Best Answer

By using chemicals in a rocket engine to raise a vehicle high above the earth's surface, the vehicle will gain gravitational potential energy. It will also gain kinetic energy, depending on what trajectory it follows

What is the energy stored in an object that is not moving?

Potential energy is energy that is stored in an object, and can be changed into kinetic, or other forms of energy. There are many types, such as Elastic Potential Energy and Gravitational Potential Energy.

What is an example of gravitational energy transforming to mechanical energy?

Gravitational potential energy IS mechanical energy. Mechanical energy includes both kinetic energy, and potential energy.When an object falls, gravitational potential energy will be converted to KINETIC energy.

What are the two major types of potential energy?

Gravitational and chemical potential energy.

How can Kenetic energy be affected by Gravitational potential energy?

Not directly; the two are independent. But if an object with gravitational potential energy falls, that energy may be converted to kinetic energy.
