When physics uses the term work, it refers to some value that describes how effective a force is able to move the object according to the direction of that force. This is the formula: The technical way of computing this is to: Multiply the force F with the displacement of the object s. Compute the… Read More What is WORK?
When you encounter the generalized term potential energy it can refer to various types of energy such as gravitational potential energy, elastic potential energy, electric potential energy, chemical potential energy, radioactive potential energy, and many others. Potential energy is the type of energy that is stored or transferred when work is done on a system.… Read More What is GRAVITATIONAL POTENTIAL ENERGY?
You may have been told by your physics teacher that kinetic energy is the energy associated with motion. Let’s just put this definition into business form: It’s defined as strange as that because that formula is derived from the description of work and the description of instantaneous speed. See Complete Set of Topics for MECHANICS… Read More What is KINETIC ENERGY?
Physics uses the term energy in the same way that all other branches of science use it. You can best understand energy by its defining properties, especially, how it relates with work: Energy is an entity that can be passed from one object to another. Examples: (A) When you eat rice which is rich in… Read More What is ENERGY?
About a year ago I did a four-page horror comic called Gobbled for an anthology that vanished into thin air. I finally decided to post the whole comic at my comics blog, but if you stick around here I’ll show you how I put it together. It’s a pretty simple process, nothing tricky.Step One: Pencils.…
