If the

mass of the hammer is 300 kg and the billet is reduced in size by 15 mm, in a time of 0.0048

s, what is the average force applied by hammer?

Solve the problem using DAlemberts principle and the conservation of energy method and

compare and contrast the methods as suitable for solving the particular problem.

Names of variables used:

m = 300 kg - the mass of the hammer

h = 2 m - the initial height of the hammer

s = 15 mm - the billet size reduction

t = 0.0048 s - the time when the hammers force was applied

Please note: Im writing this as me, not an unknown one because it is easier. I hope the

lack of scientific language wont disturb you (smile).

There is one problem with this problem: too many known variables! Because the distance s

and the time t are both given one may calculate from kinetics the hammers deceleration and,

multiplying it by the hammer mass calculate the force F. Also multiplying the deceleration and

the time t one may find the initial speed v of the hammer when it struck the billet.

From the other side this speed is fully determined by the height h, or rather h is determined

by v. One of the given variables is redundant.

Fortunately I calculated the hammer speed using kinetics i.e using the formula:

p m

v = 2 g h = 2 9.81 2 = 6.264 (1)

s

and from the distance s and time t (also using kinetics)

2s 2 0.015 m

v= = = 6.25 (2)

t 0.0048 s

Both results are very similar (their difference is about 0.2%) so I assume I can use as many

known variables as needed and forget about the redundant one.

If you are not familiar with formulas in equations (1,2) here is how to get them:

2

1 1 v

2 g h = 2 g g t2 = 2 g g = v2 (3)

2 2 g

and

1 2 1v 2 1

s= at = t = vt (4)

2 2 t 2

Equation (4) means that in an uniformly decelerated movement with the initial speed v and

the final speed of zero the distance is the average speed multiplied by time.

Solution - using the energy conservation principle. This method (in case of the current

problem) is much simpler than the other. The potential energy of the hammer raised on the

height h changes into the hammers kinetic energy and then into the work W of the billet

resistive force F on the distance s. The energy conservation equation is very simple:

mgh = F s (5)

From eq. (5) I calculate the force F

mgh

F = (6)

s

The units of [F] are newtons but The distance s should be expressed in meters, s = 0.015 m.

Lets calculate the numeric value of F:

300 9.81 2

F = 392000 N = 392 kN (7)

0.015

In one of the previous problems I added the distance s to h when calculating the potential

energy difference. Yes, I should do it here too, but 0.015 m is a small height comparing to 2 m,

so it may be dropped from the calculations.

Solution - using the dAlamberts principle. This principle says that in a moving reference

frame the sum of all acting forces, real (which are the gravity and the bullet resistance) and

the inertia force should reduce to zero.

The inertia force is equal m a, where a is the deceleration. It acts downwards, in the opposite

way as the billet resistance. (Please NOTE ! The inertia force acts in a direction opposite to

the vector F . It tries to hold the current speed of the hammer head. Thats the reason it is

called an inertia force). The gravity force m g acts downwards too. So the equation for forces

looks as follows:

F ma mg = 0 (8)

The deceleration may be obtained from the distance s and time t (compare the discussion in

the beginning of my text).

1 2 2s

s= at therefore a= 2 (9)

2 t

Im interested in the value of a, so I calculate it before substituting into equation (8)

2 0.015 m

a= 2

1302 2 (10)

0.0048 s

The deceleration is about 130 times stronger than the Earth gravity and in the equation (8)

the m g part might be dropped. It is the same thing as forgetting the small difference in the

potential energy on the distance s. From eq. (8) I calculate F:

F = m (a + g) = 300 (1302 + 10) = 393.6 kN (11)

The result is very similar to that calculated form eq. (7). Remember that previously I under-

estimated the change in the potential energy so the results are even closer. The other sources

of difference are the time t and distance s which are not exactly proper for a hammer head

dropped from h = 2 m.

As you can see the second method took more calculations but results are the same (they would

be exactly the same if the problems data were correct).
