I will now take a definite case, and compare the potential energy of a certain kind of fuel with the results actually obtained.
In all batteries the potential energy of one element is greater than the other.
Take an illustration of the way in which this reserve or potential energy is transformed into circulating or kinetic energy.
potential energy is force that a body is in a position to exert.
potential energy is slumbering energy, energy localized or locked up in the body.
In fatigue the potential energy of the cell is gradually dissipated.
Gasoline, kerosene, and illuminating gas are purchased because of the potential energy they contain.
These gases have stored in them a wonderful amount of potential energy.
Here a few mill-wheels were set whirling, and a tiny fraction of the potential energy of the water was utilized.
Hearty foods are those in which there is an abundance of potential energy.
potential energy n.
The energy that exists in a body as a result of its position or condition rather than of its motion.
|potential energy |
The energy possessed by a body as a result of its position or condition rather than its motion. A raised weight, coiled spring, or charged battery has potential energy. Compare kinetic energy.
