Biofuels and Fossil Fuels
Chapter 4 Energy:
(Understand that energy from the sun fuels all life on earth)

Describe the various types of energy and how energy can be stored in different molecules:

(Biofuels and Fossil Fuels)
Biofuels- Energy from plants; fuels produced from plant and animal products
Fossil fuels: (Most vehicles). These fuels (which also include oil, natural gas, and coal) are produced from the decayed remains of plants and animals modified over millions of years by heat, pressure, and bacteria. Biofuels and Fossil Fuels.

Explain the laws of thermodynamics and how they relate to all living organisms:

-The study of the transformation of energy from one type to another, such as from potential energy to kinetic energy, is called thermodynamics.
1st law – Energy can never be created or destroyed; it can only change from one form to another.
2nd Law- Every conversion of energy includes the transformation of some energy into heat; Heat is almost completely useless to living organisms
