Sweetspot
• The sweetspot is the area of a racquet which yields the most return and produces the best feel.
• There are three known sweetspots.
Energy
• Energy is the conserved property of objects that can neither be created nor destroyed.
• It is a scalar quantity and it is represented by the symbol E.
• Examples of some forms of energy are kinetic, potential, heat, sound, electrical energy, etc.
Kinetic Energy
• Kinetic energy is the energy a particle associated with its motion.
• It is a scalar quantity; it depends only on the particle’s mass and speed, not its direction of motion.
Potential Energy
• Potential energy also known as gravitational potential energy.
• It is defined as the energy of a particle associated with the position of a system rather than its motion.

U = mgh

Conservation Of Energy
• The basic principle of conservation of energy is that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be transformed from one state to another.

Etotal = Einitial = Efinal

Einitial = Ki + Ui

Efinal = Kf + Uf + Energy loss
