## Related Questions We can increase the potential energy of an object by applying more energy on it As the kinetic energy of an object increases, its potential energy decreases. the potential energy of an object does not have any relation with the temperature, the height of the object is the main factor effecting the potential energy. Carry it up a cliff. ************************** Increase the height of the object or increase the mass. One can move the object in the negative direction of a gravitational force to increase its gravitational potential energy.If the object is elastic, you can deform the object under tension or compression (stress) to increase its elastic potential energy.If the object holds a magnetic charge you can increase its electrodynamic potential energy by subjecting it to a stronger magnetic field.If the object holds a static charge, one can increase the amount of charged electric particles (static) to increase electrostatic potential energy, also known as electric potential.One can heat an object to increase its thermal potential energy.One can slow an object down to increase it's rest mass energy (also potential)One can introduce charged leptons or down-type quarks into an atom, which by emitting W and Z bosons can increase the weak forces, which will increase nuclear potential forces of an atom (bit of a stretch) On Earth, Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE) would increase with an increasing altitude. There are different types of energy. You can increase the gravitational potential energy by raising the object. You can increase its thermal energy by heating it up. When an object has potential energy it has the energy to do work.  Potential energy is the energy required to move something against a conservative force - or to keep it there. To increase potential energy, you have to push something against a conservative force. For instance, in the case of gravitational potential energy, push something up. 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. Potential energy refers to the energy stored in an object. An object has potential energy if it has height. An example that gives potential energy to an object is gravity. It is tranferred/converted into kinetic energy (DECREASES) yes it does because potential heat is due to the position of object If it is moved upward, it's potential energy will increase. If it is moved lower, then it's potential energy will decrease.  There are several ways to give an object potential energy. One can move the object against the force of gravity to increase. One can also stretch an object out or put pressure on it. Kinetic energy of an object increases as potential energy DECREASES. Other than that, any other correlations would depend upon the object, it's mass, and it's acceleration. Potential Energy. That is, Energy of Position. An Object raised to a greater height than its original position will show an Increase in its Potential Energy. Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.Energy related to the height of an object is gravitational potential energy.   Basically, potential energy is increased by either an increase in mass, height, or both. As an object is more massive, it has the potential to do more work. As an object is higher up, it has the potential to do more work because it will have a higher velocity at the moment of impact. This is also seen in the definition of potential energy, which is Epotential = M(Ag)H. As shown, increasing either mass (M) or height (H) or both will increase the potential energy. The potential energy is completely related to kinetic energy. Kinetic energy = .5MV2. Increasing mass will directly increase kinetic energy. Height is a little different. The V is velocity, which increases as the object is falling inwards due to gravitational acceleration. Basically, an increase in mass results in an increase in kinetic energy. Initial height does not matter unless the object is moving downwards towards the center of gravity. 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. Kinetic energy increases as speed or mass increases, or as potential energy decreases.Velocity increases(The kinetic energy of an object would also increase as its mass increases, but this doesn't usually happen.)
