Slide 10-12
The Basic Energy Model
Slide 10-13
Energy Transformations
Kinetic energy K = energy of motion
Potential energy U = energy of position
Thermal energy Eth = energy associated with
temperature
System energy E = K + U + Eth + Echem + ...
Energy can be transformed within the
system without loss.
Energy is a property of a system.
Slide 10-14
Some Energy Transformations
Echem  Ug
K  Eth
Echem  Ug
Us  K  U g
Slide 10-15
Energy Transfers
These change the energy of the system.
Interactions with the environment.
Work is the mechanical transfer of energy to
or from a system via pushes and pulls.

Slide 10-21
The Law of Conservation of Energy
Slide 10-23
The Basic Equation
Kf  Uf  Eth  Ki  Ui + Esys
A few things to note:
• Esys can be positive (Energy in) or negative (Energy out)
• We are, for now, ignoring heat.
• Thermal energy is…special. When energy changes to
thermal energy, this change is irreversible.

and identifying energy transformations. Then answer the question.
3. Two balls, one twice as heavy as the other, are dropped from
the roof of a building. Just before hitting the ground, the
heavier ball has _________ the kinetic energy of the lighter
ball.
A. one-half
B. the same amount as
C. twice
D. four times

Conceptual Example Problem
A car sits at rest at the top of a hill. A small push sends it rolling
down a hill. After its height has dropped by 5.0 m, it is moving at a
good clip. Write down the equation for conservation of energy,
noting the choice of system, the initial and final states, and what
energy transformation has taken place.
