In this Work, Energy and Power section of Physics we cover the topics listed in the table below, each topic has a written tutorial (which you can read on your screen, print to read or use a web reader), a video tutorial, revision notes, revision questions and supporting calculators which allow you to check your own computations and calculations.
|5.1||Work and Energy. Types of Energy|
|5.3||Gravitational Potential Energy|
|5.4||Elastic Potential Energy and Combination of Springs|
|5.5||Power and Efficiency|
This section begins with the meaning of work and its relationship with energy, then it continues with a look at various types of energy that are analyzed and illustrated with examples. Other topics covered include the law of energy conservation, the energy stored in a stretched or compressed spring and concepts such as power and efficiency.
In addition to the Work, Energy and Power tutorials, we also provide online Work, Energy and Power Calculators which allow you to calculate specific Work, Energy and Power formula in support of the tutorials or to check and verify your own calculations in support of your homework, coursework or thesis.
The following Physics Calculators are provided in support of the Work, Energy and Power tutorials.
