# Energy Transformation Trivia: MCQ Quiz!

23 Questions | Total Attempts: 69  Settings  Can you explain energy transformation? Energy transformation is also identified as energy conversion. It is the process of shifting energy to one form or another. The energy in several of its forms may be utilized in natural processes or to offer something to people, such as heating, refrigeration, lighting, or mechanical work to operate machines.

If an object has potential energy, it means that at some point in the past, that object had work performed on it that resulted in energy ____________ .
• 17.
One example of performing work on an object to give it potential energy is __________ a watch.  As it is being tightened, the spring is gaining potential energy.
• 18.
