E-book, Other


These Physics I lecture notes cover several topics. These include:

  • Energy and Work: energy transformations and conservation of energy; energy of system and surroundings; definition of kinetic energy, with equation (K = 1/2mv2); definition of work done by a constant force, with equation (Wapplied = Fx*? x).
  • Power: definition of Work-Kinetic Energy Theorem (Kf = Ki + Wf, i); work done by non-constant force; work done along an arbitrary path; line integrals; definition of average power; definition of instantaneous power.
  • Experiment 5B: friction experiment setup and procedure.
