Potential Energy

Have you got potential? We think so! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby explain what it means when something has potential energy. You’ll find out what potential energy represents and where it comes from. You’ll learn about gravity, movement, and how energy can change or be transferred. See what kinetic energy has to do with potential energy, and what can give objects the most potential energy. There’s enough fun in here to make you potentially obsessed!
