Which energy transformation takes place in a match head when you light a match?
Chemical energy is transformed into thermal energy
There are 3 energy transformation: 1.Before the firework is lit it has potential energy stored in the fuse of the firework. 2.From the moment the fuse of a firework is set off, thermal energy and light energy are apparent. 3.When the firework is set off into the air-sound, light, and thermal energy now take place. !@@#$%^&*()
Battery (chemical energy) goes to the wires (electrical energy) which goes to the light bulb (thermal and electromagnetic energy. In the bulb of a traditional flashlight, electric current energy is transformed to heat and then partially to light, when the temperature of the filament in the bulb is sufficient. In an LED type flashlight, little heat is produced and more of the electrical current energy is transformed into light.
energy transfer and energy transformation are different.energy transfer refers to the transfer of energy from one body to another, like energy travelling from one place to another. when we place our hand on a hot iron rod,heat energy is tansfered from the rod to our hand.on the other hand energy transformation means the energy gets converted to another form of energy,much like mechanical energy becoming electrical energy in the case of wind mills.
