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

kinetic energy is increase by heat

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.

Increased mass and/or height increase potential energy.

Potential energy is vague, which consists of gravitational potential energy, chemical potential energy , etc. How to increase Gravtiational potential energy? Gravitational energy = mass x gravity constant x height looking at the equation, by increasing the height or increasing the mass. Chemical potential energy is basically stored energy, increasing the mass of the stored energy.

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

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.
