Work and Machines - What Is Work? The Meaning of Work *Work is done on an object when the object moves in the same direction in which the force is exerted.

Work and Machines Work and Power The amount of work performed on an object can be determined by multiplying force times distance. Work = Force x Distance *The SI unit of work is the Joule (J = Newton x meter) Power is the rate at which work gets completed or the amount of work done on an object in a given amount of time. Power = work / time Or Power = Force x Distance / Time *The SI unit for power is measured in Joules/second or Watts (W) 1 J/s = 1 W A watt is a small unit of power so large amounts are measured in larger units called kilowatts (1,000 watts). 746 watts = 1 horsepower (non SI unit)

Work and Machines So why is measuring power useful?

Work and Machines Horsepower looks much different today!

Work and Machines Calculating Power A tow truck exerts a force of 11,000 N to pull a car out of a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m in 25 seconds. What is the power of the tow truck? Read and Understand What information have you been given? Force of the tow truck (F) = 11,000 N Distance (d) = 5.0 m Time (t) = 25 s - What Is Work?

Work and Machines Calculating Power A tow truck exerts a force of 11,000 N to pull a car out of a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m in 25 seconds. What is the power of the tow truck? Plan and Solve What quantity are you trying to calculate? The Power (P) the tow truck uses to pull the car = __ What formula contains the given quantities and the unknown quantity? Power = (Force X Distance)/Time Perform the calculation. Power = (11,000 N X 5.0 m)/25 s Power = (55,000 Nm)/25 s or 55,000 J/25 s Power = 2,200 J/s = 2,200 W - What Is Work?

Work and Machines Calculating Power A tow truck exerts a force of 11,000 N to pull a car out of a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m in 25 seconds. What is the power of the tow truck? Look Back and Check Does your answer make sense? The answer tells you that the tow truck used 2,200 W to pull the car. This value is about the same power that three horses would exert, so the answer is reasonable. - What Is Work?

Work and Machines Calculating Power Practice Problem A motor exerts a force of 12,000 N to lift an elevator 8.0 m in 6.0 seconds. What is the power produced by the motor? 16,000 W or 16 kW - What Is Work?

Work and Machines Calculating Power Practice Problem A crane lifts an 8,000-N beam 75 m to the top of a building in 30 seconds. What is the crane’s power? 20,000 W or 20 kW - What Is Work?

Work and Machines QuestionAnswer Asking Questions Before you read, preview the red headings. In a graphic organizer like the one below, ask a what or how question for each heading. As you read, write answers to your questions. What is work? Work is done when an object moves in the same direction in which the force is exerted. How can you calculate work? Work = Force X Distance What is power?Power is the rate at which work is done. - What Is Work?

Work and Machines - How Machines Do Work Input and Output Work The amount of input work done by the gardener equals the amount of output work done by the shovel.

Work and Machines Machines and Work A machine is a device that allows you to do work in a way that is easier. Machines can be simple or complex. Input force is the force you exert on the machine. Output force is the force the machine exerts on an object. The input force x input distance = input work The output force x output distance = output work *The amount of output work can never be greater than the amount of input work when using a simple machine!

Work and Machines - How Machines Do Work What Is a Machine? A machine makes work easier by changing at least one of three factors: 1.A machine may change the amount of force you exert. 2.A machine may change the distance over which you exert your force. 3.A machine may change the direction in which you exert your force. *In each case, the amount of work stays the same!

Work and Machines Mechanical Advantage A machines mechanical advantage is the number of times a machine increases a force exerted on it. Mechanical advantage = Output force / Input force When output force is greater than input force, the mechanical advantage of a machine is greater than 1 and this increases the force. If the mechanical advantage is less than 1, then distance over which the force is exerted will increase. If the mechanical advantage is equal to 1, then direction has changed but output and input force will remain the same.

Work and Machines Mechanical Advantage The input force and output force for three different ramps are shown in the graph. - How Machines Do Work

Work and Machines Mechanical Advantage 400 N Interpreting Data: If an 80-N input force is exerted on Ramp 2, what is the output force? - How Machines Do Work

Work and Machines Mechanical Advantage Ramp 1: 10; Ramp 2: 5; Ramp 3: 2 Interpreting Data: Find the slope of the line for each ramp. - How Machines Do Work

Work and Machines Mechanical Advantage The slope of each ramp’s graph equals the change in output force divided by the change in input force. This is the formula for mechanical advantage. Ramp 1 has the greatest mechanical advantage. Drawing Conclusions: Why does the slope represent each ramp’s mechanical advantage? Which ramp has the greatest mechanical advantage? - How Machines Do Work

Work and Machines Efficiency of Machines The work you put into a machine is equals the work done by the machine (in an ideal situation). However, output work is always less than the input work for any machine in reality! Efficiency is a comparison of output work to input work and is expressed as a percentage (%). The higher the percentage, the greater the efficiency and vice versa. To calculate the efficiency of a machine, divide the output work by the input work and multiply the result by 100 percent Efficiency = Output work / Input work x 100% Ideally all machines strive towards 100% efficiency *No machine is 100% efficient due to friction! A machine’s measured mechanical advantage is called actual mechanical advantage

Work and Machines Calculating Efficiency You do 250,000 J of work to cut a lawn with a hand mower. If the work done by the mower is 200,000 J, what is the efficiency of the lawn mower? Read and Understand What information have you been given? Input Work (W input ) = 250,000 J Output Work (W output ) = 200,000 J - How Machines Do Work

Work and Machines Calculating Efficiency You do 250,000 J of work to cut a lawn with a hand mower. If the work done by the mower is 200,000 J, what is the efficiency of the lawn mower? Plan and Solve What quantity are you trying to calculate? The efficiency of the lawn mower = __ What formula contains the given quantities and the unknown quantity? Efficiency = Output work/Input work X 100% Perform the calculation. Efficiency = 200,000 J/250,000 J X 100% Efficiency = 0.8 X 100% = 80% The efficiency of the lawn mower is 80 percent. - How Machines Do Work

Work and Machines Calculating Efficiency You do 250,000 J of work to cut a lawn with a hand mower. If the work done by the mower is 200,000 J, what is the efficiency of the lawn mower? Look Back and Check Does your answer make sense? An efficiency of 80 percent means that 80 out of every 100 J of work went into cutting the lawn. This answer makes sense because most of the input work is converted to output work. - How Machines Do Work

Work and Machines Calculating Efficiency Practice Problem You do 20 J of work while using a hammer. The hammer does 18 J of work on a nail. What is the efficiency of the hammer? 90% - How Machines Do Work

Work and Machines Calculating Efficiency Practice Problem Suppose you left your lawn mower outdoors all winter. Now it’s rusty. Of your 250,000 J of work, only 100,000 J go to cutting the lawn. What is the efficiency of the lawn mower now? 40% - How Machines Do Work
