It is both types of energy actually (potential and kinetic). The act of chewing involves kinetic energy (moving your jaw, the energy burned processing the food, etc.). When yo…u consume the nutrients in the food, they are converted to potential energy which when used is then converted to kinetic energy when you use the muscles for more chewing, walking, breathing, etc. So, you turn potential energy, stored in glucose in your muscles, into kinetic energy when you chew the food by moving those muscles and digest the nutrients, which stores up more potential energy to be converted into other examples of kinetic energy when you burn that fuel for walking, running, living. Bit of a big circle.
Elastic potential energy. chemical potential energy. gravitational potential energy. electrical potential energy
Food provides for motion and / or temperature increase, but is not itself "hot" nor is it necessarily moving. The energy it represents is stored in chemical bonds, which can b…e reduced / oxidized to lower energy bonds.
yes, yes it is
The food energy that can be utilized by the eater of the food is chemical potential energy. In a food fight, when the food is propelled through the air, it temporarily acqui…res some kinetic energy as well, which has nothing to do with its identity as food, and can't be utilized by eating the food, since it must come to rest before the eating commences. ________ All matter is made up of a combination of kinetic and potential energy. The kinetic energy that comprises your food is all the energy of motion of its molecules. The hotter your food, the faster its molecules are moving and the more kinetic energy they posess. Also, as mentioned above, if you throw your food, it will posess bulk kinetic energy. However, the majority of the energy contained within food is potential energy stored within what you could think of as unhappy chemical bonds. When you eat food, your body invests a little energy to break apart these unhappy bonds and makes new, happier bonds between the food molecules and the oxygen you breathe. When these happy bonds form, a large ammount of energy is released. Your body uses this energy for running around and having food fights.
Potential Energy can be measured in a variety of scenarios. For instance, the potential energy of an object increases with altitude, due to the gravitational force acting on t…he object and the height the object attains. As another example, a spring stores potential energy when it is stretched or compressed beyond its equilibrium position.
Food stores energy in chemical forms, and as such, holds potential energy. The body metabolizes sugar from the food we eat and converts this potential energy into kinetic ener…gy (muscle movement), thermal energy (heat), and electrochemical energy (nerve impulses).
In the C-H (carbon hydrogen) bonds.
Food is chemical energy. Some people have a broad definition of "potential energy" so consider this a form of potential energy.
Glucose is the starting point for cellular respiration. The electrons from glucose flow through the electron transport train which runs proton pumps that phosphorylates ADP to… form ATP. ATP is consumed to do work. Work is equal to negative potential energy.
Yes. Basically, the energy in food is chemical energy, which is a type of potential energy.
Potential energy is the energy that an object has due to its position in a force field or that a system has due to the configuration of its parts hence cannot be a potential e…nergy.
