    1. Potential energy- energy that is stored in by an object.
    2. Gravitational potential energy- achieved by doing work against the force of gravity.
    3. Work- the transfer of mechanical energy.
    4. Kinetic energy- the energy of motion.
    5. Mechanical energy- combination of kinetic and potential energy.
    6. Work-Kinetic energy theorem- the special relationship between doing work on an object and the resulting kinetic energy of the object.
    7. Negative work- removes energy from an object.
    8. Positive work- adds energy to an object.
    9. Conservative force- when a force does work on an object and the amount of work done is independent of the path taken.
    10. Non-conservative force- when a force does work on an object and the amount of work done is path-dependent.
