Work and energy, how are they related.
Work=Force x Distance.
The exact definition of work is the use of force to move an object.
Pictured is a car which is run by an engine, the engine is doing work as it moves the car.
These two leaping dolphins have created energy. They turn their potential energy into Kinetic energy. As they fly through the air, only momentum and gravity act on them.
If we were given their mass and velocity we could find what their kinetic energy equals.
This is a picture of a Ferris wheel spinning. The motor makes mechanical energy and transfers it to the cart. This motion is constant and kinetic.
This picture describes the Law of Conservation of Energy.
As coal is burned, it is transformed into electricity. As the electricity sits in the power line, it is potential. When the switch is hit, the energy is sent to the bulb which produces kinetic energy. The kinetic energy is then shone down on us, plants, and almost everything. When plants soak up light, this is acting in the same way as conserving energy. As this law stated, energy cannot be created or destroyed, so it is only transformed and absorbed.
