Transfer and Transformation of Energy

Key Stage 3 Science / Physics

Sample Question

The conservation of energy states that energy, regardless of its origins, is not lost but it is converted to other forms. So in which forms is the solar energy converted before it becomes the kinetic energy of horses?

  • Solar energy -> chemical energy in plants -> chemical energy in horses -> kinetic energy of horses
  • Solar energy -> gravitational potential energy of plants -> kinetic energy of horses
  • Solar energy -> chemical energy in plants -> kinetic energy of horses
  • Thermal energy -> nuclear energy in plants -> kinetic energy of horses
  • Thermal energy -> chemical energy in plants -> kinetic energy of horses
