2 Potential and Kinetic Energy Potential Energy = Mass x Gravity x Height (PE = mgh)  g = 9.8 m/s 2 Kinetic Energy = ½ Mass x Velocity 2 (KE = ½mv 2 ) Energy = joules Weight = newtons Height = meters Mass = kilograms Velocity = m/s Pg. 29

3 Speed Speed = distance/time (d/t) Example – If a bicyclist covers 20 kilometers in 1 hour, her speed is 20 km/h. – What if she runs 6 meters in 1 second? In science, the preferred unit of speed is meters per second (m/s) Table Tennis - Bolt - Megatron - Pg. 15

4 Average Speed Average Speed = Total Distance covered Total travel time What is the average speed of a cheetah that sprints 100m in 4 seconds, stops for 10 seconds, and then sprints 200m in 10 seconds?

5 Average Speed If you drove a car for 4 hours at 80 km/hr, then stopped at the loo for 1 hour, what is your average speed? 16

6 Velocity Velocity = distance/time (d/t) in a specific direction For example, if a vehicle travels at 60km/h, do we know the velocity? How about if we say it moves at 60km/h to the north – do we know the velocity?

7 Determine if the following statements are speed or velocity… A cruise ship traveling at 60 knots south. – Velocity A cyclist going 10 mph. – Speed A downhill skier going 40 mph. – Speed A person walking 4 mph on a treadmill. – Speed A jet traveling 600 mph taking-off headed northeast. – Velocity

8 Acceleration a = v f – v i t a = acceleration v f = final velocity v i = initial velocity t = time Pg. 17

9 Acceleration is ANY change in motion. – When you are in a car and you step on the “accelerator” the car accelerates. – When the brakes are applied, the car accelerates. (called deceleration or negative acceleration)

10 Example A car steadily increases speed. Suppose that in 1 second, the velocity increases from 30 km/h to 35 km/h. In the next second, you go from 35 km/h to 40 km/h, and so on. The velocity changes by 5 kilometers per hour each second. change of velocity 5km/h Acceleration = change in time = 1 s = 5km/h. s

11 Example 1 A skater goes from a standstill to a speed of 6.7 m/s in 12 seconds. What is the acceleration of the skater? change of velocity 6.7m/s - 0 Acceleration = time = 12 s a = 0.56 m/s 2

12 Example 2 During a race, a sprinter increases from 5.0 m/s to 7.5 m/s over a period of 1.25s. What is the sprinter’s average acceleration during this period? change of velocity 7.5 m/s – 5.0 m/s Acceleration = time = 1.25 s a = 2.0 m/s 2

13 Gravity and Acceleration Acceleration of a free falling object is 9.8 m/s 2 For every second an object free falls, the velocity will increase by 9.8 m/s 2 Example: An object is dropped for 3 seconds 9.8m/s 2 = v f – 0 3 sec v f = 29.4 m/sec

14 Force Force = Mass x Acceleration F=ma Force is measured in Newtons (N) You push a friend sitting on a swing. She has a mass of 50 kg and accelerates at a rate of 4 m/s 2. Find the force you exerted. F = 50kg x 4 m/s 2 = F = 200 N

16 Work Work = Force x Distance W= F x d Work is measured in Joules (J) Is the person doing work? ___ When pushing a 1000 N car 20 meters? ___ When lifting a rock off the ground? ___ When holding a book in their hands? ___ When pushing hard against a brick wall? ___ When walking up the stairs?

17 Work 2 More, Less, or the Same amount of Work? ___ You use more force to move an object. ___ You lift a 20 N object faster. ___ You raise an object a shorter height. ___ You move a lighter object. ___ You move an object farther.

18 Work Example When a weightlifter lifts a barbell, he does work on the barbell When he is holding the barbell over his head, he does no work

19 Power Which are you more tired… Walking a box up a flight of stairs or running a box up a flight of stairs? You are doing the same amount of work, so why are you more tired? POWER Power is the measure of how fast work is done

20 Power Power = Work/Time P = W/t Power is measured in Watts (Joule per second) One Watt (W) of power is used when one joule of work is done in one second Power is also the rate at which energy is changed from one form to another

21 Power More or Less Power? ___ An engine can lift an object faster. ___ Someone takes more time to push a car. ___ You take the same amount of time to do more work. ___ Same distance; same time; more force.
