CHAPTER 5 WORK AND MACHINES

2
WORK The transfer of energy to cause or make an object move

3
WORK If there is no movement, no work is done Ex: Lifting a text book (work) vs pushing on a brick wall (no movement = no work)

4
WORK AND ENERGY When work is done, a transfer of energy occurs You become tired when you walk or carry things up a flight of stairs

5
JOULE The unit used to express work (J)

6
HOW DO YOU CALCULATE WORK? Work = Force X Distance Or W = F x D

7
TRY IT You apply a force of 10 N to a shopping cart. You moved the cart 10 m. How much work did you do on the shopping cart?

8
POWER The rate at which work is done or energy is transferred

9
WATT The unit used to express power. Symbol for Watt (W) Usually written in italics

10
HOW DO YOU CALCULATE POWER? Power = Work/Time Or P = W/T

11
TRY IT It takes you 5 s to do 100 J of work on a shopping cart to move it down the sidewalk. What is your power output?

12
MACHINES A device that makes doing work easier Changes force (increases it) DOES NOT change the amount of work

13
WORK DONE BY MACHINES Input force – force that is applied to the machine = F in Output force – the force applied by the machine = F out

14
WORK INPUT B/c of friction machines aren‘t 100% efficient Work Input= force YOU exert on machine = W in Input Distance = distance YOU are using Ex: Rowing boat Input force - how hard you pull oars Input distance - how much oar handles move

15
WORK OUTPUT Output Force = force exerted by machine Output distance = distance machine uses Work Output = what machine does/accomplishes = Wout Ex: Rowing boat Output force - how hard oars push water Output distance - distance oar ends move in water Work Output - moving through water

16
WORK INPUT AND OUTPUT

17
CONSERVING ENERGY When energy is used by a machine, some of the energy is transferred as heat due to friction W out is never greater than W in W out is always smaller than W in

18
MECHANICAL ADVANTAGE Advantage of using a particular machine Mechanical Advantage Equation: Mechanical Advantage = output force (in newtons) input force (in newtons) OR MA = F out / F in

19
TRY IT Calculate the mechanical advantage of a hammer if the input force is 125N and the output force is 2000N.

20
MECHANICAL EFFICIENCY Measure of how much of the work put into a machine is changed into useful work output by the machine Calculating Efficiency: Efficiency(%) = output work (in joules) x 100% input work (in joules OR efficiency = W out / W in x 100% Higher the number, the more efficient

21
TRY IT Find the efficiency of a machine that does 800J of work if the input work is 2400J.

22
TYPES OF MACHINES (SIMPLE MACHINES) 6 Simple Machines make other machines 1.Lever Family 1.Lever 2.Pulley 3.Wheel & axle 2.Inclined Plane Family 1.Simple inclined plane 2.Wedge 3.Screw

23
LEVERS Have a rigid arm that turns around a fulcrum 3 classes: 1.1st class 2.2nd class 3.3rd class

24
1ST CLASS LEVER Fulcrum in middle of arm Exs: scissors, pliers, hammer claw, seesaw

25
2ND CLASS LEVER Fulcrum at one end and force at other end Load in middle Exs: wheelbarrow, door, nutcracker (MA > 1)

26
3RD CLASS LEVER Fulcrum at one end, force in middle, and load on other end Exs: tweezers, biceps

27
PULLEY Fulcrum in middle of circle Lever = rope More pulleys – easier work

28
TYPES: A.) Fixed wheel attached in a fixed position MA = 1

29
B.) Movable attached to the object being moved MA = 2

30
C.) Block and Tackle Combination of fixed and movable pulleys MA = depends on the number of rope segments

31
WHEEL & AXLE 2 different sized wheels Axle is fulcrum, wheel is lever Exs: steering wheel, screw driver Gears – toothed W & A

32
MECH. ADV. OF A WHEEL AND AXLE MA = Radius of Wheel/Radius of Axle

33
INCLINED PLANE Spreads work over long distances Easier to use a long ramp Exs: stairs, ramps, escalators

34
MECH. ADV. OF INCLINE PLANES MA = Length/Height (L/H)

35
WEDGE 2 inclined planes back to back Holds together or separates objects Exs: nails, axes

36
WEDGES

37
SCREW Threads are spiraled incline plane Exs: jar lid, spiral staircase

38
SCREW

39
COMPOUND MACHINE More than 1 simple machine together Ex: scissors - lever (handles) and wedge (blade)
