When you apply the brakes in your car to slow it down, you are applying the work-energy theorem. Assess your understanding of this theorem with this quiz/worksheet combo. The quiz questions will test you on matters such as why it takes more work to stop a fast car than a slow one.

This quiz and worksheet will test you on the following:

- Definition of the work-energy theorem
- Why potential energy is called stored energy
- What does not constitute a change in energy

These assessments allow students to test the knowledge they gained from the lesson by using the following skills:

**Interpreting information**- verify that you can read information regarding the work-energy theorem and interpret it correctly**Information recall**- access the knowledge you've gained regarding potential energy**Knowledge application**- use your knowledge to answer questions about changes in energy

To learn more about the work-energy theorem, review the accompanying lesson Work-Energy Theorem: Definition and Application. The lesson covers the following objectives:

- Define kinetic energy
- Identify the equation in calculating work
- Learn about how energy can increase or decrease
