Review Over Energy

Potential Energy

It is the stored energy of position possessed by an object. There are other forms of potential energy as well, gravitational and elastic. Gravitational Potential Energy is the energy stored in an object as the result of its vertical position or height attraction towards the earth and Elastic Potential Energy is the energy stored in elastic materials as the result of their stretching or compressing.


Kinetic Energy

is the energy of motion and is also a scalar quantity. Like potential energy, Kinetic Energy has oter forms: Vibrational, Rotational, and Translational. The equation for Kinetic Energy is KE=1/2*m*v^2


Conservation of Energy

also known as the law of the conservation of energy. it is a principle stating that the total energy of an isolated system remains constant regardless of changes within the system.
