(a) The bowling ball rolling down the alley has kinetic energy due to its motion. (b) The book sitting on the top shelf of the bookcase has potential energy due to its position above the ground.

### How do you beat level 5 of Civiballs Christmas edition?

First, cut the right string on the second green ball on the top shelf, and then the left string.Wait for the ball to roll off the left side of the shelf.Next, cut the left string off the silver ball on the top shelf, and then the right.

The experimental setup I envision is as follows: you get a sheet of melamine, stick it in the middle of the school gym, set one end on a sawhorse to create the slope, put the two balls at the top of the slope, let go of them at the same time and measure to see which one goes farther once it gets out onto the gym floor. Right? Because of the weights of the two balls, the bowling ball will travel farther. It can store more energy from gravity.

### What are examples of potential energy and kinetic energy in bowling?

In bowling, the potential energy is the stored energy in the ball as it sits at the top of the lane before the bowler releases it. The kinetic energy is then seen as the ball gains speed and momentum as it rolls down the lane towards the pins.
