Elastic energy print that page

The concept of elastic energy is not confined to formal elasticity theory which primarily develops an analytical understanding of the mechanics of solid bodies and materials [ 1 ] :See Ch 1 §1 . The essence of elasticity is reversibility. Forces applied to an elastic material transfer energy

Energy print that page

Lightning_over_Oradea_Romania_zoom

In physics , energy ( Ancient Greek : ἐνέργεια   energeia  "activity, operation" [ 1 ] ) is an indirectly observed quantity. It is often understood as the ability a physical system has to do work on other physical systems. [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Since work is defined as a force acting

Reflection seismology print that page

Land_Seismic_Camp

wave encounters a boundary between two different materials with different impedances, some of the energy of the wave will be reflected off the boundary, while some of it will be transmitted through the boundary. In common with other geophysical methods, reflection seismology may be seen as

Elastic-rebound theory print that page

The elastic rebound theory is an explanation for how energy is spread during earthquakes. As plates on opposite sides of a fault are subjected to force and shift, they accumulate energy and slowly deform until their internal strength is exceeded. At that time, a sudden movement occurs along

Elastic modulus print that page

An elastic modulus , or modulus of elasticity , is the mathematical description of an object or substance's tendency to be deformed elastically (i.e., non-permanently) when a force is applied to it. The elastic modulus of an object is defined as the slope of its stress-strain curve in the

Elastic collision print that page

An elastic collision is an encounter between two bodies in which the total kinetic energy of the two bodies after the encounter is equal to their total kinetic energy before the encounter. Elastic collisions occur only if there is no net conversion of kinetic energy into other forms.

Potential energy print that page

Solar_sys

In physics , potential energy is the energy stored in a body or in a system due to its position in a force field or due to its configuration. [ 1 ] The SI unit of measure for energy and work is the Joule (symbol J). The term "potential energy " was coined by the 19th century Scottish

Kinetic energy print that page

Wooden_roller_coaster_txgi

The kinetic energy of an object is the energy which it possesses due to its motion . [ 1 ] It is defined as the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity . Having gained this energy during its acceleration , the body maintains this kinetic energy

Surface tension print that page

Surface_tension_March_2009-3

Surface tension has the dimension of force per unit length , or of energy per unit area . The two are equivalent—but when referring to energy per unit of area, people use the term surface energy —which is a more general term in the sense that it applies also to solids and not just

Strength of materials print that page

In materials science , the strength of a material is its ability to withstand an applied stress without failure. The applied stress may be tensile , compressive , or shear . Strength of materials is a subject which deals with loads, deformations and the forces acting on the material. A load
