Fcosθ does do work. Fsinθ does not do work. The component of F perpendicular to ∆x does no work. Work with a Variable Force F x Work = ∫ Fdx ∫ Fdx = Area under the graph of Force vs distance x F F = kx W = ∫ (kx)dx W = ½ kx 2 This work is stored as potential energy. The potential energy can then be released as kinetic energy. Work = F∆x This is true if F is constant. If F is not constant. F s F s = kx F S x Conservation of Energy Types of Energy KE = K = ½ mv 2 PE = U U g = mgh U S =  ½ kx 2 TE = Thermal Energy E = K + U + TE E’ = K’ + U’ + TE’ E’ = E K’ + U’ + TE’ = K + U + TE The unit of Work and Energy is the Joule (J). 1J = 1Nm Energy is defined as the ability to do work. Energy is a scalar.
