Consider the gasoline in your car’s gas tank. What happens to the energy stored in the gasoline when you drive your car? Although the total energy in the universe remains constant, can the energy stored in the gasoline be reused once it is dispersed to the environment?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The change in energy stored in the gasoline on driving the car should be explained. It should be explained if the energy stored in the gasoline can be reused once it is dispersed to the environment.

Concept Introduction:

The total energy of the universe is a constant. It means that the energy cannot be created or destroyed. This principle is known as the “Conservation of energy”. There are principle sources of energy as well as different forms of energy or types of energy. The energy stored in a given system is known as “potential energy” whereas the energy possessed by a moving body is known as “kinetic energy”. However, both natural and human processes energy forms can be converted from one form to another form in order to do useful work. Energy is a measure of the ability to do work on the surroundings or by the surroundings.

Explanation

Gasoline is one of the main refined products from crude oil. Crude oil is formed from animal, tree and other natural debris that are stored beneath the earth for a large number, in fact million number of years. These trees have stored energy gained through solar energy by photosynthesis process...
