Considering work-energy principle we know net-work done on a system is equal to the change in kinetic energy of the system. The net-force causes net-work. So can we also state net-force causes acceleration in the direction of the net force and so also causes a change in kinetic energy of the system?
(Asking this because I read a derivation of Bernoulli's equation, which can be taken as an equation of conservation of mechanical energy, from Newton's second law. Newton's second law used for the derivation of momentum equation made sense but second law being just about force and change in momentum didn't quite intuitively get how it was used to relate to conservation of energy. I got the math behind it which is straightforward just didn't get a sense for it.)
