### Chapter 2.1.1Work in Mechanical Systems

Principles of Technology I

Edinburg North High School

Notes 2.1.1Work in Mechanical Systems

Objectives:

• Define work done by force or torque in a mechanical system.
• Explain the relationship between work, force applied, and the distance an object moves.
• Solve problems, given force and distance information in English and SI units.
Work in Mechanical Systems
• Work is done when a force moves an object through a distance (Fig. 2.1).
• Chain hoist
• Gears
• We will see that with rotating systems it will be easier to calculate Wwith 
Work Done by a Force
• Work – a quantity equal to the product of the applied force and the distance though which the object moves.
• What are the units for work?
• The distance and direction through which an object moves is called displacement.
Work is the product of two vector quantities:
• In this chapter we will only consider work in one dimension.
• If F and d are in the same direction – positive work
• If F and d are in opposite directions – negative work
Example 2.1 Work Done by A Weight Lifter (p.85)
• Calculate the amount of work done by a weight lifter in lifting a 200 lb barbell a distance of 5 ft.
A closer look at lifting a barbell (Fig. 2.2)
• Initial force to get barbell moving, a bit stronger
• As barbell moves at a constant speed
• At highest point, and held in place, no work is being done even though
• You feel tired because work is still being done by your muscles.
Example 2.2. Work Done to Stop a Trailer
• A car and trailer are moving to the right. The driver applies the brakes and stops the car in 5 m. A constant braking force of 900 N is applied over this distance. What is the direction of the braking force? How much work is done on the car by this force?
• In general, the work done on an object equals to the objects change in energy state.
• In Example 2.1
• In Example 2.2
Sample Problem A
• A 2 kg object is lifted onto a table 1.5 m high. Calculate the work necessary to move this object.
Sample Problem B
• A moving object has a KE equal to 300 J. A force is applied on the object in the same direction an increases it KE to 400 J. How much work was done on the object?
