- Slide 1
- Potential Energy And Conservative Forces
- Slide 2
- Two General Forces Conservative Non Conservative
- Slide 3
- Conservative Forces A force is conservative if the work it does on an object moving between two points is the same no matter the path the object takes between the points.
- Slide 4
- Conservative Forces Visual Example: Think of a diver climbing to the top of a 10 meter diving platform. The diver must do work against gravity in order to climb to the top of the platform. Once at the top, however, he can recover the work as kinetic energy by taking the dive.
- Slide 5
- Conservative Forces Visual Example Cont: His speed just before hitting the water will give him a kinetic energy equal to the work that he did against gravity when he climbed to the top of the platform.
- Slide 6
- Non-Conservative Forces A non-conservative force is generally dissipative. This release usually becomes heat or sound. Work done against a non-conservative force cannot easily be recovered.
- Slide 7
- Friction Friction is a non-conservative force. Energy is lost to friction in the form of heat and sound.
- Slide 8
- Gravity Gravity is a conservative force. Think of a swimmer diving off a diving board and another sliding down a frictionless slide of the same height. The work done by gravity on both swimmers is the same.
- Slide 9
- Conservative Force & Potential Energy Conservative forces have another useful property: The work they do can be recast as potential energy. Potential energy is a quantity that depends only on the beginning and end point of a path. Not the path taken.
- Slide 10
- What is Potential Energy Potential energy is the energy stored in an object.
- Slide 11
- Gravitational Potential Energy A hammer driving a nail into a wall does work and has kinetic energy.
- Slide 12
- Gravitational Potential Energy If I were holding a hammer in my hand, it would have potential energy. Because it has the Potential to fall from my hand and hit a nail, driving it into the floor.
- Slide 13
- Gravitational Potential Energy The gravitational potential energy is PE = m g h
- Slide 14
- Gravitational Potential Energy PE = m g h PE Potential Energy m Mass g Acceleration due to gravity h the height of the object
- Slide 15
- Gravitational Potential Energy Potential energy has units of Joules. PE = m g h kg (m/s 2 ) m kg m 2 /s 2 Which is a Joule
- Slide 16
- Gravitational Potential Energy When dealing with problems involving gravitational potential energy, it is important to choose a position at which to set energy equal to zero.
- Slide 17
- Gravitational Potential Energy This choice is completely arbitrary because the important quantity is the difference in potential energy, and this difference will be the same regardless of the choice of zero level. However, once this position is chosen, it must be fixed for the entire problem.
- Slide 18
- Work and PE Work equals the change in Potential Energy W = mgh f - mgh i
- Slide 19
- Example Richard wants to know how much potential energy his cat has when it climbs to the top of the tree near his house. The tree is 15 meters high and the cat has a mass of 5 kilograms. How much potential energy does the cat have?
- Slide 20
- Example A baby carriage is sitting at the top of a hill that is 41 m high. The carriage with the baby weighs 9 N. How much Potential Energy does the carriage have?
- Slide 21
- You Try: How much more potential energy does a 1.0 kg hammer have when it is on a shelf 1.2 m high than when it is on a shelf 0.90 m high? Six identical books, 4.0 cm thick and each with a mass of 0.80 kg, lie individually on a flat table. How much work would be needed to stack the books one on top of the other?
- Slide 22
- To Be Turned In Before You Leave A student has six textbooks, each with a thickness of 4.0 cm and a weight of 30 N. What is the minimum work the student would have to do to place all the books in a single vertical stack, starting with all the books on the surface of the table.
