Kinetic Energy and Potential Energy

• 1.

### Decide whether this has kinetic or potential

• A.

KINETIC

• B.

POTENTIAL

B. POTENTIAL
Explanation
The correct answer is potential because potential energy refers to the energy stored in an object due to its position or condition. In this case, the given question is asking to determine whether the object has kinetic or potential energy, and the correct answer is potential energy.

### Kinetic Energy is energy which is moving and therefore being used.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by an object due to its motion. When an object is in motion, it is using its energy to move. Therefore, the statement that kinetic energy is energy which is moving and therefore being used is correct.

### Potential energy is the energy of an object because of it's position (resting or waiting). It is also called possible energy.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Potential energy is indeed the energy possessed by an object due to its position or configuration. This energy is stored and can be converted into other forms of energy, such as kinetic energy, when the object is in motion. Therefore, it is correct to say that potential energy is the energy of an object because of its position or state of rest.
