Why do people drink that morning coffee everyday before going to work? Why do we need to eat? Why do our dogs need to be walked multiple times per day? All of these things are related to the concept of energy – the get-up-and-go our bodies need in order to function in numerous ways. Energy can come in many different forms and we’re going to be testing your knowledge on them all in this quiz!

• 1.

### Energy comes in all different forms.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Energy can exist in various forms such as kinetic energy, potential energy, thermal energy, electrical energy, and so on. These different forms of energy can be converted from one form to another. Therefore, it is correct to say that energy comes in all different forms.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### Energy is not in everything.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
This statement is false because energy is present in everything. Energy is a fundamental property of matter and is found in various forms such as kinetic energy, potential energy, thermal energy, and so on. It is a key component of all physical systems and processes. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### Energy is constantly changing from one form to another:

• A.

Law of energy

• B.

Energy conservation

• C.

Refraction

• D.

Reflection

B. Energy conservation
Explanation
Energy conservation is the correct answer because it refers to the principle that energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can only be converted from one form to another. This means that energy is constantly changing from one form to another, such as from potential energy to kinetic energy, or from thermal energy to mechanical energy. The concept of energy conservation is a fundamental principle in physics and is supported by scientific evidence and observations.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### Energy that is stored or the energy of position.

• A.

Kinetic

• B.

Potential

B. Potential
Explanation
Potential energy refers to the energy that an object possesses due to its position or condition. It is the stored energy that can be converted into other forms of energy, such as kinetic energy, when the object is in motion. In this context, the correct answer is potential energy because it matches the given explanation of "energy that is stored or the energy of position."

Rate this question:

• 5.

### The energy of motion.

• A.

Kinetic

• B.

Potential

A. Kinetic
Explanation
The given answer "kinetic" is correct because kinetic energy refers to the energy possessed by an object due to its motion. It is the energy that an object possesses when it is in motion and is directly related to the object's mass and velocity. Therefore, the energy of motion is known as kinetic energy.

• 6.

### We only have on light source.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement "We only have one light source" is false. This implies that there is more than one light source available.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object or travels from on median to another.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object or changes its medium. This is known as the principle of rectilinear propagation of light. When light passes through a homogeneous medium, such as air or vacuum, it travels in a straight line. However, when it encounters an object or changes its medium, it can be reflected, refracted, or absorbed, causing it to change direction. Therefore, the statement that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object or travels from one medium to another is true.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### What is the ability to do work?

• A.

Light

• B.

Gravity

• C.

Energy conservation

• D.

Energy

D. Energy
Explanation
Energy is the ability to do work. It is the capacity of a system to perform tasks or exert force on an object to cause a displacement. Energy can exist in various forms such as kinetic, potential, thermal, chemical, electrical, and so on. It is a fundamental concept in physics and is essential for the functioning of all physical processes in the universe.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### How many forms of energy are there?

• A.

3

• B.

8

• C.

2

• D.

9

D. 9
Explanation
There are many forms of energy, but they can generally be categorized into two main types: potential energy and kinetic energy. Within these categories, there are various forms of energy. Some common forms include:

Mechanical energy
Thermal (heat) energy
Chemical energy
Electrical energy
Nuclear energy
Sound energy
Gravitational potential energy
Elastic potential energy

These are just a few examples, and there are others as well.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Matter can be changed into what?

• A.

Energy

• B.

Gravity

• C.

Motion

• D.

Light

A. Energy
Explanation
Matter can be changed into energy through processes such as nuclear reactions or chemical reactions. This conversion is based on Einstein's famous equation E=mc^2, which states that mass can be converted into energy. This is observed in various phenomena, such as the release of energy in the form of heat and light during combustion reactions or the conversion of mass into energy in nuclear power plants. Therefore, energy is a valid answer for the question.

• 11.

### Energy can be changed into what?

• A.

Light

• B.

Motion

• C.

Gravity

• D.

Matter

D. Matter
Explanation
Energy can be changed into matter through the process of conversion. This is demonstrated by Einstein's famous equation E=mc^2, which states that energy and mass are interchangeable. Matter can be created from energy, such as in nuclear reactions where energy is released and converted into matter. This conversion is also observed in particle accelerators, where high-energy collisions can create new particles from the energy involved. Therefore, matter is a valid answer as energy can indeed be transformed into it.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### What are the two categories that forms if energy can be placed into?

• A.

Potential and Light

• B.

Light and Kinetic

• C.

Potential and Kinetic

• D.

Light and Gravity

C. Potential and Kinetic
Explanation
Energy can be categorized into two forms: potential and kinetic. Potential energy is the energy that an object possesses due to its position or condition, such as gravitational potential energy or elastic potential energy. Kinetic energy, on the other hand, is the energy of an object in motion. It is determined by the object's mass and velocity. Therefore, the correct answer is "Potential and Kinetic."

Rate this question:

• 13.

### Can energy change its form?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
Energy can change its form because it can be converted from one form to another. This is known as the principle of energy conservation. For example, potential energy can be converted into kinetic energy, electrical energy can be converted into thermal energy, and so on. This ability to change forms allows energy to be utilized in various ways and is a fundamental concept in physics.

• 14.

### When a material gets wet and absorbs water, what is effectively changed?

• A.

Potential energy

• B.

Material's index of fraction

• C.

Kinetic energy

• D.

The light source

B. Material's index of fraction
Explanation
When a material gets wet and absorbs water, its index of refraction effectively changes. The index of refraction is a measure of how much light is bent or refracted as it passes through a material. When water is absorbed by a material, it can alter the material's density and composition, which in turn affects the speed at which light travels through it. This change in the index of refraction can result in various optical phenomena, such as changes in the material's transparency or the appearance of a different color.
