## The Physical Nature of Work and Kinetic Energy

**Authors:** Guido F. Nelissen

The principle of conservation of ‘energy’ is the ultimate building stone of physics. The problem is that we don’t have a tight description of what ‘energy’ really is and how and where it is physically stored.
On the basis of the conclusion of my paper Part 2: “The true physical nature of force” in which I have demonstrated that ‘force’ is a mathematical expression of the rate at which congruent translational motion is transferred, I will in this paper give a real physical definition of the true nature of ‘work’, which is in the present textbooks mathematically defined as the product of a force times its displacement and of the true physical nature of ‘kinetic energy’ of a moving body, which is in the present textbooks mathematically defined as the product of its mass times half the square of its velocity.
