## What is the meaning of energy?

Energy is a simple term which is most commonly used in physics. It is stated to be the property of the objects that can most probably be transferred to either other objects or for that matter be converted in to some other form. At times, people state that energy can be defined to be the ability of a certain system to perform work however, one has to remember the fact that energy may not be available for everything or for every work to be done.

And as far as the Newtonian physics is concerned then we can observe that in this kind of physics, there is something known as the ‘universal law of conservation of energy’. This universal law of conservation of energy goes on to state that energy is something which can neither be created nor for that matter be destroyed. But energy is said to change from 1 form to another form.

### Examples of energy transformation

The best examples for this energy transformation would include the generation of the electric energy from that of the heat energy & this mostly happens with the help of a stream turbine. While the other example could be the lifting of the object against that of the gravity when utilising electrical energy in the form of a crane motor.

### Formulae related to energy conversion tool

1. Potential energy is said to be the energy which happens to be the stored energy of a position. While the gravitational potential energy is the stored energy as per the vertical position of a certain object within the Earth’s gravitational field.

### Potential energy formula

$$PE_{grav}=m .g .h$$

In the above equation, mass of the object is represented by m (which is the standard unit of kilograms) while g happens to be the acceleration of gravity (that is 9. 8 m / s / s) with h being the height of the object (this is again the standard units of meters)

1. Kinetic energy is the energy which is possessed by a certain object due to the motion.

### Kinetic energy formula

$$KE=0.5 .m .v^{2}$$

In the above equation, m is stated to be the mass of an object (again with the standard units of kilograms) while v on the other hand is stated to be the speed of the object (and the standard units of m / s).

$$hence,\,total\, mechanical\, energy\, possessed\, by\, a\, certain\, object\,=\,kinetic\, energy\,+\,potential\, energy$$

## How to use an energy converter?

To make use of this online energy conversion tool, you would be required to first enter the numeral in the field marked for it & then select the unit in which the numeral is. Next step would be to select the unit in which the energy is to be converted in to. Once the above details have been entered / selected, an individual will have to click on the convert tab in order to know the result which means that they will have the energy converted.
