### Chapter 7

Potential Energy

• Potential energy is the energy associated with the configuration of a system of objects that exert forces on each other

• The forces are internal to the system

• There are many forms of potential energy, including:

• Gravitational

• Electromagnetic

• Chemical

• Nuclear

• One form of energy in a system can be converted into another

• This system consists of Earth and a book

• Do work on the system by lifting the book through Dy

• The work done is mgyb - mgya

Fig 7.1

• The energy storage mechanism is called potential energy

• A potential energy can only be associated with specific types of forces

• Potential energy is always associated with a system of two or more interacting objects

• Gravitational Potential Energy is associated with an object at a given distance above Earth’s surface

• Assume the object is in equilibrium and moving at constant velocity

• The work done on the object is done by and the upward displacement is

• The quantity mgy is identified as the gravitational potential energy, Ug

• Ug = mgy

• Units are joules (J)

• The gravitational potential energy depends only on the vertical height of the object above Earth’s surface

• In solving problems, you must choose a reference configuration for which the gravitational potential energy is set equal to some reference value, normally zero

• The choice is arbitrary because you normally need the difference in potential energy, which is independent of the choice of reference configuration

• The mechanical energy of a system is the algebraic sum of the kinetic and potential energies in the system

• Emech = K + Ug

• The statement of Conservation of Mechanical Energy for an isolated system is Kf + Ugf= Ki+ Ugi

• An isolated system is one for which there are no energy transfers across the boundary

• Look at the work done by the book as it falls from some height to a lower height

• Won book = DKbook

• Also, W = mgyb – mgya

• So, DK = -DUg

You are designing apparatus to support an actor ofmass 65 kg who is to “fly” down to the stage during the performance of a play. You attach the actor’s harness to a 130-kg sandbag by means of a lightweight steel cable running smoothly over two frictionless pulleys as in Figure 7.5a. You need 3.0 m of cable between the harness and the nearest pulley so that the pulley can be hidden behind a curtain. For the apparatus to work successfully, the sandbag must never lift above the floor as the actor swings from above the stage to the floor. Let us identify the angle as the angle that the actor’s cable makes with the vertical when he begins his motion from rest. What is the maximum value  can have such that the sandbag does not lift off the floor during the actor’s swing?

Since who is to “fly” down to the stage during the performance of a play. You attach the actor’s harness to a 130-kg sandbag by means of a lightweight steel cable running smoothly over two frictionless pulleys as in Figure 7.5a. You need 3.0 m of cable between the harness and the nearest pulley so that the pulley can be hidden behind a curtain. For the apparatus to work successfully, the sandbag must never lift above the floor as the actor swings from above the stage to the floor. Let us identify the angle T = mbagg

7.3 Conservative Forces who is to “fly” down to the stage during the performance of a play. You attach the actor’s harness to a 130-kg sandbag by means of a lightweight steel cable running smoothly over two frictionless pulleys as in Figure 7.5a. You need 3.0 m of cable between the harness and the nearest pulley so that the pulley can be hidden behind a curtain. For the apparatus to work successfully, the sandbag must never lift above the floor as the actor swings from above the stage to the floor. Let us identify the angle

• A conservative force is a force between members of a system that causes no transformation of mechanical energy within the system

• The work done by a conservative force on a particle moving between any two points is independent of the path taken by the particle

• The work done by a conservative force on a particle moving through any closed path is zero

Nonconservative Forces who is to “fly” down to the stage during the performance of a play. You attach the actor’s harness to a 130-kg sandbag by means of a lightweight steel cable running smoothly over two frictionless pulleys as in Figure 7.5a.

For the apparatus to work successfully, the sandbag must never lift above the floor as the actor swings from above the stage to the floor. Let us identify the angle

• A nonconservative force does not satisfy the conditions of conservative forces

• Nonconservative forces acting in a system cause a change in the mechanical energy of the system

For the apparatus to work successfully, the sandbag must never lift above the floor as the actor swings from above the stage to the floor. Let us identify the angle

• Elastic Potential Energy is associated with a spring, Us = 1/2 k x2

• The work done by an external applied force on a spring-block system is

• W = 1/2 kxf2 – 1/2 kxi2

• The work is equal to the difference between the initial and final values of an expression related to the configuration of the system

For the apparatus to work successfully, the sandbag must never lift above the floor as the actor swings from above the stage to the floor. Let us identify the angle

• The elastic potential energy stored in a spring is zero whenever the spring is not deformed (U = 0 when x = 0)

• The energy is stored in the spring only when the spring is stretched or compressed

• The elastic potential energy is a maximum when the spring has reached its maximum extension or compression

• The elastic potential energy is always positive

• x2 will always be positive

• Including all the types of energy discussed so far, Conservation of Energy can be expressed as

DK + DU + DEint = DE system = 0 or

K + U + E int = constant

• K would include all objects

• U would be all types of potential energy

• Conceptualize: Define the isolated system and the initial and final configuration of the system

• The system may include two or more interacting particles

• The system may also include springs or other structures in which elastic potential energy can be stored

• Also include all components of the system that exert forces on each other

• Categorize: Determine if any energy transfers across the boundary

• If it does, use the nonisolated system model, DE system = ST

• If not, use the isolated system model, DEsystem = 0

• Determine if any nonconservative forces are involved

• Analyze: Identify the configuration for zero potential energy

• Include both gravitational and elastic potential energies

• If more than one force is acting within the system, write an expression for the potential energy associated with each force

• If friction or air resistance is present, mechanical energy of the system is not conserved

• Use energy with non-conservative forces instead

• The difference between initial and final energies equals the energy transformed to or from internal energy by the nonconservative forces

• If the mechanical energy of the system is conserved, write the total energy as

• Ei = Ki + Ui for the initial configuration

• Ef = Kf + Uf for the final configuration

• Since mechanical energy is conserved, Ei = Ef and you can solve for the unknown quantity

• In general, if friction is acting in a system:

• DEmech = DK + DU = -ƒkd

• DU is the change in all forms of potential energy

• If friction is zero, this equation becomes the same as Conservation of Mechanical Energy
