p1 - conservation and dissipation of energy

Conservation of energy
energy cannot be created or destroyed
1 of 11
Dissipated energy/ dissipation of energy
the energy that is not usefully transferred and stored in less useful ways
2 of 11
Efficiency
useful energy transferred by a device total energy supplied to the device
3 of 11
Elastic potential energy
energy stored in an elastic object as a result of it being deformed. For example, a stretched spring
4 of 11
Hooke's law
the extension of a spring is directly proportional to the force applied, as long as its limit of proportionality is not exceeded
5 of 11
Input energy
energy supplied to a device
6 of 11
Power
the energy transformed or transferred per second. The unit of power is the watt (w)
7 of 11
Spring constant
force per unit extension of a spring
8 of 11
Useful energy
energy transferred to where it is wanted in the way that it is wanted
9 of 11
Wasted energy
energy that is not usually transferred
10 of 11
Work
the energy transferred by a force. Work done (joules, J) = force (newtons, N) x distance moved in the direction of the force (metres, m)
