potential energy is not an object; it is an idea that all objects have energy that can be released

The noun 'body' may be a word for an animate or an inanimate thing, depending on context; for example:the body of a human = animatethe body of an animal = animatethe body of a legislature or a committee = animatethe body of a letter = inanimatethe body of a report = inanimatea dead body = inanimate

If your hair is attached to you and you are an animate object than no but if your hair was not attached to you (fell out) than I guess it would be inanimate. :)

An animate object is anything living ex. an animal, a person, a plant etc. An inanimate object is anything without life ex. a baseball bat, a fork, a lamp etc.

When an object has potential energy it has the energy to do work.

Potential energy refers to the energy stored in an object. An object has potential energy if it has height. An example that gives potential energy to an object is gravity.

usually animate and inanimate describes things that are living. i wouldn't necessarily consider water to be living. water isn't an object. it's a form of matter. it's a liquid. the result of a combination of elements.

Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.

Potential energy is the energy contained in the position of an object, so object hanging on a tree would be potential energy.

the higher an object is the more potential energy it has

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

all objects do have energy it is all a question of which type you have potential; energy and kinetic energy potential energy is like stored energy and the object is known to have the potential to do work wher as kinetic energy is the energy an object has due to the motion of the object

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.

Any object that is in a raised position has gravitational potential energy.Any object that is in a raised position has gravitational potential energy.Any object that is in a raised position has gravitational potential energy.Any object that is in a raised position has gravitational potential energy.

it can be, or it can't be. everything you know about is made of matter both rocks and air and water and animals are matter therefore, matter is made of both living and nonliving things matter can be inanimate or animate

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

the energy in an object about to fall is potential energy then kinetic energy because when the object is not falling, it has potential energy but when it's actually falling, it has kinetic energy.

Yes. The energy of lifting is added to the object as potential energy. If the lifted object is then released, it will fall, and the potential energy will become kinetic energy.

Gravitational potential energy is the potential energy an object has due to its position in a gravitational field. The higher an object is the greater its gravitational potential. When it falls the gravitational potential becomes kinetic energy. Energy stored in height differences ~APEX

Yes. When an object speeds up, it has increasing kinetic energy and decreasing potential energy. When an object slows down, it has decreasing kinetic energy and increasing potential energy.

Yes. Potential energy is essentially stored energy, so an object on a shelf would have it.

When mass of object is doubled, then the potential energy will also double.
