chemical energy

Energy liberated by a chemical reaction or absorbed in the formation of a chemical compound. Each bond within a chemical compound involves different amounts of energy. When one of these bonds breaks, a chemical reaction occurs and chemical energy is used. The bond is released and is either reused in forming new bonds with other atoms or enters the surrounding atmosphere as heat.
