### Description

A small quiz that tests you on all the relevant facts and formulas you need to know about kinetic and potential energy.

## Resource summary

### Question 1

Question
Kinetic energy is the energy a body has because of its motion.
• True
• False

### Question 2

Question
For a body of mass [blank_start]m[blank_end] travelling with velocity [blank_start]v[blank_end], kinetic energy = [blank_start]E_k = 1/2mv^2[blank_end].
• m
• v
• E_k = 1/2mv^2

### Question 3

Question
Potential energy is the energy a body has because of its position or condition.
• True
• False

### Question 4

Question
potential energy = [blank_start]change in E_p = mgh[blank_end]
• change in E_p = mgh

### Question 5

Question
For a car, the braking distance is directly proportional to the square of the speed.
• True
• False

### Question 6

Question
stopping distance = [blank_start]thinking distance[blank_end] + [blank_start]braking distance[blank_end]
• thinking distance
• braking distance
