- 1. Law of Conservation of Mechanical Energy
- 2. What is energy?
- 3. Energy (E) is … <ul><li>ability to do work </li></ul><ul><li>a scalar measurement </li></ul><ul><li>measured in Joules </li></ul>
- 4. There are two main types of energy: <ul><li>Potential </li></ul><ul><li>Kinetic </li></ul>
- 5. Kinetic Energy: <ul><li>Energy of Motion </li></ul>
- 6. Facts About Kinetic Energy <ul><li>anything with velocity has KE </li></ul><ul><li>It is directly proportional to mass and velocity </li></ul><ul><li>Equation: </li></ul>
- 7. Potential Energy <ul><li>There are two kinds of potential energy… </li></ul>
- 8. Gravitational Potential <ul><li>Energy due to an </li></ul><ul><li>object’s position in Earth’s </li></ul><ul><li>(or another planet’s) </li></ul><ul><li>gravitational field. </li></ul>
- 9. Basically, if you have height, you have Gravitational Potential Energy
- 10. Elastic Potential <ul><li>Energy stored in a stretched or compressed spring </li></ul>
- 11. Total Mechanical Energy <ul><li>Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy </li></ul>
- 12. Law of Conservation of Energy
- 13. In other words, energy cannot be created or destroyed… <ul><li>Unless work was done on the system, the total energy of the system does not change. </li></ul>
- 14. … it can, however, be converted between different types. For example, PE can be transferred to KE!
- 15. Work is being done against friction and gravity. <ul><li>input energy (chemical energy) > output energy (thermal energy) </li></ul><ul><li>energy is lost to friction </li></ul>
- 16. If there is no gain in internal energy and no work done against friction, Q=0
- 17. The body transfers the chemical energy which is released as kinetic energy of the ball. <ul><li>The input of energy is chemical energy from the ice cream. </li></ul>But the total energy remains the same! Example:
- 18. Energy Transfers
- 19. Roller Coasters Good examples of energy transfers
- 20. At point W, v = 0 and it’s at its highest point, so it only has gravitational potential energy.
- 21. Point X is at the lowest point and has no height, but is in motion so there is only kinetic energy.
- 22. At Y, the car has height and velocity. Therefore, it has both kinetic and potential energy.
- 23. Even though the energy is changing from potential to kinetic, the total energy is always the same.
- 24. Pendulums Another good example of an energy transfer
- 25. <ul><li>Maximum PE: Points 1 and 3 </li></ul><ul><li>This is where the pendulum has its greatest height. </li></ul>
- 26. <ul><li>Maximum KE: </li></ul><ul><li>Point 2 </li></ul><ul><li>This is where the pendulum has its maximum velocity. </li></ul>
- 27. <ul><li>From 1 to 2: </li></ul><ul><li>KE increases, PE decreases </li></ul><ul><li>From 2 to 3: </li></ul><ul><li>KE decreases, PE increases </li></ul>
- 28. Springs!
- 29. <ul><li>Neutral spring </li></ul>1 kg Vertical Spring and Mass 1 kg x Stretched spring
- 30. Vertical Spring and Mass 1 kg Has velocity --> KE Has height --> PE g The PE s is converted to PE g and KE
- 31. Vertical Spring and Mass 1 kg PE g 2 + PE s 2 Compressed spring --> PEs Has height --> PEg
- 32. PE g 2 > PE g 1 1 kg 1 kg KE +PE g 1 PE g 2 + PE s 2 A. B. A has more height --> more PE g
- 33. PE s 1 > PE s 2 1 kg PE g 2 + PE s 2 1 kg PE s 1 A. B. Total energy is always the same --> A has only PE s B has PE g and PE s
- 34. Horizontal Spring and Mass <ul><li>A: neutral spring. </li></ul><ul><li>B: Spring is stretched distance x. </li></ul>1 kg 1 kg x A. B. PE s
- 35. PE s is converted to KE <ul><li>Spring returns to neutral position </li></ul><ul><li>Has velocity </li></ul>1 kg
- 36. KE is converted to PE s <ul><li>A: Spring has KE </li></ul><ul><li>B: KE is converted to PE s as spring is compressed distance x. </li></ul>1 kg 1 kg x A. B.
- 37. How to Solve Energy Problems
- 38. A roller coaster, is pulled up to point A where it and its screaming occupants are released from rest. Assuming no friction, calculate the speed at points B , C and D . ( h a = 35 m, h d = 12 m, h c = 22 m) Problem:
- 39. We will find the velocity at point C and show you step by step how to find it. At the end of the presentation, you can solve for the other points in the problem and check your answers with ours.
- 40. Step 1: Write/Draw Knowns and Unknowns h a = 35 m h d = 12 m h c = 22 m V a = 0 m/s V b = ? V c = ? V d = ? m = / *mass is irrelevant because it cancels out in the equation
- 41. Step 2: Identify Types of Energy <ul><li>A: PE, because it is at rest and at its highest point </li></ul><ul><li>C: PE, because it has height and KE because it has velocity </li></ul>
- 42. Step 3: Select Proper Equations
- 43. Step 4: Write Equation <ul><li>Since no energy was added: </li></ul><ul><li>E before = E after </li></ul>
- 44. Step 4: Write Equation E a = E c
- 45. Remember the masses cancel out!
- 46. Step 5: Substitute and Solve
- 47. Now You Try! Solve for velocity at B and D.
- 48. Answers <ul><li>V b = 26.2 m/s </li></ul><ul><li>V d = 21.2 m/s </li></ul>
