is impossible to create or destroy energy. While heat can always be fully converted into work in a reversible isothermal expansion of an ideal gas, for cyclic processes of practical interest in heat engines the second law of thermodynamics states that the system doing work always loses some energy as waste heat. This creates a limit to the amount of heat energy that can do work in a cyclic process, a limit called the available energy. Mechanical and other forms of energy can be transformed in the other direction into thermal energy without such limitations. The total energy of a system can be calculated by adding up all forms of energy in the system.

Examples of energy transformation include generating electric energy from heat energy via a steam turbine, or lifting an object against gravity using electrical energy driving a crane motor. Lifting against gravity performs mechanical work on the object and stores gravitational potential energy in the object. If the object falls to the ground, gravity does mechanical work on the object which transforms the potential energy in the gravitational field to the kinetic energy released as heat on impact with the ground. Our Sun transforms nuclear potential energy to other forms of energy; its total mass does not decrease due to that in itself (since it still contains the same total energy even if in different forms), but its mass does decrease when the energy escapes out to its surroundings, largely as radiant energy.

Mass and energy are closely related. According to the theory of mass–energy equivalence, any object that has mass when stationary in a frame of reference (called rest mass) also has an equivalent amount of energy whose form is called rest energy in that frame, and any additional energy acquired by the object above that rest energy will increase an object's mass. For example, with a sensitive enough scale, one could measure an increase in mass after heating an object.

Living organisms require available energy to stay alive, such as the energy humans get from food. Civilisation gets the energy it needs 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.

Energy (Nuša Derenda song)

"Energy" was the Slovenian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, sung by Nuša Derenda in English.

Derenda appeared dressed in black and yellow leather. She was accompanied by two pianists dressed in red and black, who faced each other on stage. At the climax of the song, two male dancers came onto the stage and lifted Nusa Derenda into the air. During the final chorus, the men danced around the stage behind her.

The song performed 17th on the night, following the United Kingdom's Lindsay Dracass with " No Dream Impossible" and preceding Poland's PIASEK with " 2 Long". At the close of voting, it had received 70 points, placing seventh in a field of 23.

It was succeeded as Slovene representative at the 2002 contest by Sestre with " Samo ljubezen".

A Slovene version of the song was performed by Derenda at EMA, the Slovene selection for Eurovision, titled "Ne, ni res" ("No, it's not true").

Usage examples of "energy".

His telepathic ability is almost nil, but he feels the surges of energy.

That was a minor vessel, readily expendable, though formidable enough, a hundred-meter spheroid abristle with guns, missile launchers, energy projectors.

The evening light was abuzz with energy, the sky swarming up into her eyes.

We would need an accelerator to slam matter together with energies some million billion times more powerful than any previously constructed in order to reveal directly that a string is not a point-particle.

I have done extensive experiments using the new Planck energy accelerator and they have revealed that this prediction is precisely confirmed.

Without accelerators capable of producing Planck-scale energies, we will increasingly have to rely on the cosmological accelerator of the big bang, and the relics it has left for us throughout the universe, for our experimental data.

As our most powerful particle accelerators can reach energies only on the order of a thousand times the proton mass, less than a millionth of a billionth of the Planck energy, we are very far from being able to search in the laboratory for any of these new particles predicted by string theory.

In the commons Sir Robert Peel threw himself, acrimoniously, and with all his energy, into this controversy, and used all the exploded arguments of the protectionists with the air of one who for the first time urged them upon the house.

It offers itself for belief, and, if believed, it is acted on unless some other belief outweighs it, or some failure of energy stifles the movement at its birth.

Chi, Yoga, or acupressure will make you more aware of the energy in your body and can serve as a useful supplement to this book.

Shared energies, transformation, diversity-unity, balance, creativity, adaptability and relationship are patterns of life and also can be called the morality of life.

This power is created by successful adaptation to the flows of energy of the cosmos.

He devoted all his great energies to the advancement of the welfare of his countrymen while shrinking from public notice, and sought to lay deep and strong the foundations of government which it was supposed would rise from the ruins of the old.

The other British force which faced the Boers who were advancing through Stormberg was commanded by General Gatacre, a man who bore a high reputation for fearlessness and tireless energy, though he had been criticised, notably during the Soudan campaign, for having called upon his men for undue and unnecessary exertion.

Jesus, Murphy thought, not just a reactor scram but a fucking steam leak--a ruptured main steam line had enough energy to roast everyone in the aft compartment.
