Potential And Kinetic Energy Quiz Questions And Answers - Quiz

Get ready to take this quiz that has informative "Potential And Kinetic Energy Questions and Answers!" Kinetic energy is the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity, whereas potential energy is the energy possessed by an entity by its position relative to others. The quiz below is designed to see how much you understand about these different types of energy. Be sure to identify what was hard for you before the next class and ask for clarifications. All the best!
