Work Energy

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Energy is never created or destroyed but external work performed on a conservative system goes into changing the system's total energy.

formula

\(W=\Delta E = E_2 \;-\; E_1 \;\)

Where:

\(W\) = work

\(\Delta E\) = energy differential

\(E\) = energy
