Explain the difference between potential energy and kinetic energy.
|Kinetic Energy||Potential Energy|
|(i) Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by the body due to its motion.||(i) Potential energy is the energy possessed by the body because of its shape or position.|
|(ii) K.E = 1/2 mv2
|(ii) P.E = mgh|
|(iii) e.g., flowing water, such as when falling from a waterfall.||(iii) e.g., water at the top of a waterfall, before the drop.|
