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.

Temperature is directly proportional to kinetic energy (potential energy).eg. increase the temperature, you increase the kinetic energy of the molecules, hence you're increasing the potential energy of them.

kinetic energy is increase by heat

An increase in temperature increases the kinetic energy of molecules.

When the temperature of a material increase, thermal energy is added to the material. It also increases the kinetic and potential energy of the particles. When the temperature reach the boiling or melting point, the kinetic energy stays the same, but the thermal energy and the potential energy still keeps adding and increasing. And when ONLY the potential energy increase, the state of the material changes from one to another.

As the kinetic energy of an object increases, its potential energy decreases.

Kinetic Energy:As the average kinetic energy of an objectincreases its temperature will increase

because the kinetic energy of electron increase with increase in temperature. this increase in kinetic energy increase drift velocity

No. In gases, 'Absolute temperature' is proportionally related to the kinetic energy of the particles. Therefore, increase in temperature results in increase in the kinetic energy of the particles.

Temperature is a measure of average kinetic energy. As kinetic energy increases, the temperature increases. As KE decreases, the temperature decreases.

Yes -- If an object is directed upwards, its kinetic energy will decrease and its potential energy will increase until its kinetic energy is 0, at which point it will begin to fall downward, making its potential energy become kinetic again.

Temperature is the measure of kinetic energy of the molecules involved in the solid. If you increase the temperature, you increase the kinetic energy.

As the temperature increases, the kinetic energy of the molecules will increase. As the temperature decreases, the kinetic energy of the molecules will decrease.

No. Its potential energy does decrease.

The object's kinetic energy increases, because the definition of temperature is the average kinetic energy of an object.

When the ball falls down, the potential energy decreases (potential energy is greater at a greater height), but the kinetic energy (energy due to movement) will increase.

Kinetic energy of a substance is the energy of motion of its particles. Temperature is a measure of this quality. When you increase the kinetic energy of a substance, you increase the motion and collisions between its particles, and its temperature goes up.

When there is an increase in an object or medium's temperature, its particles have increase kinetic energy. Temperature is the measure of the average amount of kinetic energy within an object or medium.

No. The energy you might be referring to is kinetic energy which is the energy possessed by individual water molecules. An increase in kinetic energy will be percieved as and increase in temperature. Similarly a decrease in kinetic energy will be percieved as a decrease in temperature.

If potential energy increases, then kinetic energy decreases. If potential energy decreases, then kinetic energy increases. This is because of the total mechanical energy, which is potential energy + kinetic energy. If one increases/decreases, then the other has to do the opposite in order to conserve the total mechanical energy.

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.
