    - The different factors related by work-energy principle are mass, force, velocity and displacement. Work done is equal to change in kinetic energy.

    - Therefore, work-energy principle relates scaler quantities such as work and energy.

    Algebraic sum of work done by different forces = Difference between kinetic energy of the systems at two different positions.

    W1→2 = (Kinetic energy)2 - (Kinetic energy)1

    Scaler quantity: It is a physical quantity which has only magnitude and no direction.

    Vector quantity: It is a physical quantity which has both magnitude and direction.
