Are kinetic energy and energy of motion the same thing?
Asked in Physics, Energy, Kinematics
Is energy in motion called kinetic energy?
Yes, Kinetic Energy is motion. When particles are warmed or heated they move faster, hit harder, and bump into each other more often. Or for example, friction creates heat when an object rubs against another very quickly. So if the kinetic energy is higher then there is a higher chance of heat production. A.K.A - Motion Energy in Motion is Kinetic Energy Its the same thing.

When does potential energy become kinetic electric energy?
well, first the potential energy has to become kinetic. this might happen when the force holding it in its position against a force trying to move it is stopped. so, now you have this... thing and it's moving. it becomes kinetic electric energy when the kinetic force of its motion is transfered. there are many different kinds of ways for this energy to be transfered, but lets say its an engine. the kinetic energy "flows" into a turbine, generating electricity. that is when kinetic energy becomes kinetic. it could also be friction... you use mechanical force to move your foot (kinetic energy) and that generates the static (electricity). this is a much simpler answer.... look into static energy for more detail on how this happens.

Asked in Meteorology and Weather
Is heat an invisible weightless fluid?
No, heat is energy contained in the disorganized motion of molecules. Take a gas for example. Molecules are moving around randomly, independent of any bulk motion. Temperature is a measure of average kinetic energy of the molecules. If heat is added the temperature goes up, so the average kinetic energy goes up. There's no separate thing that is heat.

What is potential and kinetic energy?
potential energy is stored energy before the object is put into motion the higher the object is at level the more potential energy their is ;kinetic is energy in motion it is when the object is released and put into motion that the potential energy drops and kinetic rises A thing which has energy due to its movement or motion has kinetic energy e .g a bullet emerging from a revolver. A thing which has energy due to its position has potential energy e.g. a ball 10 meters off the ground A Simpler Answer A boulder sitting on the edge of a cliff has potential energy. A boulder tumbling down the cliff has kinetic energy. In a wider sense....... Kinetic, of course, is meant as 'in motion'. So energy possessed by a material object when it is in motion is said to be kinetic energy. It is calculated by the formula 1/2 m v2 But potential is meant as the status or position. Potential energy is measured as the work performed in moving a unit mass from infinity to the specified position in the gravitational field. Same way, in case of electric field, electric potential energy is the work done in moving positive charge from infinity to the specified position in the electrical field. In the same manner, magnetic potential energy is the work done in moving magnetic pole from infinity to the specified position. Any way, the formula will be different in different fields. The familiar formula for potential energy viz 'mgh' is actually the potential energy difference not the potential energy at that height or position. Here the potential energy on the surface of the earth is taken to be Zero. But actually the potential energy for a mass 'm' on the surface of earth with mass 'M' and radius 'R' is given as GMm/R2.
