If F and x are not
collinear, then:
W = F x Cos
Where is the angle

Work & Energy
v2 = u2 + 2as
If we multiply through
by mass m and
Fs = ½mv2 - ½mu2
Work done = Change of
Energy (in this case,
Kinetic)…read more

So Work is NOT
equal to Energy.
Instead, Work causes
a change of energy.…read more

Work & Power
P = E/t
Power is the rate of
change of energy.
OR, since
P = W/t
Power is the rate of
doing work.…read more

Since W = Fx and if F is
P = F x/t = Fv
Here the power moves
the object at a constant
velocity, v against a
constant resistive force,
F.…read more

Conservation of
The total energy of a
closed system is
constant and can only
be converted between
different energy types.
E.g. so you can assume
loss of gravitational
potential energy = gain
in kinetic energy etc.…read more
