On the fourth of July, Joseph and his family hopped in their car to go to the town fair. The chemical energy in the gas transformed into thermal energy, which then changed to mechanical kinetic energy to accelerate the car.
When Joseph and his family arrived at the fair, they went on a roller coaster. The energy in the roller coaster goes back and forth between stored mechanical energy and mechanical kinetic energy. The mechanical energy also changes into thermal energy.
After riding the roller coaster Joseph went to go eat french fries. He gained more mechanical kinetic energy from the chemical energy in his food.
An hour later Joseph began to get bored with fair so he plugged in his headphones into his phone to listen to music. This energy transfer is mechanical kinetic to electrical to sound.
At the end of the fair Joseph and his family watched the fireworks. In the fireworks chemical energy is transferred to thermal, light, and sound energy.
