# Does potential energy increase when temperature increase?

If you refer to gravitational potential energy, the formula is:

PE = mgh

(mass x gravity x height).

As you can see, it is unrelated to temperature.

Temperature is directly proportional to kinetic energy (potential energy).eg. increase the temperature, you increase the kinetic energy of the molecules, hence you're increasing the potential energy of them.

the potential energy of an object does not have any relation with the temperature, the height of the object is the main factor effecting the potential energy.

When the temperature of a material increase, thermal energy is added to the material. It also increases the kinetic and potential energy of the particles. When the temperature reach the boiling or melting point, the kinetic energy stays the same, but the thermal energy and the potential energy still keeps adding and increasing. And when ONLY the potential energy increase, the state of the material changes from one to another.

It would depend. Within a system there can be isolated factors influencing different kinetic and potential energies. If the kinetic energy was increased (Let's say gravity), and a random object is pushed off of a table (Now potential energy), the potential energy would in fact be increased. This increase in energy is proportional in the potential and kinetic stages. If the temperature were increased and a "reaction" occurred the potential energy would go up.

We can increase the potential energy of an object by applying more energy on it

As we increase the altitude of the ball the potential energy increases.

Increase in potential energy = weight x increase in height

One possibility is that the temperature is absorbed by a change of phase - for example, when ice melts. This is an increase in potential energy. Of course, it is also possible for energy to drain off (the object cools down while energy is being supplied).

Potential Energy depends on mass and height to increase(: Hope that helps.MassHeight

On Earth, Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE) would increase with an increasing altitude.

Potential energy is vague, which consists of gravitational potential energy, chemical potential energy , etc. How to increase Gravtiational potential energy? Gravitational energy = mass x gravity constant x height looking at the equation, by increasing the height or increasing the mass. Chemical potential energy is basically stored energy, increasing the mass of the stored energy.

If the substance's temperature doesn't increase, it must be undergoing a phase change - such as when ice melts. In that case, the thermal energy is used up to increase the potential energy of the individual particles.

Increased mass and/or height increase potential energy.

As the kinetic energy of an object increases, its potential energy decreases.

During the time of change of state,the heat or temperature is used to increase the potential energy and there by change of state.This time there will be no change in temperature.

As an example, let's assume that ice melts. The energy of the substance increases. Note that ice at 0 &deg;C is converted into water, also at 0 &deg;C - the increase in energy is potential energy, NOT an increase in temperature, which is related to kinetic energy. This potential energy is related to the force it takes to break the bonds between molecules. The potential energy is again released as heat energy when the water freezes again.

because the kinetic energy of electron increase with increase in temperature. this increase in kinetic energy increase drift velocity

It is kinetic energy of individual moving particles. It could be considered potential though, as in: the body with higher temperature has a potential to do work, passing its thermal energy to lower temperature body.AnswerNeither, 'heat' is simply the name we give to energy in transit from a higher temperature to a lower temperature.

For example, in the case of gravitational potential energy, the formula is PE = mgh (the product of mass, gravity, height). Increase any of the three, and potential energy will increase.
