Analysis of situations in which mechanical energy is conserved
This online resource deals with the conservation of total mechanical energy.
The resource is a tutorial on the concepts of the conservation of total mechanical energy (TME) during energy transformations and covers the examples of a pendulum, a roller coaster and a ski jumper.
It also has an accompanying illustrative animation and plenty of practice applications for students to try.
Australian Curriculum v9 Codes: AC9S8U05 (Year 8), AC9S9U05 (Year 9)
A very thorough tutorial that covers the topic in great detail with animations and problems that students can try themselves to enhance the coverage.
