Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How can we preserve electrical energy?

    • A.

      Not eating

    • B.

      Turning off lights and tvs...... recycling

    • C.

      Keeping the lights on

    • D.

      Not recycling

    Correct Answer
    B. Turning off lights and tvs...... recycling
    Explanation
    By turning off lights and TVs when they are not in use, we can conserve electrical energy. This is because when these appliances are left on, they continue to consume electricity even if they are not being actively used. Recycling also helps in preserving electrical energy as it reduces the need for manufacturing new products from raw materials, which requires a significant amount of energy.

    Correct Answer
    B. Chemical
    Explanation
    Batteries store and release energy through a chemical reaction. When a battery is charged, a chemical reaction occurs that stores energy. When the battery is used, the stored energy is converted back into electrical energy through another chemical reaction. Therefore, the correct answer is chemical energy. Mechanical, thermal, and magnetic energy are not typically associated with batteries.

  • 4. 

    If a ball is being throw up in the air what two types of energy is happening.

    • A.

      Radiant and chemical

    • B.

      Thermal and potentail

    • C.

      Kinetic and potentail

    • D.

      Nuclear and kinetic

    Correct Answer
    C. Kinetic and potentail
    Explanation
    When a ball is thrown up in the air, it possesses both kinetic energy and potential energy. Kinetic energy is the energy associated with the ball's motion, as it moves upwards. Potential energy is the energy stored in the ball due to its position or height above the ground. As the ball rises, its kinetic energy decreases while its potential energy increases. Therefore, the correct answer is kinetic and potential energy.

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Chemical
    Explanation
    Plants have chemical energy because they undergo photosynthesis, a process that converts sunlight into glucose molecules. These glucose molecules store energy in their chemical bonds, which can be used by the plant for growth, reproduction, and other metabolic activities. Chemical energy is essential for plants to carry out their life processes and is the main source of energy for all living organisms in the food chain.

    What energy do you have when you eat?

    • A.

      Chemical

    • B.

      Sound

    • C.

      Kinetic

    • D.

      Potential

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Chemical
    Explanation
    When you eat, the energy that you obtain from food is in the form of chemical energy. This energy is stored in the bonds of the molecules present in the food, such as carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Through the process of digestion and metabolism, these molecules are broken down, releasing the stored chemical energy, which is then used by the body for various functions like growth, movement, and maintaining body temperature. Therefore, the correct answer is chemical energy.

    Heat is the transfer of energy. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Heat is the transfer of energy from one object or substance to another due to a temperature difference. It occurs when there is a flow of thermal energy from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature. This transfer of energy can occur through conduction, convection, or radiation. Therefore, it is correct to say that heat is the transfer of energy.

    • A.

      A candle

    • B.

      A fan

    • C.

      A tv

    • D.

      A glass of water

    Correct Answer
    A. A candle
    Explanation
    A candle is an example of chemical energy that turns into thermal energy and gives off light and heat. When a candle burns, the heat is produced through a chemical reaction between the wax and the oxygen in the air. This heat energy is then transferred to the surroundings, resulting in the emission of light and heat.
