** How Is Energy Measured? **

7 of 8 in Series: The Essentials of Chemistry Basics

You can measure kinetic energy (energy of motion) with a thermometer.
Measuring potential (stored) energy can be a difficult task. The potential
energy of a ball stuck up in a tree is related to the mass of the ball and
its height above the ground. The potential energy contained in chemical
bonds is related to the type of bond and the number of bonds that can
potentially break.

*Temperature and temperature scales*

When you measure the air temperature in your backyard, you’re really
measuring the average kinetic energy of the gas particles in your backyard
