### What is conserved sum of potential and kinetic energy?

The sum of potential and kinetic energy is called "mechanical energy". This is NOT conserved, though - unless you consider the microscopic scale, in which case (for example) heat energy is a type of kinetic energy. In this case, the sum is simply the total energy, and the total energy IS conserved.

### What is the total kinetic energy and potential energy?

It is the sum of potential and kinetic energy.

### Mechanical energy is the sum of the kinetic and?

Kinetic energy, and potential energy.

### How do you calculate an objects mechanical energy?

An object's mechanical energy is the sum of the potential and kinetic energy it possesses.

### Can objects mechanical energy be equal to its gravitational potential energy?

Yes. Mechanical energy is the sum of potential energy and kinetic energy; this includes gravitational potential energy.

### What energy is the sum of potential energy and kinetic energy in a system of objects?

The sum of the potential and kinetic energy of large-scale objects in a system is the Hamiltonian.

### Which type of energy is total kinetic and potential energy particles in an object?

Mechanical energy is the sum of kinetic and potential energy.

### What is the sum of potential and and Kinetic energy?

Internal energy at the microscopic level and thermodynamic or mechanical energy at the macroscopic level. According to conservation of energy the sum of kinetic and potential energy is zero.
