ENERGY Chapter 8 Definitions - 1 Definitions - 2 Definitions 3 Work and Energy Conservation of Energy Wed like to find out how energy transforms from one form to another (e.g., from KE to PE). One of the most important findings in physics is the law of conservation of energy: Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It can be transformed from one form to another, but the total amount of energy does not change.
