"Kinetic energy"

Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by an object because of its motion. All moving objects have kinetic energy. The amount of kinetic energy depends upon the mass and speed of the object. A roller coaster car has a lot of kinetic energy if it is moving fast and has a lot of mass. In general, the kinetic energy of a roller coaster rider is at a maximum when the rider reaches a minimum height.
