OAT Physics

Chapter 3 - Work, E, and Momentum

Work F acting on an object which moves through a distance d; = Fd cos theta
When F and d are perpendicular No work is done cuz cos 90 = 0
Power rate at which work is done; Watts = J/s
Kinetic E E of motion; = 1/2 mv^2
Potential E E of position; = mgh
When mechanical E is not conserved... E is drained away in form of heat
Mechanical E KE + PE = total E
W when is comes to mass and velocity = change in KE
Non-conservative Force friction
Conservation of E when the work done by non-conservative forces is zero (no air resistance), E is conserved and E = KE + PE
Pulleys these allow F to be reduced but distance that the force is exerted over is increased to compensate
Efficiency (Pulley) W out/W in ; load x load distance/effort x effort distance
effort distance load distance multiplied by the number of pulleys present
Momentum p = mv
Impulse J = Ft = change in momentum
Conservation of Momentum (collisions) Total p initial = Total p final; (p of object a)(p of object b)i = (pa)(pb)f
Completely inelastic collisions objects stick together after the collision; only momentum conserved
Completely elastic collisions objects dnt stick together after collision; KE is conserved; use momentum AND KE equations here
Center of Mass Equation X = (m1x1 + m2x2) / m1 +m2; x is the center point of the object. If a cube has a length of 4m, x would be at 2m

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
