Motion
• Definition
• The work W done by a constant force with an
x-component, Fx, in displacing an object by ?x
is equal to the x-component of the force times
the displacement

Table Problem Work Done by Gravity Near the
Surface of the Earth
• Consider an object of mass m near the surface
of the earth falling directly towards the center
of the earth. The gravitational force between the
object and the earth is nearly constant. Suppose
the object starts from an initial point that is a
distance y0 from the surface of the earth and
moves to a final point a distance yf from the
surface of the earth. How much work does the
gravitational force do on the object as it falls?

10
Work done by Non-Constant Force One Dimensional
Motion
• (Infinitesimal) work is a scalar
• Add up these scalar quantities to get the total
work as area under graph of Fx vs x

11
Concept Question Work due to Variable Force
• A particle starts from rest at x 0 and moves
to x L under the action of a variable force
F(x), which is shown in the figure. What is the
particle's kinetic energy at x L/2 and at x
L?
• (Fmax)(L/2), (Fmax)(L)
• (2) (Fmax)(L/4), 0
• (3) (Fmax)(L), 0
• (4) (Fmax)(L/4), (Fmax)(L/2)
• (5) (Fmax)(L/2), (Fmax)(L/4)

12
Table Problem Work Done by the Spring Force
• Connect one end of a spring of length l0 with
spring constant k to an object resting on a
smooth table and fix the other end of the spring
to a wall. Stretch the spring until it has length
l and release the object.
• How much work does the spring do on the object
as a function of x l - l0, the distance the
spring has been stretched or compressed?

13
Worked Example Work Done by Several Forces
• A block of mass m slides along a horizontal
table with speed v0. At x 0 it hits a spring
with spring constant k and begins to experience a
friction force. The coefficient of kinetic
friction is given by m. How far did the spring
compress when the block first momentarily comes
to rest?
•

14
Recall integration formula for acceleration with
respect to time
• The x-component of the acceleration of an object
• is the derivative of the x-component of the
velocity
• Therefore the integral of x-component of the
acceleration with respect to time, is the
x-component of the velocity

15
Integration formula for acceleration with respect
to displacement
• The integral of x-component of the acceleration
with respect to the displacement of an object, is
given by
• Multiply both sides by the mass of the object
giving integration formula

16
Work-Kinetic Energy Theorem One Dimensional Motion
• Substitute Newtons Second Law (in one dimension)
• in definition of work integral which then becomes
• Apply integration formula to get work-kinetic
energy theorem

Concept Question
• Two objects are pushed on a frictionless
surface from a starting line to a finish line
with equal constant forces. One object is four
times as massive as the other. Both objects are
initially at rest. Which of the following
statements is true when the objects reach the
finish line?
• The kinetic energies of the two objects are
equal.
• Object of mass 4m has the greater kinetic energy.
• Object of mass m has the greater kinetic energy.
• Not information is given to decide.

19
Worked Example Work-Energy Theorem for Inverse
Square Gravitational Force
• Consider a magnetic rail gun that shoots an
object of mass m radially away from the surface
of the earth (mass me). When the object leaves
the rail gun it is at a distance ri from the
center of the earth moving with speed vi . What
speed of the object as a function of distance
from the center of the earth?

20
Power
• The average power of an applied force is the rate
of doing work
• SI units of power Watts
• Instantaneous power

21
Work and the Dot Product
22
Dot Product
• A scalar quantity
• Magnitude
• The dot product can be positive, zero, or
negative
• Two types of projections the dot product is the
parallel component of one vector with respect to
the second vector times the magnitude of the
second vector

23

Kinetic Energy and Dot Product

• Change in kinetic energy

26
Work Done by a Constant Force
• Definition Work
• The work done by a constant force on
an object is equal to the component of the force
in the direction of the displacement times the
magnitude of the displacement
• Note that the component of the force in the
direction of the displacement can be positive,
zero, or negative so the work may be positive,
zero, or negative

27
Concept Question Work and Gravity 1
• A ball is given an initial horizontal velocity
and allowed to fall under the influence of
gravity near the surface of the earth, as shown
below. The work done by the force of gravity on
the ball is

(1) positive (2) zero (3) negative

29
Table Problem Work Constant Forces and Dot
Product
An object of mass m, starting from rest, slides
down an inclined plane of length s. The plane is
inclined by an angle of ? to the ground. The
coefficient of kinetic friction is µ.
• Use the dot product definition of work to
calculate the work done by the normal force, the
gravitational force, and the friction force as
the object displaces a distance s down the
inclined plane.
• For each force, is the work done by the force
positive or negative?
• What is the sum of the work done by the three
forces? Is this positive or negative?

30
Concept Question Work and inverse square gravity
• A comet is speeding along a hyperbolic orbit
toward the Sun. While the comet is moving away
from the Sun, the work done by the Sun on the
comet is

(1) positive (2) zero (3) negative
31
Work Done Along an Arbitrary Path
Work done by force for small displacement Work
done by force along path from A to B
32
Work-Energy Theorem in Three-Dimensions
As you will show in the problem set, the one
dimensional work-kinetic energy theorem
generalizes to three dimensions
33
Work Path Dependent Line Integral
Work done by force along path from A to B
In order to calculate the line integral, in
principle, requires a knowledge of the path.
However we will consider an important class of
forces in which the work line integral is
independent of the path and only depends on the
starting and end points
34
Conservative Forces
• Definition Conservative Force If the work done
by a force in moving an object from point A to
point B is independent of the path (1 or 2),
• then the force is called a conservative force
which we denote by . Then the work done only
depends on the location of the points A and B.

35
Example Gravitational Force
• Consider the motion of an object under the
influence of a gravitational force near the
surface of the earth
• The work done by gravity depends only on the
change in the vertical position

36
Potential Energy Difference
• Definition Potential Energy Difference between
the points A and B associated with a conservative
force is the negative of the work done by
the conservative force in moving the body along
any path connecting the points A and B.

Inverse Square Gravitational Force
• Consider an object of mass m1 moving towards
the sun (mass m2). Initially the object is at a
distance r0 from the center of the sun. The
object moves to a final distance rf from the
center of the sun. For the object-sun system,
what is the change in potential during this
motion?

Force
• Connect one end of a spring of length l0 with
spring constant k to an object resting on a
smooth table and fix the other end of the spring
to a wall. Stretch the spring until it has length
l and release the object. Consider the
object-spring as the system. When the spring
returns to its equilibrium length what is the
change in potential energy of the system?

42
Work-Energy Theorem Conservative Forces
• The work done by the force in moving an object
from A to B is equal to the change in kinetic
energy
• When the only forces acting on the object are
conservative forces
• then the change in potential energy is
• Therefore
