A tow truck exerts a force of 11,000 N to pull a car out of a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m in 25 seconds. What is the power of the tow truck?

What quantity are you trying to calculate?

The Power (P) the tow truck uses to pull the car = __

What formula contains the given quantities and the unknown quantity?

Power = Work/Time =(Force X Distance)/Time

Perform the calculation.

Power = (11,000 N X 5.0 m)/25 s

Power = (55,000 N•m)/25 sor 55,000 J/25 s

Power = 2,200 J/s = 2,200 W

1 Joule per second = 1 Watt

1000 Watts = 1 kilowatt or 1000 W = 1 kW

Calculating Power

A tow truck exerts a force of 11,000 N to pull a car out of a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m in 25 seconds. What is the power of the tow truck?

Look Back and Check

The answer tells you that the tow truck used 2,200 W to pull the car. This value is about the same power that three horses would exert, so the answer is reasonable.

Calculating Power

Practice Problem a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m in 25 seconds. What is the power of the tow truck?

A motor exerts a force of 12,000 N to lift an elevator 8.0 m in 6.0 seconds. What is the power produced by the motor?

(12,000 N x 8.0 m)/6.0 s

= 16,000 W or 16 kW

- What Is Work?

Calculating Power

Suppose you use your DVD player & TV with a combined power rating of 250 W for 40 hours over the course of a month. How many kilowatt-hours did you add to the electric bill? Remember to convert units.

How much money did you add to the electric bill if the electric company charges 7 cents (\$0.07) per kWh?

250 W = 0.250 kW

Amount of kWh = 0.250 kW x 40 hours = 10 kWh

Cost = 10 kWh x \$0.07 per kWh = \$0.70 or 70 cents

• Determine the hypothesis, independent variable, dependent variable, and 2 or moreconstants for the experiment:

• A student believes that bacteria grows quicker in warmer environments and slower in a cooler environment. This student is using petri dishes (little plastic dishes) and incubators of varying temperatures to cultivate the bacteria.

• Hypothesis- Bacteria will grow quicker the warmer it gets (as temperature goes up).

• Ind. Variable- Temperature

Electricity Usage and Power rating of 250 W for 40 hours over the course of a month. How many kilowatt-hours did you add to the electric bill? Remember to convert units.

• The amount of money you add to the electric bill can be determined by how long you use certain appliances and the power rating of those appliances.

• Power is the rate at which the work gets done, so power is the amount of work done in a certain amount of time.

• Power = Work/Time or

• (Force x Distance)/Time

• And Power = strength of the electric current x voltage

• Power is measured in Watts (W) or kilowatts (kW).

• Examples- Light Bulbs range from 40 W to 100 W.

• 1 Watt = 1 (N x m)/s or 1 J/s

• 1000 Watts = 1 kilowatt

Electricity Usage and Power rating of 250 W for 40 hours over the course of a month. How many kilowatt-hours did you add to the electric bill? Remember to convert units.

• Electric companies charge about 7 cents (\$0.07) per kilowatt-hour (kWh).

• So, if use an appliance with a 1000 W (or 1 kW) power rating for 100 hours over the course of a month, then you used 1 kW x 100 hours

• = 100 kWh.

• To determine the money added to the bill, multiply the kWh by the money per kWh…

• 100 kWh x 0.07 dollars/kWh = \$7.00

The Meaning of Work

• Work is done on an object when the object moves in the same direction in which the force is exerted. Work= Force x distance

A tow truck exerts a force of 11,000 N to pull a car out of a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m. What is the work done by the tow truck?

Work = Force x distance (in the direction of the force)

Work = 11,000 N x 5.0 m = 55,000 N x m (Newton meters)

1 N x m = 1 Joule = 1 J

So, Work of the tow truck = 55,000 Joules or 55,000 J

Calculating Work

Suppose you get a ditch. It moves the car a distance of 5 m. What is the work done by the tow truck?super strong exert a force of 500 N by moving a person 2 m out of the way of a moving truck. How much work did you do?

Work = 500 N x 2 m = 1000 N x m (Newton-meters)

So, Work = 1000 Joules or 1000 J
