**Potential and Kinetic Energy**

2
**How is all energy divided?**

Potential Energy Kinetic Energy Gravitation Potential Energy Elastic Chemical

3
**What is Potential Energy?**

Energy that is stored and waiting to be used later

4
**What is Gravitational Potential Energy?**

Potential energy due to an object’s position P.E. = mass x height x gravity Don’t look down, Rover! Good boy!

5
**What is Elastic Potential Energy?**

Potential energy due compression or expansion of an elastic object. Notice the ball compressing and expanding

6
**What is Chemical Potential Energy?**

Potential energy stored within the chemical bonds of an object

7
**What is Kinetic Energy? Energy an object has due to its motion**

K.E. = 1/2mv2

8
**Kinetic Energy Depends on 2 factors**

Mass and Velocity If Dino and the car have the same velocity, which has the greater KE? If the trucks have the same mass, which one has greater KE?

9
**Which factor has the greater impact on KE?**

Think about the formula!! Velocity has greater influence because it is SQUARED in the formula!!

10
Energy is Conserved!

12
**The total amt of energy remains constant!!**

KE i + PE i = KE f + PE f

14
**TME = KE + PE Mechanical Energy**

The total amount of KE and PE is referred to as the total MECHANICAL ENERGY of an object. TME = KE + PE

15
**There are other forms of energy.**
