Juan starts a campfire using wood and then sets a pot of water over the fire. Describe the major energy changes that take place in the wood, the pot, and the water.

This is a good thinking exercise. I will be happy to critique your thinking.

Hello this is my homework!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not going to do it for you. I will be happy to critique and check it for you, and offer suggestions.

I mostly guess on my answers all i know that is going to thermal energy that's it.

The idea here is that you need to learn to THINK and not GUESS. Think about the wood. How does it burn? Does it use oxygen? How? What are the products formed? Is the fire hot? What does it do to the pot and the water? Etc Etc Etc.

Ok i will try that.Thank you

What is mechanical energy?
