What are the two different energies a free falling body will have?

A freely falling body has both kinetic and potential energy.

Kinetic energy and potential energy

  • Energy stored in an object due to its position is Potential Energy.
  • The energy that a moving object has due to its motion is Kinetic Energy.
  • Kinetic energy formula: KE = 1/2mv2
  • Potential energy formula: P.E=mgh
  • Potential energy is the stored energy in any object or system by virtue of its position or arrangement of parts.
  • If an object is not moving, it has Zero KE.
