For Question, give a specific example of a system with the energy transformation shown. In these questions, W is the work done on the system, and are the kinetic, potential, and thermal energies of the system, respectively. Any energy not mentioned in the transformation is assumed to remain constant; if work is not mentioned, it is assumed to be zero. U ?? ?K
ANSWER: U K In the above equation, potential energy converted to kinetic energy. One of the easiest example for this is, The example of a bullet fired from the gun. There is a spring present inside the gun, while triggering the squeezed spring gets free, all it’s potential energy gets converted to kinetic energy and transferred to the bullet. So, the bullet moves with an enormous speed. As the bullet got a high velocity which was zero before, it has kinetic energy now too. Because kinetic energy is some constant multiplies with the velocity squared.
