Unformatted text preview: stored in it is transferred to the surroundings as thermal energy , sound energy and kinetic energy . Sound energy can be transferred to your eardrum as kinetic energy (movement energy). The battery transfers stored chemical energy as electrical energy . The electrical energy is transferred to the surroundings by the lamp as light energy and thermal energy (heat energy). Energy transfer The Law of Conservation of Energy Energy is always conserved, it is never "lost" or "wasted“. Some energy transfers are useful and some are not. Sankey diagrams...
