**Work-Energy Theorem**• Do work means W = Fs • F = ma • So work gives an object some acceleration • Acceleration means the velocity changes**Derivation of Work-Energy Th.**• F = ma • Fs = mas • vf2 = v02 + 2as solve for as • as = ½ (vf2 – v02) • Fs = m ½ (vf2 – v02) • W = ½ mvf2 – ½ mv02**Kinetic Energy**• Energy due to motion • If something in motion hits an object, it will move a some distance • KE = ½ mv2 • Scalar • Unit is joule (J)**Work-Energy Theorem**• Net external force = change in kinetic energy**Example 1**• A 0.075-kg arrow is fired horizontally. The bowstring exerts an average force of 65 N on the arrow over a distance of 0.90 m. With what speed does the arrow leave the bow? • 39.5 m/s**Example 2**• A foolish skier, starting from rest, coasts down a mountain that makes an angle of 30° with the horizontal. The coefficient of kinetic friction between her skis and the snow is 0.100. She coasts for a distance of 20 m before coming to the edge of a cliff and lands downhill at a point whose vertical distance is 5 m below the edge. How fast is she going just before she lands? • 10.52 m/s**Practice Work**• Do some work on these. • 173 CQ 4 – 8, P 12, 13, 15, 17, 18, 20, 23 • Total of 13 problems
