This is the energy which is given out when a chemical reaction takes place. This does not just happen in big things like bombs. It is happening every time we eat, use a torch, travel in a car, bus or train.

The most common chemical energy is the energy we get from food. A chemical reaction takes place in your digestive system to turn food into energy.

Batteries contain chemicals. Their chemical energy is changed into electrical energy when they are connected into a circuit. (BE CAREFUL! BATTERIES CONTAIN ACIDS WHICH CAN BURN YOUR SKIN, SO NEVER OPEN UP A BATTERY ).
