## Unit 3 PhysicsEnergy

### Energy

• The ability to do WORK…

• Measured in JOULES (J)

### Law of Conservation of Energy

• energy cannot be created or destroyed

only transferred from one form to another

Electric  Light

Chemical  Mechanical

### 2 forms of mechanical energy

1. Kinetic energy (KE)

-energy due to motion

ex: anything moving

KE = ½ mv2

(J) (kg)(m/s)2

(N) (m)

### Calculate KE

A 1216kg car traveling at 10m/sec.

KE = ½ mv2

m = 1216kg

v = 10m/sec

KE = ½ (1216kg)(10m/sec)2

KE = ½ (1216kg)(100(m/s)2 )

KE = 60,800J

2. Potential energy (PE)

-energy due to position or condition

ex: book high on a shelf

stretched rubber band

wound up clock

-the only PE we calculate is gravitational potential

PE = m g h

(J) (kg)(m/s2)(m)

(N)(m)

### Calculate PE

m =

g =

500N

PE = m g h

h = 100m

PE = (500N) (100m)

PE = 50,000J

### Energy

7 Types of Energy

• 1. Light - energy traveling in waves

• 2. Mechanical - energy of lifting, bending, etc… (work)

• 3. Thermal - molecular motion

5. Nuclear – energy in atomic nuclei (holds protons & neutrons together)

• 7. Chemical - energy stored in chemical bonds

4. Electrical – moving electrons

6. Sound - vibrations

### Work – Energy Theorem

• All work is energy,

but not all energy is work

### Work

-transfer of energy through motion

*Object must move in direction force applied!

### Work

• Equation: W = Fd

W = work

F = force

d = distance

• Work is measured in Joules (J)

J = N m

*Joule is always (N)(m), never (N)(cm)!!

F = 20N

d = 5m

W = Fd

W = (20N)(5m)

W = 100J

### A force of 10,000N is applied to a stationary wall. How much work performed on the wall?

F = 10,000N

d = 0m

W = Fd

W = (10,000N)(0m)

W = 0J

### Check up:

• Where does the pendulum have greatest PE?

• Where does the pendulum have greatest KE?

Greatest PE

Greatest PE

Greatest KE

### Check up:

• Which of the 3 vehicles has the greatest KE?

• Which car has the greatest KE?
