# Difference between WORK and ENERGY ?

Energy is what allows everything to work. Kinematic energy is the energy of movement, for instance if you have a mass of $50$ kg and you are moving at $20$ m/s, then your kinetic energy is 1/2*50 "kg" (20 "m/s")^2 = 10 kJ. There is also potential energy (which increases proportionally with height) and several other types.
