This is our complete Work-Energy theorem. It is powerfully simple, and gives us a direct relation 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 Work-Energy 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. Prev Section Next Section SPONSORED CONTENT Make the Most of Your Hotel Stay.

    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.
