1 WORKSHEET: KINETIC AND POTENTIAL ENERGY PROBLEMS 1. Stored energy or energy due to position is known as Potential energy. 2. The formula for calculating potential energy is mgh. 3. The three factors that determine the amount of potential energy in an object are mass, gravitational acceleration, and height of an object. 4. Potential energy is measured in units of joules(j). 5. Mass must be measured in units of kg. 6. Gravitational pull must be measured in units of m/s Height must be measured in units of m. 8. Calculate the potential energy of a rock with a mass of 55 kg while sitting on a cliff that is 27 m high. In this problem, m = 55kg and h = 27m. G or gravitational acceleration is always 9.8 m/ s 2. So, PE = 55kg 9.8 m/s 2 27m = J J 9. What distance is a book from the floor if the book contains 196 Joules of potential energy and has a mass of 5 kg? In this problem, m = 5kg and PE = 196 J.

Energy of motion is known as Kinetic energy. 12. The formula for calculating kinetic energy is 1/2mv The two factors that determine the amount of kinetic energy in an object are mass and velocity. 14.

7 26 kg 21. An object with a mass of 20 kg and potential energy of 584 J is what distance above the ground? In this problem, m= 20 kg and PE = 584 J. G or gravitational acceleration is always 9.8 m/s 2. So, 584 J = 20 kg 9.8 m/s 2 xm, x = 2.98m 2.98m Work Write the equation and units for work: Equation:, unit is joules(j). 1. A weight lifter lifts a set of weights a vertical distance of 2 m. If a constant net force of 350 N is exerted on the weights, what is the net work done on the weights? In this problem, f = 350 N and d = 2m. So, W = 350 N 2m = 700 J 700 J 2. A shopper in a supermarket pushes a cart with a force of 35 N directed at an angle of 25 degrees downward from the horizontal. Find the work done by the shopper on the cart as the shopper moves along a 50 m length of aisle.

8 3. If 2 J of work is done in raising a 180 g apple, how far is it lifted? In this problem, W = 2 J. Because F = mg, F = 0.18 kg 9.8 = N So, 2 J = N xm, x = 1.13 m 1.13 m 4.
