Potential Energy And Kinetic Energy

  1. In physics, potential energy is the energy stored in an object due to its position in a force field or in a system due to its configuration.

Example:

A car parked at the top of a hill

A boulder sitting at the top of a mountain.

Water behind a dam

2. In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion.

Example:

Visible light

X-rays

Gamma rays
