Kinetic Energy

• Anything which is moving has kinetic energy. The kinetic energy of something depends on its mass and speed.
• The greater the mass and the faster it's going, the greater the kinetic energy will be.
• kinetic energy = 0.5 x m x v(squared)
• Stopping distances are affected by extra speed a lot.

Potential Energy

• Energy can be stored as potential energy.
• Elastic potential energy - Things like springs and elastic…
