Work and Energy
Lecture no. 11 from the course: Physics and Our Universe
Taught by Professor Richard Wolfson | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
See how the precise definition of work leads to the concept of energy. Then explore how some forces "give back" the work done against them. These conservative forces lead to the concept of stored potential energy, which can be converted to kinetic energy. From here, develop the important idea of conservation of energy.
