# Total Energy Change Calculation in Stamping Machine

What is the total energy change of the hammerhead in a stamping machine?

The change in total energy of the hammerhead is **31004.825 J**.

To calculate the change in total energy of the hammerhead in a stamping machine, we need to apply the Principle of Energy Conservation and Work-Energy Theorem. The total energy change is determined by the difference between the final kinetic energy and the initial potential energy of the hammerhead.

## Calculation:

Change in Total Energy of the Hammerhead, ΔE_{ham} = K_{B} - U_{g,A}

ΔE_{ham} = (1/2) * m_{ham} * v_{B}^{2} - m_{ham} * g * h_{A}

ΔE_{ham} = m_{ham} * ((1/2) * v_{B}^{2} - g * h_{A})

ΔE_{ham} = (25 kg) * [(1/2) * (50 m/s)^{2} - (9.807 m/s^{2}) * (1 m)]

ΔE_{ham} = 31004.825 J

Therefore, the total energy change of the hammerhead in the stamping machine is 31004.825 Joules.
