WORK, POWER & Simple Machines

WORK, POWER & Simple Machines
What is the hardest, most difficult job, task, or chore you have ever done? Who is the most powerful person in the world?

3) Dictionary  Mental or physical exertion.
Scientific  the product of force applied to an object and the distance the object moves.

4) 3 examples of work Lifting, pushing, pulling

5) 3 requirements for work are:
A force must be applied. Object must move. Motion must be in the direction of the force.

Work or Not? According to the scientific definition, what is work and what is not? a teacher lecturing to her class a mouse pushing a piece of cheese with its nose across the floor

What’s work? A scientist delivers a speech to an audience of his peers. A body builder lifts 350 pounds above his head. A mother carries her baby from room to room. A father pushes a baby in a carriage. A woman carries a 20 kg grocery bag to her car?

What’s work? A scientist delivers a speech to an audience of his peers. No A body builder lifts 350 pounds above his head. Yes A mother carries her baby from room to room. No A father pushes a baby in a carriage. Yes A woman carries a 20 km grocery bag to her car? No

Formula for work Work = Force x Distance The unit of force is newtons
The unit of distance is meters The unit of work is newton-meters One newton-meter is equal to one joule So, the unit of work is a joule

W=FD Work = Force x Distance
Calculate: If a man pushes a concrete block 10 meters with a force of 20 N, how much work has he done?

W=FD Work = Force x Distance
Calculate: If a man pushes a concrete block 10 meters with a force of 20 N, how much work has he done? 200 joules (W = 20N x 10m)

NOT WORK!

8) How is work calculated?
Work = force x distance W = Fd (draw a triangle) The unit is a newton x meter = 1 Nm A Nm is called a joule (J)

9) James Prescott Joule Foot-pound (ft-lb) Torque wrench

You your friend Mr. Blue WE ALL DO THE SAME AMOUNT OF WORK! Every body moves one metric ton of dirt 25 meters

12) NO! work = F x d time does not factor into scientific work.
13) POWER

15) If you said MR. Blue you are right.
16) Power = work / time P = W / t joule divided by a second WATT (W) (J/s or Nm/s)

Power Power is the rate at which work is done. Power = Work*/Time
*(force x distance) The unit of power is the watt.

18) James Watt ( ) 19) Improved the steam engine & started the industrial revolution

Check for Understanding
1.Two physics students, Ben and Bonnie, are in the weightlifting room. Bonnie lifts the 50 kg barbell over her head (approximately .60 m) 10 times in one minute; Ben lifts the 50 kg barbell the same distance over his head 10 times in 10 seconds. Which student does the most work? Which student delivers the most power? Explain your answers.

Ben and Bonnie do the same amount of work; they apply the same force to lift the same barbell the same distance above their heads. Yet, Ben is the most powerful since he does the same work in less time. Power and time are inversely proportional.

Force=Mass x Acceleration
2. How much power will it take to move a 10 kg mass at an acceleration of 2 m/s/s a distance of 10 meters in 5 seconds? This problem requires you to use the formulas for force, work, and power all in the correct order. Force=Mass x Acceleration Work=Force x Distance Power = Work/Time

Force=Mass x Acceleration
2. How much power will it take to move a 10 kg mass at an acceleration of 2 m/s/s a distance of 10 meters in 5 seconds? This problem requires you to use the formulas for force, work, and power all in the correct order. Force=Mass x Acceleration Force=10 x 2 Force=20 N Work=Force x Distance Work = 20 x 10 Work = 200 Joules Power = Work/Time Power = 200/5 Power = 40 watts

19) Horsepower (hp) 20) 1 hp = 746 W

21) Lawnmower engine 3-100,000 hp

23) What is a machine? Any device that makes work easier.

24) Machines multiply forces, multiply distance ( increase speed), or change the direction of the force 25)

26) Work input (Wi) is the work you do on the machine
26) Work input (Wi) is the work you do on the machine. Wi = Feffort x deffort 27) Work output (Wo) is the work the machine does on the object or load Wo = Fresistance x dresistance

28) Efficiency (EFF) & Mechanical Advantage (MA)
Efficiency is the ratio of use-ful work output to neces-sary work input. EFF = Wo/Wi x 100 = %

Transformer (98%), car (35%), & human brain (?)

30) complete the problem 31) It depends, friction/sound
32) Mechanical Advantage (AMA) is the number of times forces are multiplied. Ideal (theoretical) Mechanical Advantage (IMA) - is the number of times distances are multiplied

AMA = F resistance / F effort AMA = 10 000 N / 10 N =?
IMA = d effort / d resistance IMA = 100 m / 10 m =?

AMA or IMA is unitless Note you may use a “x” like 100x, 2x, .5x etc
An ideal machine is friction-less, weightless, massless, and impossible to build.

A perpetual motion machine is an example

What makes a machine simple?

34) Stick, rock, club, pre-stone age, Africa
35) A simple machine does work with one movement. 36) 1) lever ) inclined plane 3) wheel & axle 4) wedge 5) pulley 6) screw

Levers

Levers are rigid objects that move at a fulcrum (pivot point) to create MA.

Classes of Levers - First, Second and Third
resistance                                                                 Fulcrum is always between the effort & resistance

The resistance is always between the fulcrum and the effort

The effort is always between the fulcrum & resistance

It is as easy as 1 2 3 F R E

wheels

Wheel & axle is a rotating lever.

pulleys

Pulleys are ropes, belts, chains, etc. wrapped around a wheel & axle

Inclined Plane (IP) a slanted surface used to lift an object.

Wedge are moving IP’s.

Screws are IP’s wrapped around a cylinder.

Work and Simple Machines

What is work? In science, the word work has a different meaning than you may be familiar with. The scientific definition of work is: using a force to move an object a distance (when both the force and the motion of the object are in the same direction.)
