Information about Work, Energy & Power

A set of slides created to teach Work, Energy & Power to learners at Bishops Diocesan College in Cape Town.

Energy – Kinetic Energy Energy is the capacity to do work. Energy of movement W = f.∆x Energy is a scalar quantity and has the F = m.a same unit as work viz. Joule. =>W = ma∆x When ENERGY is v f 2 = vi2 +2a∆x but transferred WORK is vi = 0 and vf = v done.A mass (m) is accelerated from restto a velocity v. => ∆x = v 2 /2a Vi = 0 vf = v W = m.a.(v 2/2a)FORCE m m m m.s -2 a m SAMPLE ONLY => EK = 1/2mv 2

Work Energy Theorem The work done on an object by a net force is equal to the change in the object’s kinetic energy: EK = 0 ∆Ek = work done (Net) Ep = mgh If V = const then ∆Ek = W nett = ........ With Conservative forces (...............................) at any point during the fall of an object the mechanical energy is equal to the potential energy of the object before it began to fall. ∆E (mech) = ......... E p (........) = E k (.............) Ek = (mgh) Ep = 0 With Non conservative forces present (friction): Energy is lost through work then E =SAMPLE+ Ek + ........................... Ep ONLY SAMPLE ONLY

A pendulum • A person of 60kg is lifted to a height of 30m on a slingshot pendulum and then released what is its maximum speed?Total Mechanical Energy(Top)ETop = Ep + EK = mgh + 1/2mv2 m = (60)(10)(30) + 0 = 18000J h EBottom = Ep + Ek = mgh + 1/2mv2 18 000 = 0 + 1/2 (60)v2 SAMPLE ONLY v2 SAMPLE ONLY 600 = 18000/30 = -1

Power • Power is the RATE at which WORK is done. Work Power = time Joules (J) Units: Watts (W) = Time (s) Since v = ∆x/t, Power can be found by P = F.vIf a force of 20N is exerted over a distance of 5m for a time of 30s the powerused would be. W = F.∆x = (20).5 = 100J P = W/t = 100/30 = 3.3 W SAMPLE ONLY SAMPLE ONLY

WE Th Eg2 m=2kg f=2N F=4N S 10 m D• The horizontal force F of 4 N is pulling the block whilst a frictional force f of 2 N opposes the motion. If the block’s velocity is 2 m.s-1 when it passes point S, what is its velocity when it passes point D? How much work is done against friction?Fnet = F + f .: Fnett = 4 – 2 = 2 N W f = Ff∆xcosθ = 2*10*cos(180)and the angle between Fnet and ∆x is 0o = 20*(-1)Wnet = ∆Ek Fnet∆xcosθ = ∆Ek = -20 JF∆xcos0o = ½ mvf2 – ½ mvi22x10x1 = ½ 2vf2 – ½ 2x22 = vf2 – 4vf2 = 20 + 4 = 24∴vf = ONLYSAMPLE4.90 m.s-1 SAMPLE ONLY
