Kinetic and potential energy

kinetic energy- energy of movement

Potential energy- the energy that is not in use
When he pulls back on the bow he is using energy to move it then when he lets go the energy is not in use anymore.

When objects are falling they don't use any energy because gravity pulls it down. When he is pushing a spring he is putting potential energy on it because it is compressing and there is pressure behind it.
