Its potential energy will decrease, and its kinetic 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. 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.  kinetic energy turns into potential energy. kinetic energy is when or is a movement. potential energy is energy being stored Yes -- If an object is directed upwards, its kinetic energy will decrease and its potential energy will increase until its kinetic energy is 0, at which point it will begin to fall downward, making its potential energy become kinetic again. When potential energy goes up kinetic energy comes down sorder like a rollercoaster  When the temperature of a material increase, thermal energy is added to the material. It also increases the kinetic and potential energy of the particles. When the temperature reach the boiling or melting point, the kinetic energy stays the same, but the thermal energy and the potential energy still keeps adding and increasing. And when ONLY the potential energy increase, the state of the material changes from one to another.  Its potential energy increases, while its kinetic energy decreases. At the top of its trajectory, its kinetic energy become 0, and its potential energy is maximum. As it drops, its potential energy is converted back into kinetic energy.   When the ball falls down, the potential energy decreases (potential energy is greater at a greater height), but the kinetic energy (energy due to movement) will increase. As an object falls from a higher level to a lower level, the gravitational potential energy that it had at the higher level changes to kinetic energy. As more and more potential energy changes to more and more kinetic energy, the increase of kinetic energy shows up in the form of greater speed. If potential energy increases, then kinetic energy decreases. If potential energy decreases, then kinetic energy increases. This is because of the total mechanical energy, which is potential energy + kinetic energy. If one increases/decreases, then the other has to do the opposite in order to conserve the total mechanical energy. kinetic energy is movement energy potential energy is energy that could be turned into energy When a ball falls, its potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. When an object falls down, potential energy is converted to kinetic energy. 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. 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.  ###### PhysicsKinematicsEnergyScience Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
