## Where does the skateboarder have the most kinetic energy?

AnswerThe skater has the highest amount of kinetic energy when **he reaches the lowest point of the track**. Potential energy – when he reaches the highest point on the track.

## Which point has the most kinetic energy and the least potential energy?

Terms in this set (32) At the highest point in the swing, **the pendulum** has the most gravitational potential energy and the least kinetic energy.

## Where on the ramp did the skater have the most kinetic energy How about potential energy?

down the ramp. The skater’s total energy does not change (it remains the same as it was in the beginning) as he moves up the ramp. The skater’s kinetic energy is **at it’s highest at the bottom of the ramp**, as none of it has been used it. Potential energy was being used to get the skater to the bottom if the ramp.

## What would have the greatest kinetic energy?

Which vehicle has the greatest kinetic energy? **The motorcycle** has the most kinetic energy because it is the vehicle with the least mass. All of the vehicles have the same kinetic energy because they are moving at the same speed.

## Which position will have the most kinetic energy?

Kinetic energy is energy an object has because of its motion and is equal to one-half multiplied by the mass of an object multiplied by its velocity squared (KE = 1/2 mv^{2}). Kinetic energy is greatest **at the lowest point of a roller coaster** and least at the highest point.

## At which point is the potential energy zero?

The potential energy U of a body at some point x is defined to be the work done on the object by an extra, imposed force to move it from a reference position to its current position. **The reference point** is called the “zero point” of potential energy as the potential energy will be zero there by definition.

## Which point has the greatest potential energy?

Gravitational potential energy is the energy that an object has because of its height and is equal to the object’s mass multiplied by its height multiplied by the gravitational constant (PE = mgh). Gravitational potential energy is greatest at **the highest point of a roller coaster** and least at the lowest point.

## At which point is potential energy the least?

As an object falls under the influence of gravity, potential energy is less than kinetic energy **after halfway point / before the halfway point**.

## What is the relationship between potential energy kinetic energy and speed?

When an object falls, **its gravitational potential energy is changed to kinetic energy**. You can use this relationship to calculate the speed of the object’s descent. Gravitational potential energy for a mass m at height h near the surface of the Earth is mgh more than the potential energy would be at height 0.

## What is the relationship between speed and kinetic energy?

This equation reveals that the kinetic energy of an object is **directly proportional to the square of its speed**. That means that for a twofold increase in speed, the kinetic energy will increase by a factor of four. For a threefold increase in speed, the kinetic energy will increase by a factor of nine.
