# Ultimate Quiz On Energy: Exam!

25 Questions | Total Attempts: 246  Settings  What is energy? Simply put, energy is the capability to do physical work. Energy can exist in potential, thermal, electrical, chemical, kinetic, and nuclear forms. You can’t see energy with your eyes, but we all know that it is there. It comes out in the form of motion. In this quiz, you must know the difference between the types of energies and the variables that exist between them. You absolutely need to take this quiz.
