    When it is heated by an external source to the point that it is giving off flammable gases. These gases could then ignite and rapid oxidation would become self sustaining (on fire) releasing thermal energy until it runs out of fuel (burns out).

    For the first one, it's the chemical reactions in your body that provide the energy for you to move. Chemical energy is being converted into Mechanical energy. For the second one, when the apple is still in the tree its beginning velocity is zero, making its kinetic energy equal to zero and its potential energy is a maximum. As the apple falls, the potential energy is converted to kinetic energy until just before it hits the ground, where its potential energy is zero and its kinetic energy is a maximum. Chemical ---> Mechanical Zero.
