It's internal energy if the object is microscopic and thermodynamic or mechanical energy if it's macroscopic.

Amount of kinetic and potential energy of an object?

Mechanical Energy :)


How is kinetic energy and greatest potential energy related?

At greatest potential energy an object has no kinetic energy. An objects energy is preserved, so as an object drops it will lose the same amount of potential energy as it gains in kinetic energy.


Can the amount of kinetic energy exceed the amount of potential energy stored in an object?

yes, in fact potential energy is zero when kinetic energy is at its maximum, however kinetic energy and potential energy together will always equal the total energy. Therefore kinetic energy will equal total energy-potential energy and potential energy will equal total energy-kinetic energy


What is amount of energy an object has in it?

It is the sum of the potential and kinetic energies


What is the amount of work an object can do because of the kinetic and potential energies of the object?

Mechanical Energy :)

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.


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 an object have potential energy and not have kinetic energy?

Yes, an object must be moving to have kinetic energy. If something is stationary at the top of a hill, it has potential energy, but no kinetic energy.


What two things do potential and kinetic energy need to gain more energy?

Well, basically, the higher an object is above the ground, the more potential energy it has. For kinetic energy, the amount of energy depends on the amount of force.


How are potential and kinetic energy alike?

The sum of kinetic energy and potential energy for an object is constant.


What is the combinatoin of all the kinetic and potential energy of an object?

The name for the combination of the kinetic and potential energy of an object is heat.


How is potential and kinetic energy used?

potential energy is the energy that an object has stored up. kinetic energy is an object in motion. :) hi ppl :)))))))


The total kinetic and potential energy of the molecules of an object is know as?

The total kinetic and potential energy of the molecules of an object is thermal energy.


What is the energy in an object about to fall?

the energy in an object about to fall is potential energy then kinetic energy because when the object is not falling, it has potential energy but when it's actually falling, it has kinetic 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.

In science what is potential and kinetic energy?

Potential energy is the energy an object has because of its position or shape. Kinetic energy is the energy an object has because it is moving.


How does energy change from potenial energy to kinetic energy?

Potential energy is when an object is at rest, and kinetic energy is when an object is in motion. So, the object would just have to be put in motion to change from potential energy to kinetic energy.


Compare potential and kinetic energy?

The difference between potential and kinetic energy all comes down to a very simple property of the object. If an object is moving, then it has kinetic energy, or kinetic energy is the energy of movement. Potential energy is energy that is stored in an object and can be released under the right conditions.


The kinetic or potential energy associated with the motion and position of an object is?

Mechanical energy is kinetic or potential energy associated with the motion and position of an object.


Explain Kinetic and Potential energy?

kinetic energy is the energy possessed by an object by virtue of its motion. potential energy is the energy possessed by an object by virtue of its position.


If an object mechanical energy is equal to its potential energy how much kinetic energy does the object have?

Mechanical energy is defined as the SUM of potential energy plus kinetic energy. If all of its mechanical energy is potential energy, it follows that it has no kinetic energy.


Can an object have energy?

all objects do have energy it is all a question of which type you have potential; energy and kinetic energy potential energy is like stored energy and the object is known to have the potential to do work wher as kinetic energy is the energy an object has due to the motion of the object


What is an objects total kinetic and potential energy?

An objects total kinetic and potential energy is when both things are moving (kinetic) and the energy is stored in the object (potential)


How does gravitational potential engergy change into kinetic energy?

When the object moves, its potential energy is converted into kinetic energy.
