What is the relationship between kinetic and potential energy?

Work The use of force to move an object over a distance. Formula: Force (N) x Distance (m) Formula: W=Fd

Energy The ability to do work or cause a change.

Potential Energy The stored energy that an object has due to its position, molecular arrangement, or chemical composition.

Kinetic Energy The energy of motion.

Gravity The force that pulls objects toward Earth’s surface. The force that objects exert on each other because of their masses.

Elastic Potential Energy Potential energy stored as a result of deformation of an elastic object, such as the stretching of a spring or a rubber band.

Gravitational Potential Energy Potential energy stored due to gravitational pull. Formula: GPE= weight (N) x height (m) GPE= mass x 9.8 m/s 2 x height GPE=mgh The unit for GPE is the joule.

Gravitational Acceleration Acceleration due to the pull of gravity. (9.8 m/s 2 )

Joules The unit used to measure energy and work. *One joule of work is done when a force of one newton moves an object one meter.

Newtons The SI unit for force. (N) *This is also the unit for weight.

Momentum A measure of mass in motion. Formula: mass x velocity p=mv

Velocity Speed in a specific direction. -Speed is a measure of how fast something moves through a particular distance over a definite time period. Formula: Speed = distance/time
