    Image Upload

    • μk = coefficient of kinetic friction
    • F= normal force
  10. static friction

    Image Upload anything above that is kinetic friction
  11. Potential energy
    Image Upload
  12. Total mechanical energy
    Image Upload = constant

    • When there's no friction/air resistance

  14. Work
    W = Fdcosθ
  15. Power
    • Image Upload 
    • J/s = watts
  16. Work Energy theorem
    Image Upload
  17. Momentum
    Image Upload

    units: kg m/s
  18. Impulse

  19. Elastic collisions - objects dont stick
    • objects dont stick. Momentum and KE are conserved.
    • Image Upload
    • Image Upload
  20. Inelastic collisions
    • Kinetic energy is lost in the form of heat, light or sound therefore final KE is less that initial.
    • Momentum is conserved
  21. Completely Inelastic collisions
    • Objects stick together
    • Kinetic energy is not conserved. 
    • Momentum is conserved, objects have the same velocity after combining.
