  • Q:

    At a hydroelectric plant, a falling fluid turns a turbine. The moving turbine is used to run electric generators. Given this scenario, which of the following is true?

     

    A

    The magnitude of the electrical energy produced is equal to the magnitude of the gravitational potential energy released by the falling fluid.

    B

    The magnitude of the electrical energy produced is less than the magnitude of the gravitational potential energy released by the falling fluid.

    C

    The magnitude of the electrical energy produced is greater than the magnitude of the gravitational potential energy released by the falling fluid.

    D

    The answer cannot be determined from the given information.
