Homework Help: Conservation of energy

Posted by Kyle on Monday, June 13, 2011 at 8:11pm.

Can someone explain to me what happens when you take a slap shot in hockey according to conservation of energy? I think that when you wind up you have potential energy, then when you swing the stick towards the puck you have kinetic energy, then when the stick flexes you have elastic potential energy and the when it releases the puck, the puck has kinetic energy. I am wondering if this is right? And if it is can anyone help me write an equation for this to determine the energy?
