1. Potential energy- energy that is stored in by an object.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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.
