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

## Related Questions As the kinetic energy of an object increases, its potential energy decreases. 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, an object must be moving to have kinetic energy. If something is stationary at the top of a hill, it has potential energy, but no kinetic energy. The sum of kinetic energy and potential energy for an object is constant. The name for the combination of the kinetic and potential energy of an object is heat. potential energy is the energy that an object has stored up. kinetic energy is an object in motion. :) hi ppl :))))))) The total kinetic and potential energy of the molecules of an object is thermal energy. 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. Sure. This happens when an object falls down. Its potential energy will decrease, and its kinetic energy increases.Sure. This happens when an object falls down. Its potential energy will decrease, and its kinetic energy increases.Sure. This happens when an object falls down. Its potential energy will decrease, and its kinetic energy increases.Sure. This happens when an object falls down. Its potential energy will decrease, and its kinetic energy increases. Potential energy is the energy an object has because of its position or shape. Kinetic energy is the energy an object has because it is moving. Potential energy is when an object is at rest, and kinetic energy is when an object is in motion. So, the object would just have to be put in motion to change from potential energy to kinetic energy. The difference between potential and kinetic energy all comes down to a very simple property of the object. If an object is moving, then it has kinetic energy, or kinetic energy is the energy of movement. Potential energy is energy that is stored in an object and can be released under the right conditions. At greatest potential energy an object has no kinetic energy. An objects energy is preserved, so as an object drops it will lose the same amount of potential energy as it gains in kinetic energy. Mechanical energy is kinetic or potential energy associated with the motion and position of an object. kinetic energy is the energy possessed by an object by virtue of its motion. potential energy is the energy possessed by an object by virtue of its position. no, it's like when an object is hanging waiting to fall. It hasn't used energy but has the potential to (when it falls), and when it is in action it's called kinetic energy. Mechanical energy is defined as the SUM of potential energy plus kinetic energy. If all of its mechanical energy is potential energy, it follows that it has no kinetic energy. 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 A picture hanging on the wall has potential energy. If it comes loose, it will fall, converting the potential energy to kinetic energy. An objects total kinetic and potential energy is when both things are moving (kinetic) and the energy is stored in the object (potential) When the object moves, its potential energy is converted into kinetic energy.   Kinetic energy is the motion of an object (real). Potential energy is a measure of the kinetic energy an object WOULD have if it were to be released and allowed to fall. Potential energy is energy that is stored. Kinetic energy is energy that is released. Kinetic energy comes from the energy that is stored in potential energy and then released to become kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is moving energy, or the energy possessed by an object in motion. Potential energy is the the energy possessed by an object that may be converted into another form of energy or work.
