______________________________________________________________________________________ ASD 2008/09 2/ 11 5.1 Definitions a) WORK : Work is done by a force acting on an object when the point of application of that force moves through some distance and the force has a component along the line of motion . The symbol is W. The unit is Newton Meter (Nm) or Joule (J) b) ENERGY : The ability to do work. c) KINETIC ENERGY : Energy associated with the motion of an object The symbol is K. The unit is J d) POTENTIAL ENERGY : Energy associated with the position or configuration of an object Example : Gravitational potential energy (U = mgh) & Elastic (spring) potential energy (U = 2 m kx 2 1 ). The symbol is U and the unit is J. 5.2 Work Done by a Constant Force Consider a particle that undergoes a displacement s along a straight line while acted on by a constant force F , which makes an angle θ with s as shown in the diagram The work W done by an agent exerting a constant force is the product of the component of the force in the direction of the displacement and the magnitude of the displacement of the force, i.e. Where F and s are the magnitudes of the force vector F and displacement vector s and θ is the angle between these vectors. W =
