what is the equation for elastic potential energy?

Ee = 1/2 k (e x e)

what is the equation for efficiency of energy?

efficiency = useful output energy / total input energy

P = E/t

if the distance (s) = 5m and the force (F) = 50N what is the work done (j)?

5 x 50 = 250j

if the weight (W) = 49 and the gravitational field strength (g) is on earth what is the mass?

49/9.8 = 5kg

if the gravitational potential energy (Eg) = 120, the gravitational field strength (g) is on earth and the height (h) = 150 what is the mass (m)

120/9.8 x 150 = 0.08kg

if the mass (m) = 1200 the velocity (v) = 20 what is the kinetic energy?

0.5 x 1200 x (20 x 20) = 240000j

if the spring constant (k) = 5 and the extension (e) = 0.2 what is the elastic potential energy?

0.5 x 5 x 0.04 = 0.1j
