What is an example of kinetic energy?

Answer

Because any moving thing or object has kinetic energy, there are many examples of this energy type, including a ball dropping into water, a car in motion and a moving arrow. However, there are different types or forms of kinetic energy.

The three types of kinetic energy are vibrational motion, translational motion and rotational motion. A flywheel is an example of rotational kinetic energy and a car moving in a straight line down a road is an example of translational kinetic energy. Some examples of vibrational kinetic energy are a vibrating cell phone, tuning forks and a bobblehead doll. These objects oscillate back and forth.
