Kinetic and Potential Energy Work Together To Make Other Energies


One way our energy can change form is by going from potential energy, to kinetic energy, to sound energy. Think of it this way. For example: A basketball. You catch a pass, you square up and you shoot the ball. When it's up about to go through the net, it has potential energy. When it drops in, it's going down, and it has kinetic energy. Then when it hits the ground you can hear it bounce. It has sound energy. That's how all energies work together.
