kinetic energy vs potential energy

kinetic energy potential energy

Definitions

  • 1) physics The energy possessed by an object because of its motion, equal to one half the mass of the body times the square of its velocity.
  • 2) The energy possessed by a body because of its motion, equal to one half the mass of the body times the square of its velocity.
  • 3) the mechanical energy that a body has by virtue of its motion

Definitions

  • 1) the energy possessed by an object because of its position (in a gravitational or electric field), or its condition (as a stretched or compressed spring, as a chemical reactant, or by having rest mass)
  • 2) The energy of a particle or system of particles derived from position, or condition, rather than motion. A raised weight, coiled spring, or charged battery has potential energy.
  • 3) the mechanical energy that a body has by virtue of its position; stored energy
