Which has more energy? Explain. Work

Work ( W ) - a force acting upon an object to cause a change in position and a change of energy. Units Nm = Joules (J) W = Fd = ∆ E t

If a box lifted 5m gains 100J of energy, 1) What force was used? F d = ∆E T 2) What was the work done on the box? w = ∆E T

If a box lifted 5m gains 100J of energy, 1) What force was used? F 5m = 100J 2) What was the work done on the box? w = 100J

If a box lifted 5m gains 100J of energy, 1) What force was used? F = 20N 2) What was the work done on the box? w = 100J

Are the following scenarios examples of work? Explain why or why not.

Can vertical forces produce horizontal work? Explain. NO! A vertical force can never cause a horizontal displacement; a vertical force does not do work on a horizontally displaced object!! Independence of perpendicular vectors.

Positive WorkNegative Work Force is in the same direction as motion. Increases energy of object. Force opposes motion. Decreases energy of object.

When the force causing a change in position is acting at an angle compared to the direction of movement, you must: Resolve the force into components. Use the force that is acting in the same direction as the displacement. Work at Angles

Force vs. Distance Graphs Find work done:

Power

Power ( P ) - The rate at which work is performed. (scalar) Units – J / s = Watt

Work vs time Work time

Mechanical Energy - is the energy which is possessed by an object due to its motion or its stored energy of position. (scalar) Gravitational Potential, Kinetic, & Elastic

Kinetic Energy ( KE ) – the energy an object possesses due to its motion. Which picture has more Kinetic Energy? KE = ½ mv 2 Units – Joules (J)

Gravitational Potential Energy ( PE g ) – the energy possessed by an object due to its position. ΔPE g = mgΔh Units – Joules (J) Which mass has more Potential Energy?

Sketch the following relationships.

Other Forms of Energy

Internal Energy ( Q ) – total energy possessed by the particles that make up an object.

Transformation – a conversion from one form of energy to another. Transferal – the passing of energy between masses. Energy Transformation & Transferal

Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be transformed or transferred from one form to another within a closed system. The total mechanical energy within a closed system will always remain the same. Energy Conservation Principle in Ideal Mechanical Systems

Increase or decrease the total mechanical energy of a system. F app F fric F air F tens F norm External Forces

When work is done upon an object by an external force, the total mechanical energy (KE + PE) of that object is changed. W = ΔE T = E f - E i Work Energy Theorum * Already on page 128

If the work is "positive work", then the object will gain energy. If the work is "negative work", then the object will lose energy. The gain or loss in energy can be in the form of potential energy, kinetic energy, or both. Work Energy Theorum

Pendulums While at Pisa, Galileo was also inspired to study pendulums. Galileo was sitting in the pews of a cathedral, gazing upwards, when he noticed that one of the great lamps was swinging back and forth. He noticed that the swing of the lamp was incredibly regular. This motivated him to study pendulums.

Common Uses for Pendulums

Why use the word “Simple”? Disregard the effects of air resistance. Assume that the mass of the bob is concentrated at one point. Assume that mass of string is negligible.

States of a Spring

Spring Force Spring Force (F spring ) – a force that always pushes or pulls the mass back toward its original equilibrium position. Considered a restoring force Units – Newtons (N)

In 1678, Robert Hooke discovered the following relationship: Spring constant ( k ) - resistivity of spring Units – N/m F spring = k x Hooke’s Law

x FsFs

Elastic Potential Energy (PE s ) – the energy stored in a spring when it is compressed or stretched. Units – Joules (J) Elastic Potential Energy

A spring is set up in a lab and is stretched various amounts. The Potential Energy in the spring is then measured. Below is the data obtained from the experiment. Elastic Potential Energy

What is the relationship between the potential energy stored in a spring and the amount it is stretched? Quadratic PE spring = ½ kx 2
