Potential Energy•If work is done but no kinetic energy is gained, we say that the potential energyhas increased.–For example, if a force is applied to lift a crate, the gravitational potential energy of the crate has increased.–The work done is equal to the force (mg) times the distance lifted (height).–The gravitational potential energy equals mg X h.•potential energyimplies storing energy to use later for other purposes.–For example, the gravitational potential energy of the crate can be converted to kinetic energy and used for other purposes•After releasing the string, it reach the ground with higher speed, i.e. large kinetic energy, if it’s positioned higher, i.e. higher potential energy at the beginning.
