Forms of Energy ! Mechanical ! Focus for now ! May be kinetic (associated with motion) or potential (associated with position) ! Chemical ! Electromagnetic ! Nuclear
Some Energy Considerations ! Energy can be transformed from one form to another ! Essential to the study of physics, chemistry, biology, geology, astronomy ! Can be used in place of Newton’s laws to solve certain problems more simply

Work ! Provides a link between force and energy ! The work, W , done by a constant force on an object is defined as the product of the component of the force along the direction of displacement and the magnitude of the displacement
Work, cont. ! ! F is the magnitude of the force ! Δ x is the magnitude of the object’s displacement ! θ is the angle between

Work, cont. ! This gives no information about ! the time it took for the displacement to occur ! the velocity or acceleration of the object ! Work is a scalar quantity
Units of Work ! SI ! Newton • meter = Joule ! N • m = J ! J = kg • m 2 / s 2 ! US Customary ! foot • pound ! ft • lb ! no special name

Concepts Decide for each case whether the work being done by the force shown is positive, negative, or zero. Δ x ~ F Δ x ~ F Δ x ~ F Δ x ~ F
More About Work ! The work done by a force is zero when the force is perpendicular to the displacement ! cos 90° = 0 ! If there are multiple forces acting on an object, the total work done is the algebraic sum of the amount of work done by each force

More About Work, cont. ! Work can be positive or negative ! Positive if the force and the displacement are in the same direction ! Negative if the force and the displacement are in the opposite direction
When Work is Zero ! Displacement is horizontal ! Force is vertical ! cos 90° = 0

Work Can Be Positive or Negative ! Work is positive when lifting the box ! Work would be negative if lowering the box ! The force would still be upward, but the displacement would be downward
Concepts 1. Thinking in terms of force, describe the motion of the car. 2. What is true in terms of work (energy)? Δ x ~ F ~ F drag w F n

Concepts 1. Thinking graphically, is the work done by each force shown positive, negative, or zero in the figure below? 2. Find the net force graphically. Is the work done by the net force positive, negative, or zero? 3. If we added up all the work done by the individual forces would it be the same as the net work? Δ x ~ F ~ F drag w F n
Work and Dissipative Forces ! Work can be done by friction ! The energy lost to friction by an object goes into heating both the object and its environment ! Some energy may be converted into sound ! For now, the phrase “Work done by friction” will denote the effect of the friction processes on mechanical energy alone

SV-Ch05-P05 A horizontal force of 150 N is used to push a 40.0Lkg packing crate a distance of 6.00 m on a rough horizontal surface. If the crate moves at constant speed, find (a) the work done by the 150LN force and (b) the coeﬃcient of kinetic friction between the crate and surface.

### 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
