Physics for Lamons (Kinetic and Potential Energy)

Physics is the study of energy’s capability’s and utilization. The containment of energy is essential to powering devices. Containing nuclear energy will be the next large progression for humans to make. Energies are classified and referred to as either kinetic or potential. Kinetic energy is when an object is in motion and has a trajectory and the impact can be calculated. Potential energy is when an object remains in a non-moving position and when released, exerts force.


Physics are relevant to human’s daily motions as well as human endurance. To merely move causes energy, and therefore incorporates physics into everyday living. The reason for exhaustion is that a body is charged by electrodes and when the charges are ignited (motions are made) the same electrodes remain in the body even after motions. Stimulants such as electrolytes are added into consumable products for people who are overly-active such as athletes. If no electrolytes were to stimulate the body of athletes, then fatigue at a faster rate could be proven.

Constriction of molecules boosts potential energy. When particles (molecules) are closer together, then the release of the object (group of particles) is heavier in any state of liquid, gas, or solid; in contrast to a loosely combined molecular structure, where the object will be less dense and not travel as fast in any state of matter. In order to make a potential energy greater, an engineer must consider hosting the molecules inside of a light-weighted body with dynamics to accommodate speed, which can equate to force and impact, in the ideal state of matter (liquid, gas, or solid). Therefore, potential energy, when engineered can be made more powerful by scientific calculation and choice of molecular make up of the object (some molecules are more dense than others), and when the energy moves into kinetic classifications, atmospheric and environmental factors, such as wind, can alter projections of the potential energy.

Kinetic energies are made stronger by force. As soon as an object has been released as a trajectory or wave form, then the traveling energies are considered kinetic or in motion. Force proves to be essential to kinetic energy. If objects are thrown horizontally through the air, then the speed of release and size and density of the object must be known in order to establish a kinetic energy. The speed of the ball traveling can be altered by environmental factors such as wind blowing; either to make a greater impact or a more dull impact. In contrast to potential energy, kinetic energy focuses on an in-route impact to an object created by a force of release, while potential energies focus on the prelude (designing and inclusions to the propelled structure) to release rather than the dynamics of the moving object or wave.

Impact can be algorithmically calculated in reverse (algebraically) to find the energy that was potential.  The molecular structure can also change the impact and trajectory of an object. Atoms such as helium are lighter than the compound of water (hydrogen and oxygen). When compounds are formed and classified as solid metals and weigh more than water, the object sinks. If an object outweighs the water and consist of a light core, such as hydrogen or helium, the object can stay afloat because the support of the lightweight molecular core of the object accommodates the liquid. In order for a dense object to float in water, the core’s lightweight molecules must be retained fully without leakage, regardless if the molecules are loose of compacted.

Propulsion is necessary to kinetic energy because without a release of an object, the energy remains potential.
