 A level Energy and Electricity Quizzes.

(Energy and Electricity Quizzes for A level students, GCE, and GCSE)

Hello guys and Welcome to gcequiz.com, an online revision platform that will ease your revision by providing you with hundreds of quizzes to answer. Today we will be looking at what energy is, what electricity is, the different forms of energy and the different types of electricity.

Energy as well as Electricity are fields in Physics, especially for students aspiring to become Engineers, such as electrical, and petroleum engineers as well as mining engineers . For example,  Energy engineers work across the full energy lifecycle, including extraction, production, conversion, transmission and distribution, and play an integral role in processing energy from a variety of sources, e.g. solar, wind and geothermal power, nuclear power, water, oil, gas and biofuels. Now let's go detailly to what Energy and Electricity is all about. 

Energy is "the ability to do work". Energy is how things change and move. It takes energy to cook food, to drive to school, and to jump in the air. Different forms of Energy. Energy can take a number of different forms.  Which may include, 

  • Electrical Potential Energy
  • Sound Energy
  • Nuclear Energy
  • Kinetic Energy
  • Light
  • Heat energy can move from one place to another via conduction, convection and radiation
  • Gravitational Potential Energy
  • Chemical Potential Energy It is always important to note that "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed but can only be changed from one form to another". In other words, it can be stated as  energy of an isolated system remains constant; it is said to be conserved over time 

Electricity is the set of physical phenomena associated with the presence and motion of matter that has a property of electric charge
There are two main types of electricity,

  • Static Electricity: Static Electricity is nothing but the contact between equal amount of protons and electrons (positively and negatively charged subatomic particles).
  • Current Electricity: Current Electricity is a flow of electric charge across an electrical field.  

      We have to be very serious with these two topics for they play a very important role in the society , we see that,
An electrical engineer is someone who designs and develops new electrical systems, solves problems and tests equipment. They study and apply the physics and mathematics of electricity, electromagnetism and electronics to both large and small scale systems to process information and transmit energy which an energy engineer can now proceed.
