Out of solids, liquids, and gases, which has the most potential energy? I'm pretty sure gases have the most kinetic energy, but I'm not completely sure about potential energy.


Also, do exothermic reactions convert potential energy to kinetic energy, right? So then endothermic reactions covert kinetic energy to potential energy?

What exactly is the potential energy in this situation?

Should you consider the relative bond energies of the product and reactant in an exothermic reaction which side would have more potential energy?

Also note that energy has many ways of being translated consider other ways in which potential energy is able to be converted besides kinetic energy.
