What's the difference between kinetic and potential energy?

  • Science 8R - help -

    I suggest you review the definitions, which are easily found online, or your text, if you have one
    .
    Briefly, kinetic energy depends upon mass and speed.
    Potential energy depends upon the work required to place an object at a particular location. Lifting an object in a gravitational field increases its potential energy.
