## 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
