Energy is one thing that all living organisms need in life. The sun is the source of all the energy available on Earth. Over the past few weeks, we have been able to cover the different types of energy and the various sources we can get energy from. Do you think you can identify them all? Take this short quiz and find out!

Questions and Answers
• 1.

Gary took his little nerdy cart and put it on a hill. Then he let it go. What kind of energy did he make?

• A.

Chemical Energy

• B.

Potential Energy

• C.

Kinetic Energy

• D.

Monkey Energy

• E.

Mechanical Energy

Correct Answer
C. Kinetic Energy
Explanation
When Gary let his little nerdy cart go down the hill, it started moving and gained speed. This indicates that the cart had kinetic energy, which is the energy possessed by an object due to its motion. As the cart moved, its potential energy (due to its position on the hill) transformed into kinetic energy. Therefore, the correct answer is Kinetic Energy.

• E.

Beasty

Correct Answer
C. It kills birds and is renewable
Explanation
Wind energy has the disadvantage of killing birds, as they can collide with the rotating blades of wind turbines. However, it also has the advantage of being a renewable energy source, meaning it will not deplete natural resources and can be continuously replenished. This makes wind energy environmentally friendly and sustainable in the long run.

The splitting of two monkeys

• E.

An atom

Correct Answer
A. It is the splitting of atoms to make energy
Explanation
The correct answer is "It is the splitting of atoms to make energy." Uranium is a radioactive element that undergoes a process called nuclear fission, where the nucleus of the atom is split into two smaller nuclei, releasing a large amount of energy. This process is used in nuclear power plants to generate electricity.

What is the most polluting type of energy?

• A.

Fossil fuels

• B.

Nuclear

• C.

Wind

• D.

Solar

• E.

Geothermal

Correct Answer
A. Fossil fuels
Explanation
Fossil fuels are the most polluting type of energy because they release large amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases when burned. These emissions contribute to air pollution and climate change. Additionally, the extraction and transportation of fossil fuels can also have negative environmental impacts, such as habitat destruction and water pollution.
