What are 3 examples of thermal energy?
Radiation energy (energy transmitted through space), regular heat (something is hot), and latent heat (something has absorbed heat, e.g. by a chemical reaction).
List of examples of energy conversions 1. Electric Generator (Mechanical Energy into Electrical Energy) 2. Electric Motor (Electrical Energy into Mechanical Energy) 3. Steam Engine (Thermal Energy into Mechanical Energy) 4. Diesel or Petrol Engine (Chemical Energy into Mechanical Energy) 5. Stove (Chemical Energy into Thermal Energy) 6. Electric Bulb (Electrical Energy into Thermal and Light Energy) 7. Cellular Respiration (Chemical Energy into Thermal and Mechanical Energy)
transformation energy means: Energy transformation is the process of changing energy from one form to another. Here our some examples: 1. Chemical energy TO electrical energy TO Thermal = burning a log at a campsite! 2. electrical energy TO Mechanical energy TO Thermal energy = making toast with toaster!
Chemical potential energy are commonly found in batteries. So anything that uses batteries to produce heat can be examples. Here are some examples: Netbooks/Laptops (when turned on and not charging) Handphones. Another source of chemical potential energy is food. We eat food to keep our body warm because the chemical potential energy is converted into thermal energy by our body.
