I was doing a project related to the energies and I wanted to know about the mechanical energy, what are the methods by which they are produced?

    We can define Mechanical Energy as the sum of Potential and Kinetic Energy. We can understand the concept of Mechanical energy as it is the energy which is related or associated with the motion of an object.
    There are some examples to understand the concept of Mechanical Energy. Which are
    Movement of water such as river.
    Moving turbine such as found in power plants.
    Moving objects such as vehicles
    Rotation and the revolution of earth
    Some other examples of Mechanical are Wind turbines and refrigerators
    Moving objects such as river or ocean.
    Free falling objects are also examples of Mechanical Energy.
    A flying aircraft or bird is also an example of mechanical energy.

    mechanical energy describes the potential energy and kinetic energy present in the components of a mechanical system.

    Mechanical energy can be either kinetic energy (energy of motion) or potential energy (stored energy of position). Objects have mechanical energy if they are in motion and/or if they are at some position relative to a zero potential energy position (for example, a brick held at a vertical position above the ground or zero height position). A moving car possesses mechanical energy due to its motion (kinetic energy). A moving baseball possesses mechanical energy due to both its high speed (kinetic energy) and its vertical position above the ground (gravitational potential energy). A World Civilization book at rest on the top shelf of a locker possesses mechanical energy due to its vertical position above the ground (gravitational potential energy). A barbell lifted high above a weightlifter's head possesses mechanical energy due to its vertical position above the ground (gravitational potential energy). A drawn bow possesses mechanical energy due to its stretched position (elastic potential energy).
