• Work can either be done on the system or by the system on the surrounding environment. • Work Sign Convention – W > 0 : Work done by the system – W < 0 : Work done on the system – Time rate of work is Power: Work Energy Transfer W Conservation of Energy: Mechanics Change in amount of energy contained within the system during some time interval + Net amount of energy
