State the law of conservation of energy.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 9th Jul, 2014, 10:11: AM
The total energy of an isolated system remains constant, as long as all the forms of energy are accounted for. Energy may be transformed from one form to another but the total energy of the isolated system remains constant.

- An airplane with a mass of 2000 kg sinks 1000 metres moving forward a horizontal distance of 10,000 metres. What will be its new potential energy? (Take g = 10 m/s2)
- What is the source of the kinetic energy of the falling rain drop?
- Explain why the water at the foot of the waterfall is at different temperature from that at the top?
- A body is moving with the speed of 30 m/s. How high can it be lifted to gain an amount of potential energy equal to its kinetic energy. (Take g = 10 m/s2)
- A body falling from the height of 10 m rebounds from the hard surface. It loses 20% of its energy in impact. What is the height to which it would raise after the impact and where this energy goes after hitting the surface?
- Two springs have force constants k1 and k2 where k1 > k2. On which spring, more work is done if they are stretched by the same magnitude of force.
- If a block attached to a spring (whose one end is fixed) is pulled up to a distance xo and released, the amplitude of its motion cannot exceed why?
- Draw a plot of spring force versus displacement x. Hence find an expression for the P.E of an elastic spring.
- The potential energy of a spring when stretched through a distance x is 20 J. What amount of work has to be done on the same spring to stretch it through an additional distance x?
