Solution for On-Line Homework 10 Interactions I Solution to On-Line Homework Problem 10.1() Problem: Potential Energy (choose the best answer): Select One of the Following: (a) Cannot be converted into kinetic energy. (b) Can be entirely converted to kinetic energy. (c-Answer) Must depend on the position of an iso- lated object. (d-Answer) Must depend on the con±guration of a system. (e-Answer) Both (b) and (d). Solution c. Can be entirely converted to kinetic energy. The whole idea of potential energy is it has the potential to be con- verted into other forms!

Unformatted text preview: energy? 1 Select One of the Following: (a-Answer) Dissipation is the conversion of energy from an ordered form to a disordered form. (b) Dissipation is the conversion of energy from a disordered form to an ordered form. (c) Dissipation is not related to the conversion of energy. (d) Dissipation is another word for rain. (e) Dissipation is somehow related to Toby. Solution Dissipation is the conversion of energy from an ordered form to a disordered form. In other words, it is the de-generation of energy into a state that cannot be readily recovered (say to kinetic energy). Heat and irreversible deformation are examples.
