Example text

Matter is neither created nor destroyed, but it can change form through physical or chemical means. A physical change occurs when we chew a piece of food and it breaks up into smaller pieces. A chemical change occurs when the food is acted on by various chemicals in the body to change its composition. For example, imagine a piece of toast that becomes molecules of fat and glucose to be used by the body for energy. Energy is the ability to do work or to put matter into motion. Energy exists in our body as potential energy and kinetic energy (kih-NET-ik).

Energy exists in our body as potential energy and kinetic energy (kih-NET-ik). Potential energy is energy stored in cells waiting to be released, whereas kinetic energy is work resulting in motion. Lying in bed is an example of potential energy; getting out of bed is an example of kinetic energy.
