is it kinetic energy or potential energy when you throw a ball in the air for science

is it kinetic energy or potential energy when you throw a ball in the air for science

Answer

Throwing a ball into the air represents a situation in which the total energy is fixed and there is a continous transformation from kinetic energy to potential energy.
When the ball is on the ground there and not moving there is no potential energy or kinetic energywhen the the ball is tossed into the air it will reach a maximum height which is determined by how much kinetic energy it has (air resistance is important however)when the ball reaches its maximum height its velocity is 0 and all of the energy in the system is potential energyas the ball falls to the ground that potential energy is converted to kinetic energy
