- acceleration at any instant is caused by forces Energy approach: Net work = increase in kinetic energy - equivalent to Newtons dynamics - scalars, not vectors - compares energies before and after Physics 1D03 - Lecture 19 B Math Review The scalar product or dot product of two vectors gives a scalar result: A vector vector = scalar

To prove this, expand A B using the laws of arithmetic (distributive, commutative), and notice that i j j k i k 0 since, i, j, k are mutually perpendicular and i i j j k k 1 since they are unit vectors Physics 1D03 - Lecture 19 Work F F FII

s Work by a constant force F during a displacement s: Work = (component of F parallel to motion) x (distance) We can also write this as: Work = F s = Fscos() Units : N m = joule (J) This is the scalar product, or dot product. Work is a scalar. If work is done on a system, W is positive (eg: lifting an object). If work is done by a system, W is negative (eg: object falling) Physics 1D03 - Lecture 19 MATH QUIZ A constant force F (1i 2 j 3k ) N is applied to an

We cant just multiply force times distance because the force changes during the motion. Our definition of work is not complete. Varying force: split displacement into short segments over which F is nearly constant. F(x)

xi xf x For each small displacement x, the work done is approximately F(x) x, which is the area of the rectangle. F x Physics 1D03 - Lecture 19 We get the total work by adding up the work done in all the small steps. As we let x become small, this becomes the area under the curve, and the sum becomes an integral. F(x) F(x)

The extra work to move it an additional small distance x is, approximately, W F(x) x. Rearrange to get

W F ( x) x In the limit as x goes to zero, F ( x) dW dx Physics 1D03 - Lecture 19 Example: An Ideal Spring. Hookes Law: The tension in a spring is proportional to the distance stretched. or, |F| = k|s| The spring constant k has units of N/m Directions: The force exerted by the spring when it is

stretched in the +x direction is opposite the direction of the stretch (it is a restoring force): F = -kx Physics 1D03 - Lecture 19 Example: Work by a Spring Fs xi xf Find a function W(x) so that Fskx dW Fs ( x) dx
