Title: Work and Machines

Work and Machines
  • Work is the transfer of energy that occurs when
    a force makes an object move
  • For work to be done, a force must make something
  • ex pushing on something that doesnt move is
    not doing work

  • Two conditions have to be met to do work on an
  • 1. object has to move
  • 2. motion of the object must be in same
    direction as force applied
  • When work is done, a transfer of energy always
  • So Energy is also the ability to do work (not
    just the ability to cause change)

  • Calculating Work
  • Work force X distance
  • OR
  • W F X d
  • Units for work are Joules
  • (Practice Calculating Work)

Using Machines
  • Machines a device that makes doing work easier
  • Machines increase the force applied to an
  • object OR increase the distance over which a
    force can be applied
  • Machines can also change the direction of an
    applied force
  • Ex car jacks, ramps, wedges

Effort and Resistance Forces
  • Two forces are involved when a machine is used to
    do work
  • Effort force the force applied to the machine
  • Resistance force the force applied by the
    machine to overcome resistance
  • Ex when you pull a nail out w/a hammer, effort
    force is applied to the handle, resistance force
    is applied to the nail by the claw

  • Efficiency a measure of how much of the work
    put into a machine is changed into useful output
    work by the machine
  • High efficiency means less heat produced from
  • Efficiency W output/W input X 100
  • Friction causes output work to always be less
    than the input work
  • SO Efficiency of a real machine is always less
    than 100
