Roberto is a musician playing in a band. At the end of a song, he plucks a single guitar string. The string moves rapidly back and forth. Which of these statements explains what happens to the kinetic energy of the moving string?
 A The kinetic energy is changed into potential energy and stored B The kinetic energy is converted to sound energy and thermal energy C The kinetic energy is slowly destroyed until no energy remains D Some of the energy is converted to sound energy, but the rest is destroyed
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -At the end of a song, he plucks a single guitar string. The string moves rapidly back and forth. Which of these statements explains what happens to the kinetic energy of the moving string? The kinetic energy is changed into potential energy and stored.

Detailed explanation-2: -Guitar strings, like the strings on many other instruments, are strung with varying levels of tension. This tension gives the string potential energy. When the string is plucked, a certain amount of the potential energy is converted to kinetic energy.

Detailed explanation-3: -Energy comes in six basic forms: chemical, electrical, radiant, mechanical, thermal and nuclear. In other research, you may find additional forms mentioned such as electrochemical, sound, electromagnetic and others.

Detailed explanation-4: -Forms of energy include mechanical, chemical, electrical, electromagnetic, thermal, sound, and nuclear energy.

Detailed explanation-5: -Kinetic, potential, and chemical energy.
