Work done When any object is moved around work will need to be done on it to get it to move (obviously). We can work out the amount of work done in moving an object using the formula: Work done = Force x Distance Moved in J in N in m W DF
Kinetic energy Any object that moves will have kinetic energy. The amount of kinetic energy an object has can be found using the formula: Kinetic energy = ½ x mass x velocity squared in J in kg in m/s KE = ½ mv 2
Some example questions… A 70kg boy is running at about 10m/s. What is his kinetic energy? Using KE=½mv 2 =0.5x70x10x10=3500J A braking force of 1000N is applied by a driver to stop his car. The car covered 50m before it stopped. How much work did the brakes do? Work Done = force x distance = 1000x50 = 50000J What is the kinetic energy of a 100g tennis ball being thrown at a speed of 5m/s? Using KE=½mv 2 =0.5x0.1x5x5=1.25J A crane is lifting a 50kg load up into the air with a constant speed. If the load is raised by 200m how much work has the crane done? Work Done = force x distance = 50x9.81x200 = 98100J KE = ½ mv 2
Potential energy An object has potential energy because of it’s position or condition. That means it is high or wound up The formula is for high objects: Potential energy = mass x g x height PE = mgh
Work Done = Energy Converted Work Done raising an object = PE Stored
PE = mgh KE = ½ mv 2 At the top of the oscillation the pendulum bob stops. All it’s energy is PE At the bottom the bob has no PE only KE PE at top=KE at bottom h
mgh = ½ mv 2 PE at top=KE at bottom H=10cm mgh = ½ mv 2 gh = ½ v 2 v 2 = 2gh v 2 = 2(9.8)0.1 v = 1.4m/s
Power The rate at which work is done POWER = Work Done time taken Example A jet takes 2mins to climb to 4000m. If the jet has mass 200tonnes find the work done and the power? Work Done = Force x Distance = 200x1000x9.81x4000 =7 x 10 9 Joules Power = Work Done / Time = 7 x 10 9 Joules / 120 = 5.83 x 10 7 Watts

Read the volume V of the air column from the scale. Take the corresponding pressure reading from the gauge and record the pressure P of the trapped air. Reduce the pressure by opening the valve slightly – this causes an increase the volume of the trapped air column. Again let the temperature of the enclosed air reach equilibrium. Record the corresponding values for the volume V and pressure P. Repeat steps two to five to get at least six pairs of readings.

Geostationary or Clarke Orbit Same period and angular velocity as the planet surface so stays above same spot. What is it’s height above the earth?
Simple Harmonic Motion Is a vibration where the acceleration is proportional to the displacement a -s Further from centre =more acceleration
Hooke’s Law as SHM Force Extension F -s m.a -s If mass is constant a -s So motion under Hookes law is SHM
