I recently replaced the battery in our 1998 Windstar and did not keep the electrical system connected during the changeover. No issues afterwards.

What type of energy is in a battery?

A battery contains chemical energy.When a load is connected to the battery it converts some of this chemical energy to electrical energy, which it delivers to that load.If it is a rechargeable battery, when a charger is connected to the battery and delivers electrical energy to the battery, the battery converts this electrical energy to chemical energy (and some waste heat energy).

Not very likely even if you connected the battery in reverse. But with electronics it is possible. More than likely if you did this it just blew the fuse.

What generates electrical energy from chemical energy?

A battery stores chemical energy creating a voltage or potential difference that is the potential to do work.When a battery is connected to an electrical device, current flow and is so the conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy.

What is the type of energy that comes out of a battery?

Potential chemical energy is released as electrical energy when the external circuit is connected.

Whenever your MacBook is connected to a power adapter to recharge battery it keeps switching from battery reserve power to recharging why?

If the battery of your MacBook is fully charged whilst you have the power cable plugged in, then the MacBook will switch to battery power instead of wasting electrical power from the plug. Once the battery is run down again, the Macbook will switch back to electrical power from the plug.

Why can't electricity be stored?

In a way it can be. If a capacitor is connected to a battery, it will charge to the battery voltage. Then the capacitor can be discharged into a circuit to do work. But the capacitor doesn't store electrons, it stores an electrical field in the dielectric. If you mean storing the flowing electrons in a conductor, then they can't be stored except in a magnetic containment field such as in a cyclotron. A rechargable battery doesn't store electrons either, it stores energy in a chemical form which is converted to an electrical form when the battery is connected to a circuit.

While driving your 1998 expedition the battery light came on then the radio and gauges stopped working you parked it and the battery is now dead Is this a problem with the alternator or the battery?

once a car starts the bttery is not more necessary to run the car . the generator takes over. in this case i think the regulator failed and the battry since is connected died also. Rocky_B - See my entry here for more things you might want to check: What could be wrong if the battery light stays on and the battery still runs down on a 1996 windstar after installing a new battery and alternator

How do you get the alternator to turn over?

The alternator is run by a belt connected to the engine. When the engine is running the alternator is turning. The alternator is what produces the electrical current that charges the battery & powers everything electrical while the engine is running. the battery is mainly to start the engine.
