## Examples of Mechanical Energy

Mechanical energy is the energy that an object possesses due to its position and motion. The energy due to its location is called the potential energy and the energy due to its motion is called the kinetic energy. Therefore, mechanical energy is the sum total of the potential and kinetic energy of an object due … Read moreExamples of Mechanical Energy

## Examples of Potential Energy

Last updated on September 6th, 2019 at 06:25 pmPotential energy of a body is the energy that it possesses due to its position with respect to other objects. It could also be due to stresses within itself, its electric charge, or other factors. You perform some amount of work to change the position, configuration, etc. … Read moreExamples of Potential Energy
