Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Concept Builder, Work and Energy Section: Work

In this Concept Builder, you will learn to identify whether positive, negative, or zero work is being done, to identify the force that is doing the work, and to describe the energy transformation associated with such work. It's this third activity that is most associated with this video.

Concept Builder, Work and Energy Section: Name That Energy

Gain some familiarity with the three forms of mechanical energy with this interactive exerise. 


Concept Builder, Work and Energy Section: What's Up (and Down) with KE and PE

Read a physical description and identify whether the KE (and the PE) is increasing or decreasing.


Physics Tutorial - Work, Energy, and Power Chapter

When you need to brush up on any topic, we recommend a trip to the Physics Classroom Tutorial. Its easy-to-understand language combined with informative graphics and appeals to your sense of reason make this a powerful learning tool.
