"Energy cannot be created nor destroyed in any chemical reaction. It can only be changed from one form to another." This is known as the Law of: AEnergy Transfer BEnergy Transformation CConservation of Energy 13. An energy transformation occurs when: Aone form of energy changes to another energy form in the same object Bthe form of energy remains the same type but is moved from one object to another Cmatter transforms to make energy in nuclear reactions 14. An energy transfer occurs when: Aenergy forms matter as in the formation of the universe Bone form of energy changes to another energy form in the same object Cthe form of energy remains the same type but is moved from one object to another 15. When heat from a stove is used to boil water in a saucepan, this is an example of: Aan energy transformation Ban energy transfer Cenergy translocation
