By Hunter Hammond

Kinetic Energy

the energy of a body or a system with respect to the motion of the body or of the particles in the system.

Potential Energy

the energy of an object or a system due to the position of the body or the arrangement of the particles of the system.

Sub Types of Potential Energy

Chemical Potential Energy

a form of potential energy that can be absorbed or released during a chemical reaction

Elastic Potential Energy

potential mechanical energy stored in the configuration of a material or physical system as work is performed to distort its volume or shape.

Gravitational Potential Energy

the potential energy associated with gravitational force, as work is required to elevate objects against Earth's gravity.
