    Both electrical and heat energy involve kinetic energy. Comment on the similarities and differences of these two types of energy.

    Any help would be great !

    Electrical energy occurs when electricity creates motion, light or heat whilst heat energy is energy that is pushed into motion by heat. Electricity is also kinetic energy because electricity involves electrons moving in conductors which means that both electrical and heat energy are effected by kinetic energy. Electrical energy can be found in the electric coils on a stove whereas heat energy can be observed as heat in a fireplace.
