Physical Science Quizzes & Trivia

Are you smarter than a 5th grader? We’re not talking about the game show. We’re actually really asking you. It is in this grade that we first encounter Physical Science. And again and again until we reach high school and college. Do you still remember what you’ve learned during your Physical Science classes?
Well, judgment day has arrived! So tell us, what science deals most with energy and forces? What causes a balloon to remain inflated? Say hello again to Gay-Lussac and Avogadro. Or maybe have a cup of coffee with Einstein and Volta. Ace our quizzes and prove to us that you are destined to be a quizzing champion. Get those thinking caps on and carry on!

Why is the weight of an object of mass M is different on Mars than it is on the earth?
The gravitational force and acceleration due to gravity are derived via the Fg = G m1m2/r^2 equation... where mass and distance from the center of the object make a difference... The accelerations due to gravity(g) are different on Earth(9.8 m/s^2)a
What is the difference between nuclear energy and chemical energy?
Chemical and Nuclear energy are different. Chemical Energy is potential energy that can be converted to other forms, usually heat and light. This is energy when bonds form. The stronger the bond the more chemical energy that can be converted. Nuclea
Which one has the greater kinetic energy (KE)?
The correct answer to this question is A. The bowling ball has more kinetic energy because it has a greater mass than the ping pong ball and greater distribution of mass. A ping pong ball is hollow, whereas the bowling ball's solid mass affects the i
