What is the law of conservation?

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be transferred from one store to another.

2

Name all of the 9 types of energy

Light energy
Sound energy
Thermal energy
Electrical energy
Nuclear energy
Kinetic energy
Elastic potential energy
Gravitational potential energy
Chemical energy

3

What modern day equipments use energy transfer?

Rollercoasters

4

How do solar panels work?(from the energy transfer point of view)

Heat energy is inputted into the solar panel, in which it is transferred to electric energy

5

How does a battery work?(when placed in something)

The battery has chemical energy and it is transferred to electrical energy

6

What is an example of elastic energy?

Elastic bands

7

What is an example of chemical energy?

Any food

8

What happens when you reach the top of the rollercoaster?

The gravitational potential energy turns to 0, in which is transferred to kinetic energy(when you go down)

9

What is an example of gravitational potential?

Flying on an aeroplane, or simply jumping

10

When a candle is lit, what are the energy transfers happening?

It starts off as chemical energy, in which when the candle is lit, it transfers into heat, light and a tiny bit of sound
