examples of kinetic enery and potential energy its urgent

Examples of Potential Energy:

is the energy by the virtue of its arrangement or location of parts of the body. In  simple words we can easily determine that potential energy is the energy stored due to the postion on the body.

The above two examples shows the two different forms of Potential energy – gravitational and elastic potential energy.

One of the widely known Potential energy is Gravitational Potential Energy. This potential energy is the energy stored in an object as the result of its vertical position or height. In other words this gravitational energy is termed as the energy stored due to the gravitational traction of the earth on the object. Basically this type of potential energy depends entirely on the mass and height .

Examples of Kinetic Energy:

All moving objects have kinetic energy. Keeping this point in mind we can illustrate some examples of kinetic energy

1. A moving car

2. Water falling from a height in waterfalls

3. Electrons revolving around the nucleus

4. Earth orbiting the sun

5. A swinging pendulum

6. Satellites revolving around the planets

7. A walking man

8. A moving rocket or spacecraft

9. A bullet fired from a gun

10. A child playing a computer game

11. A spinning top

12. Water stored in the dam has potential energy.When it flows down the Potential energy gets converted into Kinetic energy.

13. A rocket fired from the launch vehicle.

14. A person skipping

15. A police running behind a thief

16. Mangoes falling from a mango tree

17. A diver undergoing sky diving

18. A person swimming

19. A crawling baby

20. A bucket of water undergoing vertical or horizontal motion

In short any example of motion you consider, it has kinetic energy associated with it

If you are satisfied do give thumbs up.
