Mechanical Energy

Mechanical energy is
  1. found in machinery, only.
  2. usually measured at the atomic level.
  3. the sum of the chemical and thermal energy of an object.
  4. the sum of the kinetic and potential energy of an object.
Potential energy is                energy.
  1. stored
  2. motion
  3. kinetic
  4. mechanical
Kinetic energy is the energy of                .
  1. time
  2. motion
  3. distance
  4. matter
Which of the following is NOT an example of kinetic energy being converted to potential energy?
  1. a basketball player jumping for a rebound
  2. releasing a compressed spring
  3. squeezing a rubber ball
  4. pulling a sled up a hill
An example of the conversion of gravitational potential energy into kinetic energy is
  1. a falling raindrop.
  2. a gasoline powered engine.
  3. striking a match.
  4. a hockey puck sliding on ice.
An example of potential energy is
  1. a basketball sitting on a rack.
  2. a bird flying.
  3. water boiling.
  4. Grandma rocking in her chair.
  5. none of the above.
Animals eat plants and convert the chemical energy contained in them into
  1. radiant energy.
  2. electrical energy.
  3. kinetic energy.
  4. none of the above.
Energy in matter can cause that matter to move or change. An example would be standing still by the diving board. This is called                 energy.
  1. kinetic
  2. stored
  3. heat
  4. nuclear
A car or truck moving down the highway has                 energy by virtue of its motion.
  1. kinetic
  2. potential
  3. thermodynamic
  4. chemical
Which is an example of kinetic energy?
  1. standing
  2. no motion
  3. walking
  4. a battery
