Student Must Know…
Key Words
- Energy is the ability to do work and/or the ability to change matter
- The unit for energy is joule (J)
- 1 joule is equal to 1 Newton∙ meter




- Kinetic energy is the energy of motion
KE = (1/2)mv2




- Potential energy is the energy of an object at rest
PE = mgh



Conservation of Energy
- energy is always conserved. (never created nor destroyed)
The total mechanical energy (ME) is constant in a system.

ME = KE + PE
