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.

**(Eq 1) ** $T_1+V_1=T_2+V_2$

T_{1} = Initial Kinetic Energy

T_{2} = Final Kinetic Energy

V_{1} = Initial Potential Energy

V_{2} = Final Potential Energy
