    • C. 

      Height

    • D. 

      Power

  • 14. 
    [Blank] Potential Energy is the energy associated with objects that can be compressed or stretched.
  • 15. 
    Elastic potential energy: an object has a different type of potential energy due to its [Blank].
  • 16. 
    The form of energy associated with the motion, position or shape of an object is called [Blank] energy.
  • 17. 
    An object's mechanical energy is a combination of its [Blank] energy and kinetic energy.
  • 18. 
    ME = PE + KE
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 19. 
    A change of energy from one form to another is called an energy [Blank].
  • 20. 
    When you rub your hands together on a cold day, you use friction to transform mechanical energy (KE + PE) into [Blank] energy.
  • 21. 
    The law of [Blank] of energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed from one form to another.
  • 22. 
    The total amount of energy before and after any transformation maybe different.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 23. 
    [Blank] energy is the total kinetic and potential energy of the particles in an object. It is also sometimes known as heat energy, because when the particles in an object move rapidly, you can feel it as heat.
  • 24. 
    An object's thermal energy helps to determine its [Blank] state.
  • 25. 
    A substance can change from one physical state to another when its thermal energy changes. This can be done by freezing, melting, boiling, etc.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False
