Mission WE10: Work-Energy Analysis

Mission WE10 focuses on the mathematical relationships between the work done by non-conservative forces and the kinetic and potential energies of an object. Energy formulas will have to be used to calculate such quantities as work, kinetic energy, potential energy, speed, and height. The mission consists of 16 questions organized into 8 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 conduct an energy analysis to determine the kinetic and/or the potential energy of an object at a given location.
