Mechanical Energy
By: Madison Martin and Tabitha Miller
What is Mechanical energy?

Mechanical Energy can push, pull, twist, turn, and throw. It is also the most popular form of energy. Mechanical energy is often known as the ability to do work. Motion and stored energy are the two parts of mechanical energy.
Mechanical energy can either be kinetic or potential energy.It is the energy that can be taken over by an object due to its motion or due to its position.
For example, machines and humans use mechanical energy to preform motions like throwing a ball or moving a pencil.

What is Mechanical Energy's equation?
The sum of mechanical energy is simply known as the Total Mechanical Energy ( abbreviated TME)
The total amount of mechanical energy is just the sum of the potential and kinetic energy
(mechanical Energy= potential energy + kinetic energy)
Its the sum of all the energy within the system.

How is Mechanical Energy is used in objects?
The energy made by objects where work is being made or forced on is called mechanical energy.The energy acquired by the objects upon which work is done is know as mechanical energy . Although other forces are always. An object with mechanical energy can capture that energy in order to apply a force that causes another object to be moved. Machines and humans use mechanical energy to preform motions like throwing a ball. although other forces are always working on a object, they're normally so tiny that they do not change the amount of mechanical energy an object has.
Examples: the mechanical energy of a hammer gives the hammer the ability to apply a force to a nail.
Mechanical Energy Example
Who discovered mechanical energy?
James Joule is the man who discovered mechanical energy. he also discovered the relationship between the loss and mechanical energy and gaining heat
