-Every object in motion contains mechanical energy.
- Mechanical energy can not be created nor destroyed, but it can be converted to another type of energy.
- When an object looses mechanical energy, it gains heat or increases in temperature.

An advantage of Mechanical energy is if you choose to do the work yourself, you could get extra cardio to stay healthy. A disadvantage is if you need electricity in your house and your house is powered by wind turbines, if there is no wind then you will not have any electricity.
