Module 6

Objectives:

After completing this module, students will be able to calculate the work done by constant forces and spring forces.  They will be able to explain work as the transfer of energy between various forms, such as kinetic energy and potential energy.  Students will also be able to apply the law of conservation of energy to physics problems.
