Look at the other three videos in order. Sorry I had to split them up!

Potential Energy

Potential energy is associated with an object that has the potential to move because of its position relative to some other location. Unlike kinetic energy, potential energy depends not only on the properties of an object, but also on the object's interaction with its environment.

Gravitational Potential Energy

Gravitational potential energy is the the energy associated with an object due to the object's position relative to a gravitational source. It depends on height from a zero level.

Elastic Potential Energy

Elastic potential energy is stored in any compressed or stretched object, such as a spring or the stretched strings of a tennis racket or guitar.

Transformation of Energy

The law that states energy can change into another form of energy.
