Do we carry kinetic energy from dark energy
« on: 06/06/2016 15:43:11 »
When dark energy pushes the Galaxy clusteror or even when are solar system moves around black hole do we humans carry kinetic or potential energy do to that movement?

I'd like to answer your question but I can't understand what you're asking due to the way that you phrased it. Can you rephrase it for me please? For example: at first you're asking about dark energy which causes galaxies to accelerate away from each other. Then you say "dark energy pushes the Galaxy clusteror ..". By this do you mean that they're pushed apart or just "pushed"? If the later then where are they being pushed?

You ask "when are solar system moves around black hole do we humans carry kinetic or potential energy do to that movement?" I suppose you can say yes but we don't typically say that objects "carry" energy. They simply have it. For example: a human orbiting a black hole doesn't carry potential energy. It merely "has" potential energy".
