Batteries convert electrochemical reactions into electrical potential.

Plants use their own specialized chemical reactions to produce food from nutrients and sunlight.

Buildings use various chemical reactions and oxidations for heating, cooling and operation.

Cars use petrochemical energy for motion, lighting and entertainment and to re-charge their starting batteries.

Cooks use many different chemical reactions to produce good things to eat.

Chemistry students explore chemical potential in reactants and its resulting products after the reaction or oxidation has occurred.
