We're going to look and kinetic and potential energy and define them. You'll be able to give the input, output and wasted forms of energy, for various forms of energy transfer including situations involving movement, forces, electricity and magnetism, light, sound, waves, and heat.

We'll look at at how simple machines reduce the forces required to do a task, while the energy transfer remains the same, defining the term mechanical advantage.
