1 Name: Work-Energy Bar Charts Read from Lesson 2 of the Work, Energy and Power chapter at The Physics Classroom: MOP Connection: Work and Energy: sublevel 6 The work-energy relationship is the most important relationship of the unit. The work done by external forces (Wext) is related to the total mechanical energy of the initial (TMEi) and of the total energy of the final state (TMEf) of a system as follows: TMEi + Wext = TMEf Your goal should be to combine your understanding of kinetic energy, potential energy, and work with the above equation in order to analyze physical situations involving energy changes and transformations and to solve computational problems involving work and energy. One tool that will assist in the analysis of physical situations is a work-energy bar chart. A work-energy bar chart represents the amount of energy present in a system by means of a vertical bar. The length of a bar is representative of the amount of energy present; a longer bar representing a greater amount of energy. According to the work-energy theorem, the initial mechanical energy (kinetic and potential) plus the work done on the system by external forces equals the final mechanical energy (kinetic and potential). Consequently, the sum of the bar heights for any initial condition must equal the sum of the bar heights for the final condition. Complete the following work-energy bar charts based on the given statement. Then cross out or cancel any terms in the work-energy equation that are either zero or the same on each side. 1. A ball falls from the top of a pillar to the ground below. The initial state is the ball at rest at the top of the pillar and the final state is the ball just prior to striking the ground. Ignore Fair. 2. A car skids from a high speed to a stop with its brakes applied. The initial state is the car traveling at a high speed and the final state is the car at rest. The force of friction does work on the car, thus changing the total mechanical energy. The Physics Classroom, 2009 Page 11

2 3. A skier starts from rest on top of hill A and skis into the valley and back up onto hill B. The skier utilizes her poles to propel herself across the snow, thus doing work to change her total mechanical energy. The initial state is on top of hill A and the final state is on top of hill B. Ignore frictional forces. 4. A Hot Wheels car starts from rest on top of an inclined plane and rolls down the incline through a loop and along a horizontal surface. The initial state is the car at rest on top of the hill and the final state is the car in motion at the bottom of the hill. Friction and air resistance have a significant effect on the car. 5. A moving cross-country skier skis from the top of a hill down into a valley and up a second smaller hill. The initial state is the skier in motion on top of the first hill and the final state is the skier in motion on top the second hill. He uses his poles to propel himself. Ignore the effect of friction and air resistance. 6. Ben Laborin applies a force to push a crate from the bottom of an inclined plane to the top at a constant speed. The initial state is the crate in motion at the bottom of the hill and the final state is the crate in motion at the top of the hill. Ignore frictional effects. The Physics Classroom, 2009 Page 12

3 Name: Energy Concepts Read from Lesson 2 of the Work, Energy and Power chapter at The Physics Classroom: MOP Connection: Work and Energy: sublevel 7, 8, 9 and Consider the falling motion of the ball in the following two frictionless situations. For each situation, indicate the forces doing work upon the ball. Indicate whether the energy of the ball is conserved and explain why. Finally, simplify the work-energy equation and use it to find the kinetic energy and the velocity of the 2-kg ball just prior to striking the ground. Forces doing work? Forces doing work? TME Conserved: Yes or No? Explanation: TME Conserved: Yes or No? Explanation: 2. Use the work-energy relationship to fill in the blanks for the following system (m=2 kg). Neglect frictional forces. Finally, darken in the bars of the bar chart in order to demonstrate the amount of kinetic energy (KE), potential energy (PE) and total mechanical energy (TME). The Physics Classroom, 2009 Page 13

Five positions in the trajectory of the dart are marked and labeled in the diagram at the right. For each of the five positions and for position Z, fill in the workenergy bar chart in the space below. Z: position of dart when springs are compressed. A: position of dart after release from springs. 4. A 2-kg ball moving at 2 m/s is rolling towards an inclined plane. It eventually rolls up the hill to a position near the top where it momentarily stops prior to rolling back down he incline. Assume negligible friction and air resistance. Construct a energy bar chart for the ball. Simplify the equation below by canceling terms that are either zero or constant. Then use the equation to determine the height to which the ball rises along the incline before stopping. 1 2 m v i 2 + m g hi + F d cos Θ = 1 2 m v f 2 + m g hf 5. Three identical balls approach three different "frictionless" hills with a speed of 2 m/s. In which case - A, B, or C, (or a tie) - will the ball roll the highest? Explain your answer. The Physics Classroom, 2009 Page 14

5 Name: 6. Fill in the blanks in the following sentence: An object starts from rest with a potential energy of 600 J and free-falls towards the ground. After it has fallen to a height of one-fourth of its original height, its total mechanical energy is J, its potential energy is J, and its kinetic energy is J. Consider the diagram at the right in answering the next three questions. Five locations along a roller coaster track are shown. Assume that there are negligible friction and air resistance forces acting upon the coaster car. 7. Rank the five locations in order of increasing TME (smallest to largest TME). Use < and or = signs between the blanks. 8. Rank the five locations in order of increasing PE (smallest to largest PE). Use < and or = signs between the blanks. 9. Rank the five locations in order of increasing KE (smallest to largest KE). Use < and or = signs between the blanks. 10. Use the law of conservation of energy (assume no friction nor air resistance) to determine the kinetic and potential energy at the various marked positions along the roller coaster track below. Finally, fill in the bars of the bar charts for positions A, B, C, D, and E. The Physics Classroom, 2009 Page 15

6 11. Use the law of conservation of energy (assume no friction) to fill in the blanks at the various marked positions for a 1000-kg roller coaster car. 12. In a physics lab, a 3.0-kg cart was pulled at a constant speed along an inclined plane (with a force parallel to the plane) to a height of m. The angle of incline was altered in each consecutive trial. It was found that each angle required the same amount of work to elevate the cart to the same height. Use your understanding of work, energy and dynamics to fill in the following table. (HINT: F app = F parallel = m*g*sin Θ.)
