  • The Sun uses electromagnetic energy and produces thermal energy. Specifically radiation. Which shoots onto the Earth
  • Sunlight is absorbed into the corn and then used to create photosynthesis. A type of food for the plants which is chemical energy.
  • The corn grows. This then allows it to be turned into bio-fuels.
  • Burn the corn to use its corn oil for bio-fuel. This is thermal, specifically conduction.
  • After filling up the car with bio-fuel, when you push the pedal(mechanical energy) you burn some oil. This transfers the fuel from chemical to thermal energy. The thermal energy used is
  • This then causes the car to accelerate. This is mechanical energy as it is using friction and force to move the car.
