Mechanical Energy

Mechanical energy is the sum of kinetic energy and potential energy generating from the force of gravity or the movement released in machine movement.

Mechanical Energy Formula

\(ME =  PE + KE \)

Where:

\(ME \) = mechanical energy

\(PE\) = potential energy

\(KE\) = kinetic energy
