Energy Question

Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years, 7 months ago

 We use energy everyday!  Give an example of when you have experienced both potential and kinetic energy.  Remember, potential energy is energy that is stored, and kinetic energy is energy that is being used.

I have experensed when I was in a car. We were in a rush and we had to stop at every light. When we stoped we showed Pertential NRG and when we stoped I showed kentik NRG. That is how I showed NRG.

Yes I have experiensed it before. I was at Wildwood and I was riding a wooden rollarcoaster called "The Great White." You are at the station then you drop down into a tunnel then once you are out of the tunnel your are taken up the hill(potential) . Once you get to the top your drop(kenetik).

I have experience with it when I went to Adventure Land. I went on the pirate ship there. It goes up and down. when it is going up it shows potental energy and when it goes down it shows kentik enegry. That is one of my favorite ways to show potental and kentik energy.

The best example of a time I was on something that used potential and kinetic energy was when I was at an amusment park called Valley Fair. For the first time I went on a pirate ship that went upside-down. First, it started swinging you slowly, and then as you were coming down, you could tell that only gravity was taking you. Then, again you could feel the motor until it swung us in circles going up side down and hanging on the top once!

Yes, I have experienced both Potential energy and Kinetick energy. I expereinced them at Bush Gardens in Virginia. I went on the ride Escape from Pompeii. When I was going up the track,I was excperiencing Potential energy and when I was going down the track, I was experiencing Kinetick energy. That is when I experienced both Kinetick and Potetial energy.energy.

The way I have experienced Potential and Kinetick energy is a way that happens everyday for me! In dance, when I do kicks I use Potential and Kinetick energy. When my foot is ready to do a kick, I am using Potential energy. When my foot is in the air, I am using Kinitick energy!

I've experienced Potential and Kenetick energy many times. One time was when I went to Adventureland. I experienced it when I went on the log flume. You are pulled up with Potential energy. Then when you go down you are using Kinetick energy!

a time I was exposed to it was when I went to an amuisent park in Deliware it was called fun land but what ever there was a prit ship there and i went on so that was time I was ex posed to potenchal and kinetic energy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I used potential and kenetic energy is when I am in the car. When we stop at a red light thats how I am using potenital energy. When we go I am using kenetic energy. Bye!!

Once When I went to Hersy Park I went on the Wild Cat. When I went up I used Kenetic energy. When I'm waiting at the top Im using Potential energy.

I was exposed to kenetic and potential energy in a car. When we stop i would move forward and when we stop i would stay againist the back of the sit. That was when i was exposed to kenetic and potential energy.

I was exposed to potential and kinetick energy the first time I ever went on the Pirate Ship. First as you go up it's potential energy. After when you go down you use kinetick.

A time I experienced potential and kinetic was when I went to Herhsey park. I went on the claw which would use kinetic energy to spin and go up. While it would use kinetic energy to come down. that is about potential and kinetic energy - Anthony Ferraro

I use potential and kintetic energy when I throw a ball with a Lacrosse stick, everyday. It is so much fun. That is how I use potential and kinetic energy in my everyday life.

The last time I was exposed to potential and kinetic energy was yesterday when I was pitching in a baseball game.Right up to when I am about to through the baseball is potential energy. When I through it and its in the air that is kenetic energy.
