AP C UNIT 3 WORK & ENERGY
SCALAR PRODUCT or DOT PRODUCT Dot Product is defined as the magnitude of 1 st ( ) times scalar component of 2nd vector ( ) along direction of 1st. Essentially, the dot product gives you information about how much of each vector lies along the direction of the other. its a scalar result where Ф is the angle between a and b. THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS ADDING 2 VECTORS YIELDING A RESULTANT The reason the dot product is used in physics is because the operation between certain vector quantities produce meaningful physical answers such as WORK.
Since the dot product involves the cosine then IF Ф = 90 o THEN PRODUCT = 0 IF Ф = 0 o THEN PRODUCT = MAXIMUM This is consistent in that when vectors are perpendicular neither lies along the other, therefore an answer of zero results. Directional properties of the Dot Product include: and Unit vector form of dot product: if you distribute, this would reduce to… *Note that there is no direction associated with result but answer can be negative depending on angle.
Calculate the dot product of the following vectors and find the angle between them: A = -3i + 5j B = 6i +14j
More Calculus - Derivative of a Product: When taking the derivative of two functions multiplied together, the derivative is: The 1 st function times the derivative of the 2 nd plus the derivative of the 1 st times the 2 nd function. *Could have foiled and then performed power rule as well Example…find dy/dx
Chain Rule: The chain rule is used when there is a function within a function. Think of the functions f and g as ``layers'' of a problem. Function f is the ``outer layer'' and function g is the ``inner layer.'' Thus, the chain rule tells us to first differentiate the outer layer, leaving the inner layer unchanged (the term f'(g(x))), then differentiate the inner layer (the term g'(x) ). f (x) = f ( g(x) )f (x) = f( g(x) ) (g'(x)) The inner layer, g(x) is (x 3 + 5) The outer layer f(x) is (x) 2 Derivative of outer times derivative of inner with respect to x
Example: Find the derivative of f function of a function
Work Done by a Constant Force Work is defined as an external force (F) moving through a displacement (Δr). How much force lies along the movement of an object.
Positive & Negative Work In all 4 cases, the force has the same magnitude and the displacement of the object is to the right with the same magnitude. Rank the situations from most positive to most negative.
A crate of mass, M, is dragged along a level rough surface a distance, x, by a force, F as shown. The coefficient of friction is u k. Find the net work done on the crate in terms of given variables and constants.
Work done by a varying force If F(x) = 4x 2 then find the work done on a particle that moves from x = 1m to x = 5m.
Example: Suppose a mass moves with a trajectory defined by the position vector Find the work done by the force, over the interval from t = 1 to t = 2.
A force, F(x) = 2-4x, acts on a 7.0kg mass. What is the final speed of the mass as it is moved from x=5m to x=2? Assume mass starts from rest at t=0.
Hookes Law Work done by Spring Negative means that the force opposes the displacement from equilibrium FsFs If block is pulled to right, the force by spring is NOT constant via Hookes Law. Therefore, the work done by spring must use avg force or be integrated as:
A plot of spring force vs displacement reveals a slope equal to spring constant, k
Two springs are attached to a block in series and parallel as shown above. Determine the effective spring constant for each situation in terms of k 1 and k 2. k1k1 k2k2 k1k1 k2k2 k2k2 k1k1 What would spring constant be if a mass was attached to a massless spring that stretched a distance x?
What if same mass was attached to 2 springs as shown? How would stretch, x, differ for each spring?
Power Rate at which work is done or energy is transferred
A 4kg particle moves along the x-axis. Its position varies with time according to x = t + 2t 3, where x is in meters and t is in seconds. Find the the power being delivered to the particle at any time t OR
If a projectile thrown directly upward reaches a maximum height h and spends a total time in the air T, the average power of the gravitational force during the trajectory is: a) 2mgh / T b) -2mgh / T c) 0 d) mgh / T e) -mgh / T
Potential Energy As height above Earth increases…
Conservative & Non-conservative Forces The work a conservative force does on an object in moving it from A to B is path independent - it depends only on the end points of the motion. Force of gravity and the spring force are conservative forces. Conservative forces store energy…available for kinetic energy The work done by non-conservative (or dissipative) forces in going from A to B depends on the path taken. Friction is non-conservative. Non- conservative forces dont store energy.
CONSERVATION OF NRG Total energy in a closed system remains unchanged Work done by NC forces or friction is positive in the above formula. No need to put in minus sign. Work done by friction occurs on left side as minus but becomes + when taken to other side. Energy worksheet
Potential Energy Function Diagrams
U(x) vs Restoring Force Relationship As mass oscillates the net force is composed of gravity and the spring force. The net restoring force is shown in the graph. Net force at equilibrium = 0. When slope of U(x) is negative, force is positive and vice versa.
Potential Energy and Conservative Restoring Forces (gravity, spring) The instantaneous restoring force is equal to the negative derivative of the potential energy function.
In the case of a mass oscillating on a horizontal frictionless surface we can verify this relationship:
A certain spring is found not to obey Hookes Law; it exerts a restoring force F(x) = -60x-18x 2. Example1 a) Calculate the potential energy function U(x) for this spring. Let U = 0 when x = 0. b) An object with mass 0.90kg on a frictionless, horizontal surface is attached to this spring, pulled a distance 1.00m to the right to stretch the spring and released. What is the speed of the object when it is 0.50m to the right of x=0?
x 3 and x 5 are points of stable equilibrium or energy wells. If the system is slightly displaced to either side the forces on either side will return the object back to these positions. Potential energy diagram states of equilibrium: x 4 is a position of unstable equilibrium. If the object is displaced ever so slightly from this position, the internal forces on either side will act to encourage further displacement instead of returning it back to x 4. x 6 is a position of neutral equilibrium. Since there is no net force acting on the object (slope of U(x) = 0) it must either possess only potential energy and be at rest or, it also possesses kinetic energy and must be moving at a constant velocity. Points of equilibrium are where the force is zero (slope = zero).
A 5-kg mass moving along the x- axis passes through the origin with an initial velocity of 3m/s. Its potential energy as a function of its position is given in the graph. a) How much total energy does the mass have as it passes through the origin? b) Between 2.5m and 5m, is the mass gaining speed or losing speed? c) How fast is it moving at 7.5m? d) How much potential energy would have to be present for the mass to stop moving? Example2
Turning points Positions where potential energy equals the total mechanical energy, U max = E, are called turning points
A particle moves along the x-axis according to the following potential energy function: Find the positions of equilibrium for the particle.
