For comparison, the Northridge earthquake of 1994, which killed 57 people and did 40 billion dollars of damage, released 22 times less energy. 1 Work: The Transfer of Mechanical Energy 43 Machines can increase force, but not work. 6). The tension in the left-hand rope is equal throughout, assuming negligible friction, so there are two forces pulling the pulley to the left, each equal to the original force exerted by the tractor on the rope. This doubled force is transmitted through the right-hand rope to the stump.

Bohl. 0 m, how much work do you do? What is the physical significance of this quantity of work? 0 m)(cos 35°) = 86 J . The form of energy being transferred is heat in the floor and the broom’s bristles. This comes from the chemical energy stored in your body. (The majority of the calories you burn are dissipated directly as heat inside your body rather than doing any work on the broom. ) (a) No. The pack is moving at constant velocity, so its kinetic energy is staying the same. It is only moving horizontally, so its gravitational potential energy is also staying the same.

The examples in this section are ones in which the force is varying, but is always along the same line as the motion, so F is the same as F||. Self-Check In which of the following examples would it be OK to calculate work using Fd, and in which ones would you have to use the area under the F-x graph? (a) A fishing boat cruises with a net dragging behind it. (b) A magnet leaps onto a refrigerator from a distance. (c) Earth’s gravity does work on an outward-bound space probe. compressed An important and straightforward example is the calculation of the work done by a spring that obeys Hooke’s law, F ≈ –k(x-xo) .
