  32. Can there be more that one form of energy at one time?

    If Yes explain
    • A spinning top is kinetic energy.
    • A spinning top on top of a hill has both kinetic energy because it is spinning and potential because it could moe down the hill.

    A spinning top is also a form of mechanical energy so 3 types.
