Asked in Chemistry
How do you convert chemical to mechanical?
Coal is a chemical compound which contains chemical energy. To convert coal into mechanical energy, you use it (burn it) to produce heat and use the heat to boil water, the steam from which will drive a steam engine which delivers mechanical energy. ...

Means of transport which changes chemical energy into kinetic energy?
Many engines do this conversion. For example, the engines commonly found in cars convert the chemical energy first to heat (by burning it), then convert part of this heat into movement (kinetic energy). ...
Asked in Energy
What device transforms stored chemical energy into heat energy?
A few devices that convert stored chemical energy into heat energy include: -- matches -- batteries -- candles -- cement mixers ...
What kind of energy conversions taking place in lighting a candle?
When you light a matchstick, you convert the chemical energy in the matchstick to heat energy. This matchstick when brought in contact with the candle converts the chemical energy in the candle to heat and light energy. Chemical energy turns to light and heat. ...

What is an example of a change from chemical energy to electrical energy that give heat and light?
Well actually a dry cell can convert Chemical energy to electrical energy, it gives heat, just no light... :) ...
Asked in Physics
Animals take in chemical energy from plants and other animals and convert it to what?
Animals convert chemical energy from their food to several forms of energy: kinetic energy (for motion) and thermal energy (for heat). They also store some of this energy still in the form of chemical energy. ...
Asked in Chemistry, Fossil Fuels, Chemical Energy
When fuels are burnt the chemical energy changes to what?
When fuels are burnt first of all chemical energy changes to heat energy and sometimes to light energy as well. then we convert the heat energy into other usable forms of energy. For example, coal is burnt in thermal power stations to produce heat which is then converted to electricity. Vehicles convert chemical energy of fuels to heat and then use this heat to do mechanical work. The process of conversion is complex in both cases. ...

How does a dynamite explosion convert chemical energy to mechanical energy?
The chemical reaction causes heat, which causes the material to expand and result in an explosion. ...
Asked in Pontiac Montana, Physics
How is heat produced?
Heat is produced when energy is converted, in one of many ways, from one form to another. Electric heaters convert electricity to heat; rubbing your hands together (friction) converts kinetic energy to heat, fire (exothermic reactions) convert chemical energy to heat, and so on. ...
What is the process by which plants convert energy of sunlight into chemical energy?
The process by which plants convert energy of sunlight into chemical energy is " Photosynthesis " ...
Asked in Chemistry, Energy, Chemical Energy
How do you change chemical energy to thermal energy?
Chemical energy is transfered to thermal energy whenever a chemical bond is broken, and the chemical energy stored in the bond is released as/converted into heat. Likewise, you can also convert a fraction of a species' chemical energy to thermal energy via an exothermic reaction involving that species. ...
