# Potential energy is energy due to?

001 ###### 2014-08-22 17:42:26

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.

## Related Questions All kinetic energy is due to potential energy, and since mecanical energy tecnically is kinetic energy, your answer is potential eneergy. Potential energy is due to the height.And kinetic energy is due to motion.So if anything is at some height it will have potential energy and when anything is in motion it will have kinetic energy. Potential energy is the energy that an object has due to its position in a force field or that a system has due to the configuration of its parts hence cannot be a potential energy. No , it won't have potential energy. Potential energy is due to height. The definition of Gravitational potential energy is In physics, potential energy is the energy stored in a body or in a system due to its position in a force field or due to its configuration Potential Energy is at rest and Kinetic Energy is in motion, but it is still the same energy.kinetic energy arises due to the motion of particles while potential energy is due to the position of particles. Gravitational potential energy due to altitude and elastic potential energy stored in a spring Potential energy is energy a body has due to its position. Kinetic energy is energy a body has due to its motion. Kinetic energy is due to the motion of an object and is a vector energy. Potential energy is due to something's position or state and is a scalar energy. Heat energy is different from potential energy. Heat energy provides warmth and potential energy is due to height. energy due to motion = kinetic energy energy due to position = potential energy Potential energy is the energy possessed by an object due to its position . Examples of potential energy are gravitational, chemical and electrical. Potential energy is the energy due to position of a body in a force field. There is a type of potential energy called Chemical Potential energy for example energy stored in fuels. Energy which is gained by a body due to its position is known as potential energy   No, potential energy is stored energy. Kinetic energy is the energy in an object due to it's motion. Potential energy is stored energy. Kinetic energy is the energy an object has due to it's motion.  Potential energy and gravitational potential energy are different from each other ."Potential energy is the ability of a body to do work." Anddue_to_its_height.%22">"Gravitational potential energy is the ability of a body to do work due to its height."Gravitational potential energy is a type of potential energy. Potential energy. Potential energy is the energy a body possesses while at rest. Kinetic energy is the energy a body possesses due to its motion.  I would have gravitational potential energy, which is energy due to height. yes. For ex. Gravitational potential energy is caused by height. When potential energy and kinetic energy are combined it is called mechanical energy. Mechanical energy is the energy that is possessed by an object due to its motion or due to its position. Mechanical energy can be either kinetic energy (energy of motion) or potential energy (stored energy of position).
