Potential & Kinetic energy

About potential & kinetic energy and where it can be found.

What they are.

Potential energy is energy that is stored. Kinetic energy is the energy that is doing all the work.


Kinetic energy #1

In this picture there is a bike. The kinetic energy is in the chain. With out the chain the wheels would not beable to move.


Kinetic energy #2

In this picture their firecrackers. The powder in there is potential energy until the fuse reaches it. Ones that happens the powder is lit and explodes.


Kinetic energy #3

The kinetic energy is in the the thrust. Whene the fuel is ignited it is turned into kinetic energy and fuels the plane to push it through the air.
