Let's say I'm pushing and accelerating an object using a long stick, like this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

H--------------O

-->

H is my hand, O is the object.

The force I use is F, the distance I push is s, the energy I use is Fs

The force pushing the object <= F

The distance that the object is pushed < s

So energy increase of the object < Fs

Is conservation of energy violated here?
