Vertical component: Portion of the force along the y-axis.
Elastic potential energy: energy available for use when an elastic body returns to its original configuration.
Work: Transfer of energy to a body by the application of a force.
Positive work: Work done by the force and the force are in the same direction, i.E. Degrees difference between their direction.
Gravitational PE: Potential energy stored in the gravitational fields of interacting bodies.
Negative work: Work done by a force being in opposite directions.
Horizontal component: Portion of force along the x-axis.
Mechanical energy: The amount of work an object can do because of the object's kinetic and potential energies.
Spring constant: An expression of the ratio of force to displacement for a spring or other elastic material.
Cons mechanical energy: In the absence of friction, the total mechanical energy remains the same.
Potential energy: Energy that an object has because of the position, shape, or condition of the object.
Relaxed length: The length of a spring when no external forces are acting on it.
Non mechanical energy: Forms of energy that are difficult to account for.
Power: A quantity that measures the rate at which work is done or energy is transformed.
Work- KE theorem: The theorem that states that the change in kinetic energy of a moving particle is equal to the work done by all of the forces acting on the particle.
Kinetic energy: Energy of an object that is due to the object's motion.
