Work is done when a force move it point of application along the direction of its

line action.

The work W done by the force on the body is defined as the product of a force

and displacement in the direction of the force.

W = F d.

The SI unit of Work is the JOULE (J) and 1 J = 1 Nm

The Joule in defined as the amount of work done when a force of one Newton

displaces an object by one meter.

If the force does not act in the direction in which there is motion then the force

will have to be resolved into components. As shown the diagram below, the

component of the force which acts in the direction of motion is F cos θ, in which

case the work done W is given as

W = (F cos θ) d

And then

W = F d. The maximum work is done

When θ = 90 cos θ = 0

W=0 The displacement here is zero

When θ = 180 cos θ =

W = F d. Work done against the

displacement

Question 1

A 50-kg crate is pulled 40 m along a horizontal floor by a constant force

exerted by a person, Fp = 100 N, which acts at a 37° angle as shown in Figure.

The floor is rough and exerts a friction force Ffr = 50 N. Determine the work

done by each force acting on the crate, and the net work done on the crate.

WN = 0 (Work done by normal, displacement = 0)

The work done by FP is

WP = (FP cos ) x d = (100 N) cos 37 x (40 m) = 3200 J.

The work done by the friction force is

W fr = (F fr cos 180°) x d = (50 N) (-1) x (40 m) = 2000 J.

The angle between the displacement x and F fr is 180 because they point in

opposite directions. Since cos 180 = - 1, we see that the force of friction does

negative work on the crate.

Finally, the net work can be calculated in two equivalent ways.

(1) The net work done on an object is the algebraic sum of the work done by

each force, since work is a scalar:

Wnet = Wg + WN + WP + Wfr = 0 + 0 + 3200 J - 2000 J = 1200 J

(2) The net work can also be calculated by first determining the net force on

the object and then taking its component along the displacement:

(Fnet)x = FP cos - F fr.

Then the net work is Wnet = (Fnet)X x d = (FP cos - F fr) d

= (100 N cos 37° 50 N) (40 m)

= 1200 J as before.

Work Done by a Varying Force

If the force acting on an object is constant, the work done by that force can be calculated

using W = F d.

But in many cases, the force varies in magnitude or direction during a process. For

example:

as a rocket moves away from Earth, work is done to overcome the force of gravity,

which varies as the inverse square of the distance from the Earth's centre.

Other examples are the force exerted by a spring, which increases with the

amount of stretch,

or the work done by a varying force in pulling a box or cart up an uneven hill.

The work done by a varying force can be determined graphically. By finding the area

under a force displacement curve. We divide the distance into small segments d. For each

segment, we indicate the average of F, by a horizontal dashed line. Then the work done for

each segment is W = Fd, which is the area of a rectangle (d) wide and (F), high.

The total work done to move the object a total distance d = dB – dA is the sum of the

areas of the rectangles (five in the case shown in above)

ENERGY

There are two types of mechanical energy namely: Kinetic energy and Potential

Energy.

object of mass m that is moving in a straight line with an initial speed u. To

accelerate it uniformly to a speed v, a constant net force Fnet is exerted on it

parallel to its motion over a distance d.

Then the net work done on the object is

Wnet = Fnet S.

We apply Newton's second law,

Fnet =ma,

and use

v 2 u 2 2aS

With v1 as the initial speed and v2 the final speed. We solve for a,

v2 u 2

a

2S

Then substitute this into Fnet = ma, and determine the work done:

v2 u 2

Wnet Fnet S maS m S

2S

or

Wnet 12 mv 2 12 mu 2

We define the quantity ½ mv 2 to be the translational kinetic energy (KE) of the

object:

EK=½ mv 2

So Wnet E K 2 E K1

Or

Wnet E K

The net work done on an object is equal to the change in its kinetic energy.

This is known as the work-energy principle.

POTENTIAL ENERGY

Potential energy is defined as the energy a body has by reason of its position in a field of

force or by state. There are serious types of potential energy and each day is associated

with a particular force. The three types of potential energies that we will deal with in this

course are:

Gravitational potential energy

Elastic potential energy

Electric potential energy

The potential energy of a body can be defined as the amount of work that was done on it

to give it that energy

The gravitational potential energy (EP) is the energy that the object mass m has by virtue

of its position relative to the surface of the earth. That position is measured by the height

h of the object relative to an arbitrary zero:

SI unit of gravitational potential energy: joule (J)

Consider a body of mass m at height h above ground the G.P.E = EP is equal to work done

against the downward pull of gravity.

W = Fs

= mgh

EP = mgh

Elastic potential energy is the energy a body possesses by

reason of its state.

For example: A spring can store energy when in a state of

Tension or Compression.

Hooke’s law states that the extension of a spring is directly

proportional to the force applied provided that the elastic limit

is not exceeded.

FP x

FP kx

Where k is the spring constant

As shown by the graph the energy stored in the spring is equal

to work done in stretching the spring, which is also the area

under the graph.

W = Average Force displacement

W = ½ [0 + FP] x [½ FP] x = [½ k x] x = ½ k x2

So for figure 6-15 the elastic potential energy stored

E.P.E = ½ k (xf)2 which is the area under the graph

CONSERVATIVE AND NONCONSERVATIVE FORCES

A force is Conservative when the work it does on a moving object is independent of the

path between the object's initial and final positions.

A force is Nonconservative when the work it does on a moving object is dependent of the

path between the object's initial and final positions.

is obtained from ½ mv2 = mgh. The The friction force is always in the direction exactly

mass cancels in this equation and so opposed to the direction of motion. Hence, for a

the speed will be the same, regardless constant magnitude friction force,

of the mass of the rider. Since they Wfr = Ffr d,

descend the same vertical height, they so if d is greater (as for the curved path), then W is

will finish with the same speed. greater.

In the real world situations, conservative and nonconservative forces act simultaneously on

an object. So we can now extend the work-energy theorem to include potential energy.

We write the total (net) work W net as a sum of the work done by conservative forces, W C,

and the work done by nonconservative forces, W NC:

Wnet = W C + W NC.

Then, from the work-energy principle, we have

Wnet = EK

WC + W NC =EK

Where EK = EK 2 - EK 1, and so

WNC = EK - W C.

Work done by a conservative force can be written in terms of gravitational potential

energy:

WC = EP.

We substitute this into the last equation above:

WNC = EK + EP.

Thus, the net work W NC done by ALL the nonconservative forces acting on an object is equal

to the total change in kinetic and potential energy.

It must be emphasized that all the forces acting on a body must be included in

Equation, either in the potential energy term on the right (if it is a conservative force), or

in the work term, WNC, on the left (but not in both!).

The principle of the conservation of mechanical energy states that:

The total mechanical energy (E = EK + EP) of an object remains constant as the object

moves provided that the net work done by external nonconservative forces is zero,

WNC = 0 J.

So

0 = EK + EP.

0 = (EK 2 EK 1) + (EP 2 – EP 1)

EK 1 + EP 1 = EK 2 + EP 2

E1 = E2

E1 the total energy before = E2 the total energy after

Consider an object of mass m falling from a point B at a height h to another

point A at a height of x above the ground

The Gravitational Potential energy (Ep) at A = mgx

The velocity at can be obtained since v2 = u2 + 2as

u = 0 m/s, a=g m/s2 and s = h-x

v2 = 2g(h-x)

EK = ½ m.2g (h-x)

EK = mg (h – x)

Thus at any point such as A, the total mechanical energy of the falling object

is equal to the original energy at B. The mechanical energy is hence constant

or conserved. This is the case for a conservative field.

Other Forms of Energy;

Besides the kinetic energy and potential energy of ordinary objects, other forms of energy

can be defined as well. These include electric energy, nuclear energy, thermal energy, and

the chemical energy stored in food and fuels. With the advent of the atomic theory, these

other forms of energy have come to be considered as kinetic or potential energy at the

atomic or molecular level. For example, according to the atomic theory, thermal energy is

interpreted as the kinetic energy of rapidly moving molecules when an object is heated,

the molecules that make up the object move faster. On the other hand, the energy stored in

food and fuel such as gasoline can be regarded as potential energy stored by virtue of the

relative positions of the atoms within a molecule due to electric forces between the atoms

(referred to as chemical bonds). For the energy in chemical bonds to be used to do work, it

must be released, usually through chemical reactions. This is analogous to a compressed

spring which, when released, can do work. Enzymes in our bodies allow the release of

energy stored in food molecules. The violent spark of a spark plug in an automobile allows

the mixture of gas and air to react chemically, releasing the stored energy which can then do

work against the piston to propel the car forward. Electric, magnetic, and nuclear energy also

can be considered examples of kinetic and potential (or stored) energy.

Energy cannot be created or destroyed but be transform from one form to

another or the total energy in a closed system is a constant

Example

If an electric motor is supplied with 1000 J of energy, for example, 850J of mechanical

energy, 140J of heat energy and 10 J of sound energy may be produced.

The Principle of the Conservation of Energy and is one of the key principles in science.

Learning how to convert energy from one form to another more efficiently is one of the main

goals of modern science and technology.

PROBLEM SOLVING CONSERVATION OF ENERGY

1. Draw a picture.

2. Determine the system for which energy will be conserved: the object or objects and

the forces acting.

3. Ask yourself what quantity you are looking for, and decide what are the initial (point

1) and final (point 2) locations.

4. If the body under investigation changes its height during the problem, then choose

a y = 0 level for gravitational potential energy. This may be chosen for

convenience; the lowest point in the problem is often a good choice.

5. If springs are involved, choose the unstretched spring position to be x (or y) = 0.

6. If no friction or other nonconservative forces act, then apply conservation of

mechanical energy:

EK 1 + EP 1 = EK 2 + EP 2

7. Solve for the unknown quantity.

(W NC) will be needed:

WNC = EK + EP.

To be sure which sign to give W NC, or on which side of the equation to put it, use your

intuition: is the total mechanical energy increased or decreased in the process?

Problem solving is not a process that can be done by following a set of rules. The

steps above is thus not a prescription, but is a summary of steps to help you get

started in solving problems involving energy.

EXAMPLE 1

Falling rock. If the original height of the stone is y, = h = 3.0 m, calculate the stone's speed

when it has fallen to 1.0 m above the ground.

EXAMPLE 2

A roller-coaster car moving without friction illustrates the conservation of mechanical energy.

A Roller-coaster speed using energy conservation, Assuming the height of the hill in

Figure above is 40 m, and the roller-coaster car starts from rest at the top, calculate (a)

the speed of the roller-coaster car at the bottom of the hill, and (b) at what height it will

have half this speed. Take y = 0 at the bottom of the hill.

Example 3

Estimate the kinetic energy and the speed required for a 70-kg pole vaulter to just pass

over a bar 5.0 m high. Assume the vaulter's centre of mass is initially 0.90 m off the ground

and reaches its maximum height at the level of the bar itself.

EXAMPLE 4-

Toy dart gun. A dart of mass 0.100 kg is pressed against the spring of a toy dart gun as

shown in Figure below. The spring (with spring constant k = 250 N/m) is compressed

6.0 cm and released. If the dart detaches from the spring when the latter reaches its

normal length (x = 0), what speed does the dart acquire?

A ball of mass m = 2.60 kg, starting from rest, falls a vertical distance h = 55.0 cm before

striking a vertical coiled spring, which it compresses (see Fig. ) an amount Y = 15.0 cm.

Determine the spring constant of the spring. Assume the spring has negligible mass.

Hint

Measure all distances from the point where the ball first touches the uncompressed

spring (y = 0 at this point).

EXAMPLE 6 Bungee jump

Dave jumps off a bridge with a bungee cord (a heavy stretchable cord) tied around his

ankle (Fig. 6-25). He falls for 15 meters before the bungee cord begins to stretch.

Dave's mass is 75 kg and we assume the cord obeys Hooke's law, F = - kx, with k =

50 N/m. If we neglect air resistance, estimate how far below the bridge Dave will fall

before coming to a stop. Ignore the mass of the cord (not realistic. however).

The roller-coaster car in figure is found to reach a vertical height of only 25 m on the

second hill before coming to a stop (Fig. 6-27). It travelled a total distance of 400 m.

Estimate the average friction force (assume constant) on the car, whose mass is 1000 kg.

m. (a) Estimate the jogger's power output in watts and horsepower. (b) How much energy

did this require?

EXAMPLE 8 Power needs of a car.

Calculate the power required of a 1400-kg car under the following circumstances: (a) the

car climbs a 10 hill (a fairly steep hill) at a steady 80 km/h; and (b) the car accelerates

along a level road from 90 to 110 km/h in 6.0 s to pass another car. Assume the retarding

force on the car is F R = 700 N throughout. See Figure (Be careful not to confuse FR, which

is due to air resistance and friction that retards the motion, with the force F needed to

accelerate the car, which is the frictional force exerted by the road on the tires-the

reaction to the motor-driven tires pushing against the road.)
