It is often stated that many forms of transport transform chemical energy into kinetic energy. Explain why a cyclist traveling at constant speed is not making this transformation. Explain what transformations of energy are taking place.
The Attempt at a Solution
1. constant speed => no acceleration => no resultant force => no work done
2. constant speed => no change in kinetic energy.
i came up with two answers for the first part. i don't know which one of them i should choose.
for the second part, i think that the transformation involved is that of something being transformed into heat due to friction. but i don't know what is this 'something'.
