# What factors influence potential and kinetic energy?

## What factors influence potential and kinetic energy?

Since the state of motion of an object can change with time, the kinetic energy of an object can also change with time. The amount of Kinetic Energy that an object possesses is dependent on two factors: mass and velocity. Both of these factors are directly proportional to the kinetic energy.

## What are examples of kinetic and potential energy?

What Are Examples of Potential and Kinetic Energy?

• 1) Planets. The movement of planets around the sun and other stars in the galaxy is kinetic energy at work.
• 2) Rubber Bands. Rubber bands can be classified as both potential and kinetic energy, depending on the state of the band.
• 3) Rivers.
• 4) Specific Variations.

## Where is potential energy found?

Potential energy is energy that is stored in an object or substance. Gravitational potential energy is energy in an object that is held in a vertical position. Elastic potential energy is energy stored in objects that can be stretched or compressed.

## What is Delta H?

In a chemical reaction, delta H represents the sum of the heats of formation, commonly measured in kilojoules per mol (kJ/mol), of the products minus the sum of those of the reactants. The letter H in this form is equal to a thermodynamic quantity called enthalpy, representing the total heat content of a system.

## What does a positive delta H mean?

3. What does it mean if Enthalpy is POSITIVE or NEGATIVE? A positive ∆H means that a reaction is endothermic as heat is absorbed from the surroundings to the system and the surroundings feel cold as the temperature decreases.

## What is the difference between Delta H and Delta H RXN?

The ΔHºrxn is the standard heat of reaction or standard enthalpy of a reaction, and like ΔH also measures the enthalpy of a reaction. However, ΔHºrxn takes place under “standard” conditions, meaning that the reaction takes place at 25º C and 1 atm.

## What is the difference between Delta S and Delta H?

So delta S is the measure of randomness or chaos or movement, as in the particles or compounds. H is the measurement of how much energy it contains within it. And we can’t measure H by itself. We must measure the change in energy or change in heat.

## What does Delta S RXN mean?

∆S is the change in entropy (disorder) from reactants to products. R is the gas constant (always positive) T is the absolute temperature (Kelvin, always positive) What it means: If ∆H is negative, this means that the reaction gives off heat from reactants to products.

## What if Delta S is negative?

Negative delta S (ΔS<0) is a decrease in entropy in regard to the system. For physical processes the entropy of the universe still goes up but within the confines of the system being studied entropy decreases. One example is a freezer with a cup of liquid water in it.

## Is Delta S 0 at equilibrium?

When a process/reaction is at equilibrium or it is a reversible reaction, delta S total = 0.

## Is Delta G positive or negative?

Favorable reactions have Delta G values that are negative (also called exergonic reactions). Unfavorable reactions have Delta G values that are positive (also called endergonic reactions). When the Delta G for a reaction is zero, a reaction is said to be at equilibrium. Equilibrium does NOT mean equal concentrations.

## What does it mean when Delta G is positive instead of negative?

A positive ΔG° means that the equilibrium constant is less than 1. At 25°C, the standard enthalpy change (ΔH°) is −187.78 kJ/mol, and the absolute entropies of the products and reactants are: S°(O2) = 205.2 J/(mol•K), and.
