Today Definition of Work What is work? How does it relate to force?
All objects or systems have an energy associated with it E = E motion +E grav + E elastic + E thermal + E chem + E nuc + E nuc … Energy can be transferred from the environment to an object or system in two ways 1.WORK – mechanical transfer of energy (apply force over a distance) 2.HEAT – nonmechanical transfer of energy (due to temperature difference)
Work – When a force acts on an object over a distance, it is said that work was done upon the object. Work tells us how much a force transfers energy to a system. dot product Component of force parallel to displacement Angle between F and d Work a bridge between force (a vector) and energy (a scalar)
Dot Product The product of the magnitudes of 2 vectors and the angle between them. The result is a SCALAR. A B Result is a scalar that measures how much of one vector lies along the direction of the other. Bcos
Work dot product Component of force parallel to the displacement SI Unit of work (and Energy) is Joule: J = (N)(m) Work is a SCALAR

Example: Work done on a crate. A 50 kg crate is pulled 40 m along a horizontal floor by a constant force exerted by a, F P = 100 N, which acts at a 37 0 angle. The floor is rough and exerts a friction force f K = 50 N. Determine the work done by each force on the crate and the net work done on the crate. x = 40m FGFG FNFN F P =100 fKfK 37 0
Example: Work done on a crate. x = 40m FGFG FNFN FPFP fKfK 37 0
Force and direction of motion both matter in defining work! There is no work done by a force if it causes no displacement. Forces can do positive, negative, or zero work. When an box is pushed on a flat floor, for example… The normal force and gravity do no work, since they are perpendicular to the direction of motion. The person pushing the box does positive work, since she is pushing in the direction of motion. Friction does negative work, since it points opposite the direction of motion.

Energy – has the ability to do work
Work Energy Theorem Work on a system by a force over a distance transfers energy to the system! W= E If an applied force does positive work on a system, it increases the energy. If an applied force does negative work, it decreases the energy. W= E = K + U g + U S + E thermal + E chem + E nuc +… The two forms of mechanical energy are called kinetic energy and potential energy.
Kinetic Energy, K The NET work done on an object changes its kinetic energy. for F net K will change if there is a F net (acceleration) Work-Energy Theorem
Kinetic Energy energy of translational motion SI unit of kinetic energy: Joule K is a scalar K of a group of objects is the algebraic sum of the Ks of the individual objects If positive net work done on an object, its K increases If negative net work done on object, its K decreases

Power Power is the rate of which work is done. P = W/ t =(Fdcos )/t= Fvcos = E/t W: work in Joules t: elapsed time in seconds When we run upstairs, t is small so P is big. When we walk upstairs, t is large so P is small.
Unit of Power SI unit for power is the Watt 1 W = 1 J/s W: work in Joules t: elapsed time in seconds Named after the Scottish engineer James Watt ( ) who perfected the steam engine.
How We Buy Energy… The kilowatt-hour is a commonly used unit by the electrical power company. Power companies charge you by the kilowatt-hour (kWh), but this not power, it is really energy consumed. 1 kW = 1000 W 1 h = 3600 s 1 kWh = 1000J/s 3600s = 3.6 x 10 6 J

Work Done by a Varying Force
Work Done by a Constant Force W = AREA under F-x curve The force shown is a constant force. W = F x can be used to calculate the work done by this force when it moves an object from x i to x f. The area under the curve from x i to x f can also be used to calculate the work
Work Done by a Varying Force The force shown is a variable force. W = F x CANNOT be used to calculate the work done by this force. The area under the curve from x i to x f can STILL be used to calculate the work Work = AREA under F-x curve

More Work Done by a Varying Force SPRINGS
Springs When a spring is stretched or compressed from its equilibrium position, it does negative work since the spring pulls in the direction opposite the direction of motion. Force of a spring varies with x F sp F pull 0x xx
Springs When a spring is stretched or compressed from its equilibrium position, it does negative work since the spring pulls in the direction opposite the direction of motion. Hooke’s Law: The force exerted by a spring is directly proportional to the distance the spring is stretched from the equilibrium position. F s = k x F : Force (N) k : spring constant (N/m) Describes the stiffness of the spring x : displacement from equilibrium (m) F sp F pull
Springs When a spring is stretched or compressed from its equilibrium position, it does negative work since the spring pulls in the direction opposite the direction of motion. F sp F pull F sp = -kx
Sample Problem: It takes 180 J of work to compress a certain spring 0.10 m. a)What is the spring constant of the spring? b)To compress the spring an additional 0.10 m, does it take 180J, more than 180 J, or less than 180J. Verify your answer with a calculation
DO NOW You have two springs that are identical except that spring 1 is stiffer than spring 2 (k 1 >k 2 ). On which spring is more work done a) if they are stretched using the same force? b) if they are stretched the same distance? Spring2, k 2 smaller/looser so spring stretches farther with same force Spring1, k 1 larger/stiffer so need larger F to stretch same distance
Potential Energy Energy associated with forces that depend on the position and/or configuration of an object. Eg. Wound up clock spring has PE because as it unwinds it can do work moving the clock hands. Eg. Gravitational PE. Heavy brick held high in air has PE because of its position. When released it has ability to do work.
FGFG FHFH Gravitational Potential Energy, U g y2y2 y1y1 h=1m To lift an object of mass m vertically a height h (constant velocity): m=1kg Hand increases the energy of ball by 10J Gravity decreases the energy of ball by 10J But where did the energy that the gravitational force took from the ball go?
FGFG FHFH Gravitational Potential Energy, GPE h2h2 h1h1 h=1m m=1kg The 10 J of work done lifting the book was stored by the gravitational force and then converted to kinetic energy. The gravitational field stores POTENTIAL ENERGY mgh. Gravity is a conservative force. But where did the energy that the gravitational force took from the ball go?
FGFG h2h2 h1h1 hh Looses U g Fall Rise Gains U g When gravity (or any conservative force) does negative work, system gains U. When gravity (or any conservative force) does positive work, system looses U. If only conservative forces act on isolated system, total mechanical E is conserved and No work is done by external forces that would transfer E in or out Ball NOT Isolated WGWG Ball Earth Isolated system E conserved W DRAG Ball Earth NOT Isolated E lost
Gravitational Potential Energy, U g Energy associated with an objects position in the gravitational field. SI unit of PE: Joule PE is a scalar The higher an object is above the ground, the more gravitational potential energy it has Only changes in gravitational PE are relevant and depend ONLY on change in vertical height and NOT on the path taken.
How does the gravitational PE depend on the path taken to get to h? d FGFG FHFH hh FNFN Path-INDEPENDENT hh
Energy and Conservative Forces Forces such as gravity that store potential energy and for which the work done does not depend on the path taken, but only on initial and final positions, are called conservative forces. FGFG h In ALL cases
What about Friction? Hand increases the energy of book by 10J Friction decreases the energy of ball by 10J But where did the energy that the frictional force took from the book go? x = 1m FGFG FNFN F Push =10 fKfK
What about Friction? But where did the energy that the frictional force took from the book go? x = 1m FGFG FNFN F Push fKfK It is NOT stored as potential energy. It is converted to heat energy (nonmechanical) and dissipated. Friction is a nonconservative force.
xfxf Elastic Potential Energy, U S F spring =kx F Push xx F spring = - kx Hand increases the balls energy Spring decreases the balls energy
Elastic Potential Energy F spring F Push xx But where did the energy that the spring force took from the ball go? The work done compressing the spring was stored by the spring and converted to kinetic energy. The spring stores Elastic POTENTIAL ENERGY 1/2kx 2. Elastic force is conservative.
Potential Energy o If a conservative force does positive work on an object, potential energy is lost (K gained) o If a conservative force does negative work on an object, potential energy is gained (K lost) o In general, the change in PE associated with a particular conservative force is equal to the negative of the work done by that force if object moved from one point to another.
Conservative Forces Nonconservative Forces Gravitational (U g =mgh) Friction Elastic (U S =1/2kx 2 )Air resistance ElectricTension in a cord Motor or rocket propulsion Applied push or pull - Path dependent -do not store energy that is available to convert to K - Path independent -store energy that is available to convert to K
Work is path independent. o Work can be calculated from the starting and ending points only. o The actual path is ignored in calculations. Work along a closed path is zero. o If the starting and ending points are the same, no work is done by the force. Work changes potential energy. Examples o Gravity o Spring Force Conservation of mechanical energy holds! Conservative Forces
Work is path dependent. o Knowing the starting and ending points is not sufficient to calculate the work. Work along a closed path is NOT zero. Work changes mechanical energy. Examples o Friction o Drag (air resistance) Conservation of mechanical energy does not hold! Non-conservative Forces
Energy and Conservative Forces Q: Assume a conservative force moves an object along the various paths. Which two works are equal? Q: Which two works when added together, give a sum of zero? A: W 2 = W 3 (path independence) A: W 1 + W 2 = 0 or W 1 + W 3 = 0 (work along a closed path is zero)
Work-Energy Theorem General form: Nonconservative forces change mechanical energy. If nonconservative work is negative, as it often is, the mechanical energy of the system will drop.
Conservation of Mechanical Energy If only conservative forces act, the total mech energy of an isolated system neither increases or decreases. If only conservative forces act on a system:
Conservation of Mechanical Energy o In any isolated system, the total energy remains constant: E = 0 o Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but can only be transformed from one type of energy to another. o An isolated system is one in which no work is done on the system so that no energy is transferred into or out of the system. If gravity and a spring interact with an object to store energy or transform energy, then earth and spring must be part of the system

Work Done by Nonconservative Forces Nonconservative forces change mechanical energy. They add or remove energy to the system. If nonconservative work is negative, as it is for friction, the mechanical energy of the system will drop and the amount of energy lost is equivalent to the work done by the non conservative force.
