# At which point is the potential energy maximum?

**kinetic energy**is maximum and potential energy is minimum. This is where the velocity is a maximum. At the highest point of its motion,

**kinetic energy**is minimum (i.e. zero) and potential energy is maximum.

Similarly one may ask, at what point is the kinetic energy at a maximum?

At an object's **maximum** height, **kinetic energy** is zero/ **maximum** while the potential **energy** is zero/ **maximum**. 3. At an object's lowest **point**, **kinetic energy** is zero/ **maximum** while potential **energy** is zero / **maximum**.

**earth**.

Hereof, what is the maximum value of potential energy?

it can be used to describe the **potential energy** in a system of point charges (or radially symmetric spheres) as a function of their separation distance r, then the **maximum value** is zero at infinite separation. Hence, its **maximum value** is zero at infinity.

Gravitational **potential energy** U is V*m, that means it also depends on the mass of the orbiting **body**. So earth's **potential energy** is much greater than the **potential energy** of a comet far beyond the orbit of Neptune. The Gravitational PE is **maximum** at infinity and comically this **maximum** is a zero.
