Students will learn that work is simply the transfer of energy into or out of a system. Students will learn how to calculate the work done and how to incorporate it into energy conservation.
Learn about kinetic friction and how objects slide to a stop under the influence of friction.
Uncover the relationship between speed and kinetic energy in the context of a particle accelerator.
Learn about the conservation of energy in the context of a roller coaster.
Practice with the concepts of conservation of momentum and energy by analyzing a special case of the ballistic pendulum.
Learn about the relationship between force, work, and energy using a simple machine.
Uncover the relationship between weight and mass, on Earth and beyond.
Learn about the relationship between force, work, energy, and mechanical advantage using a simple machine.
Work is defined in this video, and an example is used to show how to calculate it.
Calculate work using equation for work. Includes basic trigonometry.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Work.
This is an activity for students to complete before and after reading the Work Concept.
What does it mean to do work? Can you do work without actually doing anything?
Learn about the world record deadlift and how physics determines how much work was done.
Discover the importance of work and power in becoming the worlds strongest man.
This study guide provides an overview of potential energy, kinetic energy, and energy conservation, as well as energy diagrams, work, conservative force, and non-conservative force.
