Transcript of Potential and Kinetic Energy

Potential Energy (PE) is:

energy that is stored and held in readiness
Kinetic Energy (KE)
Kinetic energy (KE) is the energy that an object has in motion
Law of Conservation of Energy

Energy can be neither created nor destroyed, but can be transferred or change form
