Work, Energy and Power

Work done Work done by a force is the product of the forces and the distance moved in the direction of the force. SI unit: joule (J) – the SI unit of energy. 1...

Coulomb’s Law

Coulomb’s force is the electrical force between two charges. Since there are positive and negative charges, coulomb’s force can be attractive or repulsive. However, the magnitude of the force produced by a point charge...

Energy of a Simple Harmonic Oscillator

Energy changes in according to displacement The kinetic energy of a simple harmonic oscillator is In a SHM, the oscillator’s kinetic energy and potential energy always changes from maximum to zero throughout the oscillations....

Uniform Gravitational Force

Uniform gravitational force The gravitational force acting on a mass is called weight. Weight always acts vertically down and its magnitude is directly proportional to the mass. where g is the gravitational field strength on...
