# What affects potential energy?

###### Wiki User

Temperature is directly proportional to kinetic energy (potential energy).

eg. increase the temperature, you increase the kinetic energy of the molecules, hence you're increasing the potential energy of them.

It doesn't. Increasing speed affects the KINETIC energy.

Gravity affects potential energy because if you hold something in place and you let go then, it will drop because of gravitys force of pulling it down.

It's really the other way round - force affects potential energy. Potential energy is the RESULT (not the cause) of a force being required to move something - for instance, against the force of gravity or an electric field.

Well, the most potential energy is when your going slow or your stopped. The most kinetic energy is like at the bottom of a hill over the first hump in a rollarcoaster, when your going your fastest. Your speed and probably friction will affect it.

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.

If potential energy is not converted into kinetic energy (or into any other type of energy) then it remains potential. Potential energy does not expire.
