Give one example of a body that has potential energy, in each of the following :-                                          i) due to its position                                                                                                                                     ii) due to its state

Expert Answer:

i) Potential energy due to position:
When a ball is released from the top of the building it has potential energy stored in it because of its position. This potential energy converted into the kinetic energy when the ball is released.
ii)Potential energy due to its state
when the spring is compressed or streched the potential energy is stored in the spring because of its state.
