Give one example each of potential energy (i) due to position (ii) due to shape.
Answer:

  • Potential energy due to position: Water stored in dam has potential energy.
  • Potential energy due to shape: In a toy car, the wound spring possesses potential energy, and as the spring is released, its potential energy changes into kinetic energy due to which the car moves.
