Theme: YOU AND ENERGY
Basic science J.S.S.2 Second Term
The student should be able to:
- Explain the meaning of potential and kinetic energy
Energy is the ability to perform work. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be transformed from one kind to another. The unit of energy is the same as of Work i.e. Joules. Energy is found in many things and thus there are different types of energy.
All forms of energy are either kinetic or potential.
Potential energy is the stored energy an object has because of its position or state. A bicycle on top of a hill, a book held over your head, and a stretched spring all have potential energy.
