On screen: Heading: Work done by a conservative force C For path AB, F h s F For path BC, Total work done along ABC, . F B x . . For path AC,

Therefore, work is path independent and also independent of the slope of the inclined plane.

Voiceover:

We know that in the case of one dimensional displacement, a force is always conservative if it is a function of position only. So, the very first common question arises here, what is meant by a conservative force? A conservative force means a force which conserves energy. That is it always keeps the total energy as constant. There will be no loss in energy. Moreover, a conservative force has two important properties: A force is conservative if the work done on a particle moving between any two points is independent of the path taken by the particle. The work done by a conservative force on a particle moving through any closed path is zero.

In the figure shown here, we shift a body in equilibrium from A to C in a gravitational field via path AC or ABC, the work done by the force F for both paths will be same and equal to mgh.

Scene 13
On screen: Heading: Work-Kinetic Energy Theorem

If we consider a system in which a constant force acts over a displacement and does work, then equation of energy will beOr, This relation is known as work-energy theorem.

Voiceover: Let us now think about kinetic energy and work-kinetic theorem. What is the idea behind this concept? Ok first of all, recall the newton second law. It states that force equals mass times acceleration. But, force is a vector whereas work and energy are scalars. Thus, it is easier to solve problems using energy consideration instead of using newtons law. So, when work is done on a system, there may be changes in the potential and kinetic energies of the system. If we consider a system in which a constant force acts over a displacement and does work, then equation of energy will beOr, This relation is known as work-kinetic energy theorem.

On screen: Proof Work-Kinetic Energy Theorem

We know that

## and so work can be written as:

In one-dimensional motion,

v v v2 v v

## Voiceover: We know that and so work can be written as:

where m is taken outside the integral because it is a constant. Let us consider one-dimensional motion, and then work can be written as:

## Now acceleration is defined as:

Now, we can substitute the value of a in the above equation of work done.

Or,
v

v v2 v v

Or, Therefore,

## i.e. power is equal to scalar product of force with velocity.

Voiceover: By definition, work done by a force does not depend on the time i.e. work is time-independent. The time rate of doing work is defined as power and is given by:

P instantaneous =

dW W and P . average = dt t
dW F ds F v dt dt

Power Area under the power-time curve gives the work done as which means: = area under curve. d t Time

Voiceover: Area under the power-time curve gives the work done as P dW dt which means :

## W Pdt = area under P t curve.
