Today I am going to be talking about energy. There are two types of energy, potential and kinetic. Right now I am on a carnival ride. When this ride goes up, it is gathering potential energy, and when it goes down, it is gathering kinetic energy.
Potential energy is stored energy, and kinetic energy is energy of motion. Anything moving has kinetic energy.
I just went on this ride. I figured out that the ride was faster going down then it was going up.
This was because when I was going up, the ride was gathering potential energy, and when I was going out, that stored energy turned into kinetic energy.
