Hooke’s Law is a law that says the restoring force required to compress or stretch a spring is proportional to the distance the spring is deformed. The formula form of Hooke’s Law is F = -k·Δx where F is the restoring force of the spring k is the proportionality constant […]

What temperature are Fahrenheit and Kelvin equal to each other? This question is similar to the popular homework question “When does Celsius equal Fahrenheit?” where the two different temperature scales read the same value. This example problem not only gives you the answer, it shows step by step, how to […]

## What Temperature Are Fahrenheit and Kelvin Equal?

Potential energy is energy attributed to an object by virtue of its position. When the position is changed, the total energy remains unchanged but is converted to a different type of energy, like kinetic energy. The frictionless roller coaster is a classic potential and kinetic energy example problem. The roller […]

A collision is considered an inelastic collision when kinetic energy is lost during the collision. This inelastic collision example problem will show how to find the final velocity of a system and the amount of energy lost from the collision. Inelastic Collision Example Problem Question: A 3000 kg truck travelling […]

Elastic collisions are collisions between objects where both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved. This elastic collision example problem will show how to find the final velocities of two bodies after an elastic collision. This illustration shows a generic elastic collision between two masses A and B. The variables involved […]
