When a battery for a cordless drill is left unused until it no longer provides any power and then is recharged to full power, which of the following is a LEAST likely description of this scenario?
Heat and work energy was performed by the battery, resulting in a dead battery that had to be recharged.
The amount of heat energy lost by the unused battery is equal to the sum of the work and heat energy absorbed by the battery when it is recharged.
The energy absorbed by the battery when it is recharged is in the form of work and heat energy.
Recharging a battery is the result of reversing a redox reaction.
