Power
The rate at which work is done by a force is power.

Average power is work W done in time t
W
Pave =

Crate of Cheese
VERY S
V SIMILAR
TO HW # 6

## An initially stationary crate of cheese (mass m) is pulled via a cable a

distance d up a frictionless ramp of angle where it stops.
(a) How much work WN is done on the crate by the Normal during the
lift?
(b) How much work Wg is done on the crate by the gravitational force
during the lift?
(c) How much work WT is done on the crate by the Tension during the
lift?
((d)) If the speed
p of the moving
g crate were increased,, how would the above
answers change? What about the power?
Chapter 7: What happens to the KE of when work is done on it.
[ KE: energy of motion W: energy transfer via force ]
Chapter 8: Potential energy ??

Conservative vs non
non-
-conservative forces
Can you get back what you put in? Win = -Wout
What happens when you reverse time?
Net work done by a conservative force on a object moving around every
closed path is zero.

## Conservative forces Non-conservative forces

- gravitational
it ti l force
f - kinetic frictional force
- spring force (noise, heat,)
Potential energy: Energy U which describes the configuration (or spatial arrangement)
of a system of objects that exert conservative forces on each other. Its the stored
energy in system.

## U = W You can always

zero (reference value)

Elastic Potential energy: [~associated with the state of compression/tension
of elastic object]

Dont forget
Work done by force (general): W = F ( x ) dx = F d

## Potential energy (if conservative force): W = U

Mechanical energy:
E mech = KE + U
Only conservative forces (gravity & spring) cause energy transfer (work)
Wnet = KE Sec. 7- 3
W = U Sec. 8-1
Isolated system: Assuming only internal forces (no external forces yet - Sec. 8.6)

How to solved these problems

## My preference is to always use Mechanical Energy

E mec ( ffinal)) = Emec ((initial))
K f + U f = K i + Ui

## When Friction is present, it always removes energy,

so E(final) is less the E(init
E(initioa
ioal)
E mec ( final ) = Emec (initial ) Energy removed by work of friction
K f + U f = K i + U i Ff d

Always
y think about the pproblem and the signs!!
