Ir J.W. Welleman Work and Energy methods2 Potential Energy EpEp h F g =mg plane of reference mgh 2 mgh 1 h hh mgh 2 mgh 1 no kinetic energy (statics)

3
Ir J.W. Welleman Work and Energy methods3 Total Energy Sum of all energy in a system is constant Sum of all Potential energy = C Potential energy: –Loads (energy with respect to reference, reduces) –Strain energie (E v, increases)
