Eva is in a closed, dark room. She uses her arm muscles to turn on a lamp. When she moves her hand closer to the lamp, the light heats her hand. The light bounces off the pages of a book and into her eyes. If this room is a closed system, what happens to the total amount of energy in the room? A. It remains constant. B. It decreases. C. It increases. D. It increases, then decreases.

Even if the room is a closed system, i think energy is getting in to the room trough the lamp, since i guess the source of electric power is not inside the room.... with this assumtion made... energy increases at least until she turns the lamp off :)

Since the room is a closed system, no energy can escape from inside the room and no energy can enter from outside the room. Since, the lamp is inside the room and is constantly emitting energy in form of heat and light and no energy can escape outside, the energy inside the room will continue increasing.
