What type of potential energy is found in food? Chemical potential energy
Can energy be created? No, it is converted from one form to another
When a torch is turned on is the energy transferred or transformed? Transformed
A toasted uses electrical energy to produce what type of energy? Heat
What are examples of renewable energy? Solar, wind, hydroelectric
True or false: Energy can disappear False

A candle is lit. What type of energy is produced? Heat, light
A phone is charged. What type of energy is this? electrical
Music is played through speakers. What type of energy is this? Sound
What is the formula for energy efficiency? Useful energy / total energy * 100 = Energy Efficiency
What does a Sankey diagram show? Useful and wasted energy
Energy that serves the purpose of the appliance is... Useful
Energy that is not intended for use by the appliance is... Wasted
Energy is stored in our bodies for later use. What type of energy is this? Chemical potential energy
