The term was initially specifically applicable to certain materials capable of releasing chemical energy, but has since been applicable to other forms of heat energy such as nuclear power. The heat energy produced by combustible reactions is transformed through a heat engine into mechanical energy. Many time the heat itself is respected for processes of heating, cooking, or manufacturing, as well as the illumination that comes with combustion. Fuels are also used in organism cells as part of a mechanism known as cellular respiration, where organic compounds are oxidized to release the energy used. Hydrocarbons and associated oxygen-containing molecules are by far the most common source of fuel used by humans, but other substances are also used, including radioactive metals.
