of a body relative to a reference point, as measured by a particularobserver in a particular frame of reference MOTION •Gravitation is a naturalphenomenon by which all objects with mass attract each other. In everyday life, gravitation is most familiar as the agency that endows objects withweight. GRAVITATION •Friction is theforce that opposes the relative motion of two surfaces in contact . It is not a fundamental force, as it is derived from electromagnetic forces be tweenatoms. FRICTION Wind Energy •Wind can be used as a source of energy (windmills, sailing ships, et c.) •Really just kinetic energy •Example: wind passing through a square meter at 8 meters per second –Each second we have 8 cubic meters –Air has density of 1.3 kg/m3, so (8 m3)× (1.3 kg/m3) = 10.4 kg of air each second –½mv2 = ½× (10.4 kg)× (8 m/s)2 = 333 J –333 J every second •Stronger winds→ more power (likev2) Chemical Energy •Electrostatic energy (associated with charged particles, like electrons) is stored in the chemical bonds of substances. •Rearranging these bonds can release energy (some reactionsrequire energy to be put in) Chemical Energy Examples •Burning a wooden match releases about one Btu, or 1055 Joules (a match is about 0.3 grams), so this is >3,000 J/g, nearly 1 Cal/g •Burning coal releases about 20 kJ per gram of chemical energy, Energy from Food •We get the energy to do the things we do out of food (stored solar energy in the form of chemical energy). •Energy sources recognized by our digestive systems: –Carbohydrates: 4 Calories per gram –Proteins: 4 Calories per gram –Fats: 9 Calories per gram (like gasoline) THANK YOU THANK YOU Daily Life Physics Download this Document for FreePrintMobileCollectionsReport DocumentReport this document?Please tell us reason(s) for reporting this document Spam or junk
