# EF-2.4 – Dynamics – Potential and Kinetic Energy

The EF-2.4 Potential and Kinetic Energy experiments kit enables students to understand the difference between potential and kinetic energy and how it can transfer from one form to another.

The kit contains a flywheel, a pendulum and set of springs.

## Description

The kit will allow students to verify Hooke’s law, teach them about energy transfer from potential to kinetic energy using a simple pendulum as well as using a flywheel to demonstrate energy transfer from potential to kinetic and that it can be transferred back again via storage and release.

The Engineering Fundamentals range enables students to gain an understanding of the principles of engineering by the process of learning via experimentation.

The EF-2.4 Potential and Kinetic Energy experiments kit enables students to understand the difference between potential and kinetic energy and how it can transfer from one form to another.

The kit contains a flywheel, a pendulum and set of springs.
