This interactive tutorial explores mechanical interactions in the context of kinetic and potential energy. Detailed explanations and sample problems help the user understand how energy is transferred in a mechanical system when one object exerts force on another. Included are force diagrams, quick links to pertinent definitions, and links to animations that allow learners to visualize what is being discussed. Don't miss the link to the author's Flikr Gallery for a visual overview of work, energy, and power.
