How does a Rube Goldberg work?
Or in the Ok Go video, the tire at the top of the ramp has potential energy because gravity is pulling on it. When the bucket hits the tire is transfers its kinetic energy to the tire and at the same time the tire's potential energy transforms to kinetic energy. Potential energy is the stored energy in an object either because of its position (way up high on a shelf or on the edge of a table, for example) or state (like an electric charge in a battery). Kinetic energy is the energy an object has when it is moving (like a moving car or a falling leaf).
