Kinetic energy is the energy an object has due to its motion. As long as an object is moving at the same velocity, it will maintain the same kinetic energy. The kinetic energy of an object is calculated from the velocity and the mass of the object. Kinetic energy is due to an object's motion while potential energy is due to an object's position or state. To continue reading, follow the link above.
