To Do Work, Forces Must Cause Displacements

W = F∙d∙cosθ = 0

Only the horizontal component of the force (Fcosθ) causes a horizontal displacement.

- It is important to recognize that the angle has a precise definition. It is the angle between the force and the displacement vectors.

F & d are in the same direction,

θ is 0o.

- Springs are a special instance of a device that can store elastic potential energy due to either compression or stretching.
- A force is required to compress or stretch a spring; the more compression/stretch there is, the more force that is required to compress it further.
- For certain springs, the amount of force is directly proportional to the amount of stretch or compression (x); the constant of proportionality is known as the spring constant (k).

- F in the force needed to displace (by stretching or compressing) a spring x meters from the equilibrium (relaxed) position. The SI unit of F is Newton.
- k is spring constant. It is a measure of stiffness of the spring. The greater value of k means a stiffer spring because more force is needed to stretch or compress it that spring. The Si units of k are N/m. depends on the material made up of the spring. k is in N/m
- x the distance difference between the length of stretched/compressed spring and its relaxed (equilibrium) spring.

- At the end of the Shock Wave roller coaster ride, the 6000-kg train of cars (includes passengers) is slowed from a speed of 20 m/s to a speed of 5 m/s over a distance of 20 meters. Determine the braking force required to slow the train of cars by this amount.

Wnet = ∆KE = KEf - KEi

- The above problems have one thing in common: there is a force which does work over a distance in order to remove mechanical energy from an object.
- The force acts opposite the object's motion and thus does negative work which results in a loss of the object's total amount of mechanical energy. In each situation, the work is related to the kinetic energy change.

KEi + Wext = 0 J

- There are a variety of ways to categorize all the types of forces.
- Contact force: Forces that arise from the physical contact of two objects.
- Field force exist between objects, even in the absence of physical contact between the objects.
- In this lesson, we will learn how to categorize forces based upon whether or not their presence is capable of changing an object's total mechanical energy.
- Conservative force can never change the total mechanical energy of an object
- Non-conservative forces will change the total mechanical energy of the object

- For our purposes, we will simply say that non-conservative forces include the applied force, normal force, tension force, friction force, and air resistance force. And for our purposes, the conservative forces include the gravity forces, magnetic force, electrical force, and spring force.

- When net work is done upon an object by an non-conservative force, the total mechanical energy (KE + PE) of that object is changed.
- If the work is positive work, then the object will gain energy.
- If the work is negative work, then the object will lose energy.
- The gain or loss in energy can be in the form of potential energy, kinetic energy, or both.
- The work done will be equal to the change in mechanical energy of the object.

- When the only type of force doing net work upon an object is conservative force (for example, gravitational and spring forces), the total mechanical energy (KE + PE) of that object remains constant. In such cases, the object's energy changes form.
- For example, as an object is "forced" from a high elevation to a lower elevation by gravity, some of the potential energy of that object is transformed into kinetic energy. Yet, the sum of the kinetic and potential energies remain constant. This is referred to as energy conservation.

- The quantitative relationship between work and mechanical energy is expressed by the following equation:

TMEi + Wext = TMEf

or

KEi + PEi + Wext = KEf + PEf

The equation states that the initial amount of total mechanical energy (TMEi) plus the work done by external forces (Wext) is equal to the final amount of total mechanical energy (TMEf). Note the work can be positive and negative.

- In each of these examples, a non-conservative force does work upon an object over a given distance to change the total mechanical energy of the object.
- If the work is positive, then the object gains mechanical energy. The amount of energy gained is equal to the work done on the object.
- If the work is negative, then the object loses mechanical energy. The amount of mechanical energy lost is equal to the work done on the object.
- In general, the total mechanical energy of the object in the initial state (prior to the work being done) plus the work doneequals the total mechanical energy in the final state.

- A block weighing 15 N is pulled to the top of an incline that is 0.20 meter above the ground, as shown below. If 5.0 joules of work are needed to pull the block the full length of the incline, how much work is done against friction?

KEi + PEi + Wext = KEf + PEf

The external forces are applied force and friction force

0 + 0 + Wapp + Wf = 0 + (15 N)(0.20 m)

5.0 J + Wf = 3.0J

Wf = -2.0 J

2.0 J of work is done to overcome friction

example

- A shopping cart full of groceries is sitting at the top of a 2.0-m hill. The cart begins to roll until it hits a stump at the bottom of the hill. Upon impact, a 0.25-kg can of peaches flies horizontally out of the shopping cart and hits a parked car with an average force of 500 N. How deep a dent is made in the car (i.e., over what distance does the 500 N force act upon the can of peaches before bringing it to a stop)?

Initially:PE = (0.25 kg)(9.81 m/s2)(2 m) = 4.9 J

KE = 0 J (the peach can is at rest)

Finally: PE = 0 J (the can's height is zero)

KE = 0 J (the peach can is at rest)

Wext = (500 N) • (d) • cos 180 = -(500 N)•d

KEi + PEi + Wext = KEf + PEf4.9 J + (-500 N)∙d = 0 J

d = 0.0098 m

In the diagram below, 450. joules of work is done raising a 72-newton weight a vertical distance of 5.0 meters. How much work is done to overcome friction as the weight is raised?

KEi + PEi + Wext = KEf + PEf

There are two external forces: applied force and friction force

The applied force did 450 J of work:

0 + 0 + 450 J + Wf = 0 + (72 N)(5.0m)

450 J + Wf = (72 N)(5.0 m)

Wf = -90 J

90 J of work is done to overcome friction

- When external force does work on an object, its total mechanical energy is changed.
- Note: the mechanical energy can be either potential energy (in which case it could be due to springs or gravity) or kinetic energy. Given this fact, the above equation can be rewritten as
- KEi + PEi + Wext = KEf + PEf
- Note: the work done by external forces can be a positive or a negative work term. it is dependent upon the angle between the force and the motion. If the angle is 180o as it occasionally is, then the work term will be negative. If the angle is 0o, then the work term will be positive.

KEi + PEi + Wext = KEf + PEf

The external force is friction force only

- Whenever work is done upon an object by an external force (or nonconservative force), there will be a change in the total mechanical energy of the object.

KEi + PEi + Wext = KEf + PEf

If onlyinternal forces are doing work (no work done by external forces), then there is no change in the total amount of mechanical energy. The total mechanical energy is said to be conserved.

Wext = 0

KEi + PEi = KEf + PEf

KEi + PEi = KEf + PE

KEi + PEi = KEf + PEf

- In these situations, the sum of the kinetic and potential energy is everywhere the same.

KEi - KEf = PEf - PEi

Decrease in KE = Increase in PE

- As the potential energy is increased, the kinetic energy is decreased.
- As the potential energy is decreased, the kinetic energy is increased.
- The increase in potential energy equals to the decrease in kinetic energy and vise versa.

- We would say that energy is transformed or changes its form from kinetic energy to potential energy (or vice versa); yet the total amount present is conserved - i.e., always the same.

- Consider a pendulum bob swinging to and fro on the end of a string. There are only two forces acting upon the pendulum bob. Gravity (an internal force) acts downward and the tensional force (an external force) pulls upwards towards the pivot point. The external force does not do work since at all times it is directed at a 90-degree angle to the motion.
