Work and Power

Work and Power

This interactive presentation, created by authors James Bourassa and John Rosz, explains the calculations and physics behind work and power calculations. The authors address how these calculations play a vital role in engineering practices and methods. The format of the lesson is akin to an animated PowerPoint presentation. Each slide is filled with flash animations lined with the mathematical formulas behind the physics of the problem. Following the lesson is much easier because of the thoroughness of each individual slide. This is a great resource for either a student or educator interested in either engineering or just simply physics.
