TYPES OF ENERGY STORE - examples explained

(a) Examples of chemical energy stores

Doc Brown's GCSE 9-1 Physics Revision Notes

Suitable for GCSE/IGCSE Physics/Science courses or their equivalent

 This page will help you answer questions such as ...

What is a chemical energy store?

Give some examples of chemical energy stores.

 Examples of chemical energy stores are explained
 



Chemical energy and chemical energy stores

  • Chemical energy is 'stored' or 'bound up' in chemical elements/compounds by virtue of their chemical structure.

  • A chemical energy store consists of chemicals that release energy when they react e.g.

    • burning hydrocarbon fuels like petrol from crude oil converts stored chemical energy into heat energy,

    • metabolising foods like fats and carbohydrates releases energy to power living cells in any organism,

    • discharging a charged car battery containing sulfuric acid solution and lead electrodes coverts chemical energy to electrical energy.

  • zinc-carbon batterySince chemical energy is a form of stored energy e.g. a battery or tank of fuel, it does nothing until it is released and converted into another form of energy - usually electrical energy or heat energy.

    • All these conversions involve transferring energy from type of energy store to another type of energy store.

  • INDEX of energy changes-transfers in chemical reactions notes (gcse chemistry notes)
