How could you increase the potential energy of an object?

We can increase the potential energy of an object by applying more energy on it


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.


When the temperature of an object increase what happens to it potential energy?

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.


How can you increase the potential energy in a object?

Carry it up a cliff. ************************** Increase the height of the object or increase the mass.


How does gravitational potential energy of an object increase?

On Earth, Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE) would increase with an increasing altitude.


How could you increase the energy of an object resting on a desk?

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.


What makes the potential energy increase the speed of an object?

Gravity


What will happen to the kinetic energy of the object as it falls?

Increase.


What two things do you need to increase the kinetic energy of an object?

speed and potential energy


What happens to potential energy as you increase the height or position of an object?

It increases.


When an object has potential energy it has the potential to?

When an object has potential energy it has the energy to do work.


What happen to the potential energy of an object as it falls?

It is tranferred/converted into kinetic energy (DECREASES)


What two ways to give an object potential energy?

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)


How can you increase an object's gravitational potential energy?

By raising the object to a higher position. The potential energy also depends on the force of gravity, and on the object's mass, but for a given object (and for a given planet!), you have no control over these.


How do you increase gravitational potential energy?

Place the object higher above the ground


Does potential energy increase if it is higher of the ground?

yes it does because potential heat is due to the position of object


Potential energy is energy due to?

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.


How do you increase potential energy?

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.


How will the distance in an object move be related to it's original potential energy?

If it is moved upward, it's potential energy will increase. If it is moved lower, then it's potential energy will decrease.


Would increasing the speed of an object increase or decrease its potential energy?

Neither. It increases its kinetic energy


What will happen to the potential energy if the temperature and kinetic energy increase?

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.


What are examples of non mechanical energy?

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.


What are Non examples of mechanical energy?

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.


Is potential energy measured in consumption or expenditure?

Potential energy is stored energy. It has nothing to do with consuming or using energy - although you need to use some other energy to increase an object's potential energy. For example, in the case of gravitational potential energy, an object above ground level (or any other reference level chosen) has a positive potential energy, while an object below ground level has a negative potential energy.


What are two ways to give an object potential energy?

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.
