### 7 Conservation of Energy

• Potential Energy

• The Conservation of Mechanical Energy

• The Conservation of Energy

• Mass and Energy

• Hk: 23, 27, 39, 47, 55, 65, 69, 71

### Potential Energy

• Potential Energy is stored energy

• Potential Energy is position dependent (KE is speed dependent)

• Ex. object at higher height has more PE

• Types of PE: gravitational, elastic, electric, magnetic, chemical, nuclear.

• /

### Conservative Forces

• When the work done by a force moving from position 1 to 2 is independent of the path, the force is Conservative.

• The work done by a Conservative Force is zero for any closed path.

• Conservative Forces have associated Potential Energies

• /

### Non Conservative Forces

• Produce thermal energy, e.g. friction

• Work done by Non Conservative Forces is path dependent, e.g. longer path, more work required

• /

### Ex. Elastic Potential Energy

• 100N/m spring is compressed 0.2m.

• F = -kx = -(100N/m)(0.2m) = -20N

• U = ½kx2 = ½(100N/m)(0.2m)2 = 2J

• /

### Ex. Gravitational Potential Energy

• Ex: A 2kg object experiences weight (2kg)(9.8N/kg) = 19.6N.

• At 3m above the floor it has a stored energy of mgy:

• (2kg)(9.8N/kg)(3m) = 48.8Nm = 48.8J.

• /

### Conservation of Energy

• Individual energy levels change.

• Sum of all individual energies is constant.

Energies and speeds are same at height y

Accelerations at y are not same

### Work Energy with Friction

s

Example: The smaller the frictional force fk, the larger the distance, s, it will travel before stopping.

A 2.00kg ball is dropped from rest from a height of 1.0m above the floor. The ball rebounds to a height of 0.500m. A movie-frame type diagram of the motion is shown below.

By energy conservation, the sum of all energies in each column is the same, = E1 = mg(1) = 19.6J

Calculate v2: (use 1st and 2nd columns)

mg(1) = ½ m(v2)2.

g = ½ (v2)2.

v2 = 4.43m/s

Calculate PE-thermal: (use 1st and 5th columns)

mg(1) = mg(1/2) + PE-thermal

mg(1/2) = PE-thermal

PE-thermal = 9.8J

Calculate PE-elastic: (use 1st and 3rd columns)

PE-elastic + PE-thermal = mg(1)

PE-elastic + 9.8 = 19.6

PE-elastic = 9.8J

Calculate v4: (use 1st and 4th columns)

½ m(v4)2 + PE-thermal = mg(1)

½ m(v4)2 + 9.8 = 19.6

½ m(v4)2 = 9.8

(v4)2 = 2(9.8)/2

v4 = 3.13m/s

### Equilibrium

• Stable: small displacement in any direction results in a restoring force toward Equilibrium Point

• Unstable: small displacement in any direction results in a force away from Equilibrium Point

• Neutral: small displacement in any direction results in zero force

### Summary
