Projectiles Using Energy
Conservative System: Ei = initial mechanical energy = KEi + PEi
Ef = KEf + PEf
=
mvi2 + mgh
=
mvi2
Conservation: Ef = Ei
mvi2 =
mvi2 + mgh
Conservative Systems with Springs:
Hooke’s Law =
spring = -k
Wsp
sp
Fext = -Fsp
= kx
Wsp =
kx2 = PE stored by spring
Non-Conservative Systems (Friction):
Wext =
ext = Fext x
Frictionless: Wext = ∆KE + ∆PE
Add Friction: Wext = ∆KE + ∆PE + ∆TE
TE: thermal energy dissipated by the system
Alternatively, Wext - |Wf| = ∆PE + ∆KE
TE = |Wf| Wf = Fkx
Power:
- the rate at which energy is transferred from one system to another
Wext = Fextx
Power = 

IF an external force is applied giving external work Wext over a time interval, then

If Wext = Fextx, Pavg = 

Document Summary

Conservative system: ei = initial mechanical energy = kei + pei. Hooke"s law = spring = -k . Wext = ext = fext x. Add friction: wext = ke + pe + te. Power: kx2 = pe stored by spring the rate at which energy is transferred from one system to another. If an external force is applied giving external work wext over a time interval, then the average power is pavg = Instantaneous power: pinst = ext inst = ext . Impulse = = avg t = area under force-time graph.
