# 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 motion? What is potential energy?

What is kinetic energy? Can you identify an example of potential energy? How about identifying an example of kinetic energy? The only way to find out how much you know about potential energy is to give these quizzes a try. You might be surprised at what you find!
