Unit Standard Title Demonstrate knowledge of sources, transference, and uses of energy. Element PC 1.1 Range PC 1.2 1 Describe sources of energy.

The description identifies energy sources as renewable or nonrenewable. Includes but is not limited to two renewable and two nonrenewable sources – hydro, wind, solar, bio-mass, geothermal, tidal, wave, oil, coal, gas, nuclear, food. The description outlines the formation, collection, or management of an energy source.

QUESTION A:
1.

Which of the following power sources are renewable and which are nonrenewable? Write R beside the renewable sources and N for the non-renewable sources. Power Source Hydro Wind Solar Coal Nuclear Bio-mass Geothermal Tidal Wave Oil Food Gas R or N

1.1
2.

Choose ONE of the following energy sources: oil, coal or gas. Name which energy source you have chosen and say where it is found and how it is formed.

Name of energy source: Where found: How formed:

1.2

PC 1.1

1.2

Evidence Hydro – R Wind M- R Solar –R Coal – N Nuclear – N Bio-mass – R Geothermal – R Tidal – R Wave – R Oil – N Food - R Gas – N Description of formation: • Formed underground / under the sea • From dead plants (coal) or animals • Over a long period of time

Judgement TWO renewable and TWO non-renewable sources identified

Formation described ie where found, from what AND over period of time

QUESTION B: 1. Put the following energy sources into the correct columns in the table: Hydro, food, gas, wind, solar, nuclear, bio-mass, geothermal, coal, tidal, wave, oil. Renewable Non-renewable

1.1 2. Choose TWO energy sources and say how each is either formed OR collected.

Energy source 1: How formed or collected:

Energy source 2: How formed or collected:

1.2 PC 1.1 Evidence Renewable: hydro, wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, tidal, wave, food Judgement TWO renewable and TWO non-renewable sources identified

1.2

Non-renewable: oil, coal, gas, nuclear Formation or collection appropriate to Formation OR collection described for one named energy source source Eg Solar - water pipes running across roof of swimming pool, the water in the pipes absorbs solar energy. Eg Coal – plants died and became buried without decomposing. Over a long time they turned to coal.

QUESTION C: 1. Put the following energy sources into the correct columns in the table: Hydro, wind, LPG, solar, nuclear, geothermal, coal, tides, oil. Renewable Non-renewable

1.1 Describe how the following energy sources are collected. Energy source 1: Wind

How energy source is collected:

Energy source 2: LPG How formed or collected:

1.2 PC 1.1 Evidence Renewable: hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, tides Judgement TWO renewable and TWO non-renewable sources identified

1.2

Non-renewable: oil, coal, gas, nuclear Description of collection method Collection described for one source Wind - Eg wind farms on hills in windy places LPG – Eg A drilling rig on a platform on the sea.

QUESTION D:
1.

Name two renewable and two non-renewable energy sources Renewable Non-renewable

1 2 1.1
2.

(a) Describe how the electrical energy from a hydro-electric dam is managed as it travels from the dam to houses in a city.

PC 1.1

Evidence Renewable: eg hydro, wind, solar, bio-mass, geothermal, tidal, wave, food Non-renewable: eg oil, coal, gas, nuclear Management of hydro-electric Eg national grid, sub stations, pylons, wires, insulation, electrical conductors, possum stops, earthing, AC Eg The power is carried by wires. Close to the dam the wires are held high up by pylons.

Judgement TWO renewable and TWO non-renewable sources identified

1.2

TWO points given in description of the management method

QUESTION E 1. Classify the following energy resources as either renewable or non-renewable. oil coal wind hydro solar gas

Renewable

Non - Renewable

2.

Put the following statements in order to describe the forming of a fossil fuel. Write the numbers in the boxes below. 1. 2. 3. 4. very long time passes fossil fuel forms animal/plant dies sediments compressed

5. buried under sediment Formation of a fossil fuel
a) b) c) d) e)

1.2 PC 1.1 1.2 Evidence Renewable: wind, solar, hydro Non-renewable: oil, coal, gas A=3, B=5, C=4, D=2, E=1 Judgement TWO renewable and TWO non-renewable sources identified Sequence in correct order
