Unit 4: Newtonian Mechanics – Energy

Everything we’ve studied thus far only exists because of one supreme yet invisible “thing” called energy. It’s not really a “thing” because it has no mass. Instead it is simply an ability. The best part is, it’s the only “thing” that actually exists! So energy isn’t a thing, but it’s the only thing, and it’s the only reason anything that we could call a “thing” can exist or move or change. Believe it or not, this will actually make sense to you by the time you finish this course!

Transformations of energy are the key to engineering classic roller coasters, such as the Millennium Force at Cedar Point.
