Conservation of Energy

Kenzie Creath - Period 2

Definition of Conservation of Energy

the fundamental principle of physics that the total energy of an isolated system is constant despite internal changes

Potential Energy

the mechanical energy that a body has by virtue of its position; stored energy

Kinetic Energy

The energy possessed by a system or object as a result of its motion. The kinetic energy of objects with mass is dependent upon the velocity and mass of the object, while the energy of waves depends on their velocity, frequency, and amplitude, as well as the density of the medium if there is one
