Which of the following correctly describes the type of energy produced by a hydroelectric power plant like Three Gorges Dam in China?
Like other hydroelectric dams, this one produces electricity (a form of potential energy) by taking advantage of kinetic gravitational energy.
Like other hydroelectric dams, this one produces electricity (a form of kinetic energy) by taking advantage of potential gravitational energy.
This dam produces more electricity than any other because it takes advantage of both potential electrical energy as well as potential chemical energy.
Like all power plants, this one uses potential chemical energy to produce kinetic electrical energy.
This dam produces electricity by harnessing both the power of water and of wind.
