Today, we will look at some problems where we can use our knowledge of kinetic and gravitational potential energy to solve complex kinematics problems. Conservation of energy is a useful tool and a alternative to using Newton's Laws and kinematics. Remember that work and energy are scalar quantities.

We'll also do test corrections for Unit 2 - Dynamics in 2-D.
