Is it true mechanical energy is a form of potential energy?

Mechanical energy is the sum of potential and kinetic energy present in the components of a mechanical system.


If an object's mechanical energy is equal to its potential energy how much kinetic energy does it have?

Mechanical Energy= Potential energy+ Kinetic energy, so for the mechanical energy to be equal to be potential energy, the kinetic energy must be 0.


How electricity convert in to mechanical energy?

Well, electricity energy is an energy source. Mechanical energy is the energy of potential energy and kinetic energy. A machine that runs on electricity and uses mechanical energy as a result is the conversion. When energy is converted, a small part is converted into thermal energy, or heat energy. Electricity is also a type of potential energy, because it is stored energy.


Why energy stored in green plants is classified as potential energy?

The energy stored in plants is classified as potential energy because they convert light energy into chemical potential energy stored in glucose.
