Energy - the ability of a body or system of bodies to perform work. A body is given energy when a force does work on it.

In physics, work has a special meaning, different to “normal” English.

 A force does work on a body (and changes its energy) when it causes a displacement.  If a force causes no displacement, it does no work.

If a man holds a 50 kg box at arms length for 2 hours as he stands still, how much work does he do on the box? Nada Zip Zilch NONE ZERO

 There is no work done by a force if it causes no displacement.  Forces perpendicular to displacement, such as the normal force, can do no work.  Likewise, centripetal forces never do work.

 Work is the dot product of force and displacement.  Work is a scalar resulting from the interaction of two vectors.

There are three ways to multiply vectors: Scalar Multiplication Dot Product Cross Product

Magnitude of vector changes. Direction of vector does not change. a = 10 m·s -1 F = 50 N If m = 5 kg

Note that the dot product of two vectors gives a scalar. θ

Geometrically, the dot product is the projection of one vector on a second vector multiplied by the magnitude of the second vector. θ

F

F s W = F s W = F s cos 0 o W = F s Maximum positive work

s W = F s W = F s cos  Only the component of force aligned with displacement does work. Work is less. F 

A box is being moved with a velocity v by a force P (parallel to v) along a level floor. The normal force is F N, the frictional force is f k, and the weight of the box is mg. Decide which forces do positive, zero, or negative work.

J = N·m J = kg·m 2 ·s -2 That’s me! Energy is measured in Joules (J).

The area under the curve of a graph of force vs displacement gives the work done by the force. F(x) x xaxa xbxb W =  F(x) dx xaxa xbxb

Let’s look at some examples

A woman pushes a car with a force of 400 N at an angle of 10° to the horizontal for a distance of 15m. How much work has she done?

W = Fscosθ = 400x15x0.985 W = 5900 J

A man lifts a mass of 120 kg to a height of 2.5m. How much work did he do?

Force = weight = 1200N Work = F x d = 1200 x 2.5 Work = 3000 J

NameMass (kg) Force (N) Distance (m) Work of one lift (J) # of lifts in 1 min Total work (J)

distance Force required = weight of object = mass (kg) x 10

NameMass (kg) Force (N) Distance (m) Work of one lift (J) # of lifts in 1 min Total work (J)

Power is the rate of doing work. Power is the amount of work done per unit time. Power is measured in Watts (1 Watt = 1 J/s)

For each of the people in your table, can you calculate their power?

When we stretch or compress a spring, a force arises that attempts to return the spring to its original length.

A force of 125 N is required to extend a spring by 2.8 cm. What force is required to stretch the same spring by 3.2 cm? Step 1: Solve for k Step 2: Solve for the force
