Work and Machines Calculating Power 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? What 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 = Work/Time = (Force X Distance)/Time Perform the calculation. Power = (11,000 N X 5.0 m)/25 s Power = (55,000 Nm)/25 s or 55,000 J/25 s Power = 2,200 J/s = 2,200 W 1 Joule per second = 1 Watt 1000 Watts = 1 kilowatt or 1000 W = 1 kW - What Is Work?
Work and Machines Calculating Power 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? Look Back and Check Does your answer make sense? The answer tells you that the tow truck used 2,200 W to pull the car. This value is about the same power that three horses would exert, so the answer is reasonable. - What Is Work?
Work and Machines Calculating Power Practice Problem A motor exerts a force of 12,000 N to lift an elevator 8.0 m in 6.0 seconds. What is the power produced by the motor? (12,000 N x 8.0 m)/6.0 s = 16,000 W or 16 kW - What Is Work?
Work and Machines Calculating kilowatt-hours & Cost Suppose you use your DVD player & TV with a combined power rating of 250 W for 40 hours over the course of a month. How many kilowatt-hours did you add to the electric bill? Remember to convert units. How much money did you add to the electric bill if the electric company charges 7 cents ($0.07) per kWh? 250 W = 0.250 kW Amount of kWh = 0.250 kW x 40 hours = 10 kWh Cost = 10 kWh x $0.07 per kWh = $0.70 or 70 cents - What Is Work?
Work and Machines Experiment Problem from the Forces Test Suzie and Markie are attempting to discover how to make moving large objects easier. They both believe that lighter objects are easier to move across a surface. They design an experiment to test out their prediction using a small wooden cart, a force sensor, and weights. Hypothesis- Lighter objects are easier to move across a surface. Ind. Variable- weight or mass Dep. Variable- frictional force or force required to move the object or distance moved in a certain amount of time Constants- same surface, same incline, same distance moved, same force sensor, same amount of pull/time for each measurement
Work and Machines Experiment Problems Determine the hypothesis, independent variable, dependent variable, and 2 or more constants for the experiment: A student believes that bacteria grows quicker in warmer environments and slower in a cooler environment. This student is using petri dishes (little plastic dishes) and incubators of varying temperatures to cultivate the bacteria. Hypothesis- Bacteria will grow quicker the warmer it gets (as temperature goes up). Ind. Variable- Temperature Dep. Variable- Amount of bacteria grown Constants- Same size petri dishes, same amount of bacteria in each dish to start with, same amount of light, etc.
Work and Machines Plant Experiment Determine the independent variable(s), dependent variable, 2 or more constants, and the control group: Flowers in a greenhouse are fertilized with a mixture of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). A student has used different amounts of these parts of fertilizer to determine which component is most responsible for good growth. Examine the table. Ind. Variables- Amount of different fertilizers (N, P, & K) Dep. Variable- Amount of Plant growth Constants- Amount of soil, amount of water added to the plant, amount of sunlight Control Group- Plant C (b/c it doesn’t have any fertilizer, so the student is seeing how much the plant would grow normally- without fertilizer) Plant APlant BPlant CPlant D N = 90N = 5N = 0N = 5 P = 5P = 90P = 0P = 5 K = 5 K = 0K = 90
Work and Machines Electricity Usage and Power The amount of money you add to the electric bill can be determined by how long you use certain appliances and the power rating of those appliances. Power is the rate at which the work gets done, so power is the amount of work done in a certain amount of time. Power = Work/Time or (Force x Distance)/Time And Power = strength of the electric current x voltage Power is measured in Watts (W) or kilowatts (kW). Examples- Light Bulbs range from 40 W to 100 W. 1 Watt = 1 (N x m)/s or 1 J/s 1000 Watts = 1 kilowatt
Work and Machines Electricity Usage and Power Electric companies charge about 7 cents ($0.07) per kilowatt-hour (kWh). So, if use an appliance with a 1000 W (or 1 kW) power rating for 100 hours over the course of a month, then you used 1 kW x 100 hours = 100 kWh. To determine the money added to the bill, multiply the kWh by the money per kWh… 100 kWh x 0.07 dollars/kWh = $7.00

Work and Machines - What Is Work? The Meaning of Work Work is done on an object when the object moves in the same direction in which the force is exerted. Work = Force x distance
Work and Machines Calculating 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. What is the work done by the tow truck? Work = Force x distance (in the direction of the force) Work = 11,000 N x 5.0 m = 55,000 N x m (Newton meters) 1 N x m = 1 Joule = 1 J So, Work of the tow truck = 55,000 Joules or 55,000 J - What Is Work?
