Review of Work and Energy
Work is done on an object against a force.
♦ An object is lifted against the force of
gravity
♦ A box is pushed across the floor against
the force of friction.
W=F D
Objects gain energy when work is done on
them.
♦ A raised object gains gravitational
potential energy.
♦ A box pushed across the floor gains
kinetic energy of motion.
Epot = M g h
2
Ekin = ½ M v
Machines make tasks easier by reducing the
force we must apply (Fin), but they cannot
reduce the amount of work needed.
9-2
What is Power?
Power is a rate describing the
amount of work done per unit of time:
Power = Work/time elapsed
P
=
W
t
We can also think of power as the amount
of energy transferred per unit time:
Power = Energy transferred/time elapsed
P
=
E
t
Power is measured in units of joules/second.
One joule/second = 1 watt
Power is also measured in ft-lbs/sec or horsepower (hsp).
One horsepower = 746 watts
One ft-lb/sec = 0.0018 hsp = 1.36 watts

Act. 9.1- 9.2: Power Requirements
• Light the bulbs using power generated by your
muscles. Which energy conversions take place
as you crank the generator?
• Do the power requirements of the appliances
match their wattages? Which has the largest
power requirement?
• How does increasing the “load” on the drill
affect its power requirement?
• Time yourself climbing the stairs. How much
gravitational potential energy do you gain?
Calculate the power required.
• How much energy is required to light the
bulbs connected to the exercise bicycle?

Act. 9.3: The Cost of Electricity
Power companies charge for electricity in units
of kilowatt hours (kWh). One kilowatt hour is
1,000 watts of energy provided per hour.
♦ The energy used equals the power required by
the appliance multiplied by the operating time.
♦ Find the energy used by an appliance by
solving the power equation for energy, E.
P
=
E
t
or
E
=
P
=
power (in watts)
E
=
energy (in joules)
t
=
time (in seconds)
P t
(Example)
How many kilowatt hours of energy are used
when a 100 watt light bulb burns for 6½
hours?
100 watts x
1 kilowatt
x 6.5 hours = 0.65 kWh
1,000 watts
9-6
Calculations with Electricity Costs
Example 1: Find the total cost of electricity
If electricity costs 7.5 cents/kWh, what is
the cost of 0.44 kWh of electricity?
0.44 kWh x \$0.075 = \$0.033
kWh
Example 2: Find the cost per kilowatt hour
If 0.44 kWh of electricity costs 3.3 cents,
what is the cost of electricity per kWh?
\$0.033 x
1
=
0.44 kWh
\$0.075
kWh
Example 3: Find the kWh used.
If electricity costs 7.5 cents/kWh, how
many kWh can you buy for 3.3 cents?
\$ 0.033 x
1 kWh
\$0.075
= 0.44 kWh
9-7
Minimizing Electricity Costs
Payback time is the time it takes to recover
efficient, more expensive appliance from the
savings in energy costs.
(Example 9.5)
A 25 watt CF bulb costs \$5 to purchase and
lasts for 10,000 hours. A 75 watt incandescent
bulb costs \$0.50 to purchase and lasts for
If electricity costs
\$08.5/kWh, what is the cost of purchasing and
operating each type of bulb for 10,000 hours?
Compact Fluorescent Bulb
1.
Operating cost of CF bulb:
25 watts x
1 kilowatt
\$0.085
x 10 ,000 hrs x
1,000 watts
kilowatt hour
=
\$21.25
2. Purchase price of CF bulb = \$5.00
3. Total cost = \$21.25 + \$5.00 = \$26.25

1 bulb
= 14 bulbs
750 hours
Purchase price of bulbs:
14 bulbs x
4.
\$63.75
Number of bulbs needed for 10,000 hrs:
10 ,000 hours x
3.
=
\$0.50
bulb
=
\$7.00
Total cost = \$63.75 + \$7.00 = \$70.75
Compare the cost of the two types of bulbs:
Cost of Incandescent
Cost of CF
= \$70.75
\$21.25
= 3.3
Using an incandescent bulb for 10,000 hours
costs 3.3 times more than using a CF bulb.

♦ The same amount is added during each time
period.
♦ The amount added is independent of the initial
amount.
♦ The amount added is independent of the
number of elapsed time periods.
Exponential Growth
♦ Exponential growth is not constant. Its graph
is an upward curving line.
♦ The amount added changes with each time
period.
♦ Exponential growth doubles the amount of the
quantity during each time period.
♦ The amount added depends on the initial
amount and on the number of time periods.
♦ The doubling time is the length of time
required for the quantity to double.

Period 9 Summary
9.1:Power is the rate at which work is done or
energy is transferred.
P = W/t
or
P = E/t
Power is measured in joules/second, or
watts, in metric units and in ft-lbs/second
or horsepower in English units.
9.2:Electrical energy provided to homes is
measured and billed in kilowatt hours.
9.3:Payback time is the time it takes to recover
efficient, more expensive appliance from the
savings in energy costs.
9-12
Period 9 Summary, Continued
9.4:Electricity production in the U.S. has grown
rapidly – at times linearly and at other
times exponentially.
♦ Linear growth adds a constant amount to
the initial amount each time period.
♦ Linear growth rates are independent of the
initial amount and the number of
time periods.
♦
Exponential growth doubles the amount each
time period.
♦ Exponential growth rates are dependent on
the initial amount and on the number
of time periods elapsed.
♦ The time needed to double a quantity is
called its doubling time.
