Re: Conservation of energy

The form would be heat energy. The mechanism is the mechanical energy of the stirring by the spring when/as it breaks(down).

Note that I'm not going into the energy involved in the chemical break-down of the spring, which while probably exothermic, might be endothermic.

I hope I didn't just help a 14 year old with simple Physics homework ...
