Conversion of Gravitational Potential Energy into Mechanical Energy

The first law of thermodynamics states that energy is neither created nor destroyed. It can, however, be transformed from one form to another. One type of energy that we are most familiar with is kinetic energy, or the energy of movement. Gravitational potential energy is energy due to an object’s position. An object in the air has gravitational potential energy because when released, it will...
