Unformatted text preview: 10/6/09 Week 6: Work and Kinetic Energy The first midterm exam is THIS FRIDAY. It covers chapters 1-5 PDF slides will be posted 10/6/09 Why did we worry about the dot product? Definition: Work W F s r r An object has a constant force acting on it. F r The object undergoes the displacement (no reference to any other movement details!) s r W F s r r The work done is If : 10/6/09 W F s r r Units: Newton- meters 1 Joule = 1 Newton- meter 10/6/09 The simplest case: = 10/6/09 Pick up something heavy mg r F r 1 s r The work done by is 1 W F s = r r 1 W Fs = ( 29 1 cos 0 o W Fs = F r Whats the work done by ? mg r ( 29 1 cos 180 o W mgs = 1 W mgs = - Notice: if a = F mg = the n 10/6/09 Pick up something heavy mg r F r 1 s r Whats the work done by the net force ? net F r net F = r net W = 10/6/09 Now move it horizontally mg r F r 2 s r 2 W F s = r r W = ( 29 2 cos 90 o W Fs = The work done by is F r Whats the work done by ? mg r ( 29 1 cos 90 o W mgs = W = 10/6/09 W F s r r 10/6/09 The next standard example: something being dragged with a constant force m Example 6.2 10/6/09 Free-body diagram mg fr F N F x y F 20 m 14,700 N 5000 N 36.9 3500 N o fr s w mg F F = = = = = = s r Find work done by each force & total 10/6/09 Free-body diagram mg fr F N F x y F Consider each force in turn s r F r s r 1 W F s = r r 1 cos W Fs = ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 1 5000 N 20 m cos 36.9 o W = 80,000 J 10/6/09 Free-body diagram mg fr F N F x y F Consider each force in turn s r s r 2 W mg s = r r ( 29 2 cos 90 o W mgs = 2 0 J W = mg r 10/6/09 Free-body diagram mg fr F N F x y F Consider each force in turn s r s r 3 fr W F s = r r ( 29 3 cos 180 o fr W F s = ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 3 3500 N 20 m 1 W =- fr F r 70,000 J = - 10/6/09 Free-body diagram mg fr F N F x y F Consider each force in turn s r s r 4 N W F s = r r ( 29 4 cos 90 o N W F s = 4 0 J W = N F 10/6/09 So, the total work done is: 1 2 3 4 tot W W W W W = + + + 80,000 J + 0 J 70,000 J + 0 J tot W =- 10,000 J tot W = Alternativel y, We can find the work done by the net force 10/6/09 Free-body diagram mg fr F N F x y F 20 m 14,700 N 5000 N 36.9 3500 N o fr s w mg F F = = = = = = x componen t , cos net x fr F F F = - ( 29 ( 29 , 5000 cos 36.9 3500 N o net x F N = - , 500 N net x F y componen t , 0 N net y F = 10/6/09 , 500 N net x F s r net F r ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 500 N 20 m cos 0 o tot net W F s = = r r 10,000 J tot W = 10/6/09 So what?...
