View Resource The Physics Classroom: The Work-Energy Theorem

Created by author Tom Henderson, this page is a tutorial that features bar charts to explore the relationship between work and energy. Work-Energy bar charts are a conceptual tool which depict the amount of each form of energy within a system as it undergoes a particular motion or process. This resource offers comprehensive guidance in how to read and understand energy bar charts, animations...

View Resource The Physics Classroom: Which Path Requires the Most Energy?

Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this page features animations of carts traveling at constant speed on three inclines of equal distance but varying slopes. Students can observe how the variables of force and displacement affect the amount of work done by each cart. The question for students to consider is which path requires the most energy. This item is part of The Physics...

View Resource Zona Land: Energy

This webpage is a tutorial on work and energy designed and maintained by a high school physics teacher. Topics include kinetic and potential energy, spring potential energy, GPE, heat and temperature, and nuclear energy. The author uses an entertaining blend of text and interactive simulations to engage the student. NOTE: The full potential of this resource cannot be viewed without a VRML...

View Resource The Physics Zone

Science Joy Wagon and the Ithaca City School District offer the Physics Zone Web site as a resource for algebra-based physics courses. Numerous interactive lessons, simulations, descriptions, and other online learning material are categorized into nine subjects including motion; forces; work and energy; momentum; electricity and magnetism; waves, light, and sound; modern physics; and nuclear...

View Resource The Physics Classroom: Energy Terminology and Concepts

This item, created by Tom Henderson, is is a five-part tutorial on energy basics written for high school students. The author approaches work and energy as a means to analyze the motion of objects. Detailed explanations and sample problems allow users to explore potential, kinetic, and mechanical energy, while also introducing related equations. Included are force diagrams, quick links to...
