  • Energy can only ever be converted from one form to another
  • TV converts electrical to light and sound
  • Hairdryer from electrical to kinetic to heat
  • Lifts from electrical to kinetic and gravitational potential
  • Batteries from electrical to chemical (storage)
  • X-ray from electrical to x-ray
  • Microwave from electrical to microwave
