Unformatted text preview: 1 Physics 1D03 - Lecture 19 Work and Energy Work and Energy a m F r r = Energy approach : Net work = increase in kinetic energy- acceleration at any instant is caused by forces- equivalent to Newtons dynamics- scalars, not vectors - compares energies before and after Newtons approach: Work : Serway 7.17.4 Practice: Chapter 7, Problems 1, 5, 7, 11, 13 Physics 1D03 - Lecture 19 system external environment heat flow mechanical work etc. Energy is conserved. Energy must flow into (or out of) a system from the outside universe by various processes. Mechanical work is one way of transferring energy. 2 Physics 1D03 - Lecture 19 Work Work by a constant force F during a displacement s : s r II F F r F r Units : N m = joule (J) Work = (component of F parallel to motion) x (distance) We can also write this as This is the scalar product, or dot product. Work is a scalar ....
