Which type of energy does a moving object have?

We generally think of kinetic energy as the energy of an object's motion. This can be contrasted by considering that potential energy is the energy of an objects position (in a gravimetric field). With kinetic energy, the more mass and the more speed, the more energy. With potential energy, the more mass and the higher we lift it (to a point) the more potential it has to do work.A moving object has vector energy Ev= mcV, associated with its velocity V. Potential energy is real energy or scalar energy.


Why does mass and position effect potential energy?

Because the more mass there is in a an object, then the more potential energy there is. For example, a obese person would most likely decline to move, therefor increasing the potential energy. If the position is comfortable, then the potential energy will increase as well


What has more potential energy a boulder or a feather 10 feet in the air?

A boulder.


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


Does mass depend on location?

Only very slightly - according to the Special Theory of Relativity, an increase in energy means a corresponding increase in mass. Since at a higher position an object has more potential energy, it follows that it has slightly more mass.Only very slightly - according to the Special Theory of Relativity, an increase in energy means a corresponding increase in mass.

Can mass influence the potential energy of an object?

Of course, PE = mgh m=mass g=gravity h=height If mass goes up, so will potential energy. Putting it in readable way-A object with more mass(heavier) has more potential energy(energy stored).


What do both potential and kinetic energy have in common?

Mass Kinetic energy = 1/2 · mass ∙velocity2 Potential energy = mass ∙ (acceleration due to gravity) ∙ height Mass is common to both Kinetic energy is the energy due to motion. The faster an object (mass) is moving; the more Kinetic energy is has. Potential energy is the energy due to position. The higher an object (mass) is off the earth's surface, the more Potential energy it has.fcfytrdddrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrtdjgrfxnzsdfcxzdfgv dorkk

What type of energy an object with more mass have?

An object with more mass than another object has a greater amount of energy in itself (E=MC squared). it also has more kinetic energy if it is moving and more potential energy in a gravity field.

How much potential energy does water have after it falls to the ground?

After water or anything else falls to the ground it has no potential energy anymore. When mas is elevated it has potential energy. When it falls, the potential is converted to kinetic energy. That energy is then converted to light, heat, sound or compression of the object on to which the mass fell. But then the mass has no more potential energy.


How does the height and mass affect the amount of potential and kinetic energy an object possess?

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.

If a raised object has potential energy does it have more if you lift it higher?

Yes. The potential energy of an object is E=mgh where m=mass, g=acceleration of gravity (9.8 m/s^2) and h is the height of an object above a reference point. So, if two objects (on the same planet) have the same mass, the one that is higher will have the larger potential energy. Another way to think of this is that in lifting an object higher you do work on that object. That work is converted into it's potential energy. Whenever you do work you change the energy of the object.
