• Kinetic energy is simply E moving . For translational energy, the indicator is speed ; the faster an object moves, the more KE it has. There is a quantitative relationship between KE and speed. Also, it is proportional to the mass of the object: The direction of motion of the object is unimportant. KE trans = ½ m v 2 Baseba ll Work KE KE Speed Speed

PE grav Height PE gravity = mg h Gravitational potential energy-system exists for each pair of objects interacting by the gravitational force ∆PE gravity depends on two quantities: the change in vertical distance that the object moved, and the mass of the object. Usually, we focus on the gravitational potential energy due to the interaction between an object and the Earth. Crumpled Paper KE Speed Note: we are neglecting friction

Springs contain energy when you stretch or compress them. We will use them a lot in Physics 7. The indicator is how much the spring is stretched or compressed, x, from its equilibrium (rest) state. k is a measure of the “stiffness” of the spring, with units [k] = kg/s 2 . x: Much easier to stretch a spring a little bit than a lot!

    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.
