That's called kinetic energy. The formula is: Kinetic energy = (1/2) x mass x velocity2. If mass is in kilograms, and velocity (or speed, really) in meters per second, the energy will be in Joules.

it has both potential and kinetic energies as when it is going upwards, the potential energy increases while the kinetic energy decreases until it reaches the top, and then the kinetic energy is zero and the potential energy is maximum.

If the first object is just sitting there and not moving, then it has zero kinetic energy.

Most of the kinetic energy will have turned into potential energy - all of it, if there is no friction.Most of the kinetic energy will have turned into potential energy - all of it, if there is no friction.Most of the kinetic energy will have turned into potential energy - all of it, if there is no friction.Most of the kinetic energy will have turned into potential energy - all of it, if there is no friction.

a moving car has kinetic energy which is defined by the equation "Kinetic Energy = (1/2) X Mass (Kilograms) X (Velocity (m/s))2

If a cat that has a mass of 4.50 kilograms sits on a ledge that is 0.800 meters above ground and it jumps down to the ground, it will have a specific amount of kinetic energy just as it reaches the ground. In this instance, the answer would be 35.3J.

kinetic energy is 78.4 J.

The basketball's kinetic energy begins to turn into potential energy as it reaches the basket.

Kinetic energy is dependent on which point you are talking about. When it is about to be dropped, kinetic energy is zero. When it reaches almost hits the ground, there is maximum kinetic energy.

It has no more kinetic energy

Before a yo yo is released, it has maximum potential energy and zero kinetic energy. As the yo yo goes down the string, its kinetic energy increases and it potential energy decreases. When the yo yo reaches the bottom of the string it has maximum kinetic energy and zero potential energy. As the yo yo goes back up the string, its kinetic energy decreases and potential energy increases until the yo yo reaches the top of the string, at which point kinetic energy is zero and potential energy is at its maximum.
