Kinetic energy is the energy of a body because of its motion. The kinetic energy of a body of mass ‘m’ moving with speed ‘v’ is written as, KE = (1/2)mv2

Potential energy is the energy of the body because of its position or configuration. PE of a body of mass m at a height h from the surface of earth is, mgh.
