Difference between kinetic energy and potential energy in tabular form

Advertisement

Kinetic energy and potential energy are the forms of mechanical energy.K.E is the energy possessed due to motion and P.E is the energy possessed due to position.These are two different forms of energy.

Now!

If you want to learn about the difference between kinetic energy and potential energy then you are at the right place.So stay with us for few minutes.

Kinetic energyPotential energy
Energy due to motion is called kinetic energy.Energy due to position is called potential energy.
K.E can be transferred between objects.P.E cannot be transferred between objects.
It is measured from place itself.It is measured from bottom.
K.E is relative to the environment of object.P.E is no relative to the environment of object.

Formula:

k.E=½mv²

formula:

P.E =mgh
