What is kinetic energy?

Energy that is in motion, being used currently.

Conservation of energy

What is it?

In physics, the law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of anisolated system cannot change—it is said to be conserved over time. Energy can be neither created nor destroyed, but can change form, for instance chemical energycan be converted to kinetic energy in the explosion of a stick of dynamite.
