Which of the following best describes the energy changes which take place when a steam engine drives a generator which lights a lamp?
A. heat —-> Light—-> Sound —-> Kinetic
B. Kinetic —-> Light —-> Heat —-> Electricity
C. heat —-> Kinetic —-> Electricity —-> Heat and Light
D. electricity —-> Kinetic —-> Heat —-> Light

Correct Option: Answer is C
The steam released powers an engine called a turbine, transforming heat energy from burning coal into mechanical energy, particularly kinetic energy that spins the turbine engine. The kinetic energy of the spinning turbine does work in a generator, a machine that turns this work into electric energy. The lamp uses this electricity to generate heat and light.
