## Work Energy

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

### Work Energy formula

$$\large{ W=\Delta E = E_2 \;-\; E_1 }$$

Where:

$$\large{ W }$$ = work

$$\large{ \Delta E }$$ = energy differential

$$\large{ E }$$ = energy
