Chemical energy is the kinetic and potential energy of electrons inside atoms and molecules. The exchange of mechanical and thermal energy with chemical plays a critical role in the biology of life. We apply the tools we have developed in our study of mechanical energy to help build an understanding of some of the basic concepts of chemical energy.
