## Free Fall Experiment

This simulation allows you to measure speed as a function of fall height. Free fall movement All objects on Earth are affected by gravity. If there were no friction with air, the speed of any object would increase by 9.8 … more

## Mechanical Energy Conversion 2

Mechanical energy As the roller coaster descends from a high place, the height decreases, and the speed increases, so the potential energy decreases, and the kinetic energy increases. Therefore, potential energy is converted into kinetic energy while the roller coaster … more

## Where did the droplet’s energy go? (The second law of thermodynamics and irreversible phenomena)

* In this simulation, the attraction between particles is not considered. Where did the droplet’s energy go? Let’s think about the free fall of a water drop. From a macro perspective, falling water droplets change position over time. In this … more

## Where did the pendulum’s energy go? (The second law of thermodynamics and irreversible phenomena)

Where did the pendulum’s energy go? A pendulum that vibrates in the air continues to collide with air molecules in the process of vibrating. Air molecules get their energy from the pendulum. In this process, Air molecules increase their speed. … more

## Conservation of Mechanical Energy

Potential energy The potential energy of an object is the energy stored in an object or system. Denoted as Ep. Generally speaking, potential energy refers to potential energy caused by gravity and is proportional to an object’s mass and height. … more

## Conservation of Mechanical Energy in Rollercoaster

Conservation of Mechanical Energy If you look at the roller coasters, you can find something interesting. That’s right. There is no engine on the roller coaster. When we lift the roller coaster to the highest point, then the roller coaster … more

## What is the fastest at the moment of hitting the ground? (Terminal Velocity)

Mechanical energy Mechanical energy is the sum of potential and kinetic energy. Mechanical energy = potential energy + kinetic energy Em = EP + EK Mechanical energy conservation Without friction, the sum of an object’s initial mechanical energy is equal … more
