conservation of Energy

energy is the ability to do work
kinetic energy energy that an object has due to its motion
kinetic energy calculated by taking 1/2 of the product of the mass times the square of the velocity
potential energy energy that an object has due to its shape or position
graviatational potential energy energy an object has due to its height above the earth's surface and its weight
law of conservation of energy states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed by ordinary means
mechanical energy the energy associated with motion (kinetic energy)
heat energy the internal energy of a body (the total kinetic and potential energy of the particles in the body)
chemical energy the energy a substance has due to the chemical bonds found within its molecules
electromagnetic energy energy associated with a moving electric charge
nuclear energy the energy contained within the nucleus of an atom (most concentrated form of energy)
the more massive body consider two moving objects. each is moving at the same velocity. one is more massive than the other. which one has the greate kinetic energy
the body with the higher speed consider two bodies of the same mass. one is moving faster than the other. which one has the greater kinetic energy
kinetic energy to potential energy one of the most common energy conversions involges te changing of what?
