1
Potential & Kinetic Energy

2
Energy The ability to do work The ability to cause matter to move The ability to cause matter to change Measured in joules & calories

3
Types of Energy Radiant (light, electromagnetic) Nuclear (atomic) Mechanical Heat (thermal) Sound Chemical You will see other types or forms of energy in books and on the Internet

4
Energy can be divided into two general categories: Potential Kinetic

5
Potential Energy Stored energy Energy of position The amount of usable energy in a body at rest Sometimes called GRAVITATIONAL POTENTIAL ENERGY

6
Potential Energy Can be calculated mathematically PE = (weight) (height)

7
Potential energy can be increased by: Increasing height Increasing mass

8
Example

9
Kinetic Energy Energy of motion Energy an object has because it is moving

10
Kinetic Energy Can be calculated mathematically KE = (mass x velocity2)/2

11
Kinetic energy can be increased by: Increasing mass Increasing speed
