  1. Which form of energy increases if an object is lifted?
    Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE)
  2. What do we call the law that says that "Energy cannot be created or destroyed"?
    Conservation of energy
  3. What term do we use to describe wasted energy spreading out?
    • Dissipation (process)
    • Dissipated (what happens to the energy)
  4. What type of diagram is used to show the amount of useful and wasted energy in a device (or process)?
    Sankey diagram
  5. What is the unit of electrical power?
    Watt (W)
  6. What unit is the same as 1 joule per second?
    Watt (W)

    • sound,
    • thermal,
    • light,
    • kinetic (KE)
    • strain,
    • electrical,
    • chemical,
    • Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE)
  8. What form of energy is most wasted energy turned into?
    Thermal energy (heat)
