Kinetic vs Potential Energy

The battle for the best energy

Lets start with potential energy. Potential energy is something that has the potential to move but it is not. Kinetic is when something is moving. Let me tell you some examples. When a football is placed on a tee it is potential energy, when the football has been kicked then it is kinetic energy.
Now do you get the difference between potential and kinetic energy? I hope so. Remember that potential energy is something that has the potential to move but is not, and kinetic energy is something that is moving.
