Hi, you are right. After eating food, chewing cuts food into small pieces and it reaches stomach through esophagus. In stomach so many digestive juices are present they crushes food again into very small pieces. And then to small intestine, here furthur digestion will occur and also absorption takes place. Then reaches large intestine here absorption and stool formation will takes place. And finally excretion. In large intestine it will be like almost stool.
