What Are Work And Energy ?

Work

• When the force acts on an object or body and the object or body moves or shows displacement, then the force has done some work on the object or body.

• Mathematical formula: W = F × S or Work done = Force × Displacement

• If the displacement is zero, then work done will also be zero, W = 0.

• If work done is in the direction of force, then W = F × S.

• If work done is in the direction opposite to the force, then W = –F × S.

• Work done has only magnitude but no direction (scalar quantity)

• SI unit = Joule.

• 1 Joule = 1 Newton × 1 meter

• 1 Joule work is said to be done when 1 Newton force is applied on an object and it shows the displacemnt by 1 meter.

Energy

• Capacity of a body to do work.

• SI unit: Joule

Various Forms of Energy

Potential Energy (PE)

• Energy possessed by an object by virtue of its position/configuration

  • Gravitational potential Energy: Work done in raising an object from the ground to a point above the ground against gravity EP = mgh

where m = mass of object

g = gravity

h = height of object

• Unit: Joule

Kinetic Energy

• Energy possessed by an object or body by virtue of its motion.

• KE (EK) =(1/2)mv2

where m = mass of object or body

v = speed of object or body

• KE of an object increases with its speed.

Law of Conservation of Energy

Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed, it can only be transformed from one form to another.

• Sum of the kinetic and potential energies of an object is called its mechanical energy.

Total Energy (Before transformation) = Total Energy (After transformation)

Commercial Unit of Energy

• Kilowatt hour (KWh)

• Energy used in 1 hour at the rate of 1KW is called 1KWh

• 1 KWh = 3.6 × 106 J

• 1 Unit = 1 KWh

Power

• Rate of doing work

• Power =(Work/Time)  ∴ P =(W/T)

• SI Unit = Watt =(Joules/Second) ⇒ 1 Kilowatt = 1000 Watts; 1 Kilowatt = 1000 J/s
