9/28/2009 2 Work: The amount of energy transferred by a force acting through a displacement . “Work” in physics is very different from its everyday meaning If the crate does NOT move, the girl does NO work to the crate! - no matter how hard she pulls the crate. A truck driver does no “mechanical work” even if he drives for several hours: F x = 0 x F W SI unit: Joule (J) 1 J = 1 Newton•meter What happens if the force is not in the same direction with the displacement? This poor man does no work to the books if he stands still . x F x F W x ) cos( 0 x 0 W You carry a bucket of water, walking with a constant velocity horizontally 0 0 ) cos( W F F x Can be positive, negative , or zero

The block moves along the x-direction through displacement of 5 m. What is the work done by the force? What is the work done by the force if it is along the x-direction? x F x F W x ) cos( o 30 ) 30 cos( o x F F F J 433 m 5 N 6 . 86 x F W x ) cos( F F x x N 6 . 86 866 . 0 100 F x J 500 m 5 N 100 x F W
