# The Principles Of Work And Energy: Quiz!

10 Questions | Total Attempts: 2043  Settings  In everyday life, energy means the ability to do a specific work. The theory of work and energy are closely intertwined. Work is done on an object when an applied force moves it through a distance. This quiz has been developed for physics students and learners to test their basic knowledge about Work and Energy concepts.
