Hooke’s Law for Springs • “k” = spring constant (strength of spring) • Ideal springs have no preload (F0). • Any amount of force on a spring causes it to stretch. General Equation:
Effort to Stretch Spring • The energy to stretch a spring involves the combination of… • The force of tension in the spring (FT) • The displacement or stretch of the spring (Δx) • How do we represent this force-stretch combination? … or the combination of two values in general?
Review: finding displacement (Δd) • If you are moving your displacement depends on 2 things… • How fast you are traveling • How much time you are traveling at that speed • We found this graphically by finding the area under the curve of a velocity versus time graph. During Constant Velocity: During Acceleration: Δd = (½)•bh = 9m Δd = (2m/s)•6s = 12m

Finding Effort Mathematically • The effort exerted to stretch a spring can be used to do things (launch a projectile, etc…) • We can say that ENERGY is stored in a stretched or compressed spring. Energy stored In a Spring (Eel) = Area under The graph
Energy Stored in a Spring (Eel) Eel = Elastic Energy k= Spring Constant Δd= displacement or stretch Joules (J) are the standard units for ENERGY A calorie is also a unit of energy.
Money Analogy for Energy • Use a whiteboard to illustrate how money ($) is used and moves in our society: • Consider the following questions? • How is $ moved or is transferred in society? • What can you do with $? • Where is $ stored when it is not being transferred? • How do individuals get $? • Etc... Be creative! (school appropriate and legal)
Important Ideas about Money • $ is transferred between people • You get $ by working • $ gives you the ability to do things • $ is stored in different places (banks, pockets, etc…) • The flow of money can be cyclic
Analogy for Energy • Spring – our system, something that can store energy. • A spring is like a bank, a place where $ can be stored. • Energy – gives you the ability to do things / change things. • Energy is like $, which gives you the ability to do things in society. • It cannot be created or destroyed, just transferred from one place to another. • “Working” – transferring energy from one system to another. • Working = transferring $ from one person to another(losing and gaining $)
Energy ($) Storage Accounts • Elastic Energy Account (Eel)–you can store energy in an elastic material by working on it (apply a force over some displacement) • Gravitational Energy Account (Eg) – you can store energy in the Earth’s gravitational field by increasing the distance between the earth and an object. • Kinetic Energy Account (Ek) – the energy stored in moving objects. • Internal Energy Account (Eint) – the energy stored in the random motion of atoms in a system. Measured by change in temperatures.
Energy Bar Charts (LOL) • A visual way to account for the energy in a system. Where the energy is being stored and any transfers, into or out of the system (bank)

Kinetic Energy Account: • What visually tells us that an object has more or less kinetic energy (Ek)? • Its velocity or speed • …so the kinetic energy an object has depends on its velocity.
Studying Kinetic Energy (Ek & V) Ek(J) Ek (J) V(m/s) • If we pull the cart back, what kind of energy is stored in the system? • Where does the energy go when you release the car and the spring has lost all its stored energy? ? 0 0 V(m/s) Motion Sensor Δx m = 0.291kg
Kinetic Energy (Ek) • The energy stored in moving objects. • Depends on the mass and velocity of an object. • Kinetic energy increases as mass increases. • Kinetic energy increases when velocity increases.
Energy Review • What is energy? • The ability to do something • Gained or lost through “working” (W=FΔx) • How or where can energy be stored? • In a stretched spring or elastic material (Eel = 1/2k(Δx)2) • In a moving object (Ek = 1/2mV2) • By raising an object off the ground (Eg =?) • In the motion of atoms or molecules (Eint)
Gravitational Energy (Eg) Account • To be above the ground something has to do work ON the car to give it some Eg: F =_____ h Fg = mg Eg = g = 10N/kg
Whiteboard Problem • How high should the cart be placed so that it will have a velocity of 1m/s when it goes through the photogate? (Photogate) m = 0.291kg h = ? h = 0m
