AP Physics 1 - Ch 5 Work and Energy

• AP Physics 1

There are many different TYPES of Energy.

• Energy is expressed in JOULES (J)
• 4.19 J = 1 calorie
• Energy can be expressed more specifically by using the term WORK(W)
• Work = The Scalar Dot Product between Force and Displacement. If you apply a force on an object and it covers a displacement IN THE DIRECTION OF THE FORCE you have supplied ENERGY to, or done WORK on, that object.

Scalar Dot Product?

• A product is obviously a result of multiplying 2 numbers. A scalar is a quantity with NO DIRECTION. So basically Work is found by multiplying the Force times the displacement and result is ENERGY, which has no direction associated with it.
• A dot product is basically a CONSTRAINT on the formula. In this case it means that F and x MUST be parallel. To ensure that they are parallel we add the cosine on the end.
