    Oil: Fossil Fuels

    Fossil Fuels are made of thousands of years old dead plants and animals

    They are buried under tons of Earth and the energy contained in the plants and animals is converted to oil.

    Oil is then used to make gas for cars and other engines, including ones that create electricity!!!

    Energy Transfer

    A Joule is a way to describe energy. It is named after this guy

    James Prescott Joule

    It takes 4.2 Joules to heat 1 gram of water 1 degree Celsius.

    If 1,000,000 Joules of sunlight hit a field of grass, how is this energy

    Transferred to the ecosystem?
