Grade 10 Forces and Motion
Friction always acts                                                 .
  1. in the same direction as the direction of motion
  2. opposite to the direction of motion
  3. perpendicular to the direction of motion
  4. at a 45 degree angle to the direction of motion
Grade 10 Heat Transfer
Grade 10 Energy and Momentum
What is the difference between kinetic energy and potential energy?
  1. kinetic energy is stored energy that has the capacity to do work, and potential energy is the energy of motion
  2. kinetic energy is energy that an object possesses as a result of its location, and potential is the same as heat energy
  3. kinetic energy can be converted into various forms of energy, whereas potential energy can only be transformed into heat energy
  4. kinetic energy is energy of a moving object, whereas potential energy is energy possessed by matter as a result of its location or structure
  5. kinetic energy can be created or destroyed, while potential energy can be created and destroyed

The partial pressure of a gas in a mixture of gases placed in a vessel is                                                                                           .
  1. the ratio of the pressure exerted by this gas to the total pressure exerted by the mixture
  2. the total pressure diminished by the pressure of this gas
  3. the pressure a gas would exert if it were alone in the vessel.
  4. the negative pressure exerted by the gas in the mixture
