TODAY’S LESSON  Learn what “work” is!

 Learn how to calculate work  See who can do the most work!

 Learn Hooke’s Law.

### Energy -

the ability of a body or system of bodies to perform

work

.

A body is given

energy

a force does

work

when on it.

WORK In physics, English.

work has a special meaning, different to “normal”

### BUT WHAT IS WORK?

 A force does (and changes its energy) when it causes a

work

on a body

displacement

.

 If a force causes no displacement, it does no work.

RIDDLE ME THIS If a man holds a 50 kg box at arms length for 2 hours as he stands still, how much work does he do on the box?

ZERO

NONE

### COUNTERINTUITIVE RESULTS

 There is no work done by a force if it causes no displacement.

 Forces

perpendicular

displacement, such as the normal force, can

do no work

.

to  Likewise, centripetal forces never do work.

### CALCULATING WORK

 Work is the dot product of force and displacement.

 Work is a scalar resulting from the interaction of two vectors.

VECTOR MULTIPLICATION There are three ways to multiply vectors: • Scalar Multiplication • Dot Product • Cross Product

SCALAR MULTIPLICATION • Magnitude of vector changes.

• Direction of vector does not change.

WHICH DOES MORE WORK?

### VECTORS AND WORK

F s

W =

F • s

W = F s cos 0 o W = F s Maximum positive work

### VECTORS AND WORK

F s

W =

F • s

W = F s cos  Only the component of force aligned with displacement does work. Work is less.

### VECTORS AND WORK

W =

F • s

W = F s cos 180 o W = - F s Maximum negative work.

GRAVITY OFTEN DOES NEGATIVE WORK.

When the load goes up, gravity does negative work and the crane does positive work.

When the load goes down, gravity does positive work and the crane does negative work.

POSITIVE, ZERO, OR NEGATIVE WORK?

A box is being moved with a velocity

v

by a force

P

(parallel to

v

) along a level floor. The normal force is frictional force is

F N

, the

f k

, and the weight of the box is

mg

.

Decide which forces do positive, zero, or negative work.

POSITIVE, ZERO, OR NEGATIVE WORK?

### UNITS OF WORK

### WORK AND VARIABLE FORCE

The area under the curve of a graph of force

vs

displacement gives the work done by the force.

F(x) W =  x a x b F(x) dx x a x b x

Let’s look at some examples

WORK DONE (J) = FORCE (N) X DISTANCE (M) A woman pushes a car with a force of 400 N at an angle of 10° to the horizontal for a distance of 15m. How much work has she done?

WORK DONE (J) = FORCE (N) X DISTANCE (M) A woman pushes a car with a force of 400 N at an angle of 10° to the horizontal for a distance of 15m. How much work has she done?

W = Fscosθ = 400x15x0.985

W = 5900 J

WORK DONE (J) = FORCE (N) X DISTANCE (M) A man lifts a mass of 120 kg to a height of 2.5m. How much work did he do?

WORK DONE (J) = FORCE (N) X DISTANCE (M) A man lifts a mass of 120 kg to a height of 2.5m. How much work did he do?

Force = weight = 1200N Work = F x d = 1200 x 2.5

Work = 3000 J

HOW MUCH WORK CAN YOU DO?

Name Mass (kg) Force (N) Distance (m) Work of one lift (J) # of lifts in 1 min Total work (J)

ARM CURLS Force required = weight of object = mass (kg) x 10 distance

OFF YOU GO!

POWER!

POWER!

Power is the rate of doing work. Power is the amount of work done per unit time.

Power is measured in Watts (1 Watt = 1 J/s) Power  Work Done time
