    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which answer can best be defined as "the force caused by the motion of an object"

    • A.

      Kinetic energy

    • B.

      Potential energy

    • C.

      Latent energy

    Correct Answer
    A. Kinetic energy
    Explanation
    Kinetic energy can best be defined as "the force caused by the motion of an object." When an object is in motion, it possesses kinetic energy. The amount of kinetic energy an object has depends on its mass and velocity. As the object's speed increases, its kinetic energy also increases. This energy is transferred from the object to other objects or can be converted into other forms of energy. Therefore, kinetic energy is the most appropriate answer to the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which answer can best be defined as "the force stored in an object that isn't moving"

    • A.

      Potential energy

    • B.

      Latent energy

    • C.

      Kinetic energy

    Correct Answer
    A. Potential energy
    Explanation
    Potential energy can best be defined as "the force stored in an object that isn't moving." Potential energy is the energy possessed by an object due to its position or condition. It is stored energy that has the potential to do work when released. When an object is not in motion, it can still possess potential energy based on its position or state, such as gravitational potential energy or elastic potential energy. Therefore, potential energy is the most suitable answer for the given definition.
