1 Energy  Key Vocabulary Term Potential Energy Kinetic Energy Joules Gravity Definition The energy an object possesses due to its position. PE = mgh The energy an object possesses when it is in motion. KE = ½mv 2 The units used to measure energy and work output The acceleration due to gravity is always constant. The value is 10 m/s 2. Conservation of Energy The energy in a closed system will remain constant throughout. (i.e. the potential energy at the top of a hill will equal the kinetic energy at the bottom when friction is ignored.) 1 P a g e
2 Potential Energy E p = mgh Mass Gravity Height if you double the mass then the PE will Double 10 m/s 2 the value for gravity is Double if you double the height then the PE will Where is the Potential energy the least in the picture below? The person on the swing in the middle because they have the least height. Identify two ways you could increase the potential energy. 1. Increase the mass 2. Increase the height 2 P a g e
3 Kinetic Energy Mass Velocity if you double the mass then the KE will Double Quadruple if you double the velocity then the KE will E k = ½ mv 2 Symbols: E k means Kinetic Energy Units: Joules m means mass Units: kilograms v means velocity Units: m/s If I want to find: Then I need to know: My formula will be: My unit will be: mass & velocity ½ mv 2 Joules Mass velocity & kinetic energy m=2e k /v 2 kg Velocity mass & kinetic energy v= 2E k /m m/s 3 P a g e
4 Energy is one of the fundamental quantities in our universe. The workings of the universe can be viewed from the perspective of energy flowing from one place to another and changing back and forth from one form to another. Examples of Energy 1. A gust of wind. 2. Batteries. 3. A ball at rest on top of a hill. 4. Thermal Energy 5. Kinetic Energy 6. Electrical Energy Units of Energy The Joule is the energy needed to push with a force of one newton over a distance of one meter. Work Work is the transfer of energy that results from applying a force over a distance. Can you create a triangle to help you use this formula? An object that has Energy is able to do work; without energy, it is impossible to do work. In fact, one way to think about energy is as stored work. Sample Problems A person travels 30 meters dragging a suitcase using 100 N of force. How much work is done? d=30 m W = Fd F=100 N W = 100 N 30 m = 3,000 J 1. A car uses 200 N of force from the engine going 1000 meters. How much work is done? (200,000 J) 2. A person travels 30 meters walks with a 100 N suitcase in their arms. How much work is done? (0 J) Potential Energy 4 P a g e
5 Potential Energy: energy due to position. Systems or objects with potential energy are able to exert forces (exchange energy) as they change to other arrangements. The term Gravitational Potential Energy describes the energy of an elevated object. Unless otherwise stated, you can assume potential energy means gravitational potential energy (GPE). (We will often abbreviate it as PE) The units of energy are the same as the units for Work. Sample Problems A spoon is raised 0.2 m above a table. If the spoon has a mass of 0.1 kg, what is the gravitational potential energy associated with the spoon relative to the surface of the table? h=0.2 m E p =mgh m=0.1 kg = 0.1 kg x 10 m/s 2 x 0.2 m = 0.2 Joules g=10 m/s 2 Sean stands on the roof of the school holding his egg drop project, 12 m above the ground. If his device has a mass of 0.5 kg, calculate the potential energy of his device. h=12 m E p =mgh m=0.5 kg = 0.5 kg x 10 m/s 2 x 12 m = 60 Joules g=10 m/s 2 Kinetic Energy Energy of motion is called kinetic energy. Objects that are moving also have the ability to cause change. can easily be transformed into potential energy. The kinetic energy of a basketball tossed upward converts into potential energy as the height increases and therefore loses kinetic energy. The amount of kinetic energy an object has equals the amount of work the object can do by exerting force as it stops. is related to both an object s mass and its speed. 5 P a g e
6 increases as the square of the speed. This means that if you go twice as fast, your energy increases by four times (2 2 = 4). If your speed is three times as fast, your energy is nine times bigger (3 2 = 9). Sample Problems 1. Calculate the kinetic energy of Mr. Beatty s 4 kilogram dog Dakota running at 5 m/s. m= 4 kg E k = ½ mv 2 v = 5 m/s = ½ 4 kg x (5 m/s) 2 = 50 Joules 2. What is the kinetic energy of a 2000 kg race car that is traveling at 45 m/s? m= 2000 kg E k = ½ mv 2 v= 45 m/s =½ (2000) kg x (45 m/s) 2 = 2,025,000 Joules 6 P a g e
7 Conservation of Energy The idea that energy converts from one form into another without a change in the total amount is called the law of conservation of energy. The law states that energy can never be created nor destroyed just converted from one form into another. **The law of conservation of energy is one of the most important laws in physics.** (It applies to not only kinetic and potential energy, but to all forms of energy) THE WAY UP As the ball in picture moves upward, it slows down and loses kinetic energy. Eventually it reaches a point where all the kinetic energy has been converted to potential energy. The ball has moved as high as it will go and its upward speed has been reduced to zero. THE WAY DOWN As the ball falls, its speed increases and its height decreases. The potential energy decreases as it converts into kinetic energy. Sample Problems A 2 kg car moving with a speed of 2 m/sec starts up a hill. How high does the car roll before it stops? KE in the beginning = PE at the end E k = E p ½ mv 2 = mgh ½ (2) kg x (2 m/s) 2 = 2 kg x 10 m/s 2 x??? 4 Joules = 20 x??? Height = 0.2 meters 7 P a g e
8 Class Work 1. Theresa s 5.45 kg dog, Mr. Muggles is napping on top of 2 meter high couch. What is the potential energy of Mr. Muggles? Potential energy m=5.45 kg h=2m g=10 m/s 2 PE=mgh 109 Joules 2. Garfield (mass = 10.5 kg) is sleeping on top of the 3 meter high couch. What is Garfield s potential energy? Potential energy m=10.5 kg h=3 m g=10 m/s 2 PE=mgh 315 Joules 3. A 200 kg pig is standing on top of a 40 meter high muddy hill. What is the pig s potential energy? Potential energy m=200 kg h=40 m g=10 m/s 2 PE=mgh 80,000 Joules 4. Tyler (mass=50kg) is riding in a gokart down maple avenue. a. What is Tyler s kinetic energy if he travels at 2 m/s? m=50 kg v= 2 m/s 100 Joules b. What is Tyler s kinetic energy if he travels at 4 m/s? m=50 kg v= 4 m/s 400 Joules 8 P a g e
9 Group Work 1. Alan, a hot dog vendor, is selling hot dogs on top of a hill (height = 20 m) outside of Petco Park in San Diego California. While talking to a customer, Alan s hot dog cart (m=35 kg) starts to roll down the hill. a. What is the kinetic energy of the cart as it rolls down the hill with a velocity of 3.25 m/s? m=35 kg KE=1/2 mv v= 3.25 m/s Joules b. What is the potential energy at the top of the hill? Potential energy m=35 kg h=20m g=10 m/s 2 PE=mgh 7,000 Joules mass = 35 kg 2. True or False: If the speed of an object doubles, the kinetic energy of the object doubles. False, the kinetic energy would quadruple. 3. At Six Flags there is a 625kg roller coaster car moving at m/s. a. Determine the kinetic energy of the car. m=625 kg v = m/s 1,050, Joules b. If the velocity of the coaster were to double to m/s what would its new Kinetic Energy be? m=625 kg v = m/s 4,200, Joules 4. Mister Diwater, the former platform diver for the Ringling Brother's Circus, had a mass of 70 kg.

In 1994, Leroy Burrell of the United States set what was then a new world record for the men s 100 m run. He ran the 100 m distance with an average speed of 10.2 m/s. Assuming that he ran with constant speed, and his mass was 65kg, what was Burrell s kinetic energy? m=65 kg v= 10.2 m/s J 3. The fastest helicopter, the Westland Lynx, has a top speed of 111 m/s.

13 Name: Period: Date: The Snickers Bar Research Question How many times must I climb the stairs to use the stored energy of a snickers bar? Introduction Introduction: In class we will be discussing work and energy. Energy is the ability to do work. Released energy is called kinetic energy while stored energy is called potential energy. The foods we eat contain stored energy. This energy is in chemical form and is released when we digest the food. The basic unit of food energy is measured in calories. All calories are not equal. There are calories and there are Calories. Calories with the capital C are actually kilocalories and are called large Calories. One Calorie actually equals 1000 calories! The caloric content of food is measured in Calories. Purpose In this activity you will be investigating how much chemical energy is in the food that you eat. Do I really want to eat a Snickers? 1) Your weight in pounds must be converted into Newtons. This is accomplished by multiplying your weight in pounds using the conversion factor 4.45N/pound. Your weight (F g ) in Newtons = Your weight (F g ) in Pounds x 4.45N/pounds = ( pounds) (4.45 N/pound) 2) What was the work done by your legs getting you up the steps? Work Done = Your Weight (N) x 4.16 meters = x 4.16 = J 3) Convert the stored energy in a snickers bar (266 calories) from calories to Joules. 1 calorie = 4186 Joules 266 calories x 4186 Joules = Joules 4) Calculate the number of times you would have to climb the steps to expend the amount of energy stored in a Snickers bar. Joules (joules of energy from step #3) / (work done in step #2) 13 P a g e
