Potential Energy Quizzes

Potential Energy Quizzes & Trivia
It’s time for a crash course in potential energy so pay attention! This little description could help you ace these quizzes. Here we go: in a closed environment, the sum of kinetic energy and potential energy combined is a constant.

When potential energy increases, kinetic energy will decrease. When kinetic energy increases, potential energy will decrease. It’s a lot to take in so just soak it up for a minute. Kinetic and potential energy relate to which of the following: heat, light, or mo
