Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The types of energy used to move lever and type of energy produced has to be given.

Concept introduction:

Energy:

Energy is the capacity to do work, and can neither be created nor destroyed.  Generally, chemical reaction almost always either release or absorb energy.

Types of energy:

Kinetic energy is the energy associated with motion.

Potential energy is the energy results from an object’s position or state.

Explanation

The incident light indicates the energy is same as the radiation or light (visible light or a light bulb).  Therefore, the type of energy is electromagnetic energy.

The solar panel resulting the electric current generation...
