WORK, ENERGY & MOMENTUM

WORK & KINETIC ENERGY Work, W: using a force, F, to displace an object a distance, d unit: Joule (1 J = 1 Nm) W = Fd W = (Fcosq)d W = 0

WORK & KINETIC ENERGY Work done by any force: W = Fdcosq
can be positive, negative, or zero d Ex: sled sliding down a hill gravity does positive work friction does negative work normal force does no work

WORK & KINETIC ENERGY Power, P: the time rate at which work is done
P = W/t unit: Watt, W (1 W = 1 J/s) (1 J/s = 1 Nm/s) english unit: horsepower, hp (1.00 hp = 746 W) P = Fv Lift Thrust Drag Weight

WORK & KINETIC ENERGY Kinetic Energy, K: energy of motion
Energy: the ability to do work K = ½mv2 unit: Joule scalar quantity – amount only – direction doesn’t matter can only be zero or positive – never negative

WORK & KINETIC ENERGY

WORK & KINETIC ENERGY Work/Energy Theorem: net work done on an object is equal to the total change in kinetic energy of the object Wnet = Kf – Ki Fnetdcosq = ½mvf2 – ½mvi2

WORK & KINETIC ENERGY Net work determines the change in an object’s motion positive work = increase in kinetic energy (speed up) Ex: throwing a ball negative work = decrease in kinetic energy (slow down) Ex: catching a ball zero work = no change in kinetic energy Ex: weightlifting

POTENTIAL ENERGY & CONSERVATION
Potential Energy, U: energy of position Gravitational PE: energy of position due to gravity force Ug = mgh h: height, measured from origin (reference point) unit: Joule, J Scalar Quantity - can be positive, zero, or negative depending on choice of origin

POTENTIAL ENERGY & CONSERVATION
pendulum: U   K K   U the amount stays the same

POTENTIAL ENERGY & CONSERVATION
Conservation of Mechanical Energy: a system's total mechanical energy (K+U) stays constant if there is no friction Ki + Ui = Kf + Uf However, if there is friction, some K will be turned into other energy forms - heat, sound, etc. Ki + Ui = Kf + Uf + Wlost mechanical energy is not conserved total energy is still conserved

Cons. Of Energy Example: a Mass in Free Fall Ki + Ui = Kf + Uf
½mvi2 + mghi = ½mvf2 + mghf

POTENTIAL ENERGY & CONSERVATION
Example: a Mass on a Horizontal Spring Ki + Ui = Kf + Uf ½mvi2 + ½kxi2 = ½mvf2 + ½kxf2

QUIZ 4.3 A roller coaster car, mass 500 kg, starts from rest at the top of a hill 30 m above ground level. Ignore friction. (a) What is the car’s potential energy at the top of the hill? (b) What is the car’s kinetic energy at the bottom of the hill? (c) How fast will the car be going at the bottom of the hill? (d) What is the car’s kinetic energy at the top of the next hill, 10 m above ground level? 147,000 J 147,000 J 24.2 m/s 98,000 J

PHYSICS MOMENTUM

MOMENTUM & IMPULSE Momentum, p: amount of “umph" an object has (Inertia in Motion) = mv unit p : kg m/s vector quantity - includes direction +2 kgm/s –2 kgm/s

MOMENTUM & IMPULSE Impulse, J: A force that acts over a duration of time. J = Ft unit: kg m/s or N s

MOMENTUM & IMPULSE Impulses cause a change in momentum.
This is known as the Impulse-Momentum Theorem. It is analogous to the Work-Energy Theorem. FΔT = Δp = pf – pi = mvf -mvi unit: kg m/s or N s force of impact, F = -pi/t to decrease force of impact, decrease pi (decrease v before impact) or increase t (catching an egg; stunt falling; air bags)

Practice A 2000 kg car going 30 m/s hits a brick wall and comes to rest. (a) What is the car’s initial momentum? (b) What is the car’s final momentum? (c) What impulse does the wall give to the car? (d) If the impact takes 0.5 seconds, what force is exerted on the car? 60,000 kg m/s 0 kg m/s -60,000 kg m/s -120,000 N

MOMENTUM & IMPULSE Bouncing vs. Sticking in an impact
ex: a 1000 kg car going +10 m/s hits a wall J = pf-pi sticking: pi = +10,000 kgm/s, pf = 0 J = –10,000 kgm/s bouncing: pi = +10,000 kgm/s, pf = – 10,000 kgm/s J = –20,000 kgm/s bouncing off at impact has up to twice the force of sticking

MOMENTUM & IMPULSE Law of Conservation of Momentum: total momentum of a system of objects is constant if no outside forces act mivi = mfvf if mass increases, velocity decreases (and vice versa)

COLLISIONS inelastic collision: objects collide and stick (or collide and deform) momentum is conserved, kinetic energy is not BEFORE = AFTER m1v1 + m2v2 = Mvf (M = m1 + m2) be sure to include + or – for velocity’s direction

COLLISIONS propulsion or explosion: total initial momentum is zero; separated pieces receive equal & opposite momentums, so total final momentum is zero 0 = m1v1f + m2v2f or m1v1f = –m2v2f ex: rocket propulsion, gun recoil

COLLISIONS Ex: A 4 kg rifle fires a kg bullet, giving the bullet a final velocity of 300 m/s east. What is the recoil velocity of the rifle?

COLLISIONS elastic collision: objects collide and bounce off with no loss of energy both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved BEFORE = AFTER m1v1o + m2v2o = m1v1f + m2v2f ½m1v1o2 + ½m2v2o2 = ½m1v1f2 + ½m2v2f2

Useful Equations p = mv J = pf – pi = Ft m1v3 = –m2v4
m1v1 + m2v2 = Mv3 m1v1 + m2v2 = m1v3 + m2v4
