Even a eraser is made of oil: 

or glass:

3) What is it used for?

it provides energy for (powers) cars, trucks
it’s used to make things

4) Where does it come from?

underground - under the ocean

We get heat energy.

5) What is that energy changed to?

kinetic energy: for transportation or for movement of machines such as in a factory

We did this simulation to relearn what the chemical energy in food was used for in our body. If you have to much chemical energy in your body it will be stored.  If you use a lot of energy on sports, but do not eat enough you will starve to death. So, everyday to be health we have to eat and do some spots. Balance food and sports. 

After taking the simulation we had to take a quiz.Link to the quiz


  1. The video is about cooking oil, not crude oil. The video is off-topic and it's from an unreliable source.

  2. Good, so where does our chemical energy come from?
