Energy of Point Object Systems

by Jared Rovny, PhD

Energy is the property transferred to an object that allows it to generate work. Energy in the universe is fixed, implying that it can be transferred but not created or destroyed. It exists in many forms—kinetic (moving energy), potential (storing energy), elastic (stretching energy), chemical (reaction energy), radiant (light energy), and thermal (temperature energy)—and it stays constant overall as it is transferred from one form to another. This course covers potential and kinetic energy and how to use conservation of energy in simple scenarios. This will be an extremely useful skill set for simplifying complex physics problems down the line.
