Physics: Energy

Work, Energies, mechanical energy, elastic potential energy, friction

Is energy (all types) conserved? YES
What is Work? amount of energy used applying a force for a certain distance.
What are the types of potential energy? PE due to gravity and elastic PE
In case of friction, what is the mechanical energy transformed into? Heat and/or sound.
What is elastic potential energy? Energy created by applying a force on a spring transferring energy into the spring.
What is potential energy due to gravity? It is the energy created from the position(height) of objected acted on by created by the attraction (force of gravity)
What is potential energy? Energy on an not moving object created by the location/position.
What is kinetic energy? Energy stored/gained by velocity and mass of the object in motion.
Does the reference point for height = 0 in an equation of PE and KE affect the result? No, because the KE friction won't be 0 anymore and would have a potential energy since the reference line is lower.
Is mechanical energy always conserved? NO
