Title: Work

1
Work
• The displacement of an object in a parallel
direction to an applied force.

F
d
WForce x displacement
WFd
The force and displacement must be in parallel
directions.
Work is measured in Joules (J) which comes from a
Newton-meter (Nm).
The fundamental units that make up a Joule are
kgm2/s2
Work is a scalar quantity.

No work is accomplished by force F in this

Work
• Also defined as a transfer of energy.
• Whenever work is accomplished, energy of some
type is transferred.

Work is positive when the force and
displacement are in the same direction.
F
d
F
Work is negative when the force and displacement
are in opposite directions.
d
• Positive work
• Work is accomplished by the force.
• Energy in transferred into the system
• Negative work
• Work is accomplished on the force.
• Energy is transferred out of the system

7
• Work is the area under a force-displacement graph.

8
Power
• Power is the rate of doing work.
• Power is the rate of energy transfer.
• Power Work/time ? P W/t
• Power (F)(d)/t F(d/t)
• Power Force x velocity ? PFv
• v average velocity (vfvi)/2
• P ? (N)(m)/s (J)/(s)(kgm2/s3) Watt
• Power is measured in Watts, abbreviated W.
• 1 horsepower 746 Watts (1 hp 746 W)
