Work, Power & Energy
Let’s Begin!
Introduction What’s the skier’s speed at the bottom ?
We can solve this problem by applying
Newton’s second law to find the skier’s
constant acceleration and the speed.

θ
Introduction
Now, Here the Slope is Continuously Changing and so the
Acceleration, So Solving for the details of the Skier’s
Motion is Comparatively Difficult.
H
Work - Work is said to be done by a force when the point of application of force is
displaced under the influence of the force.

## Work Done by a Constant Force

A force is said to be constant when its
magnitude as well as direction is constant.
Let a constant force F, applied on the
body,produces a displacement S is inclined to
F at an angle θ.

θ

s
Work
Let us resolve force F along the displacement s and perpendicular to it. So,
work is the product of the component of force in the direction of
displacement and the magnitude of the displacement.

Hence work will be given by dot product of force & displacement vector.

Positive, Negative & ZERO Work Done
Positive Work
The Work is said to be Positive if the Angle between Force and Displacement
is Acute (θ <900) because cosθ=+ve Positive Work Speeds up the body.

S F

θ s
When a load is lifted up then the lifting force and displacement
act in the same direction So,
Work done by lifting force is Positive.
Negative Work
The work is said to be Negative if the angle between force and displacement is
obtuse (900 < θ ≤ 1800) because cosθ =–ve. Negative work slows down the
body.

Zero Work
Work done by a force is ZERO if the body suffers no displacement on the
application of force i.e. S = 0
At every point on the circular path, the centripetal force and
displacement are mutually perpendicular. So, the work done
by the centripetal force is ZERO.

Example Figure shows 4 situations in which a force acts on a box while the
box slides rightward a distance ‘d’ across a frictionless floor. The
magnitude of the forces are identical, their orientations are as shown.
Rank the situations according to the work done on the box during the
displacement, from most positive to most negative.

Example A small block of mass m is kept on a rough inclined surface of

a uniform velocity ‘v’ and the block does not slide on the
wedge. The work done by the force of friction on the block in
time t will be

As block is at rest w.r.t. incline
Resolving forces along and perpendicular to incline
⇒ fs = mg sin θ θ mg
Also N = mg cos θ
In time t displacement s = vt
Vertically downwards fs

1800 – (900 – θ)

## W = (fs) s cos (900+ θ) = (900 + θ)

= (mg sin θ) (vt) ( –sinθ) s

W = –mg (sin2 θ) vt

C. is correct
cos (900 + θ) = – sinθ
