2 The Meaning of Work - What Is Work? Work is done on an object when the object moves in the same direction in which the force is exerted.To do work on an object:The object must move when force is applied.The object must move in the same direction as the force.
3 Calculating Work and Power - What Is Work?Calculating Work and PowerForce is measured in Newtons (N).Formula for Work:Work = Force x DistanceThe SI unit of measure for work is joule (J), in honor of James Prescott Joule, who studied work in the mid-1800s.Formula for Power:Power = Work OR Force x Distance Time TimeThe SI unit of measure for power is Watts (W), in honor of James Watt who greatly improved the steam engine.
4 Calculating Power - What Is Work? A tow truck exerts a force of 11,000 N to pull a car out of a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m in 25 seconds. What is the power of the tow truck?Read and UnderstandWhat information have you been given?Force of the tow truck (F) = 11,000 NDistance (d) = 5.0 mTime (t) = 25 s
5 Calculating Power - What Is Work? A tow truck exerts a force of 11,000 N to pull a car out of a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m in 25 seconds. What is the power of the tow truck?Plan and SolveWhat quantity are you trying to calculate?The Power (P) the tow truck uses to pull the car = __What formula contains the given quantities and the unknown quantity?Power = (Force X Distance)/TimePerform the calculation.Power = (11,000 N X 5.0 m)/25 sPower = (55,000 N•m)/25 s or 55,000 J/25 sPower = 2,200 J/s = 2,200 W
6 Calculating Power Practice Problem - What Is Work? A motor exerts a force of 12,000 N to lift an elevator m in 6.0 seconds. What is the power produced by the motor?16,000 W or 16 kW
7 Asking Questions - What Is Work? Before you read, preview the red headings. In a graphic organizer like the one below, ask a what or how question for each heading. As you read, write answers to your questions.QuestionAnswerWhat is work?Work is done when an object moves in the same direction in which the force is exerted.How can you calculate work?Work = Force X DistanceWhat is power?Power is the rate at which work is done.
8 Input and Output Work - How Machines Do Work The amount of input work done by the gardener equals the amount of output work done by the shovel.Input force – effort you put into the machine.Output force – effort the machine puts into an object.
9 What Is a Machine? - How Machines Do Work A machine makes work easier by changing at least one of three factors:The amount of force you exertThe distance over which you exert your forceThe direction in which you exert your force.Ex. A ramp or faucetEx. Hockey stick, chopsticks, riding a bikeEx. A weight machine with pulleys
10 - How Machines Do WorkEfficiencyEfficiency determines how much work was wasted due to friction.Efficiency = Output Work x 100%Input WorkThe higher the percentage, the more efficient the machine (wastes little work).An ideal machine would have 100% efficiency.
11 Mechanical Advantage - How Machines Do Work Mechanical advantage = Output forceInput forceThe input force and output force for three different ramps are shown in the graph.
12 Mechanical Advantage - How Machines Do Work Reading Graphs: What variable is plotted on the horizontal axis?Input force
13 Mechanical Advantage - How Machines Do Work Interpreting Data: If an 80-N input force is exerted on Ramp 2, what is the output force?400 N
14 Identifying Main Ideas - How Machines Do WorkIdentifying Main IdeasAs you read the section “What Is a Machine?” write the main idea in a graphic organizer like the one below. Then write three supporting details that further explain the main idea.Main IdeaThe mechanical advantage of a machine helps by…DetailDetailDetailchanging the amount of force you exertchanging the distance over which you exert your forcechanging the direction of the force

17 Inclined Plane - Simple Machines An inclined plane is a flat, sloped surface.Ideal mechanical advantage = Length of inclineHeight of incline
18 Wedge - Simple Machines A wedge is a device that is thick at one end and tapers to a thin edge at the other end.Ideal Mechanical Advantage = Length of WedgeWidth of Wedge
19 Screws - Simple Machines A screw can be thought of as an inclined plane wrapped around a cylinder.I.M.A. = Length around the threadsLength of the screw
20 Levers - Simple Machines A lever is a ridged bar that is free to pivot, or rotate, on a fixed point (fulcrum).I.M.A. = Distance from fulcrum to input forceDistance from fulcrum to output force
21 Levers - Simple Machines Levers are classified according to the location of the fulcrum relative to the input and output forces.
22 Wheel and Axle - Simple Machines A wheel and axle is a simple machine made of two circular or cylindrical objects fastened together that rotate about a common axis.I.M.A. = Radius of wheelRadius of axle
23 Pulley - Simple Machines A pulley is a simple machine made of a grooved wheel with a rope or cable wrapped around it.I.M.A. = Number of sections of rope that support the object
24 Simple Machines in the Body Most of the machines in your body are levers that consist of bones and muscles. Your teeth are wedges.
25 Compound Machines - Simple Machines A compound machine is a machine that utilizes two or more simple machines.I.M.A. = The product of the individual I.M.A.s of the simple machines that make it up.
26 Three Classes of Levers - Simple MachinesPreviewing VisualsBefore you read, preview Figure 17. Then write two questions that you have about the diagram in a graphic organizer like the one below. As you read, answer your questions.Three Classes of LeversQ. What are the three classes of levers?A. The three classes of levers are first-class levers, second-class levers, and third-class levers.Q. How do the three classes of levers differ?A. They differ in the position of the fulcrum, input force, and output force.
