Internal energy, Civil Engineering

For a system  

Q =W+ ΔE

where ΔE is the change in E, the stored energy in the  ΔE system.

E has various forms  

1. Kinetic Energy

2. Potential Energy

Work done on system = mg(z2 - z1 )

3. Other forms of energy are due to random movement of molecules, chemical energy etc. and are combined in U, the internal energy.
