### 5. The Electric Potential and Conservation of Energy

Fundamentals of Physics, II (PHYS 201) The law of conservation of energy is reviewed using examples drawn from Newtonian mechanics. The work-energy theorem is derived from first principles and used to initiate a discussion of the vector calculus underlying the law of conservation of energy. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
