potential energy is not a substance. it is like if you fall out a window, your body has "potential energy" when you hit the ground that potential energy is converted into kinetic energy.. hope this helps you understand...

### Is the energy acquired by a body because of its motion is called potential energy?

No, energy created from movement is called Kineticenergy. Potential energy is energy created from no moving sources.

### How does the law of the conservation of energy pertain to kinetic and potential energy?

The Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy can not be created or destroyed, it can only be transformed. So, kinetic energy is not created, it is transformed from potential energy, and vice versa.

### What energy is stored in a stretched rubber band?

If you stretch a rubber band you have created tension, and therefore strain energy. If you stretch a rubber band you have created tension, and therefore strain energy. Latent energy. Potential energy

### when a dog sleeping which energy potential enrgy or kinetic?

potential energy is the energy created due to stress on an object, Kinetic energy is the energy an object possess due to its motion, so a dog sleeping has neither of both.

### Is chemical energy kinetic energy or potential energy?

It is a form of potential energy.

### What energy is created into jumping off a trampoline?

Gravitational Potential

### How is potential energy created in a chemical cell?

potential energy is created by separating charges with chemical reactions so that one terminal is negatively charged, while the other terminal becomes positively charged.

### What is a good hypothesis for the question how will the stretch of the rubber band effect the potential energy created?

If the rubber band stretch increases, then the potential energy will increase. Or: If the rubber band stretch decreases, then the potential energy will decrease.

### What does the law of consevation of energy explain?

Energy can not be created or destroyed, simply changed from one form into another E.g. A falling object loses potential energy but in the process gains potential energy

### Is gravatational energy kinetic or potential energy?

Gravatational and Potential Energys are the same, they simply both have the potential to fall (its higher up) and Kintic Energy is was is created when for example a roller coaster moves?! I has Kinetic Energy and some is lost throughout sound and heat as thats is another type pf energy that is created when a roller coaster moves.
