1.potential energy is energy stored in an object due to its position ot arrangement.
2.the factors that effect an object's gravitational potential energy are its heigh relative to some reference point
The law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system remains constant; it is said to be conserved over time. ... For instance, chemical energy is converted to kinetic energy when a stick of dynamite explodes.
Hope that my answer will help you:)
