Unformatted text preview: between net work and kinetic energy. Stated verbally, the equations says that net work done by forces on a particle causes a change in the kinetic energy of the particle. Though the full applicability of the WorkEnergy theorem cannot be seen until we study the conservation of energy , we can use the theorem now to calculate the velocity of a particle given a known force at any position. This capability is useful, since it relates our derived concept of work back to simple kinematics. A further study of the concept of energy, however, will yield far greater uses for this important equation....
