Examples of transforming energy below.

Goes from electric-thermal-mechanical-sound (the sound from when the toast pops up)

Electric-thermal-light-radiant enegy

Potential-Kinetic

Chemical from the match to light/radiant

Energy transfers below: NOTICE+ They are all mechanical

The energy behind the horns of the ram is transferred to the dog then to the ground as he lands

The energy of Chuck Norris's punch goes straight to the person being punched

The energy of the rugby tackler goes to the runner while the tackler slows and his speed increases

The energy found in the legs of the bull is transferred directly to the head of the bullfighter.

Energy located in the spin of Shammu went directly to the person sending her off the platform
