### What energy is present in moving object?

• A.

Chemical Energy

• B.

Potential Energy

• C.

Kinetic Energy

• D.

Nuclear Energy

C. Kinetic Energy
Explanation
Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by an object due to its motion. When an object moves, it has the ability to do work and transfer energy to other objects or systems. This energy is known as kinetic energy. It depends on the mass and velocity of the object. The faster an object moves or the heavier it is, the more kinetic energy it possesses. Therefore, kinetic energy is the correct answer for the energy present in a moving object.

### What form of energy is stored in the leaves of plants?

• A.

Chemical Energy

• B.

Mechanical Energy

• C.

Heat Energy

• D.

Light Energy

A. Chemical Energy
Explanation
Plants store energy in the form of chemical energy. This energy is obtained through the process of photosynthesis, where plants convert sunlight into glucose and other organic compounds. These compounds are then stored in the leaves as starch or other forms of carbohydrates. When needed, the plant can break down these compounds to release the stored energy for various metabolic processes. Therefore, the correct answer is chemical energy.

### 3. Which of the following statement is true?

• A.

Friction makes an object slide

• B.

Gravity pushes an object upward

• C.

Force is needed to stop an object

• D.

An object in motion will remain in motion

D. An object in motion will remain in motion
Explanation
This statement is based on Newton's first law of motion, also known as the law of inertia. According to this law, an object in motion will continue to move in a straight line at a constant speed unless acted upon by an external force. This means that if no force is applied to an object in motion, it will continue to move indefinitely.

### In which part of the magnet are magnetic forces strongest?

• A.

At both ends

• B.

In the center

• C.

At its north pole

• D.

At its south pole

C. At its north pole
Explanation
The magnetic forces are strongest at the north pole of a magnet. This is because the north pole of a magnet attracts the south pole of another magnet, and opposite poles attract each other with the strongest force. Therefore, the north pole of a magnet has the strongest magnetic force.

### 13. A baseball and a sheet of paper are dropped at the same time from the same height. What will occur if there is no air resistance?

• A.

The baseball will land first.

• B.

The paper will float slowly through the air.

• C.

The baseball will float slowly though the air.

• D.

The baseball and the paper will land at the same time

D. The baseball and the paper will land at the same time
Explanation
If there is no air resistance, both the baseball and the sheet of paper will experience the same acceleration due to gravity. This means that they will fall at the same rate and will therefore land at the same time. The mass of the objects does not affect their rate of fall in the absence of air resistance.

### A boy sits on a grassy slope. What force stops him from sliding down?

• A.

Friction

• B.

Magnetic force

• C.

Gravity

• D.

Motion

A. Friction
Explanation
Friction is the force that stops the boy from sliding down the grassy slope. When the boy sits on the slope, the friction between his body and the grass provides a counteracting force against the downward pull of gravity. This frictional force acts in the opposite direction to the sliding motion, preventing the boy from moving down the slope. Without friction, the boy would slide down due to the force of gravity.

### The boat sailing on the sea slows down. What kind of friction is acting on it?

• A.

Rolling Friction

• B.

Static Friction

• C.

Sliding Friction

• D.

Fluid Friction

D. Fluid Friction
Explanation
When a boat is sailing on the sea, it experiences fluid friction. Fluid friction, also known as drag, is the resistance that occurs when an object moves through a fluid, such as air or water. In this case, as the boat moves through the water, the water molecules exert a force on the boat, causing it to slow down. This force of fluid friction opposes the motion of the boat and is responsible for its deceleration.

### SHOVELS

• A.

First Class Lever

• B.

Second Class Lever

• C.

Third Class Lever

C. Third Class Lever
Explanation
Shovels are an example of a third class lever because the effort (force applied by the person using the shovel) is located between the fulcrum (the point where the shovel pivots) and the load (the dirt being lifted). In a third class lever, the effort arm is shorter than the load arm, which means that a greater effort force is required to move the load.

### Nutcraker

• A.

First Class Lever

• B.

Second Class Lever

• C.

Third Class Lever

B. Second Class Lever
Explanation
A nutcracker is a device used to crack open nuts. It typically consists of two handles joined together at one end and a hinge at the other end. When pressure is applied to the handles, the hinge acts as a fulcrum, allowing the force to be concentrated at the point where the nut is being cracked. In a second class lever, the load is located between the fulcrum and the effort. In the case of a nutcracker, the nut serves as the load, the hinge acts as the fulcrum, and the force applied to the handles is the effort. Therefore, a nutcracker is an example of a second class lever.

### Can opener

• A.

First Class Lever

• B.

Second Class Lever

• C.

Third Class Lever

B. Second Class Lever
Explanation
A can opener is an example of a second-class lever because the load (the can lid) is between the fulcrum (the point where the can opener pivots) and the effort (the force applied by the user). In a second-class lever, the load is always closer to the fulcrum than the effort, which allows for greater mechanical advantage. In the case of a can opener, the user applies force at the handle (the effort) to lift the lid (the load) using the pivot point (the fulcrum) as a support.

### Tweezers

• A.

First Class Lever

• B.

Second Class Lever

• C.

Third Class Lever

C. Third Class Lever
Explanation
A lever is a simple machine that consists of a rigid bar that rotates around a fixed point called a fulcrum. In a third class lever, the fulcrum is located at one end of the lever, the effort is applied at the other end, and the load is located between the fulcrum and the effort. This means that the load is closer to the fulcrum than the effort, resulting in a mechanical advantage less than 1. In the case of tweezers, the fulcrum is the pivot point where the two arms meet, the effort is applied by squeezing the handles, and the load is the object being grasped. Therefore, tweezers can be classified as a third class lever.

### Spoon

• A.

First Class Lever

• B.

Second Class Lever

• C.

Third Class Lever

C. Third Class Lever
Explanation
A third-class lever is a type of lever where the effort is applied between the fulcrum and the load. In the case of a spoon, the fulcrum is the point where the spoon rests on a surface, the load is the food being lifted, and the effort is applied by the hand holding the spoon. This arrangement allows for a greater range of motion and speed, making it easier to scoop up food with a spoon. Therefore, a spoon can be considered as an example of a third-class lever.

### Baseball bat

• A.

First Class Lever

• B.

Second Class Lever

• C.

Third Class Lever

C. Third Class Lever
Explanation
A baseball bat is an example of a third-class lever because the effort (force applied by the batter) is located between the fulcrum (the batter's hands) and the load (the ball). In this case, the effort is the force exerted by the batter to swing the bat, the fulcrum is the batter's hands gripping the bat, and the load is the ball being hit. Third-class levers are designed to increase speed and range of motion, but at the expense of force.

### fishing pole

• A.

First Class Lever

• B.

Second Class Lever

• C.

Third Class Lever

C. Third Class Lever
Explanation
A fishing pole is an example of a third-class lever because the effort (force) is applied between the fulcrum (pivot point) and the load (fish). In this case, the effort is the force exerted by the angler to lift and catch the fish, the fulcrum is the point where the pole is held or rests, and the load is the weight of the fish. Third-class levers are characterized by having the effort closer to the fulcrum than the load, resulting in an increase in speed and range of motion, but a decrease in force.

### Falling objects on Earth pass through air.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Objects falling on Earth do pass through air. When an object falls, it experiences air resistance, which is the force exerted by the air on the object as it moves through it. This resistance opposes the motion of the object and causes it to slow down. The amount of air resistance depends on factors such as the size, shape, and speed of the object. Therefore, it is true that falling objects on Earth pass through air.

### The speed of falling objects will be the same on Earth and on the moon.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The speed of falling objects will not be the same on Earth and on the moon because the acceleration due to gravity is different on each celestial body. On Earth, the acceleration due to gravity is approximately 9.8 m/s^2, while on the moon it is only about 1.6 m/s^2. This means that objects will fall slower on the moon compared to Earth. Therefore, the statement is false.

### If you drop the feather and the hammer on the moon, the hammer and the feather will fall at the same speed.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
In the absence of an atmosphere on the moon, there is no air resistance to slow down the fall of objects. Therefore, both the feather and the hammer will experience the same acceleration due to gravity and fall at the same speed. This phenomenon is known as the equivalence principle and was famously demonstrated by astronaut David Scott during the Apollo 15 mission in 1971.

### Friction opposes motion

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Friction is a force that acts in the opposite direction of motion, making it harder for objects to move. This resistance is due to the interaction between the surfaces of two objects in contact. When an object is in motion, friction acts in the direction opposite to its motion, effectively opposing its movement. Therefore, the statement "Friction opposes motion" is true.

Rate this question:

• 37.

### Stationary friction occurs in moving objects.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Stationary friction occurs when an object is at rest or not moving. It is the force that opposes the motion of an object when an external force is applied to it. Therefore, stationary friction does not occur in moving objects.

Rate this question:

• 38.

### Friction converts some energy into heat and causes wear and tear on materials.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Friction is a force that opposes the motion of objects in contact with each other. When objects rub against each other, the friction between them converts some of the energy into heat. This heat generation is why we feel objects getting warm when we rub them together. Additionally, friction can also cause wear and tear on materials as the surfaces rub against each other, leading to the gradual degradation of the materials over time. Therefore, the statement that friction converts energy into heat and causes wear and tear on materials is true.

Rate this question:

### Sound energy is produced by vibrating objects

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Sound energy is produced by vibrating objects. When an object vibrates, it creates waves of pressure in the surrounding medium, such as air or water. These pressure waves then travel through the medium as sound energy. This is why we can hear sounds when an object vibrates, such as when a guitar string is plucked or when a drum is struck. Therefore, the statement "Sound energy is produced by vibrating objects" is true.

### Mechanical energy is the energy possessed by a moving object due to its motion or its stored energy of position.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Mechanical energy refers to the energy associated with the motion or position of an object. When an object is moving, it possesses kinetic energy, and when it is at rest, it possesses potential energy. Therefore, it is true that mechanical energy is the energy possessed by a moving object due to its motion or its stored energy of position.

Rate this question:

• 41.

### All potential energy can be changed to kinetic energy

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
This statement is true because potential energy is the energy that an object possesses due to its position or condition. When this potential energy is released or converted, it can be transformed into kinetic energy, which is the energy of motion. Therefore, all potential energy can indeed be changed into kinetic energy.
