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.

Can an object have potential and kinetic energy at the same time?

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.


Can potential energy become 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.

What happens to the potential energy as the kinetic of an object increase?

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


How does increasing speed affect potential energy?

Increasing the speed will increase the KINETIC energy, not the potential energy. Of course, the potential energy may eventually be converted into kinetic energy, for example if the object moves upwards.


When the temperature of an object increase what happens to it potential energy?

the potential energy of an object does not have any relation with the temperature, the height of the object is the main factor effecting the potential energy.


Increasing the speed of an object does what to its potential energy?

The potential (kinetic) energy increases E = (m*v2)/2


How does gravitational potential energy of an object increase?

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


What is accomplished when an object is moved by a force?

When an object is moved by a force, work is done, increasing or decreasing its kinetic energy, often but not always decreasing or increasing its potential energy.



When an object has potential energy it has the potential to?

When an object has potential energy it has the energy to do work.


What happens to the kinetic energy of an object if the object is not moving?

The object's kinetic energy will be transformed to potential, or stored energy, when the object stops moving.


What happens when object gains energy?

kinetic energy turns into potential energy. kinetic energy is when or is a movement. potential energy is energy being stored


Potential energy is energy due to?

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.


How is energy preserved as an object falls?

Potential (gravitational) energy is transformed into kinetic energy. So, for instance, if you lift an object, you're storing energy which will act on the object once you let it go (increasing velocity).


Energy at a height is called what?

Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.



When Bruce lets go of the weight what happens to its energy?

When an object falls down, potential energy is converted to kinetic energy.


How does an object get gravitational potential energy?

An object gets gravitational potential energy by


Object hanging on a tree a kinetic or potential energy?

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


Why does mass and position effect potential energy?

Because the more mass there is in a an object, then the more potential energy there is. For example, a obese person would most likely decline to move, therefor increasing the potential energy. If the position is comfortable, then the potential energy will increase as well


Is potential energy an inanimate object or animate object?

potential energy is not an object; it is an idea that all objects have energy that can be released


What happens when an object at a high elevation loses height?

Loosing potential energy is stored as kinetic energy.


What happens to potential energy after it decreases?

The potential energy will have converted into some other kind of energy. For example, for an object in free fall, it converts to kinetic energy (the object moves faster); if there is some resistance, part of this energy will convert to heat.


As an object falls toward the ground what happens to the kinetic energy of the object?

As per the law of conservation of energy as the body approaches the ground its potential energy decreases and so that decrease would be available in the form of increased kinetic energy. So the speed of the body goes on increasing as it falls towards the ground.


The potential energy of a freely falling body decreases continuouslyWhat happens to the loss of potential energy?

It becomes kinetic energy. And as an object goes up against gravity, it gains potential energy and loses kinetic energy.
