Does total net Work done = the total change in Mechanical Energy?

W=ΔKE=1/2(mv^2f)-1/2(mv^2i)

Mechanical energy never changes. It is a constant for the system (assuming no outside influence). If KE = PE, then ∆KE = ∆PE. They change by the same amount, but we are interested in the effect the force has on the object. Therefore, we measure it in terms of KE.

Yes it does all the time.
Only in isolated systems it doesn't.

>>7646402
You're question is to vague, might be true in some situations but generally no. Work has a definition you know.
>>
>>7646402
Not in relativity.
>>
>>7646402
No, work done by all nonconservative forces present in the system is equal to the change in mechanical energy

>Assuming no outside influence.
This implies an isolated system.

Ok sir
