What does an object have when moving that it doesn't have when at rest?
An object has kinetic energy when it is moving and not when it is at rest. When it is at rest it has potential energy. ...

What is the difference between a resting potential and an action potential?
When a neuron is at rest, it is called resting potential. When information is sent down on axon through neuron, it is called action potential. ...

The different charge between the outside and the inside of a neuron at rest is called?
Potential, ok well we all know it's a potential, but which one? Is it Action Potential, Synaptic Potential or Membrane Potential. Just saying Potential isn't saying much? ...

What is the factors that affect the potential energy?
Potential energy is that energy which exists in any stationery object. For suppose, is a ball is at rest, a force is applied on it , it starts moving. In this case, when the ball is at rest it has potential energy (Since it's in rest), and when a force is applied on it, it has gained kinetic energy (Since it's in motion). When an unbalanced force acts on a object, it can be one of the affect of the object. ...

What are some potential energy?
potential energy is when a object is in motion is stays in motion but when the object is in rest it stays at rest for in example A car parked at the top of a mount. is a example of potential energy ^^^ Kinetic energy is the energy of motion, for example any time something moves. Potential energy is stored, due to positioning, and is ready to be used. Let's say you're on the top of a hill. Due to your height,...
