Wil kinetic energy increase or decrease based on the amount of potential energy it starts with??

If potential energy is lost, KEnergy increases.

Potential Energy + kinetic energy= constant.

• Science -

kinetic energy is the energy that you use when an object is consistantly moving. for example wind is a kinetic energy because it is consistantly moving around or it has been moved.
