Internal Energy

Internal energy, U, is the energy associated with the random, disordered motion of molecules.

A room temperature glass of water sitting on a table may seem to have no energy.

But if studied at the microscopic level you would find a whole lot of high-speed molecules traveling at hundreds of meters per second!
