Work, potential and kinetic energy

What equation links work, force and distance?
A force of 10N is applied to a box to move it 2m along the floor. What is the work done on the box? If 50J of work is done on a box using 15N of force, how far was the box moved? What equation is used to calculate increases in gravitational potential energy? A crate of mass 100kg was lifted to a height of 75m. How much work was done on the crate. Is this the same as the gravitational potential energy that the crate now has? A book of weight 2N is lifted 1.5m onto a shelf. How much poetential energy has the book gained? What is the equation that links kinetic energy with mass and velocity? If an object of mass 15kg is travelling at 5m/s, how much kinetic energy does it have? A car is travelling at 30m/s and has kinetic energy of 450kJ, what is its mass? A tennis ball has a mass of 0.06kg and has kinetic energy of 2.94kJ when served, what is its speed?

A forklift truck was used to stack boxes on a trailer.
It lifted a box weighing 1900N through 4.5m. Calculate the work done on the box. Show your working. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………Work done = ………………..J (3 marks) (b) The efficiency of the forklift truck is about 80%. Explain what happens to the wasted energy? …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… (1 mark)

The diagram shows how far a dummy in a car crash test moves before it is stopped by the seat belt. The graph shows the force exerted by the seat belt on the dummy during the crash. (i) Write down the equation that links distance moved, force applied and work done. (1 mark) (ii) Calculate the work done to stop the dummy. Show clearly how you work out your answer. Work done = joules (2 marks) (iii) How much energy is transferred from the dummy during the crash?

The diagram shows a tower used for bungee jumping.
A lift takes a person of mass 55 kg, to a platform 64 metres above the ground. (i) Write down the equation that links change in gravitational potential energy, change in vertical height and weight. (1 mark) (ii) Calculate the increase in the gravitational potential energy of the person when going from the ground to the platform. Show clearly how you work out your final answer. (Gravitational field strength = 10 N/kg) Increase in gravitational potential energy joules (2 marks)

(b) The falling bungee jumper reaches a maximum speed when joules of gravitational potential energy have been transferred into kinetic energy. (i) Write down the equation that links kinetic energy, mass and speed. (1 mark) (ii) Calculate the maximum speed of the falling bungee jumper. Show clearly how you work out your final answer. Speed = m/s (3 marks) (c) As the rope stretches the bungee jumper slows down. Describe fully the energy transfer that happens as the bungee jumper continues to fall towards the ground. To gain full marks in this question you should write your ideas in good English. Put them into a sensible order and use the correct scientific words. (3 marks)

A pile driver is used to push steel supports into the ground
A pile driver is used to push steel supports into the ground. A pile driver does this because it has a lot of kinetic energy as it hits the steel support. (a) Give two ways in which the kinetic energy of the pile driver as it hits the steel support could be increased. (2 marks) (b) The mass of the pile driver is 500 kg. The kinetic energy of the pile driver as it collides with the steel support is found to be J. Calculate the speed of the pile driver just before it hits the steel support. Show clearly how you work out your answer and give the unit. Speed of the pile driver = (4 marks)

A car which is moving has kinetic energy.
The faster a car goes, the more kinetic energy it has. The kinetic energy of this car was J when travelling at 30 m/s. Calculate the total mass of the car. Show clearly how you work out your answer and give the unit. Mass of the car = (5 marks)
