This phenomenon is called energy conversion. In this process of converting chemical energy into thermal energy, the energy stored in the chemical bond (hydrocarbon molecules in natural gas) is released, making the surrounding molecules move faster, thereby increasing the substance’s thermal point. When natural gas is burned, chemical energy releases heat the water and turn it into steam. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
