Work and Kinetic Energy

In this module, we will examine two of the most important concepts in physics, Work & Kinetic Energy. These two concepts are linked by the Work Energy Theorem which connects our previous work on Newton's Laws to an even more general and powerful solution technique for solving physics problems called Energy Analysis. Prior to starting this module, you will need to review the math that we will be using which is called the Dot Product. This material is in the Vector Module.
