## Work and Power

### What is work?

• Definition: energy transferred by a _____________ to move an object a _____________ (when both the force and the motion of the object are in the same direction.)

### Work or Not?

• According to the scientific definition, what is work and what is not?

• a teacher lecturing to her class

• a mouse pushing a piece of cheese with its nose across the floor

### Work or Not?

• According to the scientific definition, what is work and what is not?

• a teacher lecturing to her class

• a mouse pushing a piece of cheese with its nose across the floor

• Why?

### What’s work?

• A scientist delivers a speech to an audience of his peers.

• A body builder lifts 350 pounds above his head.

• A mother carries her baby from room to room.

• A father pushes a baby in a carriage.

• A woman carries a 20 kg grocery bag to her car?

### What’s work?

• A scientist delivers a speech to an audience of his peers. No

• A body builder lifts 350 pounds above his head. Yes

• A mother carries her baby from room to room. No

• A father pushes a baby in a carriage. Yes

• A woman carries a 20 km grocery bag to her car? No

### Formula for work

Work = _________ x Distance

• The unit of work is newton x meters

• One ____________ is equal to one ______

• So, the unit of work is a __________

• J= 1 N x m = 1 kg x m2/s2

### W=FD

Work = Force x Distance

Calculate: If a man pushes a concrete block 10 meters with a force of 20 N, how much work has he done?

### W=FD

Work = Force x Distance

Calculate: If a man pushes a concrete block 10 meters with a force of 20 N, how much work has he done? 200 joules

(W = 20N x 10m)

### Power

• Power is the __________ at which work is done.

• Power = Work*/Time

or P= W/t

• The unit of power is the watt.

• 1 watt= ______________

### Work vs. Power

• Work vs. Power

### Concept Check

• 1. Describe the difference between work and power?

• 2. How is work being done in the following situation

• Powerlifting

• Doing a handstand

• What is the unit for lightbulbs? Why is that unit used?

### Math Practice

• 1. A crane use an average force of 5300 N to lift a girder 25 m. How much work does the crane do on the girder?

• 2. Aylssa powerlifts Kyle over her head 1 m with a force of 250 N. How much work was done?

• 3. While rowing in a race, John uses his arms to exert a force of 165 N per stroke while pulling the oar 0.800 m. How much work does he do in 30 strokes?

### Math Practice

• 4. While rowing in a race, John does 3960 J of work on the oars in 60.0 s. What is his output in watts.

• 5. Steve using a jack does 4320 J of work to lift a car 1.5 m in 100.0 s. What is the power output?

• 6. Mr. Farrell walks up the stairs on his way to make copies. He weight 622 Newtonsand the stairs go 5.75 vertically.

a. Calculate my output if I climb the stairs in 8.9s.

b. What is I climb the stairs in 7.2 s?
