Excerpt
?Kinetic? is another word for ?motion.? Scientists use it to define energy that is moving. For example, waves in the ocean have kinetic energy, because they are moving. Something as big as a plane in flight has kinetic energy, but size is not important. Atoms, which are the tiniest particles of matter, are also in motion. They have kinetic energy, too.

Kinetic energy can appear in many forms.
