Qasim Tariq 11-01-2020Notes

After studying this unit, the students will be able to:

  • define work and its SI unit.
  • calculate work done using equation
    Work = force x distance moved in the direction of force
  • define energy, kinetic energy and potential energy.
  • State unit of energy.
  • prove that kinetic energy K.E. = mv^2 and potential energy P.E. = mgh.
  • Solve problems using these equations.
  • list the different forms of energy with examples.
  • describe the processes by which energy is converted from one form to another with reference to
    fossil fuel energy
    hydroelectric generation
    solar energy
    nuclear energy
    geothermal energy
    wind energy
    biomass energy
  • state mass energy equation E = mc^2 and solve problems using it.
  • describe the process of electricity generation by drawing a block diagram of the process from fossil fuel input to electricity output.
  • list the environmental issues associated with power generation.
  • explain by drawing energy flow diagrams through steady state systems such as filament lamp, a power station, a vehicle travelling at a constant speed on a level road.
  • differentiate energy sources as non renewable and renewable energy sources with examples of each.
  • define efficiency of a working system and calculate the efficiency of an energy conversion using the formula: efficiency = energy output converted into the required form / total energy input
  • explain why a system cannot have an efficiency of 100%.
  • define power and calculate power from the formula: Power = work done / time taken
  • define the unit of power "watt" in SI and its conversion with horse power.
  • Solve problems using mathematical relations learnt in this unit.

Aim and Purposes:

Education is very expensive nowadays. Our only purpose is to educate everyone for free. We want to bring an educational revolution. Our aim is that nobody should be left behind, everyone should get knowledge and quench his thirst for knowledge. For this noble cause, we have hired a lot of experienced teachers and technical experts, who are serving you without any cost. If you want to be a part of this noble cause, you can contact us at

Report a mistake:

EducatedZone has been working for the help of students since 2017. With the passage of time, many senior students and teachers have joined our team to become the part of this noble cause. They provide us notes and helping material to share with public. As different persons are notes provider so there may be a chance of mistake in some notes. Although it happens rarely, but if you find some mistake in the helping material, you can report it at
