Application of the law of conservation of momentum is important in the solution of collision problems.Momentum: product of the mass and velocity of an object; momentum and velocity are moving in the same direction.4
Linear Momentum Conservation5
Potential EnergyPotential energy is stored energy in an object not in motion; exists as a result of its position or condition.Formula depends on the forces at work and the constituents of a system6
Potential Energy7
Kinetic EnergyKinetic energy is possessed by an object due to its motion.8
Work, Energy and Power9Work: a force applied over a distance; done when an object moves with the application of external forceEnergy: the ability to perform work; can neither be created nor destroyedPower: rate of doing work; amount of energy consumed per unit time
Work, Energy and Power10
TorqueTorque: a measure of the force that can cause an object to rotate about an axis; torque causes an object to acquire angular acceleration.11
