Sir, this is just a stray comment, but as I was glancing through the Wikis, I saw here that the image attached with Work was $$W=F\times d$$ whereas it is actually $$W=F.d$$. In fact, the images attached to Potential Energy and Conservation of Mechanical Energy are a bit misleading as firstly it cannot be simply $$E_p$$ as absolute energy is not defined. $$E_p$$ could be taken only with respect to a set reference point. Also, the relation $$E_p=mgh$$ is strictly speaking incorrect. · 1 year, 1 month ago
