Part of our everyday lives

 Energetic people

 High cost of electric energy

Energy:
the amount of work a physical system
is capable of performing.

Energy can neither be created nor
consumed or destroyed

When anything happens in the
physical world, energy is somehow
involved.
A measure of the change a force produces.

Definition:
 “The work done by a force acting on an object is
equal to the magnitude of the force multiplied
by the distance through which the force acts”.
Fd W =
Work is done…
…by a force when the object it acts
on moves

NO work is done by pushing
against a stationary wall
no distance

Work IS done by throwing a ball
because the ball moves while
being pushed.
Equation for work:
 In words:



 The direction of the force (F) is assumed to be the same
as the direction of the distance (d)

 A force perpendicular to the direction of motion of an
object cannot do work on the object
Fd W =

Joule (J)
 The SI unit of energy
 Amount of work done by a force of one newton when it acts
through a distance of one meter:



 Example:
 Push a box 8 m across the floor with a force of 100 N
performs 800 J of work:
J m N m N Fd W 800 800 ) 8 )( 100 ( = · = = =
m) (N meter . newton 1 (J) joule 1 · =
 When a force and the
distance through which it
acts are parallel, the work
done is equal to the product
of F and d

 If the forces are NOT
parallel, work done is equal
to the product of d and the
projection of F in the
direction of d.
EXAMPLE

(b)
(c)
cos 0 = 1
The RATE of Doing Work…
 Power is the amount of work done in a specified
period of time
 The more powerful something is, the faster it can do
work

W
P Power
Standard (SI) unit of power is the watt


 Example:
 500W motor can perform 500J of work in 1 s
 … or 250J of work in 0.5 s
 … or 5000J of work in 10 s
 Watts are very small units
 Kilowatts are used most commonly
(J/s) nd joule/seco 1 (W) watt 1 =

 Kinetic – Energy of Motion
 Potential – Energy of Position

 Chemical Energy
 Food converted to energy in our bodies

 Heat Energy
 Heat from burning oil to make steam to drive turbines

 Electric Energy
 Electricity turns motors in homes and factories

 Radiant Energy
 Energy from the sun

due to its motion

factor means that KE
increases VERY rapidly with
increasing speed
When a hammer strikes a nail, the
hammer’s kinetic energy is converted into
work, which pushes the nail into the wood
Example:
 Using a hammer with a 600g head moving at 4
m/s to drive a 5mm nail into a piece of wood,
what is the force exerted on the nail on
impact?

 Potential energy = the energy
stored in a system

1) Elastic potential Energy:
k = spring constant = N/m
x = distance = m
W = PE = (½)kx² = J
Gravitational Potential energy =
the energy a body possesses because
of its position relative to the ground
Gravitational
Potential (PE) = mgh
Energy
h
mg
 It takes work to lift a mass against the pull (force) of gravity

 The force of gravity is m·g, where m is the mass, and g is the
gravitational acceleration
F = mg (note similarity to F = ma)
g = 9.81 m/s
2
on the surface of the earth

 Lifting a height h against the gravitational force requires an
energy input (work) of:
AE = W = F ·h = mgh

 Rolling a boulder up a hill and perching it on the
edge of a cliff gives it gravitational potential
energy that can be later released when the
roadrunner is down below.
 When the boulder falls off the cliff, it picks up speed,
and therefore gains kinetic energy.

 Where does this KE come from??
¬ from the gravitational potential energy

 The higher the cliff, the more kinetic energy the
boulder will have when it reaches the ground.

mgh
becomes
½mv
2

Energy is conserved, so
mgh = ½mv
2


Can even figure out v, since v

= 2gh
Δh
Examples are almost everywhere
 Book on the table
 Skier on the top of a slope
 Water at the top of a waterfall
 Car at the top of a hill
 A stretched spring
 A nail near a magnet
Amount of
gravitational
potential energy
is a function of
the relative
HEIGHT or
DISTANCE of the
objects.
 The Law of Conservation of Energy:
 Energy cannot be created or destroyed, although
it can be changed from one form to another.

 This principle has the widest application to all science

 Applies equally to distant stars and biological processes
in living cells.

 Conservation of energy is significant because, if
the laws of nature…
…are the same at all times (past, present, and future), then
energy must be conserved.
Most mechanical processes involve conversions
between KE, PE, and work

 A car rolling down a hill into a valley
 PE at the top of the hill is converted into KE as the car rolls
down the hill
 KE is converted to PE as the car rolls up the other side

 Total amount of energy (KE+PE) remains constant
ΔKE + ΔPE = 0
KE = 0
(no motion of
the pendulum)

PE increases
as height
increases.

v = ?
A parcel slides down a smooth curved ramp. What is
the speed of the parcel when it reaches the bottom.
The rise of modern civilization

 Impossible without vast resources of energy
 Development of ways to convert energy forms

 Most convenient fuels are limited
 Oil, natural gas, and coal

 Other sources of energy have various problems

 Population increasing, as is demand for energy
High consumption as time
passes due to increasing
population
Limited Supply, Unlimited Demand

 The sun – source of most of our energy
 Food, wood, plants
 Water power – The hydrological cycle
 Wind power – Temperature changes
 Fossil Fuels

 Nuclear and hydrothermal power
 Not related to the sun
Variation due to climate and latitude
$70/watt in 1960, $3/watt today
Economics still limit widespread application
Limited Supply
 Most large deposits of oil and gas have been
found and used up
 Remaining reserves = years??
 No new deposits being formed
 Takes millions of years to produce
petroleum naturally

Problems with coal
 Mining needed to extract from earth
 Air pollution – dangerous to health and
environment

All Fossil Fuels
 Adds CO
2
to atmosphere – greenhouse effect

Kinetic energy of falling water
converted into electricity using
turbines
 New hydro projects unlikely due to
environmental and land-use
constraints

 Two-sided arguments
 Environmental concerns
 Development concerns
Advantages
 Non-polluting
 Don’t contribute to global
warming
 Renewable resource

Disadvantages
 Only work where winds are
powerful and reliable
 Take up a lot of space
 Noisy, some environmental
concerns
Geothermal Energy
Nuclear Energy
Tidal Energy
Fusion Energy
 Technology may be many years into the future

Most alternate energy sources are very
expensive
 Cost of fossil fuels is still the lowest and easiest
to distribute
A baseball (mass is 0.145 kg = 145 g) moving at
30 m/s (67 mph) has kinetic energy:
K.E. = ½×(0.145 kg)×(30 m/s)

= 65.25 kg·m

~ 65 J

A quarter (mass = 0.00567 kg = 5.67 g) flipped
about four feet into the air has a speed on
reaching your hand of about 5 m/s. The kinetic
energy is:
K.E. = ½×(0.00567 kg)×(5 m/s)

= 0.07 J
1 m/s = 2.2369 mph
Calculate the KE for the following:

1) A 1500 kg car moves down the freeway at 67
mph.

2) A 2 kg fish jumps out of the water with a speed
of 2.2 mph

Give answers in kg.m²/s² @ J
1 mph = 0.44703 m/s
Example
 Kinetic energy of a 1000kg car moving at 10 m/s is
50kJ
(50kJ of work must be done to start the car from a
stop, or to stop it when it is moving)
How much gravitational potential energy does
a 70 kg high-diver have on the 10 meter
platform?


How massive would a book have to be to have
a potential energy of 40 J sitting on a shelf
two meters off the floor?
Potential energy of a car pushed off a 45m cliff
