• 1.

### Are wind and wave power renewable?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
They will never run out.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### How does wind power work?

• A.

Wind goes straight into the turbine powering the generator

• B.

Wind turns the turbine powering the generator

• C.

Wind is trapped in a box and transported to your homes

• D.

The turbines blow wind to power stations to be turned into electrisity

B. Wind turns the turbine powering the generator
Explanation
Wind power works by harnessing the energy from the wind to turn the turbine, which in turn powers the generator. The wind directly rotates the blades of the turbine, causing it to spin. This rotational motion is then transferred to the generator, where it is converted into electricity. Therefore, the correct answer is "Wind turns the turbine powering the generator."

### How does wave power work?

• A.

The water carries electric eels to the power stations

• B.

When the tide changes the magnet moves

• C.

The water flows into the staition where people cycling to power drink when they get tired

• D.

When the water rushes over the turbine which moves the magnet

D. When the water rushes over the turbine which moves the magnet
Explanation
Wave power works by harnessing the energy from ocean waves. When the water rushes over a turbine, it causes the turbine to rotate. This rotation then moves a magnet, which generates electricity through the principle of electromagnetic induction. This electricity can then be captured and used as a source of power.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### With wind power ________ energy is converted to ________ energy

Kinetic,kinetic
Electric,electric
Explanation
Wind power harnesses the kinetic energy of the wind and converts it into kinetic energy by using wind turbines. The rotating blades of the turbine capture the kinetic energy of the wind and convert it into mechanical energy. This mechanical energy is then further converted into electric energy through a generator. Therefore, the correct answer is "Kinetic, kinetic, Electric, electric."
