KE, PE, and Conservation of Energy



1. KE- energy that a body possesses by virtue of being in motion. / 2. PE- the energy possessed by a body by virtue of its position relative to others, stresses within itself, electric charge, and other factors. / 3. Conservation of Energy- a principle stating that energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can be altered from one form to another.



An example of kinetic energy is a girl riding her bike! An example of potential energy is a bow and arrow! Last but not least, and an example for Conservation of Energy is heat, light, and/or fireworks.
