This entertaining song outlines various types of energy but also states the law of conservation of energy.

Below you are asked to complete the table, which looks at examples of stored energy and how it is activated.


1. Measure a standing jump off two legs. Where has the energy come from (i.e. what is the potential energy?). What is the kinetic energy

2. Now, to do this again but first stand on a chair, drop to the ground and bounce off the ground and complete a two legged jump. What is the potential energy for this? Was the jump longer or shorter than the first? Why?
