What is Potencial energy?
Potential Energy is exactly as it sounds, right now, i am using my potential Energy to use chemical energy stored in my body and converting it into kinetic energy to type this sentence, i am also using potential energy in converting chemical energy again into electrical energy in my brain to think about what i am typing. potential energy is when energy is stored somewhere in some form for release... a stone lying on the floor has very little or no potential energy, if i pick it up i have just loaded it with the potential energy that it will emit when i drop it in the form of kinetic (because it moves) and Sound Energy (because it'll make a noise when it hits the floor) and trace amounts of heat energy because of friction ect...Hope that helps
OK...well i think it is chemical.....idk why i just think so because on my paper its is the same question but it true or false ....it says" THE POTENTIAL ENERGY STORED WITHIN CHEMICAL BONDS IS CALLED CHEMICAL ENERGY.. I AM IN 6TH GRADE AND THIS IS A QUESTION ON MY WINTER SCIENCE PACKET.... :*( I PUT TRUE SO TELL ME IF IT IS RIGHT BEFORE TOMMAROW
