What energy transformations occur in a hairdryer?
Motor action occurs when electromagnetic energy (electricity) is converted into mechanical energy (rotation) by the fan motor. The fan then turns and air moves through the device. Electromagnetic energy (that same electricity) is also converted into thermal energy in the heating element, and from there the heat is transferred into the air as it passes by.

chemical - electrical - light - heat
A television receiver uses electrical energy, either from batteries or from the electrical outlet it's plugged into, and converts that energy into a tiny bit of light energy, …a moderate amount of sound energy, and a considerable amount of heat energy.
You can transform thermal energy to electrical energy in a power plant, chemical energy to mechanical energy in an internal combustion engine, or nuclear energy into thermal e…nergy in a nuclear reactor. These are just three examples.
uhmm... ELECTRICAL ENERGY- MECHANICAL ENERGY- SOUND ENERGY-HEAT ENERGY :)
Potential Energy is converted to Kinetic Energy when fuel is burned in order to move the car.

Electrical energy is transformed into heat energy by the coils inside and kinetic energy by the fan inside.
Electrical energy is transformed into heat energy. But that heat has to passed to the hair. So a fan operates in which electrical energy is changed into mechanical energy.
There are 2- electrical energy is transformed into mechanical energy in the motor that runs the blower- and it is transformed into heat in the heating elements.
electrical energy to mechanical energy!
It transform electricity into thermal energy by the resistance load.
