Title: Episode Alpha: Wrecking Physics
Other Titles: Energy
Creators: Van Woerkom, Linn; Heckler, Andrew
Contributors: Freeman, Lynn
Issue Date: 2004
Series/Report no.: Physics on the edge
Abstract: This episode introduces the concept of energy by showing that two different types of energy, kinetic and potential, are equivalent in the sense that they can produce the same results. In this case the result is a smashed car, either dropped from a height or run into a wall. Another demonstration takes place at a skateboard park showing that kinetic and potential energy can transform into each other.
