### Does the sun have kinetic or potential energy?

potential energy i think

### As a planet approaches perihelion does it potential energy increase or decrease?

At perihelion, the planet is closer to the Sun, and moves faster, that means that the potential energy is at a minimum, and the kinetic energy at a maximum. The sum of kinetic + potential energy, of course, remains constant.At perihelion, the planet is closer to the Sun, and moves faster, that means that the potential energy is at a minimum, and the kinetic energy at a maximum.

### What energy does the sun have?

mechanical, potential, kinetic, nuclear and thermal

### What type of energy is possessed by a planet revolving around sun?

It is a combination of kinetic energy, and potential energy. Kinetic energy is related to the planet's movement; and the farther away a planet is from the Sun, the greater its potential energy.

### Is sun a potential energy or kinetic energy?

No, Sun light rays are neither of these things. The light of the Sun is electromagnetic energy.

kinetic

### Is a Sun light rays kinetic or potential energy?

No, Sun light rays are neither of these things. The light of the Sun is electromagnetic energy.

### Is hydroeletric energy kinetic or potential?

Potential energy (turned into kinetic energy to drive the turbines), (turned into electrical energy by the turbines). Note the original source of this energy is the Sun (nuclear fusion).

### Where does the kinetic chemical electrical and heat energy comes from?

heat is from the sun and kinetic is transformed from potential energy and chemical energy is from weathering of nature in the crust

### What are the two types of mechanical energy?

Potential energy and kinetic energy. mechanical energy is the energy of motion(kinetic energy)or the potential of motion(potential energy) so i would say-kinetic and potential energy
