Kinetic Energy
energy that is in motion. Moving
water and wind are good examples When it is on its way up, it is
of kinetic energy. Electricity is also using kinetic energy since the
kinetic energy because even though energy is in motion. When it
you can't see it happen, electricity reaches the top it has potential
involves electrons moving in (or stored) energy. When it
conductors. goes down the hill it is using
kinetic energy again.
Potential Energy
Energy is measured in the amount of "work" it does. Potential
Energy is stored energy. Examples of potential energy are oil
sitting in a barrel, or water in a lake in the mountains. This
energy is referred to as potential energy, because if it were
released, it would do a lot of work.
