The purpose of this experiment is to fully explain how starting height and mass affect an object’s potential and kinetic energy. Potential energy is stored energy. Potential energy related to an object’s height is called gravitational potential energy. The formula for calculating gravitational potential energy is Gravitational potential energy = Weight × Height. Kinetic energy is the energy an object has due to motion. The formula for calculating kinetic energy is Kinetic Energy = ½ × Mass × Velocity. Speed of an object is the distance the object travels per unit of time. The formula for calculating speed is Speed = Distance ÷ Time.  How does the starting height of an object affect an object's kinetic and potential energy ? The independent variable is the object's height. The dependent variable is the kinetic energy and potential energy. The hypothesis is if an object's height is shorter or taller than it won't affect kinetic and potential energy because it doesn't affect energy.Is this introduction okay for a lab report?
