Work and Energy

Exploring Engineering Fundamentals Logo
This module introduces the concept of work and creates the equations for work of a force, gravity, and a spring. Kinetic and potential energy are discussed in various forms, and the conservation of energy is explained. This section has various interactive examples to encourage learning, such as interactive demonstrations of work and MapleSim examples and videos. Power and mechanical efficiency are also briefly mentioned. Keywords & Topics:
work, gravitational, spring, energy, kinetic, potential, conservation of energy, power, dynamics
Main Topic: Kinematics & Dynamics
