Physics 1D03 Example (massless pulleys, no friction) s = 2 m How much work is done on the rope by F p ? = (25N)(2m) How much work is done by the upward force on the ball? = (100N)(0.5m) 100 N

Physics 1D03 Then the Work-Energy Theorem says: The total work done by all external forces acting on a particle is equal to the increase in its kinetic energy. Kinetic Energy Definition: for a particle moving with speed v, the kinetic energy is K = ½ mv 2 (a SCALAR) Proof: from Newton’s Second Law, and the definition of Work.
Physics 1D03 Kinetic Energy is measured in joules (1J=1Nm). Kinetic energy is a scalar; the work-energy theorem is a scalar relation. This theorem is equivalent to Newton’s Second Law. In principle, either method can be used for any problem in particle dynamics.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
