Answer:

Potential energy is the energy that an object has due to its position, such as from being a certain height above the ground.

Kinetic energy is the energy that an object has from its movement.

Explanation:

For example, holding a box in the air has potential energy because of its height over the ground. If the box is dropped, the potential energy is converted into kinetic energy because of its movement towards the ground.
