18th March: ENERGY Ενέργεια

Posted Friday March 18, 2016 by Despina K

Welcome to Day 18 of Speak Greek in March:

ENERGY Ενέργεια

The word energy derives from Greek “ἐνέργεια” (energeia), which appears for the first time in the work Nicomachean Ethics of 4th century BC. 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 difficult to give one single comprehensive definition of energy because of its many forms. (Source: Wikipedia)


Προέρχεται από την αρχαία ελληνική λέξη «ἐνέργεια» , η οποία εμφανίζεται για πρώτη φορά στο έργο Ηθικά Νικομάχεια του 4ου π.Χ. αιώνα .
