Kinetic Energy Quizzes

Kinetic energy is the energy of things in motion – from roller coasters shrieking around sharp corners at top speed, to an exhausted cyclist pedaling his bicycle up the steepest hill in town, to a baseball sailing over the back fence for a home run, and even toward chemical reactions and the movement of the planets in their orbits.

This part of physics helps to describe why objects in motion behave the way they do and how energy can be transferred from one body to another (think of the bat that sent that home-run ball flying out of sight, for example). Take our quiz to learn more about kinetic energy (if you can sit still long enough) and make sure to knock your next physics exam out of the park!
