Answer: Option (d) is the correct answer


The energy present within the bonds of the atoms of a compound or molecule is known as chemical energy.

As this energy is present at a position that is, within the bonds hence it is a potential energy. So, whenever there occurs a chemical reaction the stored chemical energy is released.

As potential energy is the energy possessed because of position of a substance. And, kinetic energy is the energy present due to the motion of an object.

Therefore, we can conclude that chemical energy is a form of potential energy.
