How do waves carry energy?
Waves, Energy

• 1.

### Waves spread in __________ direction from the point where you drop an object in the water????

• A.

All

• B.

The Right

• C.

The Left

• D.

None of the directions

• E.

You can't drop an object in the water

A. All
Explanation
When an object is dropped in water, waves spread in all directions from the point of impact. This is because water waves are a type of mechanical waves that radiate outward from their source in a circular or spherical pattern. The disturbance caused by the object dropping creates ripples that propagate in all directions, causing the waves to spread outwards. Therefore, the correct answer is "All".

### The rock causes molecules in the water to move back and forth as a _________?????

• A.

Energy

• B.

Vibration

• C.

Electricity

• D.

Wavelengths

• E.

All of the Above

B. Vibration
Explanation
When a rock is thrown into water, it creates ripples or waves that spread outwards. These waves are caused by the movement of molecules in the water. The rock imparts energy to the water, causing the molecules to vibrate back and forth. Therefore, the correct answer is "Vibration".

### _______ Light is onlyone of the many kinds of waves that travel to Earth from the Sun.

• A.

Non-visible

• B.

Electric

• C.

Visible

• D.

None of the Above

• E.

All of the Above

C. Visible
Explanation
The correct answer is "Visible" because the statement mentions that light is one of the many kinds of waves that travel to Earth from the Sun. Since light is visible to the human eye, it can be concluded that the waves mentioned in the statement are referring to visible light.

### Seeing color - the wavelengths of light that an object absorbs and reflects determine it's color. Some colors are purple, pink, orange, clear

• A.

True

• B.

Not True

• C.

Non of the Above

• D.

All of the Above

• E.

What ever you want to think

C. Non of the Above
Explanation
The given statement suggests that the colors mentioned are the only colors, which is not true. There are many other colors apart from purple, pink, orange, and clear. Therefore, the correct answer is "None of the Above" as none of the options accurately represent the given statement.

### Do the ice cubes cool the lemonade or does the lemonade warm the ice cubes???

• A.

The lemonade warms the ice cubes

• B.

The ice cubes cool the lemonade

• C.

Both

• D.

Neither

• E.

What ever I think is right

C. Both
Explanation
Both the ice cubes and the lemonade interact with each other to achieve a state of thermal equilibrium. When the ice cubes are added to the lemonade, they transfer their cold temperature to the lemonade, causing it to cool down. At the same time, the lemonade transfers its heat to the ice cubes, causing them to melt and warm up. Therefore, both processes occur simultaneously, resulting in a balance between cooling and warming of the lemonade.

### How many types of heat transfer are there???

• A.

1

• B.

2

• C.

3

• D.

17

• E.

There is none

C. 3
Explanation
There are three types of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is the transfer of heat through direct contact between objects or substances. Convection is the transfer of heat through the movement of fluids or gases. Radiation is the transfer of heat through electromagnetic waves.

### Thermal energy that can move from 1 substance to another is called HEAT.

• A.

False

• B.

True

• C.

Almost true but not quite yet

• D.

Almost false but not quite yet

• E.

All of the Above

B. True
Explanation
Heat is defined as the transfer of thermal energy from one substance to another. It is the energy in transit due to a temperature difference between two objects. Therefore, the statement "Thermal energy that can move from one substance to another is called heat" is true. Heat is a form of energy that can be transferred through conduction, convection, or radiation.

### Thermal energy that can not move from 1 substance to another is called HEAT.

• A.

True

• B.

Almost false but not quite yet

• C.

Almost true but not quite yet

• D.

False

• E.

All of the Above

D. False
Explanation
The given statement is false because thermal energy that cannot move from one substance to another is not called heat. Heat is the transfer of thermal energy from one object to another due to a difference in temperature. If thermal energy cannot move from one substance to another, it is referred to as thermal insulation or an insulator.

### When you take your temp. and the mercery rises in the termometer it's because of your ________ ______ in your body

• A.

Kinetic Energy

• B.

Thermal Energy

• C.

Underground Energy

• D.

Light Energy

• E.

Solor Energy

A. Kinetic Energy
Explanation
When you take your temperature and the mercury rises in the thermometer, it is because of the thermal energy in your body. Thermal energy refers to the internal energy of an object or a system, and it is directly related to the kinetic energy of its particles. In this case, the increase in temperature causes the particles in your body to move faster, resulting in an increase in kinetic energy and consequently causing the mercury in the thermometer to rise.

### Temperature is the same as Thermal Energy

• A.

True

• B.

Almost True

• C.

False

• D.

Almost False

C. False
Explanation
The statement that "Temperature is the same as Thermal Energy" is false. Temperature and thermal energy are related but not the same. Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a substance, while thermal energy is the total kinetic energy of all the particles in a substance. Temperature is measured in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit, while thermal energy is measured in joules.
