Asked in Chemistry
When a light bulb is lit does it change into mechanical energy heat energy magnetic energy or chemical energy?
electrical energy is converted into electromagnetic energy (light) and heat energy ...
Asked in Energy, Nuclear Energy
How can nuclear energy be change into mechanical energy?
The heat energy produced by nuclear fission heats water ; passing by it; and brings it to steam that turns turbines to be converted to mechanical energy. ...
What causes some mechanical energy to change to thermal energy?
Normally, friction between moving surfaces causes mechanical energy to convert to thermal energy (heat), as in the brakes of most cars. ...
Asked in Chemical Energy
What is the difference between chemical energy and mechanical energy?
Chemical energy appears as heat, such as burning coal with oxygen. Mechanical energy is the result of a force being generated. Of course heat can be turned into mechanical energy via a heat engine ...
Asked in Science
Smoke is an example of what?
Smoke is an example of mechanical energy and heat energy. This is because the internal motion of atoms is called heat energy and mechanical energy is energy associated with motion. Smoke contains atoms moving which is both an example of heat and mechanical energy. ...
Asked in Energy
How is mechanical energy conserved?
It isn't. Sooner or later some mechanical energy will be wasted and converted to heat. It is also possible to convert other types of energy into mechanical energy. It isn't. Sooner or later some mechanical energy will be wasted and converted to heat. It is also possible to convert other types of energy into mechanical energy. It isn't.

Asked in Science
What is a machine that transforms heat into mechanical energy?
The heat engine burns a fuel in order to create heat. This heat is then transferred in mechanical energy which creates motion. ...
Asked in Energy, Electrical Engineering
How can heat energy be converted to electrical energy?
There are a number of different ways to do this. Most involve converting the heat energy into mechanical energy and then transferring that mechanical energy into an electrical generator. ...
Asked in Biology
What transformation does grass go through in a food chain?
It goes from light energy from the sun to chemical energy to chemical, mechanical, and heat energy and the chemical energy can go to mechanical and heat energy. Then the remaining chemical energy goes to chemical, heat, and mechanical energy again and it keeps on repeating. ...
