All About Energy: 7-page booklet of conceptual explanations and examples for A-level Mechanics 2

Designed specifically for the Mechanics 2 syllabus, but equally valid and useful for studying energy in A-level Physics, the booklet explains the key concepts that are so crucial and so often misunderstood: Force, Energy, Power Conservation of energy Energy transfer examples Common types of energy How much energy? (compare fuels, food and drink, lightning, AA batteries, etc...) Work done by a constant force (not necessarily acting in the direction of motion) Gravitational Potential Energy Kinetic Energy Work done by variable forces (using integration) Elastic Potential Energy
