If energy is not created or destroyed what happens to the light and heat of the flashlight?

energy cannot be created. Instead it changes forms of energy. the energy of a battery is chemical energy. the chemical energy from the battery changes to to electric energy when you turn it on. Then it changes again into heat and light energy. That energy will go on and change into some other kind of energy and so on forever.
