Activation Energy

What is Activation energy?

An amount of energy that escalates beyond an energy barrier to obtain variables from a reaction.

It is often unmentioned yet plays a vital role in chemistry and physics.

Example of activation energy.

Dominos are a good way to understand activation energy in physics.

The amount of activation energy at work in the system determines the dominos reaction. If the energy used to activate the the row of dominos is too small the single domino might wobble around, It might not topple over in the aligning path.

A greater force (resultant force = mass × accelerationF = m a.) would provide more activation energy, ultimately driving a chain reaction to access potential energy.

Active Kinetic 1 has created a system that demonstrates a method to efficiently harvest energy from recycled motion energy. Physical activation energy can be recycled and used in a more complex PE system. Activation energy can produce work from motion energy flawlessly.
