Transcripts - Kinetic and potential energy

  • 1. Kinetic and Potential Energy
  • 2. Kinetic Energy and Potential Energy • Kinetic Energy is the energy of motion. An object that has motion-whether it is vertical or horizontal motion-has kinetic energy. • Potential Energy: An object can store energy as the result of its position.
  • 3. Hypothesis • What happens to the two balls (basket ball and tennis ball) when they are dropped on the ground with a tennis ball on top of the basket ball? • May be both will fall to the ground at the same time. • The experiment is conducted to see what happens when the two balls are dropped.
  • 4. Experiment • Carefully put the tennis ball on top of the basket ball, holding one hand under the basket ball and the other on top of the tennis ball. • Let go both the balls at the same time and observe what happens.
  • 5. This is what will happen • When we drop the balls at the same time, the tennis ball should bounce off the basket ball and fly high into the air. The two balls hit each other just after they hit the ground, a lot of kinetic energy from the big ball is transferred through to the smaller tennis ball, sending it high into the air. • While you held the balls in the air before dropping them they had another type of energy called potential energy, the balls gained this through the effort it took you lift the balls up, it is interesting to note that energy is never lost, only transferred into other kinds of energy.
  • 6. Conclusion Tennis ball and basket ball will not just fall on the ground. Instead the small ball goes high up in the air. This shows that energy is transferred between objects.
