Because any moving thing or object has kinetic energy, there are many examples of this energy type, including a ball dropping into water, a car in motion and a moving arrow. However, there are different types or forms of... More »

Everything that moves has kinetic energy. The wind causing things such as leaves and branches to move and moving water are two examples of kinetic energy for kids. More »

A bullet fired from a gun is an example of mechanical kinetic energy, while the gunpowder before firing is an example of chemical potential energy. Kinetic energy is the energy of a particle or wave in motion, while pote... More »

Kinetic energy is used by exploiting the motion of an object. For example, the energy of a moving piston in an automotive engine provides transportation. The kinetic energy of moving water powers hydroelectric dams that ... More »

An example of Newton's second law of motion would be if someone's car ran out of gas and they tried to push it and, because the car is much heavier, it would require more force to push than if it was a lighter object, li... More »

Some examples of mechanical energy are a hammer, a bowling ball, a drawn bow and arrow and a moving volleyball. Mechanical energy is defined as the energy an object has either due to its motion or its stored energy of po... More »
