Dynamics: Conservation of Energy

From the laws of thermodynamics energy cannot be created or destroyed. This in turn would result in the potential energy of a rigid body equaling the kinetic energy of a rigid body, if there is no loss of energy due to heat, friction, or drag. Refer to equation 6 to view the conservation of energy equation.

Conservation of energy (1)

T1 = Initial Kinetic Energy

T2 = Final Kinetic Energy

V1 = Initial Potential Energy

V2 = Final Potential Energy
