The satellite's acceleration is represented by the green vector and its velocity is represented by the red vector. If the satellite's orbit is an ellipse the potential energy of the satellite, and its kinetic energy, both vary with time but their sum remains constant.

In physical sciences, mechanical energy is the sum of potential energy and kinetic energy. The principle of conservation of mechanical energy states that if an isolated system is subject only vĩ đại conservative forces, then the mechanical energy is constant. If an object moves in the opposite direction of a conservative net force, the potential energy will increase; and if the tốc độ (not the velocity) of the object changes, the kinetic energy of the object also changes. In all real systems, however, nonconservative forces, such as frictional forces, will be present, but if they are of negligible magnitude, the mechanical energy changes little and its conservation is a useful approximation. In elastic collisions, the kinetic energy is conserved, but in inelastic collisions some mechanical energy may be converted into thermal energy. The equivalence between lost mechanical energy and an increase in temperature was discovered by James Prescott Joule.

Many devices are used vĩ đại convert mechanical energy vĩ đại or from other forms of energy, e.g. an electric motor converts electrical energy vĩ đại mechanical energy, an electric generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy and a heat engine converts heat vĩ đại mechanical energy.

## General

Energy is a scalar quantity and the mechanical energy of a system is the sum of the potential energy (which is measured by the position of the parts of the system) and the kinetic energy (which is also called the energy of motion): The potential energy, U, depends on the position of an object subjected vĩ đại gravity or some other conservative force. The gravitational potential energy of an object is equal vĩ đại the weight W of the object multiplied by the height h of the object's center of gravity relative vĩ đại an arbitrary datum: The potential energy of an object can be defined as the object's ability vĩ đại tự work and is increased as the object is moved in the opposite direction of the direction of the force.[nb 1] If F represents the conservative force and x the position, the potential energy of the force between the two positions x1 and x2 is defined as the negative integral of F from x1 vĩ đại x2: The kinetic energy, K, depends on the tốc độ of an object and is the ability of a moving object vĩ đại tự work on other objects when it collides with them.[nb 2] It is defined as one half the product of the object's mass with the square of its tốc độ, and the total kinetic energy of a system of objects is the sum of the kinetic energies of the respective objects: The principle of conservation of mechanical energy states that if a body toàn thân or system is subjected only vĩ đại conservative forces, the mechanical energy of that body toàn thân or system remains constant. The difference between a conservative and a non-conservative force is that when a conservative force moves an object from one point vĩ đại another, the work done by the conservative force is independent of the path. On the contrary, when a non-conservative force acts upon an object, the work done by the non-conservative force is dependent of the path.

## Conservation of mechanical energy

According vĩ đại the principle of conservation of mechanical energy, the mechanical energy of an isolated system remains constant in time, as long as the system is không tính phí of friction and other non-conservative forces. In any real situation, frictional forces and other non-conservative forces are present, but in many cases their effects on the system are sánh small that the principle of conservation of mechanical energy can be used as a fair approximation. Though energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can be converted vĩ đại another sườn of energy.

### Swinging pendulum A swinging pendulum with the velocity vector (green) and acceleration vector (blue). The magnitude of the velocity vector, the tốc độ, of the pendulum is greatest in the vertical position and the pendulum is farthest from Earth in its extreme positions.

In a mechanical system lượt thích a swinging pendulum subjected vĩ đại the conservative gravitational force where frictional forces lượt thích air drag and friction at the pivot are negligible, energy passes back and forth between kinetic and potential energy but never leaves the system. The pendulum reaches greatest kinetic energy and least potential energy when in the vertical position, because it will have the greatest tốc độ and be nearest the Earth at this point. On the other hand, it will have its least kinetic energy and greatest potential energy at the extreme positions of its swing, because it has zero tốc độ and is farthest from Earth at these points. However, when taking the frictional forces into tài khoản, the system loses mechanical energy with each swing because of the negative work done on the pendulum by these non-conservative forces.

### Irreversibilities

That the loss of mechanical energy in a system always resulted in an increase of the system's temperature has been known for a long time, but it was the amateur physicist James Prescott Joule who first experimentally demonstrated how a certain amount of work done against friction resulted in a definite quantity of heat which should be conceived as the random motions of the particles that comprise matter. This equivalence between mechanical energy and heat is especially important when considering colliding objects. In an elastic collision, mechanical energy is conserved – the sum of the mechanical energies of the colliding objects is the same before and after the collision. After an inelastic collision, however, the mechanical energy of the system will have changed. Usually, the mechanical energy before the collision is greater than thở the mechanical energy after the collision. In inelastic collisions, some of the mechanical energy of the colliding objects is transformed into kinetic energy of the constituent particles. This increase in kinetic energy of the constituent particles is perceived as an increase in temperature. The collision can be described by saying some of the mechanical energy of the colliding objects has been converted into an equal amount of heat. Thus, the total energy of the system remains unchanged though the mechanical energy of the system has reduced.

Hence, mechanical energy of the satellite-Earth system is given by  If the satellite is in circular orbit, the energy conservation equation can be further simplified into since in circular motion, Newton's 2nd Law of motion can be taken vĩ đại be ## Conversion

Today, many technological devices convert mechanical energy into other forms of energy or vice versa. These devices can be placed in these categories:

• An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
• A generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy.
• A hydroelectric powerplant converts the mechanical energy of water in a storage dam into electrical energy.
• An internal combustion engine is a heat engine that obtains mechanical energy from chemical energy by burning fuel. From this mechanical energy, the internal combustion engine often generates electricity.
• A steam engine converts the heat energy of steam into mechanical energy.
• A turbine converts the kinetic energy of a stream of gas or liquid into mechanical energy.

## Distinction from other types

The classification of energy into different types often follows the boundaries of the fields of study in the natural sciences.

• Chemical energy is the kind of potential energy "stored" in chemical bonds and is studied in chemistry.
• Nuclear energy is energy stored in interactions between the particles in the atomic nucleus and is studied in nuclear physics.
• Electromagnetic energy is in the sườn of electric charges, magnetic fields, and photons. It is studied in electromagnetism.
• Various forms of energy in quantum mechanics; e.g., the energy levels of electrons in an atom.
