What Do You Know About Kinetic And Potential Energy? Trivia Quiz - Quiz

What do you know about kinetic and potential energy? 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 a body by virtue of its position relative to others. Take this test and have a chance to learn more about these types of energy!
