• Holding a heavy object motionless involves
a lot of work.
• Energy is lost when an object is
motionless.
• A machine is a device that creates energy.
• A light bulb transforms electrical energy
into light and thermal energy.
Construct the Foldable as directed at the beginning of this chapter.

Sketch a nail and a screw. Explain which one uses less force
and why.
Answer: To drive a nail you have to exert a lot of energy on the
hammer to force the nail into the wood. The screw uses less
energy because the screw takes smaller movements to reach the
same point (depth).

A child sits at the top of a slide at a playground. He wiggles
forward slightly, and then slides all the way down with no further effort. Explain the
source of the force acting on the child, and how you would calculate the work being
done.
Accept all reasonable responses. The force of gravity is acting on the child, causing him
to slide. The work being done on the child is the vertical distance he slides times the
force exerted, which is the height of the slide (in meters), times his weight (in newtons).
