Kinetic Energy is a term used to describe the energy from the motion of an object; given by mv2, where m is the mass of the object and v is its velocity. Kinetic energy used, for example, in watches, movements from the wrist or arm produces kinetic energy. This energy makes precise, high-quality mechanical watches run with high precision.
Kinetic energy is regarded as high-grade sources of energy and provide the most organised forms of energy, and low-grade sources are the least organised. The higher grades include the kinetic energy of moving matter, gravitational potential energy, and electrical energy. It converts with small losses. Larger losses occur when the lower forms
