Explanation:
A: I blow the dominoes and that makes the ball roll (Wind energy to kinetic)
B: The ball rolls down the hill (kinetic to potential)
C: The ball hits the car with the candle on it (potential to kinetic)
D: The car rolls under the string and stops (kinetic to potential)
E: The flame burns the string (potential to thermal)
F: The car is let go (thermal to kinetic)
G: The cart rolls down the track (kinetic to chemical potential)
H: The scissors puncture the can (chemical potential to kinetic)

Explanation:
A: We released the car with our hand down the ramp. (potential to kinetic)
B: The car hit the dominoes. (potential to kinetic)
C: The dominoes hit the bouncy ball. (potential to kinetic)
D: The bouncy ball rolled down the ramp to hit the hot wheel. (potential to kinetic)
E: The hot wheel rolled down the ramp and hit the metal ball. (potential to kinetic)
F: The metal ball went down the ramp and hit the flashlight. (potential to kinetic)
G: The flashlight slid and knocked the can off the desk. (potential to kinetic)
H: The soda went through the funnel into the cup. (potential to kinetic)

Explanation
A- Turn on the fan (electrical to wind energy)
B- Wind knocks over Styrofoam (wind to potential)
C- Styrofoam knocks over dominoes (potential to kinetic)
D- Dominoes hit the car (kinetic to mechanical)
E- Car hits empty plastic bottle (mechanical to potential)
F- Bottle hits the ball (potential to kinetic)
G- Ball rolls down ramp (potential to kinetic)
H- Ball hits 3 pound weight (kinetic to potential)
I-Weight swings and the force when it falls pops open the coke can ( can has a string attached to can, the string is also attached to the weight) ( potential to kinetic)
J- Coke pours into funnel (potential to kinetic)
K-From the funnel the liquid pours into two metal tubes straight into a plastic cup (potential to kinetic)
