Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Energy is the ability to do work. There are many different types of energy such as; elastic, radiant, kinetic, chemical, nuclear,etc.We can calculate energy efficiency by using the formula -> useful/consumed x 100. The law of conservation of energy states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, only transferred or transformed. Another important note is the difference between heat and temperature. Heat is the speed and mass of particles, while temperature refers only to the speed of articles.You will now answer 8 questions on energy before you can move on to the next topic.Good luck! :)
  • 2. 
    Which is correct formula for energy efficiency? 
    • A. 

      Energy efficiency = amount of useful energy/ amount of energy consumed x100

    • B. 

      Energy efficiency = amount of energy consumed/ amount of useful energy x100

    • C. 

      Energy efficiency = amount of useful energy/ amount of energy consumed x10

    • D. 

      Energy efficiency = amount of energy consumed/ amount of useful energy x10

  • 3.

    The law of conservation of energy states that:
    • A. 

      Energy can be created but not destroyed.

    • B. 

      Energy can be created and destroyed.

    • C.

  • 8. 
    An electric hoist supplies 5000 J of energy when it lifts a load. It has the efficiency of 60%, how much useful work is done on the load?*Hint: use the formula for energy efficiency.
  • 9. 
    Electricity is the flow of moving electrons. Static electricity describes all the phenomena related to electrical charges at rest. Contrary to this, dynamic electricity refers to all the phenomena related to electrical charges in motion. Matter can be charged one of three ways: friction, conduction or induction. It is also important to know that protons are positive, neutrons are neutral and that electrons are negative.You will now answer 8 questions on electricity before you can move on to the next topic.Good luck! :)

    Magnetism describes all the phenomena caused by magnets. In order for an object to be considered a magnet it must contain iron, cobalt or nickel, all of its domains must be aligned and it must have a north and south pole. The north and south poles are the strongest parts of a magnet. A rule to remember is that opposites attract and likes repel. A ferromagnetic substance has the potential to become a magnet, we can also demagnetize objects. There are 2 types of magnets, temporary and permanent. Another important rule to remember when dealing with the magnetic field is the right hand rule.This is the last section, you will now answer 8 questions on magnetism, then proceed to the results.Good Luck! :)
