**Total Mechanical Energy (ET):**

Energy can be transferred or transformed, never lost Law of Conservation of Energy *If friction negligible If friction is not negligible then….

Ex#1 A 56kg diver runs & dives from the edge of a cliff into the water which is located 4m below. If she is moving at 8m/s the instant she leaves the cliff, determine the speed at which she enters the water. Before Jump At Water Level Eg Ek Eg Ek m = 56 kg m = 56 kg m = 56 kg m = 56 kg g = 9.8 N/kg v = 8 m/s g = 9.8 N/kg v = ? h = 4 m h = 0 m =

Ex#2 A child throws a 0.2kg rock at a tree. When the rock leaves the child’s hand, it is moving at 20m/s & is located 1.5m above the ground. How high above the ground does the rock strike the tree if it is moving at 10m/s at that instant? Throw Tree Eg Ek Eg Ek m = 0.2 kg m = 0.2 kg m = 0.2 kg m = 0.2 kg g = 9.8 N/kg v = 20 m/s g = 9.8 N/kg v = 10 m/s h = 1.5 m h = ? =

Ex#3 A 2 kg ball rolls along a frictionless surface. It passes point C at a speed of 20m/s. What was the speed of the ball at point A? A C 25 m 20 m Point A Point C Eg Ek Eg Ek m = 2 kg m = 2 kg m = 2 kg m = 2 kg g = 9.8 N/kg v = ? m/s g = 9.8 N/kg v = 20m/s h = 20 m h = 25 m =

**So work applied to move mass 5m**

Ex#4 Law of Conservation of Energy A force of 16N is applied to a 400g mass, starting at rest, over a distance of 5m. How long does it take the mass to move 5m? Before After 5m Eg Ek Eg Ek Eg = 0 m = 0.4 kg Eg = 0 m = 0.4 kg v = 0 m/s v = ? Recall, work = energy So work applied to move mass 5m

**Work required to set block in motion**

**Ex#5 You are playing with a toy slider track.**

The top of the “hump” is 1.2m above the level of the slider at the beginning of the track. The average force of friction between the 0.15kg slider & the track is 0.11N. The distance from point A to point B along the track is 2.3m. You propel the slider by applying a constant force of 6.6N hoping to get it over the “hump”. How far must you push the slider to ensure that it makes it over the “hump”?

**Recall, energy= work Recall, work = energy**

Top: Bottom: Recall, energy= work BUT….friction… Recall, work = energy
