  • Shameena Kunnel India Course Module: Module 1: The Flow of Energy and Cycling of Matter Course Topic: Conservation of Energy and Energy Units Comment: Conservation of Energy Though energy can be converted from one form to another, energy cannot be created or destroyed. This principle is called the "law of conservation of energy." For example, in a motorcycle, the chemical potential energy of the fuel changes to kinetic energy. In a radio, electricity is converted into kinetic energy and wave energy (sound). 2013-05-30 07:05:55
