Energy fight kinetic vs potential

whos going to win?!

Kinetic and potential......who will the audience like most!

Kinetic:


  • Is when you are moving
  • http://www.energy.gov.
  • Uses stored energy to move
  • It increases as the thing moves faster
  • Ex: a car driving
  • Ex2: a person walking to the couch
  • Ex3: water falling (rain)


Looks like we have a winner!

Looks like potential is LOSING!

Potential:


  • Is when you have the potential to move
  • http://www.energy.gov
  • It is stored energy waiting to be used
  • Almost looking like it moving but it not.....YET
  • Ex: a stretched rubber band
  • Ex2:a bird that's about to fly
  • Ex3:a remote that's about to fall off table
