Lesson Worksheet: Energy and Motion Science
In this worksheet, we will practice identifying and describing different forms of energy.
All types of energy can be categorized as energy.
- Achemical or potential
- Bkinetic or potential
- Clight or electrical
- Dsound or kinetic
What is the scientific term for the stored energy in an object?
- AElectrical energy
- BKinetic energy
- CPotential energy
- DLight energy
All of the following are examples of objects that have kinetic energy except for a .
- Arolling football
- Bmoving car
- Cstationary box
- Dfalling apple
Explain why the roller coaster needs electricity when it goes up the hill but not when it slides down.
- ABecause it stores potential energy, which is converted to kinetic energy during sliding down
- BBecause it stores kinetic energy, which is converted to potential energy during sliding down
- CBecause it stores electrical energy, which is converted to potential energy during sliding down
- DBecause it stores electrical energy, which is converted to kinetic energy during sliding down
Batteries store potential energy.
True or False: The spring of a toy car stores kinetic energy causing the car to move later on.
Fill in the blanks: A flashlight converts electrical energy into light, but the battery inside the flashlight converts energy into energy.
- Aelectrical, chemical
