Kinetic Energy  

Kinetic energy is energy that is being used by a body, an example kinetic energy would be a ball bouncing.

Potential Energy

Potential energy is energy that is waiting to be used, an example of that would be a car that is parked on a downward hill.

As the ride swings up and stops at the top it accumulates potential energy and then when it swings down the energy transfers into kinetic energy as it is in mid swing.
