Success in the portion of our class covering the Work-Energy
perspective on particle dynamics is determined by your being able
to accomplish the tasks listed below.  The major objectives are
listed by number.  The list under each major objective includes
both subtopics of that objective (usually topics which are
required for a complete understanding of that major objective)
and also the multiple representations of the task in which you
are expected to be proficient.

1. Understand and apply the definition of work done on
a particle by a given force, one that is uniform
in space
Scalar product of vectors
Multiple forms of the definition
FBD's or extended FBD's with accompanying displacement vectors

2. Understand and apply the definition of work done on
a particle by a given force, one that is varying
in space
For a varying force that is always parallel, or
antiparallel, to the path (e.g. friction on roundtrip in 2D)
For one dimensional motion, graphs of force versus position
For one dimensional motion, equations of force versus position
(e.g. harmonic or anharmonic springs)

3. Understand and apply the Work-Kinetic Energy Theorem
for particle motion
Definition of kinetic energy
Source of the theorem
Meaning of positive, negative, or zero net work
For 1D motion, graphs of net force versus position
For 1D motion, equations of net force versus position

4. Understand and apply the ideal spring approximation
(one end fixed)
FBD's and extended FBD's for object at free end,
and/or for spring
Graphs of spring force versus position
Horizontal springs, vertical springs, and springs on slopes
Work done by a spring
Work required to stretch or compress a spring
Applications with the WK Theorem

5. Classify forces acting on a particle as conservative
or nonconservative.
Definition of a conservative force
Definition of a nonconservative force

6. Apply the definitions of average and instantaneous power
Definition of efficiency
Understand how the definition of instantaneous power
becomes the scalar product of force and velocity
