When the ball is positioned in your hands it has full potential energy. As you move and the ball is thrown at the basket, the potential energy is converted to kinetic energy, by the transfer of kinetic energy from your arms, to your hands, to the ball. When the ball hits the basket some of its kinetic energy was converted into potential energy and then back into kinetic energy as it hit the ground.
The energy for muscle contractions ultimately comes from chemical reactions in the body that convert stored chemical potential energy into kinetic energy of the muscles, and subsequently of the jump. However, not all of that chemical energy is successfully converted into kinetic energy. Some is dissipated as heat, and a significant amount is lost into the ground.
An exothermic reaction and the change between potential and kinetic.
There is a transformation involved between potential and kinetic energy. Mechanical energy is involved in overall process.
what are the similarities between basketball and ring-ball
The difference between them is a girls basketball is not as heavy as a boys basketball!
Seriously -.-' First of all When You throw The Basketball it is going up^ Which is Kinetic energy when is comes down and STOPS it is Potential energy. Oh And this question is in the 6th grade science textbook! The orange textbook....so yeah. BYe
i dont know
