Chapter 11: Work

• How many kinds of energy are there?

• Under what conditions is energy conserved

•How does a system gain or lose energy?

- Example 11.1P307
- Example 11.6P311
- Example 11.8P313

Force F does work as the particle moves from

Si to Sf

- We integrate both sides

Question: 1 Kg ball free fall from 5m high place to the ground, how much work is

Done by the gravitational force?

- Constant Force
- Θ is the angle between force and displacement.

The work done by a force depends on the angle θ between the force and displacement, not on the direction the particle is moving. The work done on all four particles in the figure is the same, despite the face that they are moving in four different direction.

- Dot product:
- It is scalar
- We also can do dot product using components

- From the definition of work
- (1) Do integral
- (2) Find the area under the force-vs –position graph
- Ex. The spring force is a variable force F = -kx
( we chose equilibrium position x(e) as origin )

- Conservative force: A force for which the work done on a particle as it moves from an initial to final position is independent of the path
For example

- Gravitational force is conservative force, If it does positive
work, always make potential energy decrease.

- Gravitation force and spring force are conservative force.

Independent of path

- A force for which the work is not independent of the path is called a nonconservative force.
For example, friction.

• If there are only conservative forces

because Wc = ΔK =-ΔU→ ΔK + ΔU =0

( total mechanical energy is conserved)

• If there is nonconservative force

ΔK + ΔU = Wnc or

- Use work and energy to solve the problem.
- (a) the table is frictionless, W(fric)=0
- Ei = m2 gh + m1 gy1
- Ef =1/2 (m1+m2)V2 +m1 g y1
- From Ei = Ef, you can find V
- (b) if there is a friction force between
m1 and table. f(k) = μ(m1g)

Ei – f(k)h = Ef

m2 gh -μ(m1g)h = ½(m1+m2)V2

P11.56 The spring shown in Fig. is compressed 50cm and used to launch a 100 Kg students. The track is frictionless until it stars up the incline. The student’s coefficient of kinetic friction on the 30o incline is 0.15

- The system is compressed spring, student and the ground.
- Just before and after student is losing the contact with the spring, the energy conservation equation is:
- How far up the incline does the student go?

V2=0

h1

h2

- The total energy at top of 10 m should equal the total energy
at bottom. After that student goes to incline with friction.

We can apply the energy and work equation.

With h2 = s sin(30o) and friction

F(k) = μ mg cos(30o)

Get

- The work done by conservative force is

- Power: rate of transfer of energy
is defined as:

unit of power is Watt.

When work as the source of energy trasfer
