Play our interesting quiz about heat and how it is transferred and how energy is converted from one form to another. The student will have to know the three ways heat is transferred, the different forms of energy, and how it can be converted.

• 1.

### What tipe of enegry is heat?

• A.

Nuclear

• B.

Electrical

• C.

Thermal

• D.

Electromagnetic

• E.

Mecanical

C. Thermal
Explanation
Heat is a form of energy that is transferred between objects or systems due to temperature differences. It is the energy associated with the motion of particles within a substance. Thermal energy is the correct answer because heat is specifically related to the transfer of thermal energy.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### _______is the transfer of heat from one object to another due to direct contact?

Explanation
The transfer of heat from one object to another due to direct contact is called conduction. Conduction occurs when two objects at different temperatures come into direct contact with each other, causing the heat to transfer from the hotter object to the cooler one. Convection, on the other hand, involves the transfer of heat through the movement of fluids or gases. Radiation is the transfer of heat through electromagnetic waves, such as from the sun to the Earth.

### These waves can travel different materials and can travel in a vacuum?

• A.

Sound

• B.

Thermal

• C.

Electrical

• D.

Electromagnetic

• E.

Chemical

D. Electromagnetic
Explanation
Electromagnetic waves can travel through different materials and also in a vacuum. Unlike sound waves, which require a medium to travel through, electromagnetic waves do not require a medium and can propagate through empty space. This is because electromagnetic waves are composed of oscillating electric and magnetic fields, which can self-sustain and propagate through the electromagnetic field. Thermal, electrical, and chemical waves are not capable of traveling through a vacuum.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### These waves travel through many different materials, but cannot travel in a vacuum?

• A.

Thermal

• B.

Mechanical

• C.

Electrical

• D.

Chemical

• E.

Sound

E. Sound
Explanation
Sound waves require a medium to travel through, such as air, water, or solids. They cannot travel in a vacuum because there are no particles to vibrate and transmit the sound energy. Therefore, sound waves are unable to travel in a vacuum.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### This energy can be realesed by breaking these ______ bonds

chemical, mechanical
Explanation
Chemical bonds store energy in molecules, and breaking these bonds releases that energy. Mechanical bonds, on the other hand, refer to the forces that hold materials together at a macroscopic level, such as the bonds between atoms in a solid. While mechanical bonds can store energy, they are not typically associated with the release of energy. Therefore, the correct answer is chemical bonds, as breaking them can release energy.
