In order for Kinetic energy to be converted into electrical energy, the kinetic energy usually drives the rotation or oscillation of a magnet in close proximity to coiled wire.

A bar magnet can be moved up and down through the centre of a looped coil of wires. As the wire comes into contact with the magnetic field of the magnet, a current is induced in the wire. (see Left hand rule)

Likewise, a collection of magnets attached to a large prop shaft when rotated will induce a current in a large array of coiled wires which surround but do not touch the circled array of magnets.

Kinetic energy is essentially converted into electrical energy in most production of electricity. Oil, Gas, Coal or Nuclear energy are all used to heat water; the steam of which turns turbines and therefore the prop shaft. (Chemical energy-kinetic energy-electrical energy)

# Is chemical energy converted to kinetic energy?

Yes, it can be. An example is a battery to a motor.

Generator

# How do you convert kinetic energy into sound energy?

through a turbine from the noise of the water.or when a ball hits a tree it had kinetic energy but the impact on the force caused sound and lost some of the kinetic energy to

# What is a Device that converts kinetic energy into electrical energy?

A Generator AC and DC generators(also called dynamos). Whenever magnetic flux through a closed wire loop changes current flows in it. We use mechanical energy to produce cha

# How do electric generators convert kinetic energy into electrical energy?

    They revolve sets of coils of wire across a strong magnetic field, and this induces electrical currents in the coils.   NB The current will only flow if the t

# What converts kinetic energy into heat energy?

Friction, generally. If a car has kinetic energy it is moving, but it will not keep moving forever. it slows down because of friction, and the kinetic energy is dissipated as

# What device converts kinetic energy into electrical energy?

A generator in a power plant converts rotating kinetic energy into electrical energy. So it is a generator

# Kinetic energy converting into sound energy?

  Some Kinetic Energy will convert into sound energy when it strikes something, such as a baseball striking a tree. It had kinetic energy, but the noise made by the impact

# How do you convert electica energy to kinetic energy?

Think about a battery-powered motor. (Granted, the energy is originally chemical potential, but it is transferred to electrical potential when it comes out of the battery.)

# How do you convert kinetic energy into potential energy?

  If you fired a bullet vertically upward, it would have kinetic energy at first, when it gets to the top of its travel this would all have been converted to potential ene

# How do you convert kinetic energy into thermal energy?

  I suppose you could convert kinetic energy into thermal energy via friction, i.e. a moving object could move along another object, causing friction, which would release

# Is turbine a device that converts kinetic energy into electrical energy?

Strictly speaking, a turbine turns a flow or a jet of something into a rotary motion. Can be wind, water or steam. But that rotary motion can then be used to spin a generator/
