Describe how to determine the ideal mechanical advantage of each type of simple machine. 13. Define and identify compound machines. The weight lifter applies a large force to hold the barbell over his head. Because the barbell is motionless, no work is done on the barbell. What Is Work? What Is Work? When does a force do work? In science, work is the product of force and distance. For a force to do work on an object, some of the force must act in the same direction as the object moves. If there is no movement, no work is done. Any part of a force that does not act in the direction of motion does no work on an object. 1

2 What Is Work? Work is done when a force acts on an object in the direction the object moves. Work is done when the weightlifter exerts an upward force to raise the barbell. What Is Work? Work Requires Motion The weight lifter does no work on the barbell as he holds it over his head. The force applied to the barbell does not cause it to move. What Is Work? Work Depends on Direction If all of the force acts in the same direction as the motion, all of the force does work. If part of the applied force acts in the direction of motion, that part of the force does work. If none of the force is applied in the direction of the motion, the force does no work. What Is Work? A. All of the force does work on the suitcase. Force Direction of motion Force and motion in the same direction What Is Work? A. All of the force does work on the suitcase. B. The horizontal part of the force does work. What Is Work? A. All of the force does work on the suitcase. B. The horizontal part of the force does work. C. The force does no work on the suitcase.

3 Calculating Work Calculating Work Units of Work When using SI units in the work formula, the force is in newtons, and distance is in meters. The joule (J) is the SI unit of work. A joule is equal to 1 newton-meter. Calculating Work Using the Work Formula A weight lifter raises a 1600-newton barbell to a height of 2.0 meters. Work = Force Distance Work = 1600 N 2.0 m Work = 3200 N m = 3200 J What Is Power? How are work and power related? Power is the rate of doing work. Doing work at a faster rate requires more power. To increase power, you can increase the amount of work done in a given time, or you can do a given amount of work in less time. What Is Power? Work is required to move snow from one location to another. A person using a shovel and a person using a snow blower can both do the work needed to remove the snow. The snow blower can do the job much faster because it has more power. What Is Power? Because the snow blower can remove more snow in less time, it requires more power than hand shoveling does. 3

4 When using SI units in the power formula, work is measured in joules (J), and time is measured in seconds (s). The SI unit of power is the watt (W), which is equal to one joule per second. You exert a vertical force of 72 newtons to lift a box to a height of 1.0 meter in a time of 2.0 seconds. How much power is used to lift the box? Read and Understand What information are you given?

Look Back and Check Is your answer reasonable? 36 watts is not a lot of power, which seems reasonable considering the box was lifted slowly, through a height of only 1 meter. 1. Your family is moving to a new apartment. While lifting a box 1.5 m straight up to put it on a truck, you exert an upward force of 200 N for 1.0 s. How much power is required to do this? 5

6 1. Your family is moving to a new apartment. While lifting a box 1.5 m straight up to put it on a truck, you exert an upward force of 200 N for 1.0 s. How much power is required to do this? 2. You lift a book from the floor to a bookshelf 1.0 m above the ground. How much power is used if the upward force is 15.0 N and you do the work in 2.0 s? Answer: Work = Force Distance = 200 N 1.5 m = 300 J Power = Work/Time = 300 J/1.0 s = 300 W 2. You lift a book from the floor to a bookshelf 1.0 m above the ground. How much power is used if the upward force is 15.0 N and you do the work in 2.0 s? Answer: Work = Force Distance = 15 N 1.0 m = 15 J Power = Work/Time = 15 J/2.0 s = 7.5 W 3. You apply a horizontal force of 10.0 N to pull a wheeled suitcase at a constant speed of 0.5 m/s across flat ground. How much power is used? (Hint: The suitcase moves 0.5 m/s. Consider how much work the force does each second and how work is related to power.) 3. You apply a horizontal force of 10.0 N to pull a wheeled suitcase at a constant speed of 0.5 m/s across flat ground. How much power is used? (Hint: The suitcase moves 0.5 m/s. Consider how much work the force does each second and how work is related to power.) Answer: Work = Force Distance = 10.0 N 0.5 m = 5 J Power = Work/Time = 5 J/1.0 s = 5 W James Watt and Horsepower Another common unit of power is the horsepower. One horsepower (hp) is equal to about 746 watts. James Watt ( ) was looking for a way to compare the power outputs of steam engines he had designed. Horses were a logical choice for comparison as they were the most commonly used source of power in the 1700s. 6

8 The cable supporting the gondola forms an inclined plane, a type of machine. The inclined plane is used to move people up to the top of the mountain. The gondola uses the inclined plane formed by its supporting cable to more easily move people uphill. The increased horizontal distance (input distance) is greater than the vertical gain in height (output distance). The inclined cable gives the gondola a mechanical advantage greater than 1.

Answer: IMA = Input distance/output distance IMA = 0.5 m/0.05 m = The IMA of a simple machine is 2.5. If the output distance of the machine is 1.0 m, what is the input distance? 3. The IMA of a simple machine is 2.5. If the output distance of the machine is 1.0 m, what is the input distance? Answer: Input distance = (IMA)(Output distance) Input distance = (2.5)(1.0 m) = 2.5 m 10

11 Efficiency Why is the efficiency of a machine always less than 100 percent? The percentage of the work input that becomes work output is the efficiency of a machine. Because there is always some friction, the efficiency of any machine is always less than 100 percent. Efficiency Efficiency is usually expressed as a percentage. For example, if the efficiency of a machine is 75 percent, then you know that 75 percent of the work input becomes work output. Efficiency If a machine requires 10.0 J of work input to operate, then the work output is 75% of 10.0 J. Efficiency Reducing friction increases the efficiency of a machine. Roller bearings reduce the friction of the rotating wheels because rolling friction is less than sliding friction. To further reduce the rolling friction, the roller bearings are also lubricated with grease. Efficiency Engineers analyze the flow pattern of a smoke trail to determine the fluid friction forces (air resistance) acting on the vehicle. Engineers use these data to optimize a vehicle's shape for maximum fuel efficiency. The output of one device acts as the input of the next. 11

12 Levers What are the six types of simple machines? The six types of simple machines are the lever, the wheel and axle, the inclined plane, the wedge, the screw, and the pulley. What determines the mechanical advantage of the six types of simple machines? To calculate the ideal mechanical advantage of any lever, divide the input arm by the output arm. Levers A lever is a rigid bar that is free to move around a fixed point. The fixed point the bar rotates around is the fulcrum. Levers The input arm of a lever is the distance between the input force and the fulcrum. The output arm is the distance between the output force and the fulcrum. Levers are classified into three categories based on the locations of the input force, the output force, and the fulcrum. Levers First-Class Levers The fulcrum of a first-class lever is always located between the input force and the output force. Depending on the fulcrum position, the mechanical advantage can be greater than 1, equal to 1, or less than 1. Levers The screwdriver is being used as a first-class lever with a mechanical advantage greater than 1. (Diagram is not drawn to scale.) 12

13 Levers Second-Class Levers In a second-class lever, the output force is located between the input force and the fulcrum. The input distance is larger than the output distance. The mechanical advantage of a second-class lever is always greater than 1. Levers The wheelbarrow has its output force located between the input force and the fulcrum. (Diagram is not drawn to scale.) Levers Third-Class Levers The input force of a third-class lever is located between the fulcrum and the output force. The output distance over which the third-class lever exerts its force is larger than the input distance. The mechanical advantage of a third-class lever is always less than 1. Levers The output distance of the broom is greater than the input distance the hands move through. (Diagram is not drawn to scale.) Wheel and Axle To calculate the ideal mechanical advantage of the wheel and axle, divide the radius (or diameter) where the input force is exerted by the radius (or diameter) where the output force is exerted. Wheel and Axle A wheel and axle is a simple machine that consists of two disks or cylinders, each one with a different radius. The outer disk is the wheel and the inner cylinder is the axle. The wheel and the axle rotate together as a unit. 13

14 Wheel and Axle The input force can be exerted on the wheel or the axle. If the force is applied to the wheel, the input distance is larger than the output distance. The mechanical advantage is greater than 1. If the force is applied to the axle, the output distance is larger than the input distance. The mechanical advantage is less than 1. Wheel and Axle A wheel and axle is a type of simple machine consisting of two disks or cylinders with different radii. Input Output Input Output Steering shaft Screwdriver shaft Steering wheel Screwdriver handle Inclined Planes The ideal mechanical advantage of an inclined plane is the distance along the inclined plane divided by its change in height. Inclined Planes An inclined plane is a slanted surface along which a force moves an object to a different elevation. The distance traveled is the input distance. The change in height of the ramp is its output distance. The mechanical advantage of an inclined plane is greater than 1. Inclined Planes This long and winding road acts like an inclined plane. Wedges and Screws A thin wedge of a given length has a greater ideal mechanical advantage than a thick wedge of the same length. Screws with threads that are closer together have a greater ideal mechanical advantage. 14

15 Wedges and Screws Wedges A wedge is a V-shaped object whose sides are two inclined planes sloped toward each other. A wedge has a mechanical advantage greater than 1. Wedges and Screws The wedge consists of two inclined planes that slope toward each other. The inclined planes force the wood fibers apart as the wedge is driven into the log. Input f orce Wedges and Screws Screws A screw is an inclined plane wrapped around a cylinder. For two screws of the same length, the one whose threads are closer together moves forward less for each turn of the screw. A screw has a mechanical advantage greater than 1. Wedges and Screws A screw is a simple machine made up of an inclined plane wrapped around a cylinder. Pulleys The ideal mechanical advantage of a pulley or pulley system is equal to the number of rope sections supporting the load being lifted. Pulleys A pulley is a simple machine that consists of a rope that fits into a groove in a wheel. Pulleys produce an output force that is different in size, direction, or both, from that of the input force. The mechanical advantage of a pulley can be equal to or greater than 1. 15

16 Pulleys A pulley moves a large fabricated part through a factory. Pulleys Fixed Pulleys A fixed pulley is a wheel attached in a fixed location. The direction of the exerted force is changed by a fixed pulley, but the size of the force is not. The ideal mechanical advantage of a fixed pulley is always 1. Pulleys A fixed pulley changes only the direction of the input force. Fixed Pulley 4 N Pulleys Movable Pulley A movable pulley is attached to the object being moved rather than to a fixed location. Both sections of the rope pull up with the same force. The movable pulley has a mechanical advantage of 2. 4 N 4 N Pulleys Movable pulleys change both the direction and the size of the input force. Movable Pulley 2 N Pulleys 2 N Pulley System A large mechanical advantage can be achieved by combining fixed and movable pulleys into a pulley system. The mechanical advantage depends on how the pulleys are arranged. The ideal mechanical advantage of a pulley system is equal to the number of rope sections supporting the load being lifted. 4 N 16

17 Pulleys Pulley systems are made up of both fixed and movable pulleys. Pulley System 1 N 1 N 1 N 1 N 1 N Pulley System Performance A shipyard has many different pulleys and pulley systems in use. The pulleys are used to move large, heavy, fabricated ship sections through the manufacturing process. During an annual safety and performance inspection of three of the company s systems, a facility engineer collected the data shown in the graph. The data give the measured output forces for a range of given input forces. 4 N 1. Using Graphs What system requires the smallest input force to lift a 2500-N load? 1.

19 Compound Machines A compound machine is a combination of two or more simple machines that operate together. Most of the machines you use are compound machines. The edges of a pair of scissors are sharpened like wedges. The blades and the handles together function as levers. Cars, washing machines, and clocks are combinations of hundreds or thousands of simple machines. Compound Machines This watch consists of a series of machines. The output of one machine acts as the driving input for the next machine in the series. 19
