Work and Energy Today: new concept energy Want to relate forces acting on objects to changes in kinetic energy Reason: significant shortcut to many problems Energy is (one of) the most important and fundamental concepts in physics

Relating internal changes to external changes Convenient to scale by mass: F Change in “kinetic energy”= Work done on object Units: 1 Joule = 1 Newton x Meter

Work in 3D v a Does speed change?

Work in 3D v a Does speed change? No: tangential accel changes speed -- radial accel just changes direction A force perpendicular to direction of motion does not change speed: does not change kinetic energy

Work in 3D Define: Work = component of of force along displacement times displacement Reason: This gives change in “kinetic energy”

Definition of Work When a constant force F acts on a particle that undergoes a straight-line displacement s , the work done by the force on the particle is defined as Units: 1 Joule = 1 Newton x Meter
