7.4 Application of the Concept of Work
7.5 Application of the Concept of Power 7.6 The Importance of Force in Daily Life 3. 7.1 Force What is force? • Push and pull are types of fore which makes an object move • Force cannot be seen but we can see the effects of force • The effects of a force include (a) Force changes the shape of an object (b) Force changes the position of an object (c) Force changes the speed of a moving object (d) Force changes the direction of a moving object 4. Types of force 1. Frictional force 2. Gravitational force 3. Electrostatic force 4. Magnetic force 5. Electric force 5. 1. Frictional force • Produced when two surfaces in contact with each other • It prevent an object at rest from moving 2. Gravitational force • The force of attraction that causes objects to falls towards the Earth

7. Magnetic force • The push or pull force exerts by a magnet • Like poles repel while unlike poles attract each other 5. Electrostatic force • Produced when two different objects are rub against each other • Static electric charges presence • Object with like charges will repel while unlike charges will attract 4. Weight Vs Gravity • The weight of an object depends on the pull of gravity • The force of gravity on the moon is only one.5 kg = 500g 9.sixth of the force of gravity on earth • Thus. the same object will have different weight on earth and the moon 8. Electric force • Produced electric when charges (electron) flow in a conductor • It is used to light up lamps or make electrical appliances work 6. . Weight and mass 1 Kg = 10 Newton Solution Force ÷ Weight = 5 N Mass = 5 ÷ 10 = 0. 7.2 Measuring Force Measuring Force • A force can be measured using a spring balance • The unit of force is Newton (N) • The pointer of the spring balance will be at zero (0) when nothing is hung from the hook 7.3.3 Application of Frictional Force Frictional force • Frictional force occurs whenever two surfaces are in contact with each other.

Friction wears away materials like the soles of shoes 13. Friction enables a person to walk or run without slipping. Factors that affect frictional force • The rougher the surfaces in contact. How to reduce friction force? There are some ways to reduce friction. 15. The disadvantages of friction 1. such as a) Use wheel b) Apply lubricating oil or grease between the surfaces in contact c) Use air cushion to prevents contact between two surface d) Use the ball bearing in axles of vehicles 14. the greater the frictional force acts. Work is said to be done when a force is able to move an object through a distance. Friction slows down movement 3. • Frictional force has direction and magnitude. Friction enables a ladder to lean against the wall and prevent it from sliding 4.• Frictional force is in opposite direction to the moving object and it is parallel to the surface. Examples for work done are (a) Climbing the stairs (b) Dragging a bag Examples for work not done are . Friction enables a vehicle to slowed down and stop when the brake is apply 3.4 Application of the Concept of Work Work Work is the energy used to transfer an object from one place to another. 2. Friction enables a person to hold things steady on hand 12. the greater the frictional force acts • The heavier the object. 11. • When the block starts moving. Friction produced heat which can over heat and damage a machine. To measure the magnitude and identify the direction of the frictional force • The block of wood is pulled with a spring balance on the surface of a table surface of table. The advantages of friction 1. 2. 7. the reading on the spring balance represents the magnitude of the friction force. 10.

Solution: Work done = Force x Distance = 50 N x 4 m = 100 J 17. Calculate the amount of work done. Calculate the power.(a) Pushing against a tree (b) Sleeping on a bed 16. • Measurement of power can be calculated using formula: Power (watt/ W) = Work (joule/ J) ÷ Time (second/S) 18. Calculate work done • Measurement of work done can be calculated using formula: Work done (joule / J) = Force (Newton / N) Distance (metre / m) Example: A lady uses a force of 50 N to move a trolley over a distance of 2 meters.6 The Importance of Force in Daily Life The Importance of Force in Daily Life • Without electrostatic force and electrical force. 7. all electrical appliances would not be able to function The Importance of Gravity Force • Without gravitational force. all objects will be moving constantly and would not be able to stop. all objects will be floating around the air on Earth The Importance of Frictional Force • Without frictional force. Power = work ÷ time = Force × distance Time = 50 × 2 4 = 25 W 19. Calculation of power Example: A lady uses a force of 50 N to move a trolley over a distance of 2 meters in 4 seconds. .5 Application of the Concept of Power Power • Power is the rate of doing work. 7.

compass and appliances that use motor cannot function .The Importance of Magnetic Force • Without magnetic force.
