The Energy Conservation Act

Energy conservation law States that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Energy can only be conserved. Consider throwing a upwards. What are the forces acting on the ball? One is the weight of the ball can be pulled down. The next is the force behind rising on the balloon provided when the ball leaves the hand.

How far the ball travels upward? Answering this question can be easily to the law of conservation of energy. When the ball is thrown energy there is due to its speed and kinetic energy. His movement upwards the ball has potential energy and kinetic energy. Speed or velocity of the ball will be maximum when it leaves the hand and will be zero when it reaches the maximum height. Anytime speed reduce slowly (this is called as a delay versus acceleration where the veolocity increases continuously). The maximum height traveled by ball then can be determined by equating the potential energy of the destination (here kinetic energy is equal to 0, the ball is at rest), kinetic energy at the beginning of the query (here the potential energy is equal to 0).

Without the force of gravity, we would not drawn down for our planet and therefore we will be always floating upwards. The LCE can be used to make substantial diversions even the object lifted upwards does not in the vertical direction (or goes into a parabolic trajectory).

Imagine a marble is just rolling down a slope and is made to move in a circular ring, energy is conserved in this case as well. Can use the energy conservation act to determine the maximum time that the marble will be inside the circular ring.

How are we able to walk? We walk by the force of friction between foot and land surface. If there was no friction, we would be unable to stop walking. A ball which is rolling on stops floor at any time due to friction between the surface of land and the ball.
