Work, Energy and Power MCQ for NEET

Work, energy, and power are the most commonly used terms in Physics.

Work is defined as the transfer of energy. In Physics, work is said to be done when there is a transfer of energy from one body to another. Also, work is an application of force.

Energy is defined as the capacity to do work. Kinetic energy and potential energy are the two types of energy. While heat energy, mechanical energy, chemical energy are the forms of energy.

Power is defined as the work done in unit time.
