OK here’s a conceptual physics question that I just can’t seem to wrap my head around, and am required to answer for part of my physics lab:
If I pull a block of wood using 1 joule of energy across a table for 1 m, where does this joule of energy go after the block reaches the end of the meter stick, and
b) where will the joule of energy be 15min later.
I know that the kinetic energy of me pulling this block of wood with that amount of energy is transformed into some other form of energy (potential?), but what kind, and what difference does the time make?
