Kinetic Energy and Potential Energy Kinetic energy is the energy of motion: Potential energy is the energy an object possesses by virtue of its position. Potential energy can be converted into kinetic energy. Example: a bicyclist at the top of a hill. The Nature of Energy The Nature of Energy 2 2 1 mv E k =
Kinetic Energy and Potential Energy Electrostatic potential energy, E d , is the attraction between two oppositely charged particles, Q 1 and Q 2 , a distance d apart: The constant κ = 8.99 × 10 9 J-m/C 2 . If the two particles are of opposite charge, then E d is the electrostatic attraction between them. The Nature of Energy The Nature of Energy d Q Q E d 2 1 κ =

Transferring Energy Work and Heat Force is a push or pull on an object. Work is the product of force applied to an object over a distance: Energy is the work done to move an object against a force. Heat is the transfer of energy between two objects. Energy is the capacity to do work or transfer heat. d F w × =
The First Law of Thermodynamics The First Law of Thermodynamics Energy is neither created or destroyed Total energy lost by a system equals the total energy gained by a system.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
