Potential and Kinetic Energy
Potential energy is stored energy that can be released and used. Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. Objects can change potential energy into kinetic energy and vice versa.

Potential and Kinetic Energy Introduction
Potential Energy is energy that is stored and is waiting to be released. It is the energy of position or the energy of condition.
Kinetic Energy is energy that is in motion. This energy is created by the movement of an object or particle.
Work is the transfer of energy from one object to another. Work is done when a force causes an object to move in the direction of the force.

Potential and Kinetic Energy Word Math
The adjective kinetic has its roots in the Greek word kinesis, meaning "motion"
The word “energy” comes from the Greek enérgeia
potential means having or showing the capacity to become or develop into something in the future

Did you know?
Potential energy can be converted to kinetic energy and vice versa. This is called the conservation of energy. The energy of a moving object is called kinetic energy and is directly proportional to its mass and the square of its velocity. The energy of an object due to its position or shape is called potential energy. Potential energy is stored energy that can be released in the future, such as a roller coaster car at the top of a hill.
