Physics 211: Lecture 9, Pg 2 Work & Energy Work & Energy z One of the most important concepts in physics Î Alternative approach to mechanics z Many applications beyond mechanics Î Thermodynamics (movement of heat) Î Quantum mechanics. .. z Very useful tools Î You will learn new (sometimes much easier) ways to solve problems

Physics 211: Lecture 9, Pg 3 Forms of Energy Forms of Energy z Kinetic Kinetic : Energy of motion . Î A car on the highway has kinetic energy. Î We have to remove this energy to stop it. Î The breaks of a car get HOT ! Î This is an example of turning one form of energy into another (thermal energy).

Physics 211: Lecture 9, Pg 5 Energy Conservation Energy Conservation z Energy cannot be destroyed or created. Î Just changed from one form to another. z We say energy is conserved energy is conserved ! Î True for any isolated system. Î i.e. when we put on the brakes, the kinetic energy of the car is turned into heat using friction in the brakes. The total energy of the “car-brakes-road-atmosphere” system is the same. Î The energy of the car “alone” is not conserved. .. » It is reduced by the braking. z Doing “ work work ” on an isolated system will change its “ energy energy ”... Returning Can Wilberforce
