We can increase the potential energy of an object by applying more energy on it

The summation of kinetic energy and potential energy is constant.

It would depend. Within a system there can be isolated factors influencing different kinetic and potential energies. If the kinetic energy was increased (Let's say gravity), and a random object is pushed off of a table (Now potential energy), the potential energy would in fact be increased. This increase in energy is proportional in the potential and kinetic stages. If the temperature were increased and a "reaction" occurred the potential energy would go up.

As we increase the altitude of the ball the potential energy increases.

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.

Increase in potential energy = weight x increase in height

Kinetic energy of an object increases as potential energy DECREASES. Other than that, any other correlations would depend upon the object, it's mass, and it's acceleration.

On Earth, Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE) would increase with an increasing altitude.

Potential energy is vague, which consists of gravitational potential energy, chemical potential energy , etc. How to increase Gravtiational potential energy? Gravitational energy = mass x gravity constant x height looking at the equation, by increasing the height or increasing the mass. Chemical potential energy is basically stored energy, increasing the mass of the stored energy.

Increased mass and/or height increase potential energy.

As the kinetic energy of an object increases, its potential energy decreases.

An object's potential energy doesn't depend on its speed. You can do anything you like with the object's speed, and it has no effect on potential energy.

The position of an object determines it's potential energy. Using an unstretched spring as a reference position, a stretched spring has potential energy.

For example, in the case of gravitational potential energy, the formula is PE = mgh (the product of mass, gravity, height). Increase any of the three, and potential energy will increase.

The higher the diving board, the more increase of potential energy.

If he climbs up the stairs, his potential energy will increase.

One can move the object in the negative direction of a gravitational force to increase its gravitational potential energy.If the object is elastic, you can deform the object under tension or compression (stress) to increase its elastic potential energy.If the object holds a magnetic charge you can increase its electrodynamic potential energy by subjecting it to a stronger magnetic field.If the object holds a static charge, one can increase the amount of charged electric particles (static) to increase electrostatic potential energy, also known as electric potential.One can heat an object to increase its thermal potential energy.One can slow an object down to increase it's rest mass energy (also potential)One can introduce charged leptons or down-type quarks into an atom, which by emitting W and Z bosons can increase the weak forces, which will increase nuclear potential forces of an atom (bit of a stretch)

Potential energy is the energy required to move something against a conservative force - or to keep it there. To increase potential energy, you have to push something against a conservative force. For instance, in the case of gravitational potential energy, push something up.

Mass, Height, and Gravity Gravitational Potential Energy= Mass * gravity * height

An object's potential energy doesn't depend on its speed. You can do anything you like with the object's speed, and it has no effect on potential energy.
