Potential energy comparison

Postby JennyCKim1J » Tue Jan 23, 2018 10:42 pm

When is potential energy highest? For example, for combustion, is it highest before or after combustion? Why? Does the book cover this?

I would say that potential energy is highest before combustion, as it will all be converted to kinetic energy during the reaction.
