Quiz: Test Your Knowledge On Energy!

A simple definition of the energy- the capacity to do work, move an object by some application of force, or heating an object. Energy is a quantitative property that can be transferred from objects to objects, can take forms but cannot be created or destroyed. This quiz will ask you some essential points of the topic, let's see how well do you know.
