7. Conservation of Energy 1. 2. 3. 4. Conservative & Non-conservative Forces Potential Energy Conservation of Mechanical Energy Potential Energy Curves How many different energy conversions take place as the Yellowstone River plunges over Yellowstone Falls? P.E. K.E., sound, & heat Work against conservative force (path independent), e.g., gravity: Work can be stored potential energy. Work against non-conservative force (path dependent), e.g., friction: Work is dissipated heat & entropy. 7.1. Conservative & Non-conservative Forces F is conservative if C F dr 0 WAB = WBA = WAB WAB F d r is path-independent WBA + WAB = 0 WAB i.e., for every closed path C. B A WAB BA F is non-conservative if there is a closed path C such that Mathematica C F dr 0 B WAB F d r A is path-dependent Example: Work done on climber by gravity Going up: W1 = ( m g ) h =mgh F m g ˆj Going down: r h ˆj r h ˆj W2 = ( m g ) ( h) =mgh F m g ˆj Round trip: W = W 1 + W2 = 0 Horizontal displacement requires no work. Gravity is conservative. Example: Work done on trunk by friction Ff m g ˆi r L ˆi Going right: W1 = ( m g ) L = m g L Going left: W2 = ( m g ) ( L) = m g L r L ˆi Ff m g ˆi Round trip: W = W1 + W2 = 2 m g L 0 Friction is non-conservative. GOT IT? 7.1. If it takes the same amount of work to push a trunk across a rough floor as it does to lift a weight to the same distance straight upward. How do the amounts of work compare if the trunk & weight are moved along curved paths between the same starting & end points? Ans. Work is greater for the trunk. 7.2. Potential Energy Conservative force: Potential energy = stored work = ( work done by force ) B U AB WAB F d r A Note: only difference of potential energy matters.
