Potential energy is stored energy that can be released to do work. Examples include a stretched rubber band, a coiled spring, or a charged battery. Kinetic energy is energy of motion. Examples include a ball rolling down a hill, water flowing down a river, or a car accelerating. The two types of energy can be converted from one to the other. For example, when a roller coaster car is released, potential energy is converted to kinetic energy.
Potential Energy vs Kinetic Energy

Potential energy is energy stored in an object due to the position or shape of the object. It is the energy an object has because of its position in a force field, such as gravity or electrical. Kinetic energy is energy possessed by an object because of its motion. It is the energy an object has because of its motion or movement. The law of conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one form to another. This means that the total amount of energy in a system remains constant.

Potential energy is the energy stored within a system due to its configuration or location, while kinetic energy is the energy of an object due to its motion. Potential energy can be converted into kinetic energy, and vice versa. Potential energy can also be converted into other forms of energy, such as electrical energy and thermal energy.

Question: You were given a challenge to explain the difference between potential energy and kinetic energy to your classmates. How would you do this? Clues: • Potential energy is energy that is stored in an object due to its position or composition. • Kinetic energy is energy due to an object's movement. • Remember to think of examples that are easy to visualize and understand. In pairs: Select and solve one of the tasks: A. Create a drawing to illustrate the differences between potential and kinetic energy. B. Create a card game to help your classmates understand the differences between potential and kinetic energy.
