PF1.5: WORK, ENERGY AND POWER

Energy exists in many different forms, eg, kinetic energy E

k

, potential energy U

g

, electrical

energy, and elastic (or spring) energy E

s

. A fundamental principle of nature is that energy

cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed or transferred.

Kinetic Energy KE

Kinetic energy KE, is energy associated with motion.

where m = mass in kilograms (kg), and v is the speed in m/s

The unit of kinetic energy is the joule (J)

If an objects speed is doubled, then its kinetic energy is quadrupled. This is because the

kinetic energy of an object is proportional to its (speed)

2

. Similarly, tripling a cars speed will

increase its kinetic energy ninefold! Naturally this has very dangerous implications for cars

travelling at high speeds.

Gravitational Potential Energy PE

Gravitational potential energy PE is energy that is stored due to its position in a gravitational

field.

where m = mass in kilograms (kg), g = gravitational acceleration (m/s

2

),

and h = height above a reference point (m).

Work W and Energy E

A body that has energy may transfer some, or all, of its energy to another body. The total

amount of energy remains constant (conserved) even if it has been transformed to another

type. The amount of energy transformed (E) is called work W. The body losing energy does

work, the body gaining energy has work done on it.

Work is given by the force multiplied by the displacement through which the force acts, or:

where F = force (N), d = displacement (m)

KE = mv

2

Work = Change in Energy = Force displacement

W = E = F d

PE =mgh

PF1.5 Work, Energy and Power Page 2 of 5 J une 2012

Note: Work is a scalar quantity. The unit of work is the Joule (J)

Consider a force that acts at an angle. For instance, when a block is being pulled with tension

T by a string whose angle of inclination is to the horizontal.

Tension T

d

If the block moves a displacement d metres, then:

where F = T cos , the component of T in the horizontal direction.

Observe how the tension has been resolved in the direction of travel, ie, in the horizontal

direction T cos .

Note: if the force is perpendicular to the displacement no work is done.

The reason: W = F cos d = F cos 90 d = 0, where (90) is the angle between the force

and the displacement through which the force acts. The implication of this is that if the force

acts at an angle to the direction of motion of an object, then the force is less effective

compared with if the same force was acting parallel to the objects motion.

If an object is acted on by a force, then the work done on it is equal to the change in kinetic

energy of the object:

where v

i

is the initial speed and v

f

is the final speed

Force-Distance graphs

If the force is non-uniform then the formula W = F d does not apply. Instead, we present

the information as a force-distance graph and calculate the area beneath the graph to find

the work done by the force.

Recall the other area under a graph, which is the force-time graph that gives the impulse of

a force. Again, these graphs are only useful if the force is not uniform.

Power P

Power P is the rate at which work is done

where v is the speed d/t. The unit of power is the Watt (W).

Note: the formula P = F v can only be used if an object is travelling at a constant speed.

Conservation of Energy

A fundamental principle of nature is that energy is conserved, meaning that while it may

change from one form to another the total amount is always the same. Similarly energy may

be transferred from one type (eg, potential energy) to another (eg, kinetic energy) but again

the overall amount stays constant.

For instance, dropping a stationary ball of mass m from a height h involves a change in

energy from potential to kinetic, or

means change in

Question 2 of the exercise at the end of this worksheet is an illustration of conservation of

energy.

Hookes Law and Elastic Potential Energy

Hookes Law states that the force F applied

to a spring or similar object is proportional to

the springs extension or compression.That is,

where k = force (or spring) constant (N/m)

x = extension or compression

The straight line (the Hookean region)

passing through the origin shown in the graph

at left is given by the slope of the F-x graph. It

gives a measure of the stiffness of the

material: the steeper the slope the stiffer the

material.

Note: The negative sign in the formula above tells us that the restoring force, the ability of a

spring to pull back (or extend) to its original length, is in the opposite direction to the applied

force.

Elastic limit

Objects may obey Hookes Law initially (the straight line section of the graph), but will reach a

point where they becomes non linear (no longer proportional). This point is called the elastic

limit of the spring and is shown by the X on the graph above. The object may start to stiffen,

it could weaken (like chewing gum), or it may eventually break. Stretching an object beyond

the elastic limit produces permanent changes to the structure of the material such that even

when the force is released it doesnt behave the same, and will not return to its original

length.

Elastic (Strain) Potential Energy U

s

The elastic potential energy Us, also known as the strain energy, is the energy stored in an

elastic material, and is given by:

where k = spring constant, x = extension (or compression) of the spring.

Force-Extension (or Compression) Graph

Just as the area under a force-displacement graph gives us the work done by a force (see

above), so the area under a force-extension (or compression) graph allows us to calculate the

work done by a spring.

bicycle vary with distance at the start of a race. The cyclist applies a constant force

over the first 50m of the race and travels at a constant velocity after travelling 40m.
