What will happen when the energy transformations that happen when you strike a match?
Energy in a system may be transformed so that it resides in a different state. Energy in many states may be used to do many varieties of physical work. Energy may be used in n…atural processes or machines, or else to provide some service to society (such as heat,light, or motion). For example, an internal combustion engine converts the potentialchemical energy in gasoline and oxygen into heat, which is then transformed into the propulsive energy (kinetic energythat moves a vehicle. A solar cell converts solar radiation into electrical energy that can then be used to light a bulb or power a computer. Energy transformation can also be explained in terms of potential and kinetic energy. Potential energy, the stored energy of a system, can be converted into kinetic energy, the energy of movement.
The total amount of energy stays the same.
heat is dissipated
When you strike a match, first the energy is chemical because of the chemcial on the tip of the match. Then, it is mechanical because your hand moves. Then it is thermal becau…se the match lights on fire.
Kinetic energy is transformed in Potential elastic and back.
The generators transfer mechanical energy into very useful electrical energy.
chemical heat mechanical physical
chemical mechanical electrical
There is always an increase in the entropy of the universe.
When striking a match, the chemical energy stored in the match-head is transformed into heat and light energy.
None. The Chloroplast is killed.
There is no physical connection between the primary and secondary of a transformer. A transformer is essentially 2 laminated coils of wire interwoven with each other. The magn…etic field created in the primary coil is induced into the secondary coil creating voltage on the secondary side.
Energy is never created nor destroyed.
That is normal for example when energy is transformed from mechanical directly into electrical i a generator, or electrical to mechanical in a motor.
