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.
|Kinetic energy||Potential 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.|
