By Malik Bryant
1. Energy is the capacity for strong activity and available power.
2. Potential Energy is stored energy.
3. Kinetic Energy is energy that is in motion.
4. Fossil Fuels are any combustible organic material obtained from the remains of former life.
5. The Law of Conservation of Energy is the principle that in a system that does not pass through any force from outside the system, the amount of energy is constant, ignoring of its changes in form.
6. They are formed in a cycle and the process takes everyday.
7. The conservation of non-renewable resources like fossil fuels involves guaranteeing that enough quantities are maintained for future generations to use.
8. It contributes to global warming, non-renewable, and it's unsustainable.
9 .There is wind power, solar power, geothermal energy, and hydroelectric energy.
10. It's energy derived from the sun in the form of solar radiation.
11. One advantage is that solar panels give off no pollution. One disadvantage is the initial cost of solar cells.
12. A wind turbine is for wind power and hydroelectricity associated with building dams are for water.
13. Yes, because they have different advantages in their own ways.
14. It can be converted by photosynthesis.
15. The use of methane, sound energy and human motion.
19. When the water gets hotter and when there's longer daylight.
20. Wind, geothermal, water, biomass, and solar are renewable. Oil, coal, natural gas, and nuclear are nonrenewable.
