WORK, ENERGY AND POWER ENOTE

Energy is used up when work is done. The energy stored up in our muscular system is made available when we are to do  work. The stored up energy  (potential energy) is converted to kinetic energy as work is being done.

MEANING OF WORK, ENERGY AND POWER

Work

Work is done whenever a force is applied to cause a body to move. For instance when you lift a bucket from the ground to your head and stand at a point for several hours ; you have only done work by lifting the bucket of water from the ground  to your head ,you have done no work in carrying the bucket of water as long as you remain on the spot.

Energy

Energy is the ability to work by exerting a force to move an object through a distance. Anything that is capable of doing work has energy. For instance,a boy running a race of 100 meter has energy because he is able to move some distance. Work and energy are measured in the same unit as the JOULE.

Power

Power is defined as the time rate of doing work. If two boys   of the same weight are to climb a flight of stairs of the same height, the boy that gets to the top first is said to have the greater power. This is because he has done the work of moving his weight through that height at a shorter time.

Hence, in mathematical terms, power is expressed as: power=  workdone  or energy expended/time taken.

If the workdone  is in joules and the time is in seconds, then the power is watts.

1 watt=1 joule per second

Power can also be commonly expressed in kilowatts(KW), megawatt(MW) and horse power(h.p)

1 KW=1,000W

1MW=1,00 0,000W

1 h.p=746W

WEEK 2

CONCEPT OF WORK,ENERGY AND POWER.

Work is the product of force and  distance moved in a given direction,and the quantity of workdone is always equal to the quantity of energy put in.

In science ,work is said to be done when a force can produce movement in a measured  direction ,i.e work=force(f)x distance(d) moved in the direction of the force(fxd).

Work can simply be defined as the product of distance moved and the force applied in the direction of movement.

Generally for any workdone, there must be energy input since energy is the capacity of any system or a body to do work. Both work and energy are measured in units called joules,named after a Scientist P.joules who carried out early studies on energy.

Force is that which changes a body’s state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line.It can be expressed as:

Force=Mass x acceleration

i.e F=m x a

where F =force,m =mass and a =acceleration.The unit of force is Newton (N)

If force=mass x acceleration

Work=mass x acceleration xdistance

SUN AS THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF ENERGY

The sun is the primary source of energy available for man. It does not  deplete, and cannot be used up.

The sun transmits solar energy to the earth in the form of light and heat and this solar energy can be transformed to other forms.

Solar energy is used by green plants to manufacture their food through the process of photosynthesis. The energy stored up in green plants is made available to man and animals when they eat plant products like yam, rice ,cassava, beans grasses and so on.

In addition, solar energy can be converted to other energies such as to chemical and electrical energy for heating in homes, boiling water and for lighting our homes and streets.

Hence, the sun is the primary source of  energy for life, all other sources are secondary as they are obtained from the sun.

Examples of secondary sources are

1. Food
2. Petrol
3. Wood,
4. Water

5.Chemical,

6.Magnet and

7.Battery.

WEEK  3

POTENTIAL AND KINETIC ENERGY

Potential energy is the type of energy possessed by a body due to its position.A stone on the ground does not have energy so long as it is lying on the ground.The stone cannot be seen doing any work.However,if a stone is n a table and it placed on a table and it falls off,it can break a lamp on which it falls,the stone has done some work by virtue of its position.Therefore,when the stone is on the table,it has energy stored up as a result of its position.This energy increases as the height  of the table  increases and it decreases  as it falls towards the ground.When it reaches the ground ,it has zero potential energy.

KINETIC ENERGY

This is the energy possessed by a moving body.For example,a moving car, a man running, a falling orange, a fired bullet,a rolling ball and so on all possess kinetic energy.Both forms of energy are examples of a more general forms of energy called MECHANICAL ENERGY.

KINETIC ENERGY

Kinetic energy(K.E) is the energy possessed by an object due to its motion i.e movement energy √K.E=1/2mv2

Where M is the mass of  the moving object

V is the velocity of the object.

Potential energy is the energy possessed  by an obect by virtue of its position at rest ( its height).Potential  energy is stored energy.

P.E=m.g.h

M is mass of the object;

g is acceleration due to gravity; and

h is the height of the object from the ground.

Example1

If the mass of an object is 6kg and the height is 5m.Calculate the  potential energy .(Assuming g=10m/s2)

Solution

P.E=m.g.h

M=6k.g

h=5m

g=10m/s2

P.E=6x5x10

=300J

Example 11

If the kinetic energy of a ball moving at a velocity of 10m/s2 is 50KJ.What is the mass of the ball?

Solution

K.E=1/2mv2

K.E=50KJ=50,000J

Velocity=10m/s2

50,000=1/2x mx102

i.e 50,000=1/2x 100m

=1/2x100m

50,000=50m

50m==50,000

M=50,000/50

=1000Kg

2c. A man of mass 90kg is  moving at a constant velocity.He has kinetic energy of 2205J.Calculate the velocity at which he moves.

WEEK  4

Energy Transfer When Work Is Done

When an object is dropped from above the ground, work is done as the object is pulled to the ground .As the object is falling and work is done, the potential energy of the body is changed to kinectic energy. In principle ,the quantity of  potential energy stored in a body is always equal to kinetic energy produced when the body is released to do work. In other words, when energy changes ,for example from potential to kinetic, there is always an accompanying workdone.

EXAMPLE

What work is done when  a mass of 6kg is raised through a vertical height of 3.5m(acceleration due to gravity is 10m/s2)

Mass=6kg

Acceleration( due to gravity)=10m/s2

Workdone W=Mass x acceleration x distance

= 6kgx10x 3.5

=210 joules.

POWER

Power is also related to the concepts of energy and work. Power  is defined  as the rate of doing work, i.e workdone divided by time.

Power=Workdone/Time taken

The unit of power is Watt(w)

Example  1

What is the power of a child that has done work of 60 J in 20 seconds.

Solution

Power P=Work/Time

=60/2=3 watts

Example 2

Calculate the power of a pump which can lift 500kg of water through a vertical height of 12m in 0.3 minutes. Assuming g=9.8m/s2

Force=mass x acceleration(g)

Force=500kg x9.8N

Distance=12m

Workdone=500 x9.8 x12m

Time taken= 0.3minutes x60

=18 secs

Workdone=mass x acceleration x distance

Workdone=Force x distance

Since force= mass x acceleration

Workdone=500kg x 9.8N x12m

=58800J

Power=workdone/Time taken

=58800/18

Power=3266.67 watts

Convert this to kilowatts by dividing by 1000

=3266.67/1000

=3.27kilowatts

EVALUATION

KINETIC ENERGY

The Kinetic theory  of matter assumes that matter is made up of tiny particles such as atoms,molecules and ions that are continually moving and therefore possess kinectic energy.

A British Scientist,Dalton,about  1806AD,expanded the idea of atoms.He made various statement about the nature of atoms.His ideas about atoms are stated below:

1.Matter is made up of minute indivisible particles called atoms.

2.Atoms cannot be created or destroyed.

3.All the atoms of an element are alike and different from the atoms of all other elements.

4.Atoms combine in small whole numbers to form new substances.

All these ideas collectively form Dalton’s atomic theory.Since Dalton’s atomic theory was proposed,scientists have accepted the idea that matter is made up of particles.

Kinetic energy is the energy a body has by virtue of its motion.The kinetic theory of matter assumes that the particles that make up matter have energy,and that these particles are in constant motion.

Assumptions of the kinetic theory

The basic assumptions of the kinetic theory deals with energy due to the movement of particles and it includes:

1.Matter is made up of tiny indivisible particles that are in constant motion and therefore possess kinetic energy.

2.Increase in heat supply or increase in temperature,causes increase in the motion of the particles and thus , increase in average kinetic energy of the particles.

3.Increase in kinetic energy of the particles due to increase in heat supply brings about change in state viz solid,liquid and gas.

EVALUATION

1.State the Kinetic theory of  Matter.

2.What are the assumptions of the kinetic theory of matter?

WEEK  8

EXPLANATION  OF MOLECULAR STRUCTURES USING KINETIC THEORY

Kinetic molecular theory is useful in describing the properties of solids, liquids and gases at the molecular level.  Kinetic theory of matter assumes that matter is made up of tiny particles such as atoms , molecules and ions that are continually moving and therefore possess kinetic energy. The more heat you give these particles, the faster their movement will be. Hence, increase  in temperature causes increase in the average kinetic energy of the particles. Matter exists in three states which are Solid, Liquid, Gas.

Solids

The particles of a solid will possess only a small amount of kinetic energy. The particles of a solid are always in motion, however, the motion will be so minuscule that we can say that they are simply vibrating in position. Thus, the particles of a solid will have a very ordered structure. Solids have a definite shape, a definite volume and are not easily compressed.

The particles of a solid are vibrating in a very ordered arrangement

Liquids

The particles of a liquid possess a greater amount of kinetic energy than the particles of a solid. Thus, the particles of liquid will not be in an ordered arrangement and will take on the shape of the container that they are placed in. These particles will possess enough energy to flow throughout a container and past one another. They do not have enough energy to escape the attraction they have for each other and as a result will remain loosely connected. Liquids have an indefinite shape, a definite volume and are not easily compressed.

The particles of a liquid are flowing in a loosely connected arrangement

Gases

The particles of a gas possess a very large amount of kinetic energy and move very rapidly and randomly.  The particles of a gas are moving so fast that they have no attraction for one another. As a result of this kinetic energy, the particles of a gas will have large empty spaces between them. Just as with liquids, gases will take on the shape of the container that they are placed in. Gases have an indefinite shape, an indefinite volume and are easily compressed (due to the large empty spaces between particles)

The particles of a gas are moving very rapidly and randomly

WEEK 9

EXPLANATION OF SOME CHANGES IN STATES OF MATTER USING KINETIC THEORY

Melting:When a solid is heated,the particles acquire more kinetic energy and vibrate more vigorously.Eventually,at a certain temperature called the meiting point of the solid,the force of the vibrations overcome the binding forces and solid structure collapses.The particles are no longer in fixed positions,but free to move.At this point,the solid is said to have melted or liquified.

Condensation and freezing:Condensation is a process whereby a vapour loses some of its kinetic energy when cooled and changes into liquid state.when   a liquid cools,it loses heat energy causing its temperature to drop.if cooling is allowed to continue,the temperature of the liquid  keeps on dropping,until it reaches the freezing point of the liquid.The liquid changes into the solid state at this temperature.The freezing point of a substance is the same as its melting point.

Diffusion:This is defined as the movement of solute particles through a medium, from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration,that is,movement from a more crowded region to less crowded regionOnce the solute particles become evenly distributed throughout the medium,there will be net diffusion in any particular direction.Diffusion is fastest in gases because gas particles have more kinetic energy than particles in liquids and solids.

WEEK 10

EXPLANATION OF SOME CHANGES IN STATES OF MATTER USING KINETIC THEORY

EVAPORATION AND BOILING

Evaporation

Particles in a liquid are attracted by other neighbouring particles in all direction.When particles with sufficient come near the surface of the liquid,they can break away from the attractive forces of the other nearby molecules and escape into the space above and become vapour or gas.This phenomenon is called evaporation.Evaporation occurs at any temperature,though the rate of evaporation increases with increase in temperature.Evaporation increase with wind,surface area and lower relative humidity.

Boiling

When a liquid is heated,the rate of evaporation increases.The vapour pressure of the liquid also increases until a temperature is reached,at which the vapour pressure equals the atmospheric pressure.When this happens,bubbles of vapour form freely in the liquid and rise to the surface.This phenomenon is called boiling.The temperature at which boiling takes place is known as boiling point.

Factors Affecting Evaporation

i.The temperature of the liquid

In a liquid,the particles are in motion.When water is heated,the motion of the particles will become more rapid than before.Each particles that collides with  another one will change direction.As the heating continues,the particles will gain more energy.Some particles will gain sufficient energy to break through the surface tension of the liquid and escape as gas.Evaporation of liquids occur at all temperatures but the rate of evaporation increases with increase in temperature.Since evaporation results in the escape of energetic particles from the liquid body,the average kinetic energy of the liquid is lowered.This results in a drop in temperature of the liquid body.Therefore evaporation results in drop in temperature.

ii.The nature of the liquid substance:Apart from the temperature,the rate of evaporation is also influenced by the type of liquid.For instance,the rate of evaporation of water is lower than that of petrol.
