|3. |Of the following, which allows the greatest amount of air to flow into a home? |
| |A. |
| |Electric Outlets |
| | |
| |B. |
| |Fire Places |
| | |
| |C. |
| |Windows |
| | |
| |D. |
| |Doors |
| | |

Sorry, only about 10% of the total air enters a home through the windows. This can be improved upon by installing double and triple pane windows along with spray foam insulation to fill any remaining void spaces. Of course, keeping the windows shut always helps too!

|4. |In the Northern Hemisphere, which direction should a home face to receive maximum benefits from solar radiation? |
| |A. |
| |South |
| | |
| |B. |
| |North |
| | |
| |C. |
| |East |
| | |
| |D. |
| |West |
| | |

In the northern hemisphere (where the United States is located), a home should face due south to receive the maximum exposure to solar energy.� This is hard to do because typically homes face the road, no matter what direction it may be.� So, a home that will take advantage of solar energy may take some planning!

| | |
| |D. |
| |Microwaves Heat A Pool Of Water Which Steams The Food (hence the steam that comes off food fresh out of the microwave) |
| | |

Correct! A microwave oven operates by bombarding your food with �micro waves.�� These waves excite the food molecules (particularly the water molecules in the food) giving them more movement and energy.� An increase in molecular movement and energy is equal to an increase in temperature. Microwaves can also be used as a secure communication device.

| | |
| |C. |
| |200 kW-hr |
| | |
| |D. |

| | |
| |B. |
| |Pine Trees |
| | |
| |C. |
| |Sunflowers |
| | |
| |D. |
| |Various Shrubs |
| | |

Correct! Deciduous trees are the best choice for maximizing the benefits of solar radiation.� In the summer months, these trees are full of foliage that provides shade from the rays, thus helping to cool the home.� In the winter months, deciduous trees lose their leaves.� This allows solar energy to reach the home, maximizing the benefit.

|10. |During the summer, the use of geothermal energy heat pump will produce air that is: |
| |[pic] |
| |A. |
| |Geothermal Heat Pumps Can Not Be Used During The Summer |
| | |
| |B. |
| |Approximately The Same Temerature As The Ambient Air |
| | |
| |C. |
| |Warmer Than The Ambient Air |
| | |
| |D. |
| |Cooler Than The Ambient Air |
| | |

Correct! A couple meters deep, the earth remains at a constant temperature (approximately 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit). During summer months, the ambient air is much warmer (typically 80 degrees Fahrenheit or more!). As a result, warm air can be circulated through the ground to cool it. It can also produce hot water for the house!

| |B. |
| |6.6 cents |
| | |
| |C. |
| |4.8 cents |
| | |
| |D. |
| |5.3 cents |
| | |

Correct! PA residents averaged 6.6 cents per kW-hr for electricity in 2000. This cost reflects a mix of nuclear, coal, and some renewable electricity generation.

| |It Creates Energy |
| | |
| |C. |
| |It Gives Off Heat |
| | |

|13. |Electricity generated from a coal fired power plant costs approximately 4¢ per kW-hr. Electricity generated from a |
| |farm of wind turbines costs approximately 9¢ per kW-hr. If a household chooses to purchase renewable electricity |
| |generated from the wind, how much more will it cost the family. Assume the during one year, then family consumes |

| |B. |
| |$900 |
| | |
| |C. |
| |$400 |
| | |
| |D. |

| |B. |
| |A Renewable Energy Source |
| | |
| |C. |
| |Heat Pump |
| | |
| |D. |
| |Low Energy Consumption Device |
| | |

Correct! An air conditioner operates by absorbing heat (from the room or vehicle) into a refrigerant fluid, then expelling the heat by compressing the fluid (now a gas) (typically outside) via a heat exchanger. Thus, an air conditioner is an example of a heat pump, as is a refrigerator.

| |B. |
| |Incandescent |
| | |
| |C. |

Correct! Most late model vehicles use either Halogen or Halogen/Xenon headlamps.� These lamps provide brighter light and illuminate more area that traditional headlights. In addition to the brighter light, a parabolic shaped is incorporated into the design so all of the light is concentrated at one focal point to produce a brighter beam.

How is light concentration using mirrors beneficial for such applications as collecting solar energy?
