Work, Energy, and Power

Our Work, Energy, and Power unit represents an effort to present a model of energy as a tool for analyzing the motion of an object. The model relies on the confidence that energy can be kept track of; and because it can, we are able to make predictions of how fast an object will move, how hight it will go, and how far it will slide. The set of Video Tutorials below describe all sorts of applications of work and energy to the analysis of physical situations.

We have provided links to all finished videos. Video titles without links are videos that we plan to eventually create. The best way to get the newest content is to subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
