What are some similarities between kinetic and potential energy?


Kinetic and potential energy shares several similarities. Kinetic energy is possessed by a body through use of its movement. For example, a baseball player propels the baseball across great distances by swinging a bat at it, which is an example of kinetic energy. Potential energy is not affected by its surroundings, however. That same baseball player has no kinetic energy with a car that speeds past him. Similarly, they are both measured in Joules (J). Mass is a determining factor for both forms of energy.

The energy upward is kinetic energy while the energy downward is kinetic. But when time is decreased kinetic and potential energy increases.
Kinetic energy is the extra energy it has due to its motion. It is the work required to move an object from rest to its current velocity. Potential energy is the energy stored in
The Law of Conservation of Energy states that the sum of PE and KE must remain the same at all times. So, one can surmise that they are opposite forms of energy. KE is energy that
Potential energy is the energy stored within an object. An illustration of potential energy is stretching a rubber band. Stretching the rubber band builds up energy, preparing it
