By starting a fire, it is getting kinetic energy when the match is swiped. The potential energy it has is due to the amount of fuel the fire has, the more it has the longer it goes The entropy can be seen from the light being given off from the fire, and the crackling sound from the fire.
The ball gains kinetic energy when the ball is shot moving toward the basket. By perfectly balancing the amount of force given to the shot and taking into throught the force of gravity (Potential) the ball is able to swoosh into the hoop. Entropy can be seen when the ball its the backboard and makes a sound. The sound is made and cannot return.
By biking down the hill, I am using the kinetic energy of my muscle movement. While at the same time I am using the potential energy of the gravity to move me down the hill as well. The entropy can be seen from the body heat from my body.
Why is it so hard to pedal?
By stretching the rubber band it is creating a lot of elastic potential energy, Kinetic energy can be seen when the hads are stretching the band converting the energy from the had muscles. The entropy can be seen when the rubber band is released and the elastic energy leaves.
Exhaust and heat from the engine are examples of entropies in this scenario. by driving the car, the car is using kinetic energy through the form of movement. The car also has potential energy since the car i always being forced by gravity.
By climbing the ladder, I am using kinetic energy from my muscles. I then have potential energy of gravity when i fall off. The entropy can be seen from the sound of all my bones breaking after I fall. This sound cannot be recovered nor is it needed.
