Energy and Work • A body experiences a change in energy when one or more forces do work on it. A body must move under the influence of a force or forces to say work was done. • A force does positive work on a body when the force and the displacement are at least partially aligned. Maximum positive work is done when a force and a displacement are in exactly the same direction. • If a force causes no displacement, it does zero work. • Forces can do negative work if they are pointed opposite the direction of the displacement.
Calculating Work in Physics B • If a force on an object is at least partially aligned with the displacement of the object, positive work is done by the force. The amount of work done depends on the magnitude of the force, the magnitude of the displacement, and the degree of alignment. • W= F r cos q F F r
Forces can do positive or negative work. • When the load goes up, gravity does negative work and the crane does positive work. • When the load goes down, gravity does positive work and the crane does negative work. • Ranking Task 1 F mg

Problem: A droplet of water of mass 50 mg falls at constant speed under the influence of gravity and air resistance. After the drop has fallen 1.0 km, what is the work done by a) gravity and b) air resistance?
Problem: A sled loaded with bricks has a mass of 20.0 kg. It is pulled at constant speed by a rope inclined at 25o above the horizontal, and it moves a distance of 100 m on a horizontal surface. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between the sled and the ground is 0.40, calculate • The tension in the rope. • The work done by the rope on the sled • The work done by friction on the sled.
F m Work and a Pulley System • A pulley system, which has at least one pulley attached to the load, can be used to reduce the force necessary to lift a load. • Amount of work done in lifting the load is not changed. • The distance the force is applied over is increased, thus the force is reduced, since W = Fd.
Work as a “Dot Product” Thursday, October 9, 2008
Calculating Work a Different Way • Work is a scalar resulting from the multiplication of two vectors. • We say work is the “dot product” of force and displacement. • W = F • r • dot product representation • W= F r cos q • useful if given magnitudes and directions of vectors • W = Fxrx + Fyry + Fzrz • useful if given unit vectors
The “scalar product” of two vectors is called the “dot product” • The “dot product” is one way to multiply two vectors. (The other way is called the “cross product”.) • Applications of the dot product • Work W = F d • Power P = F v • Magnetic Flux ΦB = B A • The quantities shown above are biggest when the vectors are completely aligned and there is a zero angle between them.
Why is work a dot product? F s W = F • r W = F r cos Only the component of force aligned with displacement does work.
Problem: Vector A has a magnitude of 8.0 and vector B has a magnitude of 12.0. The two vectors make an angle of 40o with each other. Find A•B.
Problem: A force F = (5.0i + 6.0j – 2.0k)N acts on an object that undergoes a displacement of r = (4.0i – 9.0j + 3.0k)m. How much work was done on the object by the force?
Problem: A force F = (5.0i – 3.0j) N acts upon a body which undergoes a displacement d = (2.0i – j) m. How much work is performed, and what is the angle between the vectors?

Announcements • Pass in Ch 7: Problems 5,6,7 • Monday, I will collect 11,12,13
Work and Variable Forces • For constant forces • W = F • r • For variable forces, you can’t move far until the force changes. The force is only constant over an infinitesimal displacement. • dW = F • dr • To calculate work for a larger displacement, you have to take an integral • W = dW = F • dr
F(x) xb W = F(x) dx xa x xa xb Work and variable force The area under the curve of a graph of force vs displacement gives the work done by the force.

Announcements • If you were absent Friday, pass in Ch 7: Problems 5,6,7 • Pass in Chapter 7, Problems 11,12,13
Net Work or Total Work • An object can be subject to many forces at the same time, and if the object is moving, the work done by each force can be individually determined. • At the same time one force does positive work on the object, another force may be doing negative work, and yet another force may be doing no work at all. • The net work, or total, work done on the object (Wnet or Wtot) is the scalar sum of the work done on an object by all forces acting upon the object. • Wnet = ΣWi
The Work-Energy Theorem • Wnet = ΔK • When net work due to all forces acting upon an object is positive, the kinetic energy of the object will increase. • When net work due to all forces acting upon an object is negative, the kinetic energy of the object will decrease. • When there is no net work acting upon an object, the kinetic energy of the object will be unchanged. • (Note this says nothing about the kinetic energy.)
Kinetic Energy • Kinetic energy is one form of mechanical energy, which is energy we can easily see and characterize. Kinetic energy is due to the motion of an object. • K = ½ m v2 • K: Kinetic Energy in Joules. • m: mass in kg • v: speed in m/s • In vector form, K = ½ m v•v • Ranking Tasks 1234

Power • Power is the rate of which work is done. • No matter how fast we get up the stairs, our work is the same. • When we run upstairs, power demands on our body are high. • When we walk upstairs, power demands on our body are lower. • Pave = W / t • Pinst = dW/dt • P = F • v
Units of Power • Watt = J/s • ft lb / s • horsepower • 550 ft lb / s • 746 Watts

Conservative and Non-Conservative Forces Wednesday, October 15, 2008
Announcements • Chapter 7, Problems 29,30,39 • Exam repair must be done by Friday immediately after school. That means Th, Fr mornings or lunch.
More about force types • Conservative forces: • Work in moving an object is path independent. • Work in moving an object along a closed path is zero. • Work is directly related to a negative change in potential energy • Ex: gravity, electrostatic, magnetostatic, springs • Non-conservative forces: • Work is path dependent. • Work along a closed path is NOT zero. • Work may be related to a change in mechanical energy, or thermal energy • Ex: friction, drag, magnetodynamic
Potential Energy • A type of mechanical energy possessed by an object by virtue of its position or configuration. • Represented by the letter U. • Examples: • Gravitational potential energy, Ug. • Electrical potential energy , Ue. • Spring potential energy , Us. • The work done by conservative forces is the negative of the potential energy change. • W = -ΔU
Gravitational Potential Energy (Ug) • The change in gravitational potential energy is the negative of the work done by gravitational force on an object when it is moved. • For objects near the earth’s surface, the gravitational pull of the earth is roughly constant, so the force necessary to lift an object at constant velocity is equal to the weight, so we can say • ΔUg = -Wg = mgh • Note that this means we have defined the point at which Ug = 0, which we can do arbitrarily in any given problem close to the earth’s surface. h Fapp mg
Spring Potential Energy, Us • Springs obey Hooke’s Law. • Fs(x) = -kx • Fs is restoring force exerted BY the spring. • Ws = Fs(x)dx = -k xdx • Ws is the work done BY the spring. • Us = ½ k x2 • Unlike gravitational potential energy, we know where the zero potential energy point is for a spring.
X Y Z • Problem: Three identical springs (X, Y, and Z) are hung as shown. When a 5.0-kg mass is hung on X, the mass descends 4.0 cm from its initial point. When a 7.0-kg mass is hung on Z, how far does the mass descend?
Sample problem: Gravitational potential energy for a body a large distance r from the center of the earth is defined as shown below. Derive this equation from the Universal Law of Gravity. • Hint 1: dW = F(r)•dr • Hint 2: ΔU = -Wc (and gravity is conservative!) • Hint 3: Ug is zero at infinite separation of the masses.
