Lecture 9 Purdue University, Physics 220 4 Work by Constant Force Only component of force parallel to direction of motion does work! W = F r cos θ F θ r F W F > 0: 0< θ < 90 : cos( θ ) > 0 r F W F = 0: θ =90 : cos( θ ) =0 r F W F < 0: 90< θ < 270 : cos( θ ) < 0 r F W > 0: 0< θ < 90 : cos( θ ) > 0

Lecture 9 Purdue University, Physics 220 6 Work by Constant Force Example: You pull a 30 N chest 5 meters across the floor at a constant speed by applying a force of 50 N at an angle of 30 degrees. How much work is done by the 50 N force? 30 50 N W = T x cos θ = (50 Ν 29 (5 m ) cos (30) = 217 Joules T mg N f

Lecture 9 Purdue University, Physics 220 7 Question You are towing a car up a hill with constant velocity . The work done on the car by the normal force is: A) positive B) negative C) zero T W N V Normal force is perpendicular to direction of displacement,  so work is zero.
