Mission WE6: Energy Bar Charts

Mission WE6 focuses on the use of work-energy bar charts to describe the energy changes that are occuring for an object from the initial state to the final state of motion. The mission consists of 36 questions organized into 9 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcome for this mission is ...

Learning Outcome

  • The student should be able to utilize a bar chart and the work-energy relationship to analyze a physical situation and develop an equation which relates the energies of the initial and final states of a motion.
