hat is meant by potential energy? Give an example of an object or material that possesses potential energy.

Expert Solution
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The potential energy should be defined along with an example of an object or material which possess potential energy

Concept Introduction:

The property which is quantitative in nature and must be transferred to an object in order to heat the object and do work on the object is known as energy. Energy is a conserved quantity and can be classified as kinetic energy and potential energy.

Explanation of Solution

The energy which is possessed by an object or material due to its composition or position with respect to other objects or material is said to be potential energy...
