### The two main types of energy are...(bubble two bubbles)

• A.

Potential

• B.

Quiatonic

• C.

Hewlett

• D.

Kinetic

• E.

Ziatone

A. Potential
C. Hewlett
D. Kinetic
Explanation
The correct answer is Potential, Hewlett, and Kinetic. Potential energy refers to the energy that an object possesses due to its position or condition. Hewlett may refer to the company Hewlett-Packard (HP), which is known for its technological innovations and products. Kinetic energy, on the other hand, refers to the energy possessed by an object in motion. Together, these three options represent the two main types of energy: potential energy and kinetic energy, along with a reference to a well-known company.

### ________ Energy is the energy of motion...

• A.

Potential

• B.

Quiatonic

• C.

Hewlett

• D.

Kinetic

• E.

Ziatone

D. Kinetic
Explanation
Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by an object due to its motion. It depends on the mass and velocity of the object. When an object is in motion, it has the ability to do work and can transfer its energy to other objects. Therefore, kinetic energy is the correct answer as it accurately describes the energy of motion.

### ________ Energy is the energy to have the potential to drop gain energy.

• A.

Potential

• B.

Quiatonic

• C.

Hewlett

• D.

Kinetic

• E.

Ziatone

A. Potential
Explanation
Potential energy is the energy that an object possesses due to its position or condition. It is the energy that is stored and has the potential to be converted into other forms of energy, such as kinetic energy. This energy can be released or gained depending on the circumstances, allowing it to be used for various purposes.

### Which of the following is an example of kinetic energy...

• A.

None, you idiots! Because kinetic energy isn't real.

• B.

A guitar string singing

• C.

A dalmation

• D.

A rock sitting on top of a table

• E.

Nolan Ryan throwing a 100 mpH fastball in a baseball game.

E. Nolan Ryan throwing a 100 mpH fastball in a baseball game.
Explanation
The correct answer is Nolan Ryan throwing a 100 mph fastball in a baseball game. Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by an object due to its motion. In this scenario, the fastball is in motion, and its speed of 100 mph indicates a significant amount of kinetic energy.

### Which is an example of potential energy?

• A.

None, you idiots! Because potential energy isn't real.

• B.

A guitar string singing

• C.

A dalmation

• D.

A rock sitting on a table

• E.

Randy Johnson throwing a 100 mpH fastball in a baseball game.

D. A rock sitting on a table
Explanation
The correct answer is a rock sitting on a table. Potential energy refers to the stored energy an object possesses due to its position or condition. In this case, the rock sitting on a table has potential energy because it has the ability to fall or roll off the table, which would result in a release of energy. The other options mentioned, such as a guitar string singing, a dalmatian, or Randy Johnson throwing a fastball, do not involve potential energy.

### Which is an example of Quiatonic Energy...

• A.

None, you idiots! because quiatonic energy isn't real.

• B.

A guitar string singing

• C.

A dalmation

• D.

A rock sitting on a table

• E.

Cy Young throwing a 100mpH pitch in a game.

A. None, you idiots! because quiatonic energy isn't real.

### The formula for gravitational potential energy is....

• A.

Velocity x Mass

• B.

Mass x Gravity

• C.

Weight x Height

• D.

Gravity x Height

• E.

Mass x Distance

C. Weight x Height
Explanation
The correct answer is "Weight x Height." This formula for gravitational potential energy is derived from the concept that an object's potential energy is directly proportional to its weight (mass x gravity) and the height at which it is located. As an object is lifted to a higher height, its potential energy increases due to the increase in gravitational force acting on it. Thus, multiplying weight (mass x gravity) by height gives the correct formula for calculating gravitational potential energy.

### The Formula for Power is...

• A.

Work Input/ Rapid Speed

• B.

Work Ammount/ Distance covered

• C.

Yellow/ Blue

• D.

Word Done / Time Interval

• E.

Force / Distance

D. Word Done / Time Interval
Explanation
The correct answer is "Word Done / Time Interval". This formula represents the calculation of power, which is the rate at which work is done or energy is transferred. The formula states that power is equal to the work done divided by the time interval it takes to do that work. This means that the amount of work done in a given time determines the power output.

### The Formula for work is...

• A.

Force x Distance

• B.

Work Input x Work Output

• C.

Velocity x Distance

• D.

Power x Force

• E.

Force x Horsepower

A. Force x Distance
Explanation
The formula for work is force multiplied by distance. This is because work is defined as the amount of energy transferred by a force acting through a distance. The force applied on an object multiplied by the distance over which the force is applied gives us the work done on the object. Therefore, the correct answer is Force x Distance.

### The Formula to find the Kinetic Energy is....

• A.

1/2velocity x distance

• B.

1/2mass x Speed

• C.

Transformation x Work output

• D.

Mass ^2 x Distamnce

• E.

Veloctiy ^2 x Speed

B. 1/2mass x Speed
Explanation
The correct answer is 1/2mass x Speed. This formula represents the calculation of kinetic energy, which is the energy possessed by an object due to its motion. The formula takes into account the mass of the object and its speed. The term "1/2mass" represents half of the mass of the object, and when multiplied by the speed, it gives the value of kinetic energy.

### The Law of conservation of energy is...

• A.

Energy can be created, but not destroyed. That is why there is such things as wimdmills and coal resources where so that we can make hybrids cars and stuff like that.

• B.

Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it may be transformed from one form to another, but the total amount of energy never changes.

• C.

Energy Can be created and destroyed. However, transformation cannot happen. It stays with the same type of energy it began with.

• D.

Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it may be transformed from quiatonic energy to hewlett and vice versa.

• E.

Energy Can be destroyed, but not created. Durring a transformation between one form to the other, energy is lost.

B. Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it may be transformed from one form to another, but the total amount of energy never changes.
Explanation
The correct answer states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be transformed from one form to another. This is known as the Law of Conservation of Energy. It means that the total amount of energy in a closed system remains constant. Energy can be converted from potential energy to kinetic energy, or from mechanical energy to thermal energy, for example, but the total energy remains the same. This principle is fundamental in understanding and explaining various phenomena in physics and engineering.

### Efficency's formula is....

• A.

Work Output/ Work input

• B.

Nolan/Ryan

• C.

Input Distance/ Output Distance

• D.

Rodger/ Clemens

• E.

Usefull Work Output / Total Work Input

E. Usefull Work Output / Total Work Input
Explanation
The formula for efficiency is useful work output divided by total work input. This formula calculates the efficiency of a system by comparing the amount of useful work that is produced to the total amount of work that is inputted into the system. The higher the value of the efficiency, the more efficient the system is in converting input work into useful output work.
