The mechanical energy is the form of energy that can be converted to mechanical work completely and directly by a mechanical device such as a propeller . It differs from thermal energy in that thermal energy cannot be converted to work directly and completely. The forms of mechanical energy of a fluid stream are kinetic, potential, and flow energies....
