• Scalar quantities are physical quantities with magnitude only.
• Vector quantities are physical quantities with direction and magnitude.

## Scalar Quantity Vector Quantity

Speed Displacement
Distance Velocity
Volume Acceleration
Temperature Weight
Time Momentum

## 1.1 Quantity calculation:

Example 1.1:
Express the following derived quantities and their units in terms of base
quantities and base units.

## Acceleration = velocity change

b) Pressure = Force
Area

Solution:
a) Force = mass x acceleration
= mass x velocity change
time

time
= mass x displacement x 1
time time
= mass x displacement
time2
Therefore, unit of force is kg m s-2

b) Pressure = force
Area
= mass x length x length-2
time2
= mass
time2 x length2
Therefore, unit of pressure is kg m-2 s-2

1.1 Prefixes

## 1.1 Conversion of units.

• In certain specific situation, physical units need to be changed.
• Necessary when calculation involves usage of formulae where units of
every quantity must be uniform.

## Basic unit conversion

Length Time Weight
1 km  1000m
1 hour  60 minutes
1 m  100cm 1 kg  1000g
1 minute  60 seconds
1 cm  10 mm

Example 1.2:
Change the following quantities to the units shown.

a) 10 km = _______ m
b) 20 kg = _______ g
c) 30 cm2 = _______ m2
d) 1.2 hours = _______ seconds

Solution:

a) 10 km = ________ m

## Note that 1 km = 1000 m

so,
10 km x . m .
km
= 10 km x 1000m
1 km
= 10 x 1000m

5
1
= 10000m

b) 20 kg = _________ g

## Note that 1 kg = 1000 g

so,
20 kg x . g .
kg
= 20 kg x 1000 g
1 kg
= 20 x 1000 g
= 20000 g
c) 30 cm = ________ m

## Note that 1 m = 100 cm

so,
30 cm2 xm
cm
= (30 cm x cm) x 1m x 1m
100 cm 100 cm
= 30 x 1m x 1m
100 100
= 30 x 1m x 1m
100 x 100
= 30 m2
10000
= 0.003 m2

## Note that 1 hour = 60 minutes

1 minute = 60 seconds

so,
1.2 hour x minutes x seconds
hour minute
= 1.2 hour x 60 minutes x 60 seconds
1 hour 1 minute

= 1.2 x 60 x 60 seconds
1x1
= 4320 seconds

10 FORCES
1.1 Define forces
• Happen when there is act or pull action applied on object
• These acts will cause the object to move
• Will create speed on the direction of force
• Also needed to bring a moving object to stop
• Affect of force are shown below

## Can change the size or shape of anCan

object
change the direction of a moving
Canobject
accelerate or decelerate a moving object
Can move a stationary object Can stop a moving object

11
1.1 Describe the effects of forces acting on objects
1.1.1 Balanced forces
• Balance forces acting on an object will cause them to cancel
each other meaning the net force on the object is zero.
• Balance force will make an object in rest stays immobile.
• Balance force on moving object will ensure the object to move
at constant speed without acceleration and in straight line.
• Forces acting to the left = forces acting to the right and forces
acting upward = forces acting downward

1.1.1 Unbalanced forces
• Happens when a net force is not zero.
• This condition will cause a resting object to move and a
moving object to accelerate.
• It will also affect a moving object to stop or decelerate and to
change its direction.
• Forces acting to the left ≠ forces acting to the right and forces
acting upward ≠ forces acting downward

1.1 Sum of forces
• Sum of forces can only be calculated when the forces are acting along
one straight line such as on Y-axis or X-axis.
• Forces acting to the right an upward are considered as positive and
forces acting downward and to the left are considered negative forces.

Example 2.1:
Calculate the net force acting on every object given:
a)
F312
F1 = 25 N F2 = 30 N

b)

15
F1 = 35 N F2 = 20 N
F3 = 15 N
c)
F1 = 40 N F2 = 25 N
F3 = 2 N

d)
F1 = 15 N F2 = 35 N

F3 = 25 N
e) F1 = 40 N F2 = 50 N

Solutions:
F3 = 200 N
a) F = - F1 + F2
= (- 25 + 30) N
= 5 N (Object move to the right)

b) F = - F1 + F2 + F3
= (- 35 + 20 + 15) N
= 0 N ( Object is in rest)

c) F = - F1 + F2 - F3
= (- 40 + 25 – 2) N
= - 37 N ( Object moves to the left)

d) F = F1 + F2 – F3
= (15 + 35 – 25 ) N
= 25 N ( Object moves upward)
e) F = - F1 + F2 – F3
= (- 40 + 50 – 200) N
= -190 N (object moves downward)
1.1 Newton’s 3 law of motion.
1.1.1 1st law - An object at rest continues in its state of rest. If moving it
continues to move with uniform velocity, unless acted by some
external force.
F=0

16
2.4.2 2nd law – The rate of change of a linear momentum of an object is
directly proportional to the resultant force (net external force)
acting on it and is in the direction of the force.

F= =m = ma
mv − mu v−u
 
t  t 

F =

2.4.3 3rd law – When two bodies X and Y interact, the force exerted by
X on Y is equal and opposite to the force exerted by Y on X.

FX on Y = FY on X

## • The weight of an object is defined as the force gravity acting on

the object. The expression for the weight of an object with m is
calculated from the equation F = ma, as follow;

W =

with:

W = Weight
m = mass (mass of an object is the total quantity
of material contained in the object)
g = gravity (where g is constant at 9.81 ms-2)

Example 2.2:

Diagram below shows a 5kg object resting on a plain surface. The object
is soon lifted from the surface. Calculate the minimum force needed to lift
the object.

17
5 kg

solution:

F = mg
= 5 kg x 9.81 m/s2
= 49.05 N

Example2.3:

## What is the minimum force made by 10 stones to a table surface if each of

the rock has 3 kg mass?

solution:

F = mg
= (10 x 3kg) x 9.81
= 294.3 N

Example 2.4:

## A sum of 2050 N of force acted on a walking board used by 4 painters to

stand on. Calculate the mass of one painter.

solution:

F = mg
2050 N = m (9.81)
m = 2050/9.81
= 208.97kg

= 52.2426kg

## 1.1.1 Force acting against incline plane

• This type of force happens when there is an inclined plane
involve in the situation.
.

F = mg (sin

18
with:

F = Force
m = mass
g = gravity
θ = degree of inclination

Example 2.5:

Based on the diagram given, calculate the force needed to pull the object
along the inclined plane.

30o

solution:

F = mg (sin θ)
= (4 kg) (9.81)(sin 30)
= 19.62 N

Example 2.6:

## Assuming a force of 15N needed to pull an object along a plane with a

degree of inclination of 37o, calculate the mass of the object.

solution:

F = mg (sin θ)
15 N = m (9.81)(sin37)
15 N = m (9.81)(0.6018)
15 N = m (5.9038)
m = 15 / 5.9038
= 2.541 kg

## 2.5.2 Force acting against inertia

• Inertia is a Latin word for laziness.
• Inertia is a nature of human to react against or to resist any
change in its motion.
• Can be defined as the tendency of an object to maintain its state
of rest, or if moving, to continue its motion in a straight line.

19
F = ma

with:

F = Force
m = mass
a = acceleration

Example 2.7:

An object move from its resting condition till it reached the velocity of 2
m/s in 3 second. Calculate them minimum amount of force needed by the
object to resist the inertia.

5 kg

solution:

acceleration, a = v-u
t
= (2 – 0)m/s
3s
= 0.6667 m/s2

F = ma
= (5kg) (0.6667)
= 3.3333 N

Example 2.8:

## A table with a mass of 20 kg is drag by a 130N force on a plain surface.

Calculate the acceleration occurred in the situation.

solution:

F = ma

20
130 N = (20kg)(a)
a = 130/20
= 6.5 m/s2

Example 2.9:

reaches 3 m/s2?

solution:

F = ma
= (12)(3)
= 36 N
Example 2.10:

## Given is an object of 4 kg and beginning velocity of 0 m/s. the object

reaches 2 m/s in 3 seconds. Find the force acting on the object.

4kg

3saat
solution:

F = ma
= (4)(v-u)/t
= (4)(2-0)/3
= (4)(2/3)
= (4)(0.6667)
= 2.68 N

## 2.5 Equilibrium Force

• A number of forces may act on an object.
• The object is in equilibrium if the net force (resultant of all the force)
acting on it is zero, means forces that act on the object are balanced in
all direction.
• When an object is in equilibrium, the body is:
(a) Static (stationary) – For an object to be static (not moving), a =
0
Resultant force, F = ma

21
= m (0)
=0
(b) Moving with uniform velocity – For an object moving with
constant velocity, u = v ;
Acceleration, a = =0
v−v
t
Resultant force, F = ma
= m (0)
=0

## 2.5 Forces in vector diagram

• Characteristic of vector:
– Represented by an arrow
magnitud A B

## direction Written as vector AB

– Has
Horizontal
Vertical component
component

vector

22
– Can be resolved an resulted using analysis method or graphical
method

A B

## Vector AB + vector BC = vector AC

AC is a vector resulting from BC and AB

## 2.5 Using vector diagram to calculate force

• There are 2 ways in calculation forces which are:
– graph method
– calculation/ analysis method

D C

S
S sin θ

A S kos θ B

FAB = FX = S kos θ
FAB = FY = S sin θ

## Resulting force, S = √ [(FX)2 + (FY)2]

tan θ = Fy/Fx

23
2.8.1 Resolving forces
• a force acting in one direction that consist both x and y axis can
be resolved using the calculation method shown in the diagram
above
• meaning the force can be resolved into y-axis and x-axis
• to confirm whether the calculation on resolving force is correct,
the resolved forces can be resulted to get the same amount
acting in the same direction

Example 2.11:
Resolve the force given below using calculation/analysis method.

80N

60o
0o

Solution:

## For x-axis use F cos θ

Fx = 80 N (cos 60o)
= 80 N (0.5)
= 40 N

## For y- axis use F sin θ

Fy = 80 N (sin 60o)
= 80 N (0.8660)
= 69.28 N

69.28N

40N

24
2.8.1 Resulting forces
• forces acting in direction of x-axis and y-axis can be resulted

Example 2.12:
Taking resolved forces from Example 10 combine the forces into one
force. Force should be 80N acting at 60o.
69.28N

40N
Solution:

## Use the formula, S = √ [(FX)2 + (FY)2]

= √ [(402) + (69.282)]
= √ (1600 + 4799.7184)
= √ 6399.7184
= 79.889N

tan θ = Fy/Fx
tan θ = 69.28 / 40
tan θ = 1.732
θ = tan-1 1.732
= 60o

## 2.8.1 Usage of resolving and resulting forces

• If more than 1 force acting in x direction and y direction, resulting
method and resolving method must be used together to determine
the amount of forces and the direction of the force.

Example 2.13:

## Diagram shows forces acting on an object. Using analysis method and

graph method, calculate the resulting force acting on the object. Compare
15N

20N 60o

25
12N 10N

solution:

analysis method:

## i) label or mark each forces given:

F3=15N
F1=20N 60o

F2=12N F4=10N

ii) resolve each force acting between x-axis and y-axis into each x and y
components.

F3y = F3 sin θ
= 15 sin 60
= 15 (0.8660) F3=15N
= 12.9904 N
60o

F3x = F3 cos θ
= 15 cos 60
= 15 (0.5)
= 7.5 N

F3y = 12.9904 N

F3x = 7.5 N
F1=20N

F2=12N F4=10N

## iv) calculate the sum of forces acting in x direction and y direction.

∑ Fx = - F1 - F2 + F3x + F4
= - 20 N -12 N + 7.5 N + 10 N
= - 14.5 N

∑ Fy = F3y
= 12.9904 N

26
v) draw out the x and y forces. Make sure there is only 1 force for x-
direction and 1 force for y-direction.

Fy = 12.9904 N

Fx = -14.5 N

## vi) using the analysis formula, calculate the resulting force

S = √ [(FX)2 + (FY)2]
= √ [(-14.5)2+ (12.9904)2]
= √ ( 210.25 + 168.75)
= √ (279)
= 19.468 N

## vii) calculate the degree of acting force

tan θ = Fy/Fx
= 12.9904 N
14.5 N
= 0.89589
θ = tan-1 0.89589
= 41.8568o

## viii) draw the resulting force diagram

Fy = 12.9904 N
S = 19.468 N

41.86o

Fx = -14.5 N

27
Graph method:

i) separate all forces acting on the object and determine the directions
of actions. Use the nearest force to x-axis in fist sector as
reference. Make sure the following forces is in order.
F3=15N
F1180
=20No F2=12No
o
180 F4=10N
60 360o

y: 1 cm : 1N
x: 1 cm : 1N

## iii) use a force nearest to x-axis in first sector as reference force

iv) draw each force on the graph paper

y: 1 cm : 5N
x: 1 cm : 5N

180o 180o

360o

60o

v) use a ruler and determine the net force according to your scale

28
vi) use protractor to measure the direction of resulted force.

## ii) resolve F3=6 N

every force acting at point O into each horizontal and vertical
components

F1=15 N

50o O

## F3x = F1 cos θ 55o O

= 6 cos 55o F3y = F1 sin θ
= 15 (0.5736) = 15 sin 55o
= 8.604 N F3=6 N = 15 (0.8192)
= 12.288 N

## iii) draw out diagram of resolved forces

F1y = 11.49 N

30
F1x = 9.6418 N O F2 =12 N
x
F3x = 8.604 N

F3y = 12.288 N

## iv) calculate the sum of forces acting in x- axis and y-axis

∑ Fx = - F1x – F3x + F2
= - 9.6418 N -8.604 N + 12 N
= - 6.2458 N

= 11.49 N – 12.288 N
= - 0.798 N

x
Fx = 6.2458 N
Fy = 0.798 N

## vi) use the analysis method to calculate the resulting force

S = √ [(FX)2 + (FY)2]
=√ [(-6.2458)2+ (-0.798)2]
= √ ( 41.705 + 0.6368)
= √ (42.3418)
= 6.5071 N
vii) determine the force direction

tan θ = Fy/Fx
= 0.798 N
6.2458 N
= 0.12357
θ = tan-1 0.12357
= 7.0442o

## viii) sketch the diagram of resulted force

S = 6.5071N

Example 2.15:

A pack of five Artic wolves are exerting five different forces upon the
carcass of a 500kg dead polar bear. A top view showing the magnitude
and direction of each of the five individual forces is shown in the diagram.
Use a scaled vector diagram to determine the net force acting upon the
polar bear. Then compute the acceleration of the polar bear (both
magnitude and direction).

Solution:

The scaled vector diagram for this problem would look like the following:

2.8 Definition of moment
• Product of the force and the perpendicular distance of its line of action
from that point.
• Unit of moment is Nm

## Moment = Force x Perpendicular distance

force , F
distance, d
Moment = force x distance
= Fd

## 2.8 Principle of moment

• A force applied on certain point of an object with a distance from
another point causing it to pivot, twist or rotate.
• Moment in equilibrium is:
• Sum of moment rotating clockwise = sum of moment rotating
anticlockwise

## 2.8 Condition of static equilibrium of a rigid body

Suppose several forces acting on a rigid body keep it in static equilibrium.
To maintain the body in this state, follow the following condition:
i) Condition 1:
• In order to have translation, the net force acting through the center
of the mass of the body must be zero. Hence, we have

∑ Fx = 0 and ∑ Fy = 0
ii) Condition 2:
• The forces acting on the body could cause it to rotate if these
forces produced a net moment on the body about any point or axis.
Hence, if the body does not rotate the total moment about any
point or axis must be zero. Hence, we have

∑M=0

2 LINEAR MOTION
3.1 Analyzing linear motion:
3.1.1 Define distance and displacement.

43
• Distance is also called as length or distance
• one-dimensional quantity representing the separation between two
defined points

## Unit To convert to Conversely,

(and symbol) meters, multiply by: multiply by:
kilometer (km) 1000 0.001
centimeter (cm) 0.01 100
millimeter (mm) 0.001 1000
micrometer or
10-6 106
micron (µ)
nanometer (nm) 10-9 109
Angstrom (Ä) 10-10 1010
• Symbolized as d or s
• The standard unit of displacement in the International System of Units
(SI) is the meter (m).
• Distance is usually measured or defined along a straight line
• Displacement is sometimes measured or defined along curved paths
• When expressing large or small distances, prefix multipliers are
attached to the meter. The table below shows the most common
alternative displacement units and their relationship to the meter.

## 3.1.1 Define speed and velocity

• Distance traveled per unit time
• Scalar quantity
• Unit of speed is (m/s)

traveled time

## min of speed = sum of traveled distance

sum of traveled time

Example 3.1:

44
A man drives his car along a road with a distance of 80km. Time taken to
travel that far is 1 hour and 20 minutes. Using information given, calculate
the speed of the car.

solution::
velocity, v = distance traveled
traveled time
= . 80km .
(80/60)jam
= 80 km
1.33jam
= 60.15 km/jam

## 3.1.1 Define acceleration and deceleration

• Define as the rate at which an object's velocity changes with
time
• Vector quantity
• Unit of acceleration is ms-2.
• Negative acceleration is also known as deceleration

## Acceleration, a = (v) – (u)

(t)
where:

a = acceleration
v = final velocity
u = initial velocity
t = time

Example 3.2:

## A driver is driving his vehicle at a velocity of 30m/s when he suddenly

accelerate his vehicle to 60 m/s. It takes 3 seconds for the vehicle to reach
60m/s. Determine the amount of acceleration of the vehicle in condition
mentioned.

solution:

## Initial velocity = 30 m/s

Final velocity = 60 m/s
Time taken = 3 saat

## acceleration = (v) – (u)

(t)

45
= 60 m/s – 30 m/s
3s
= 30m/s
3
= 10m/s2
3.1 Linear motion in graph
• Motion of an object along straight line with acceleration (a), initial
velocity (u), final velocity (v) and time can be shown in a graphical
diagram.

Velocity, v (m/s)

## Constant acceleration, a a=v–u

t deceleration, -a

Initial velocity, u

time (s)
0 t

## 3.1 Equation of motion

• From graph velocity vs. time, displacement can be obtained by calculating
the area under the graph:
s = area of cuboids + area of triangles
= ut + ½ ( v – u )t
= ut + ½ vt – ½ ut
= ½ vt + ½ ut
= ½ (v + u ) t
• From equation a = ( v – u ) / t derive t = (v – u ) / a
• By replacing equation s = ½ (v + u ) t into the previous equation will
create:
s = ½ ( v + u ) (v – u ) / a
= (v+u)(v–u)
2a
2as = v2 – u2
v2 = u2 + 2as
• Other equation can be used in this linear motion situation are:
s = ut + ½ at2 and

v = u + at

with,
v = initial velocity

46
u = final velocity
t = period of time
s = displacement
a = acceleration

Example 3.3:

## A car moved from its static condition to reach its destination in 45

minutes. Its final velocity is 120 km/j. from the information, calculate:

## a) Acceleration of the car in term of m/s

b) Displacement traveled by the car in term of m

solution:

## a) Initial velocity (u) = 0 m/s

Final velocity (v) = 120 km/j
= 120 000 / 3600 s
= 33.33 m/s
time traveled = 45 minute
= 45 (60)
= 2700 s

## acceleration = final velocity – initial velocity

traveled time
a = v–u
t
= (33.33 – 0)
2700
= 0.01234 m/s2.

b) v2 = u2 + 2as
2as = v2 - u2
s = v2 - u2
2a
= ( 33.33 )2 - ( 0)2
2 ( 0.01234)
= 1110.89
0.02468
= 45011.75 m

Example 3.4:

## An airplane accelerates down a runway at 3.20 m/s2 for 32.8 s until it

finally lifts off the ground. Determine the distance traveled before takeoff.

solution:

47
s = ut + ½ at2
= (0 m/s)(32.8 s)+ 0.5(3.20 m/s2)(32.8 s)2
= 1720 m
Example 3.5:
A boy rides his bike with a constant velocity of 5 m/s2. His velocity at that
time is 8 m/s. Determine:
a) his velocity after 16 second
b) distance traveled by the boy

solution:

## a) initial velocity (u) = 8 m/s

acceleration (a) = 5 m/s2
time (t) = 16 second

## acceleration = initial velocity – final velocity

traveled time
a = v - u
t
5m/s2 = ( v - 8 m/s )
16s
(5 m/s2)(16s) = ( v - 8 m/s )
80 m/s = v - 8 m/s
v = 88 m/s

b) v2 = u2 + 2as
( 88 )2 = ( 8 )2 + 2 ( 5 )(s)
7744 = 64 + 10 s
7744 - 64 = 10s
7680 = s
10
s = 768 m

Example 3.6:

## A vehicle moves with an acceleration of 1.2 m/s2 . what is the velocity of

the car after 30 second? Also, determine the distance traveled by the car.
Used both graph and equation method.

solution:

## given a = 1.2 m/s2

t = 30 seconds
u = 0

48
find : v and s

a) equation method

v = u + at
= 0 + 1.2(30)
= 36 m/s

s = ut + ½ at2
= (0)(30) + ½ (1.2)(30)2
= 540 m

v(m/s)

v=?

a = 1.2 m/s2

t (s)
t1 = 30 seconds

from graph:

## acceleration, a = slope on graph

a = (v – u) / t
1.2 = (v – 0) / (30)
v = 30 (1.2)
= 36 m/s

s = ½ (v – u) t
= ½ (36 – 0)(30)
= 15 (36)
= 540 m

49
Example 3.7:

## A car moved from 4 m/s to 25 m/s with constant acceleration of 2 m/s2.

this condition continued until the car was stopped with deceleration of 2
m/s2. Sum of distance traveled by the car is 5 km. using both equation and
graph method, calculate:

## a) distance during the acceleration

b) distance traveled during deceleration
c) total time traveled by the car

solution:

graph method:

25m/s

2m/s2
-2m/s2
4m/s

0m/s
t1=10.5sec t3=12.5sec
j1=152.25m j3=156.25m
5000m

## acceleration = final velocity – final velocity

time traveled
a = (v – u)/t
2 m/s2 = (25 – 4)
t
= (21)
2
t = 10.5 seconds

## distance = area under the graph

= ½ (10.5)(25-4) + (4)(10.5)
= ½ (10.5)(21) + (42)
= 110.25 + 42
= 152.25 m

50
b) distance traveled during deceleration

## acceleration = final velocity – final velocity

time traveled
a = (v – u)/t
Negative (-ve) symbol
-2m/sindicates
2
= deceleration
(0 – 25)
t
t = -25
-2
= 12.5 seconds

= ½ (12.5)(25)
= 156.25 m

## distance = area under graph

5000 m = distance 1 + distance 2 + distance 3
= 152.25 + (25)(t2) + 156.25
= 308.5 + 25 t2
t2 = (5000 – 308.25)
25
= 187.66 second

total time = t1 + t2 + t3
= (10.5 + 187.66 + 12.5)sec
= 210.66sseconds

equation method:

given:
a = 2 m/s2
v1 = 25 m/s
u1 = 4 m/s
-a = -2m/s2
v2 = 0 m/s
u2 = 25 m/s

## a) distance travel during acceleration

s = ut + ½ at2
find t,
a = (v – u)/t
2 = (25 – 4)/t
t = 21/2
= 10.5 sec
so,

51
s = ut + ½ at2
= (4)(10.5) + ½ (2)(10.5)2
= 42 + 110.25
= 152.25 m

s = ut + ½ at2

## acceleration, a = final velocity – final velocity

time traveled
a = (v – u)/t
2
-2m/s = (0 – 25)
t
= -25
-2
= 12.5 sec

so,

s = ut + ½ at2
= (25)(12.5) + ½ (-2)(12.5)2
= 312.5 + (-156.25)
= 156.25 m

## c) total time traveled by the car

s = ut + ½ at2
4691.5 = 25(t) + ½ (0)(t) 2
= 25t + 0
= 25 t

t = 4691.5/25
= 187.66 s

so,

= 210.66 s

## 3.1 Analyzing motion graph.

3.1.1 Determine distance, displacement and velocity from:

52
i) displacement-time graph
• Consider a car moving with a constant, rightward (+) velocity of 10 m/s.

• If the position-time data for such a car were graphed, the resulting graph
would look like the below. Note that a motion with constant, positive
velocity results in a line of constant and positive slope when plotted as a
displacement-time graph.

• consider a car moving with a changing, rightward (+) velocity – that is, a
car that is moving rightward and speeding up or accelerating

• If the position-time data for such a car were graphed, the resulting graph
would look like the graph at the right. Note that a motion with changing,
positive velocity results in a line of changing and positive slope when
plotted as a position-time graph.

## i) velocity- time graph

• Consider a car moving with a constant, rightward (+) velocity of +10 m/s.
A car moving with a constant velocity is a car moving with zero
acceleration.

53
• If the velocity-time data for such a car were graphed, the resulting graph
would look like the graph at the right. Note that a motion with constant,
positive velocity results in a line of zero slope (a horizontal line has zero
slope) when plotted as a velocity-time graph.

• Now consider a car moving with a rightward (+), changing velocity – that
is, a car that is moving rightward and speeding up or accelerating. Since
the car is moving in the positive direction and speeding up, it is said to
have a positive acceleration.

• If the velocity-time data for such a car were graphed, the resulting graph
would look like the graph at the right. Note that a motion with changing,
positive velocity results in a diagonal line when plotted as a velocity-time
graph. The slope of this line is positive, corresponding to the positive
acceleration. In addition, only positive velocity values are plotted,
corresponding to a motion with positive velocity.

3 WORK, ENERGY, POWER AND EFFICIENCY
3.1 Define work using W = Fd
• Work is defined as force acting upon an object to cause a displacement in
the direction of the applied force.
• In order for a force to qualify as having done work on an object, there
must be a displacement and the force must cause the displacement.
• In our daily lives, work refers to almost any kind of physical or mental
activity.
• Work will not happen if force applied not causing displacement such as
pushing a wall as hard as we can.
• Work also does not happen if displacement occurred without applying
force such as a waiter carrying a meal to a table.
• The SI unit of work is Joule (J).

## 3.1 Work application

• Force causes displacement

W = Fd

Example 4.1:

## A student lifts a 12 kg bag onto his shoulder through a vertical distance of

1.5m. What is the work done by the student?

solution:

## work, W = Force x Distance Force, F = mass x gravity

F = mg
Remember, g = 9.81 m/s2 if not given otherwise
56
W = Fd
W = (12 kg x 9.81) (1.5m)
W = (117.72N) (1.5m)
W = 176.58 J

Example 4.2:

A tractor was pulled from point A to point B. The distance between these
2 points is 5 m. Minimum force needed to pull the tractor is 5000N.
Calculate the work done to pull the tractor from point A to point B.

solution:

## Work, W = Force x distance

W= 5000 N x 5 m
W= 25000 Nm
W= 25000 J @ 25 KJ

Example 4.3:

## A mall worker pulls a 50 kg stock of meat up a plane inclined at 30o to the

horizontal shown in figure below. If the length of the plane is 4.5 m,
calculate the work done by the worker in pulling the stock to the top of the
plane.

30o

solution:
Force acting on inclined plane:
W = Fd F = mg sin θ
W = (mg sin θ) d
W = [(50 x 9.81) sin 30o] x 4.5
W = [(490.5) (0.5)] x 4.5
W = 245.25 x 4.5 Using calculator:
W = 1103.625 J sin 30o = 0.5

## • force causes rotation

W=τxθ θ rad = θ o x . π .
W = Fd x θrad 180o

Example 4.4:

57
Figure below shows a 40N force being applied on a spanner to loosen a
bolt. Length of the spanner is 0.02m. Once applied, the force caused the
bolt to rotate at 45o. Using all the information, calculate the work done to
loosen the bolt.

58
solution:

τ = force x distance
= 40N x 0.02 m
= 0.8 Nm

59
60
45o = 0.08 Nm x [ 45o x (Л /
180o)]
= 0.628 Nm @ J

Example 4.5:

A plumber did 300J of work to loosen a big pipe. Once loosen, the pipe
rotated at 60o. Calculate force applied by the plumber to loosen the pipe if
the length of the tool used is 0.50m.

solution:

300 = (F x d) x [60o x (π/180)]
= (F x 0.5) x (60o x 0.017456)
= 0.5F x 1.0473
= 0.5237F
300 = F

F = 572.847N

## 3.1 Define energy

• Capacity to do work
• Enables useful work to be done.
• SI unit for energy is joule (J)
• Energy has many different forms that can be converted to one
another.
• Work is done when energy is converted.

## 3.1.1 Define kinetic energy

• Energy possesses by an object due to its motion.
• Any moving object has kinetic energy.
• Depends on 2 variables:

## Kinetic Energy, EK = ½ mass x velocity2

= ½ mv2

i) mass of object
• the greater the mass of an object, the greater the kinetic
energy possesses by it
ii) velocity of the object
• the faster an object moves, the bigger the kinetic energy
possesses by it

61
Example 4.6:

A car with a mass of 1200kg moves with velocity of 25 m/s. calculate the
kinetic energy possessed by the car from the movement.

solution:

## Kinetic energy, EK = ½ mv2

= ½ (1200) (25)2
= 375 000 J @ 375 kJ

Example 4.7:

Determine the kinetic energy of a 1000kg roller coaster car that is moving
with a speed of 20.0 m/s.

solution:

## Kinetic energy. EK = ½ mv2

= ½ (1000) (20)2
= 200 000 J @ 200 kJ

Example 4.8:

Missy Diwater, the former platform diver for the Ringling Brother's Circus
had a kinetic energy of 15 000 J just prior to hitting the bucket of water. If
Missy's mass is 50 kg, then what is her speed?

solution:

## Kinetic energy, EK = ½ mv2

15 000 = ½ (50) (v2)
= 25 v2
15 000 = v2
25
24.495 m/s = v

Example 4.9:

A 750kg compact car moving at 100 km/hr has approximately 290 000
Joules of kinetic energy. What is the kinetic energy of the same car if it is
moving at 50 km/hr?

Solution:
100 km x 1 hr x 1 min x 1000m
hr 60 min 60 s 1 km
62 = 27.7778 m/s
50 km/hr = 13.8889 m/s
Kinetic energy, EK = ½ mv2
290 000 = ½ m (27.7778)2
751.678kg =m
EK = ½ mv2
= ½ (751.678) (13.8889)2
= 72 499 J
3.1.1 Define gravitational potential energy
• Potential energy is the stored energy of position possessed by
an object.
• Unit for gravitational energy is Nm @ J
• Depends on 2 variable:

## Potential Energy, EP = mass x gravity x height

= mgh

i) mass of object
• More massive objects have greater gravitational potential
energy.
• Based on figures below, object A stored more than object B
because mass of object A is greater than object B.

Object A Object B
100kg 50kg

5m 5m

Example 4.10:

A cat is sitting on a tree branch with height of h. Say that the mass of the
cat is 2 kg and the height of the tree branch is 2 m. calculate the
gravitational potential energy possessed by the cat at the moment.

solution:

## Gravitational potential energy, EP = mass x gravity x height

= mgh
= (2) (9.81) (2)
= 39.24 J

Example 4.11:

While the cat in the previous example sit on the tree branch, came another
cat with a weight of 5 kg sat right next to it. Now, calculate the
gravitational potential energy possessed by the second cat.
solution:

## Gravitational potential energy, EP = mgh

= (4) (9.81) (2)
= 78.48 J

Example 4.12:

Three boxes of a same size are laid on a table as shown in figure below.
The first box labeled as Box A is empty. Box B instead is filled with
shredded paper while Box C is filled with beach sand. Which of these
boxes possesses the most gravitational potential energy and which
Box A Box B Box C

solution:

65
Box C containing beach sand possesses the most gravitational potential
energy as it has the greatest mass comparing to all other boxes. Box A
however possesses the least of it as it contains on cotton or the least mass.

## ii) height of the object to which it is raised

• the higher that an object is elevated, the greater the
gravitational potential energy
• based on figures given, object A possesses greater
potential energy compared to object B due to its
difference in height even though both objects have
same mass

66
50kg

67
Example 4.13:

## Based on the figure given, determine which object possesses more

gravitational potential energy.
Box B

68
50kg

69
Box A

solution:

## Gravitational potential energy, EP = mass x gravity x height

Box A, Box B,
EP = mgh EP = mgh
= 50 x 9.81 x 4 = 50 x 9.81 x 7
= 1962 J = 3433.5 J

Example 4.14:

## Jack Sparrow was in a mission to locate a treasure on an island. He had to

climb a cliff as the treasure was laid on top of it. Now, calculate the
gravitational potential gravity possessed by Jack Sparrow as he reached ¼,
½ and ¾ of the cliff. Also calculate the potential energy when jack reach
the top of the cliff. Jack’s mass is 72 kg and the cliff is 500m high.

solution:

## Gravitational potential energy, EP = mass x gravity x height

¼ of the cliff,
EP = mgh
= 72 x 9.81 x (¼ x 500)
= 72 x 9.81 x 125
= 88290 J

½ of the cliff,
EP = mgh
= 72 x 9.81 x (½ x 500)
= 72 x 9.81 x 250
= 176580 J

¾ of the cliff,
EP = mgh

70
= 72 x 9.81 x (¾ x 375)
= 72 x 9.81 x 125
= 264870 J

## Top of the cliff,

EP = mgh
= 72 x 9.81 x 500)
= 353160 J

## 4.4 Principle of Conservation of Energy

• The principle states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed.
• Energy can be converted from one form to another.
• Example of energy conversion is electric energy to kinetic.

4.5 Energy transfer from potential energy to kinetic energy and the opposite
• Object of any mass falling vertically downwards from static , its loss in
potential energy is equal to the amount of kinetic energy gained, assuming
that no energy is lost during the process.

mgh = ½ mv2

71
• If object is rebound to any height after hitting the ground and left it, its
maximum kinetic energy while moving upwards will be equal to its
potential energy at its maximum height.

½ mv2 = mgh

• For an object that slides down a friction free slope, its potential energy is
equal to its kinetic energy at the bottom.

mgh = ½ mv2

Example 4.15:

## A steel ball of a mass 2 kg is released from a height of 8 m from the

ground. On hitting the ground, the ball rebounds to a height of 3.2m.
Assuming there is no other energy leaves or enters the system during the
process, find:

## a) the kinetic energy of the ball as it reaches the ground.

b) the velocity of the ball on reaching the ground.
c) the kinetic energy of the ball as it leaves the ground on
rebound.
d) the velocity of the ball on rebound.

solution:

## a) the kinetic energy of the ball as it reaches the ground.

EK = mgh
= 2 (9.81) (8)
= 156.96 J v 2 = u 2 + 2as
or, v 2 = (0)2 + (2) (9.81) (8
v 2 = 156.96
EK = ½ mv2
= ½ (2) 156.96
= 156.96 J

## b) the velocity of the ball on reaching the ground.

EK = ½ mv2
156.96J = ½ (2) v2
156.96J = v2
v = 12.2866 m/s

72
c) the kinetic energy of the ball as it leaves the ground on
rebound.

## Kinetic energy of the ball as it leaves the ground is equal to

its maximum potential energy on rebound

EK = mgh
= 2 (9.81) (3.2)
= 62.784 J

## d) the velocity of the ball on rebound

EK = ½ mv2
62.784J = ½ (2) v2
62.784J = v2
v = 7.9236 m/s

Example 4.16:

## An object of 30 kg mass was lifted as high as 3 m from the ground and

was let to fall under the gravitational reaction. Calculate the gravitational
potential energy and the kinetic energy possessed by the object under
these situations:

## a) before it was let to fall

b) 1 meter under free fall
c) right after its touched the ground

solution:

## a) before it was let to fall

EP = mgh
= 30 x 9.81 x 3
= 882.9 J

EK = ½ mv2
= ½ (30)(0)
= 0
b) 1 meter under free fall

EP = mgh
= 30 x 9.81 x 2
= 588.6 J

EK = ½ mv2
= ½ (30) (v2)

73
Obtain v from the formulae v2 = u2 + 2as

v2 = u2 + 2as
= 0 + 2 (9.81) (1)
= 19.62 m/s

EK = ½ mv2
= ½ (30) (v2)
= ½ (30) (19.62)
= 294.3 J

EP = mgh
= 30 (9.81) (0)
= 0

EK = ½ mv2
= ½ (30) (v2)

## Obtain v from the formulae v2 = u2 + 2as

v2 = u2 + 2as
= 0 + 2 (9.81) (3)
= 58.86 m/s

EK = ½ mv2
= ½ (30) (v2)
= ½ (30) (58.86)
= 882.9 J

## 4.6 Define power using P = W/t

• Power is the rate of at which work is done.
• It is the work/time ratio.

Power, P = Work, W
Time, T
Means,

74
Time
Or,

## Power = Force x displacement

Time Velocity = displacement

Example 4.17:

## A tractor was pulled by another tractor as far as 5 m from point A to point

B. amount of force needed to pull the tractor was 5000N. It took 2 minutes
for the tractor to reach point B from point A. calculate the power done.

Solution:

W = Fxd

= 25000 Nm
= 25000 J

Power, P = Work

P = W
t
= 25000 Nm
(2 x 60) s

Example 4.18:

## Approximately 3 minutes is needed to bring 80kg of raw mineral from

through a mine shaft to the surface. The depth of the mine is 90m. find the
power used for the process.

solution:

W = (F) (d)
= (m) (g) (h)

75
= (80 x 9.81) (90m)
= 70632.0 Nm

P = W
t
= 70632 Nm
(3 x 60) s
= 70632 Nm

= 39.238 Nm/s

Example 4.19:

## 40N of force applied on a spanner to loosen a nut. Length of the spanner is

0.02 m and 45o angle was produced as the loosed. Time for the whole
process to take part was 4 seconds. Calculate power done in the process.

Solution:

calculate τ:

τ = Force x displacement
= Fxd
= 40N x 0.02 m
= 0.8 Nm

= 0.08 Nm x Л /4 rad
= 0.628 Nm

P = W
t
= 0.628 Nm
4s
= 0.157 Nm/s @ W

Example 4.20:

## If little Nellie Newton lifts her 40 kg body a distance of 0.25 meters in 2

seconds, then what is the power delivered by little Nellie's biceps?

Solution:

W = (F) (d)
= (m) (g) (h)
= (40 x 9.81) (0.25m)

76
= 98.1 Nm

P = W
t
= 98.1 Nm
2s
= 49.05 Nm/s @ W

Example 4.21:

## An escalator is used to move 20 passengers every minute from the first

floor of a department store to the second. The second floor is located
5meters above the first floor. The average passenger's mass is 60 kg.
Determine the power requirement of the escalator in order to move this
number of passengers in this amount of time.

## W = (F) (d) Mass:

= (m) (g) (h) 1 passenger = 60kg
= [(60 x 20) x 9.81] (5m) 20 passengers = 20 x 60
= (1200 x 9.81) (5) = 1200 kg
= 11772 x 5
= 58860 Nm

P = W

Time:
= 58860 Nm 1 minute = 60seconds

= 981 Nm/s @ W

Example 4.22:

## A car moves at a constant velocity of 72 km/hr. find the power generated

by the car if the force friction that acts on it is 1500N.

solution:

Power, P = Work, W
Time, t
= Force, F x displacement, d

77
Time, t
= Force, F x displacement, d
Time, t Unit conversion:
= Force, F x velocity, v = 72km x 1000m x 1 hr x 1 m
= Fxv hr 1km 60min 60
= 1500 N x 20 m/s = 72 x 1000m x 1 x 1
= 30 000 W 60 x 60s
= 20 m/s

## 4.7 Explain efficiency, efficiency = X output x 100%

X input

• Efficiency is defined as the ratio of the useful output energy to the total
energy put into the machine.

## efficiency = energy output x 100%

energy input
=
work output x 100%
work input

## • There is no machine with efficiency of 100% as energy is always wasted

in overcoming friction and in moving parts of the machine.
• Efficiency needs to be maximized in order to conserver resources.

Example 4.23:

## A force of 250 N used to raise a load of 1000N through a distance of 5 m

in a pulley system. If the force moves through a distance of 30m, find
a) the work done in raising the load
b) the work done by the effort
c) the efficiency of the pulley system

solution:

=Fxd
= 1000 N x 5 m
= 5000 J

## b) the work done by the effort

78
Work, W = Force, F x displacement, d
=Fxd
= 250 N x 30 m
= 7500 N

ions, but the behaviors of these particles differ in the three phases. The
following figure illustrates the microscopic differences.

## 5.2 Determine density of material and relative density/specific gravity

81
i) Density
• Density is a measure of how much mass is contained in a given
unit volume (density = mass/volume).
• It is usually expressed in kg/m3.
• In other word if mass is a measure of how much ‘stuff’ there is in
an object, density is a measure of how tightly that ‘stuff’ is packed
together.
• Before we can calculate density we have to know how to calculate
the volume of substance
• Unit of density is kg/m3
Density = mass
Volume
= m/v

substance density
(kg/m3)
Water 1000
Ice 917
Alcohol 790
Oxygen 1.43
Air 1.29

A = 4 Л j2 V = 4/3 Л j3

## ii) relative density

• also known as specific density

82
• Specific gravity is the density of a substance divided by the density
of water.
• Since water has a density of 1 gram/cm3, and since all of the units
cancel.

ρ specific = ρ substance
ρ water
Example 5.1:

A big box with has mass of 20N and size of 30cm x 30cm x 30cm. Using
all the information, calculate the density of the box.

solution:

given,
W = 20N
size = 30cm x 30cm x 30cm
= 0.3m x 0.3m x 0.3m

so,
W = mg
30N = m (9.81)
mass ,m = 30/(9.81)
= 2.04kg

= 0.027m3

density, ρ = m/v
= 2.04kg/0.027m3
= 75.57 kgm-3

Example 5.2:

## A cube with density of 2300kgm-3 was located on a table. Weight of the

cube is 285 N. determine the mass and the volume of the cube.

solution:

W = mg
= 285 N
= 285 kgms-2
mass, m = W/(9.81)
= 285 kgms-2 / 9.81ms-2
= 29.05 kg

83
volume ,V = m/ρ
= 29.05kg / 2300kgm-3
= 0.0126 m3

## 5.3 Define pressure, p = F/A

• Pressure in Pascal’s (Pa) is defined as force (N) per unit area (m2)

Pressure = Force
Area
p = F

Example 5.3:

## How many Pascal’s are exerted by an elephant of weight 50 000 N

standing on his feet of total area 0.8 m2?

## What pressure is exerted by an apple of weight 1 N sitting on an area of 20

mm2?
20mm 2 =

p = 50 000 Pa 1000000
= 0.00002 m2

Example 5.5:

A fruit seller uses a knife with a sharp edge and a cross-sectional area of
0.5 cm2 to cut open a watermelon.

84
a) If the force applied on a knife is 18 N, what is the pressure
exerted by the knife on the watermelon?
b) After that, he cuts open a papaya using the same knife by
exerting a pressure of 2.7 x 105 Pa. calculate the magnitude of
force applied to cut the papaya.

Solution:

## a) If the force applied on a knife is 18 N, what is

the pressure exerted by the knife on the
watermelon?

Pressure = Force =0

p = 18N . =0

p = 360 000 Pa =0

## b) After that, he cuts open a papaya using the same knife by

exerting a pressure of 2.7 x 105 Pa. calculate the magnitude of
force applied to cut the papaya.

Pressure = Force

## 5.3.1 Application of pressure

i) high pressure
• cutting tools:
Small force applied on a very small area of the knife edge
produce a larger pressure
• shoes:
Spikes running shoes can provide a better grip for athletes
running on a track because these shoes have spikes that
produce large pressure to pierce the track.

i) low pressure
• heavy machine:

85
Bulldozers and heavy machineries usually have large area
of surface to move them to decrease the pressure exerted on
the ground.
• Buildings:
Tall buildings often build on large area of surface to
decrease the pressure exerted on the ground

## 5.4 Define pressure in liquid, p = ρgh

• The pressure at any point in a liquid is due to the weight
of the liquid above that point.
• Figure of Pascal’s vases shows that water in each tube
rises to the same height, h.
• This situation shows that a liquid always finds its own
level.
• At the same level or depth, the liquid pressure must be
the same; otherwise liquid will flow to equalize any
pressure differences.
Water
level

## Water finds its own level

5.4.1 Depth to pressure in liquid
• Pressure at any point in a liquid acts equally in all directions.
• Liquid pressure increases with depth.

Water jet

## Liquid pressure increases with depth

5.4.1 Density to pressure in liquid

86
• Pressure of liquid increases with density.
• Water and cooking oil make a different pressure as the
density of cooking oil is less than water.

Example 5.6:

A solid metal sinks slowly in 500m water. Calculate the pressure exerted
by the water to the metal when the metal reaches the depth of 100m,
200m, 300m, 400m and the bottom. What if the metal sinks in 500m of
oil? Explain the difference of your answers. (Density of oil = 800 kgm-3).

solution:

at 100 m,
Pwater = ρgh Poil = ρgh
= 1000 x 9.81 x 100 = 800 x 9.81 x 100

at 200 m,
Pwater = ρgh Poil = ρgh
= 1000 x 9.81 x 200 = 800 x 9.81 x 200

Pwater = ρgh Poil = ρgh
= 1000 x 9.81 x 300 = 800 x 9.81 x 300

at 400 m,
Pwater = ρgh Poil = ρgh
= 1000 x 9.81 x 400 = 800 x 9.81 x 400
= 3924000 Pa = 3139200 Pa

= 1000 x 9.81 x 500 = 800 x 9.81 x 500
= 4905000 Pa = 3924000 Pa

Explanations:
i) Liquid pressure increases with depth.
ii) Liquid pressure increases with density.

## 5.4.1 Application of pressure of liquid

i) Public water supply system

87
• Due to gravitational pull, water in storage is maintained at a
high pressure and this enables water to flow to houses of
consumers.
• Water tank is usually built atop the roof of each house to
store water and maintain constant water pressure.
ii) The wall of a dam
• Walls of a dam increase in thickness downward.
• A thicker wall is required to withstand greater pressure
since water pressure increases with depth.
i) Fire-fighting hose
• A fire fighter requires a fire hose for directing a water of
very high pressure to put out fire in a high rise building.
• To produce a pressurized water jet, the water is accelerated
by an electric pump before flowing through the fire hose.

## 5.4.1 Pascal’s Principle

• Pressure applied to an enclosed fluid is transmitted
undiminished to every part of the fluid, as well as to the
walls of the container.

## Fluid is transmitted undiminished to every part of the fluid

## 5.4.1 Archimedes’ Principle

• states that a body immersed in a fluid is buoyed up by a
force equal to the weight of the displaced fluid

90
• applies to both floating and submerged bodies and to all
fluids
• It explains not only the buoyancy of ships and other vessels
in water but also the rise of a balloon in the air and the
apparent loss of weight of objects underwater.

## Object buoyancy = weight of water

Example 5.9:

## A piece 27 kg coral with density of 3000 kgm-3 is placed inside an

aquarium filled with water of density 1000kg m-3. Calculate

## a) the volume of water displaced by the coral

b) the apparent loss in weight of the coral
c) the weight of coral in water

solution:

## a) the volume of water displaced by the coral

91
ρ = m
V
V = m
ρ
= 27 kg / 3000 kg m-3
= 0.009m3

## apparent loss in weight in water = weight of water displaced

= V water x ρwater x g
= 0.009 x 1000 x 9.81
= 88.29 N

## weight of coral in air – apparent loss in weight in water

= 27 (9.81) – 88.29
= 264.87 – 88.29
= 176.58 N

## 5.4 Define gas pressure

• Gas pressure is caused by collision of gas molecules on
walls of a container.
• Gases exert pressure in all direction just like liquid.
• When the frequency of collisions of the gas molecules on
the walls of the container increases, the gas pressure
increases.

## 5.4.1 Atmospheric pressure

• Atmospheric pressure happens when the weight of the mass of
the atmosphere exerts pressure on the surface of the Earth.
• The density of air on earth’s surface increases as more air
molecules fall on to it due to gravitational pull.
• Pressure of gas can be calculated by using the expression

p = pa + hρg

where,
pa = atmospheric pressure
h = height difference of liquid column
ρ = density of liquid
g = gravitational field strength
Example 5.10:

92
Water is added into one arm of a U-tube containing some mercury until its
height above the mercury level is 14 cm. petrol is then added carefully into
the other arm of the U-tube until the mercury levels at X and Y in both
arms are the same. It is observed that the petrol column is 17.5 cm high.
Calculate the density of petrol. Given the density of water = 1 000 kgm-3.

hwater ρwater g = ρpetrol
hpetrol
14 x 1000 = ρpetrol
17.5
800 kgm-3 = ρpetrol

## 5.4.1 Application of Atmospheric pressure

• Drinking straw
• when air is sucked out from a drinking straw, the air
pressure inside becomes lower
• then the higher atmospheric pressure acting on the surface
of the drink pushes the drink into the drinking straw and
enables it to be sucked into the mouth.
• Syringe
• when the nozzle is dipped into a liquid and the piston is
pulled up, the pressure is reduced.
• The higher atmospheric pressure acting on surface of the
liquid pushes the liquid into the cylinder
• When the piston is pushed down, the liquid is ejected.

## 5.4.1 Bernoulli’s principle

• This principle states that the pressure of a fluid (liquid or gas)
decreases at the region where the speed of fluid flow increases.

93
• The higher the velocity, the higher the pressure exerted.
• Velocity of fluid increases in narrow space or orifice.
• Pressure will decrease uniformly in uniform velocity water.

5 HEAT AND TEMPERATURE
6.1 Define heat and temperature
• Heat is the amount of thermal energy that can be transferred from one
object to one another.
• Heat is measured in Joules, J.
• Temperature is the degree of hotness of an object.
• Temperature is measured in degree Celsius (oC)

## 6.1 Explain heat transfer

• there are 3 ways to transfer heat :
i) conduction
• A process of transferring heat from a high temperature object
to a lower temperature object.
ii) convection
• Movement of gas from a hot area to colder area.
• Hot liquid or gas will become lighter while cold liquid or gas
will become heavier. This will cause the hot gas to move up
• Heat transfer through wave or ray from one heat source to another
object.

## 6.1 Define heat capacity and specific heat capacity, Q = mcθ

i) Heat capacity
• Heat capacity of a substance is defined as the amount of heat required
to raise its temperature by 1 oC.
• Heat capacity is measured in joules per degree Celsius (J oC-1)

## C = Heat quantity (Q)

Temperature change (θ)
= Q
θ
= J/oC

## ii) Specific heat capacity

• Defined as the heat required raising the temperature of 1 kg of
substance by 1oC.

## c = Heat quantity (Q)

mass(m) x temperature change(θ)
= Q
mc

10

= KJ/ @ J/g oC

## 6.1 Application of heat capacity

• Using the formulae Q = mCθ

Example 6.1:

## Calculate the heat quantity needed to raise a temperature of 7 kg water as

much as 30oC. Specific heat capacity of water is 4.2 kJ/kg oC.

solution:

Q = mC θ
= (7kg)(4.2kJ/kg oC)(30oC)
= 882 kJ

Example 6.2:

## Calculate the heat quantity needed to raise a temperature of 6 kg metal

from 10oC to 80oC. Specific heat capacity of water is 0.38 kJ/kg oC.

solution:

Q = mC θ
= (6kg) (0.38kJ/kg oC) (80oC – 10oC)
= 159.6 kJ

## 6.1 Relative specific heat capacity

• Ratio of specific heat capacity of a substance with water

## Relative specific heat capacity of substance

## 6.1 Define thermal equilibrium

• A condition in which there is no net heat flow between two objects
that are in thermal contact with each other.

## 6.1 Determine temperature in thermal equilibrium, Q released = Q absorbed

• When two objects of different temperatures are placed in contact with
each other, the object with the higher temperature will transfer heat to
the object with a lower temperature.
• After a while, both objects will attain the same temperature. At this
state, both objects have reached thermal equilibrium.

Object Object
A B Object Object
(Hot) Heat transfer (Cold) A B

## Object A will transfer heat to object B with lower temperature

resulting both of the objects to settle at one steady temperature.

Thermal equilibrium

Q released = Q absorbed
mc θ1 = mc θ2
mc(T1 - T3) = mc (T3 – T2)

where:

Example 6.4:

An iron block with a mass of 4.5 kg was heated till it reached the
temperature of 650oC. Then, the iron block was immediately soaked in 2
kg of oil with temperature of 200oC. Both oil and iron temperature then
settled at 250oC. Given, the specific heat capacity of iron is 0.11kcal kg-1 o
C-1. Determine the quantity of heat being transferred from iron to oil. Also
calculate the specific heat capacity of the oil.
solution:

Q released = Q absorbed
mc θ1 = mc θ2
mc (T1 - T3) = mc (T3 – T2)
= mcθ
= (4.5) (0.11) (650 – 250)
= 198 k cal

Q released = Q absorbed
mc θ1 = mc θ2
2c (250 - 200) = mc (T3 – T2)
100c = mcθ
100c = (4.5) (0.11) (650 – 250)
c = 198 k cal
100
= 1.98 kcal kg-1 o C-1

Example 6.5:

## A piece of metal of mass 0.5 kg is heated to 100oC in boiling water. It is

then transferred into a well insulated beaker containing 1.5 kg of water at
27oC. If the final steady temperature of the water in the beaker is 32oC,
what is the specific heat capacity of the metal? Assume there is no energy
loss of heat to the surroundings and ignore the heat transferred to the
beaker. (Specific heat capacity of water is 4 200 J kg-1 oC-1)

Q released = Q absorbed
mc θ1 = mc θ2
mc (T1 - T3) = mc (T3 – T2
0.5c (100 - 32)= mc (32 – 27)

6 ELECTRICITY
6.1 Understanding electric charge
• Referring to atom figure given below, matter is made up of tiny
particles called atoms.
• At the centre of the atom is the nucleus which is made up of
protons and neutrons.
• Surrounding the nucleus are particles called electrons.
• A proton has positive (+) charge while electron has an equal
negative (-) charge otherwise neutron is uncharged.
• Electric charge is denoted by the symbol Q. The SI unit of electric
charge is the coulomb and is denoted by the symbol C.

## Charge on one electron = - 1.60 x 10-19 C

Charge on one proton = + 1.60 x 10-19 C

## 6.1 Define charge flow

• Movement of charge from positive terminal to negative terminal in an
electric circuit.

## 6.1 Define current

• Electric current is defined as the rate of flow of charge.
• If the amount of charge which flows through any point in an electric
circuit in time t is Q, then the electric current I is given by:

Q = It

## • The SI unit of electric current is the ampere, A.

• The electric current flowing in an electric circuit is 1 ampere if the
amount of charge flowing through any point in the circuit in 1 second
is 1coulomb.

1A = 1Cs -1

## • A coulomb of charge can be defined as the charge flowing through any

point in a circuit when a steady current of 1 ampere flows for 1
second.

1C = 1As

shown in figure below. Assume that the dry cell provides a steady current
during that duration.

b) Determine the number of electrons that flows through the lamp if
the charge on one electron is 1.6 x 10-19 C?

solution:

I = 0.3 A
t = 5 minutes = 300s
Q = It

## 6.1 Define potential different (voltage)

• Potential different, V is defined as the work done in moving a unit
charge from one point to the other.
• Potential difference is measured in volts (V)
• The potential difference across two points in a circuit is volt if 1 joule
of work is done in moving 1 coulomb of charge from one point to the
other.
• Voltmeter can be used to measure potential difference.

Example 7.2:

The potential difference across the lamp is 1.3 V. How many joules of
energy are transformed into light and heat when a charge of 20 C passes
through the lamp?

solution:

V = 1.3 V
Q = 20 C

V = E/Q
E = VQ
= 1.3 x 20
= 26 J

Example 7.3:

## If 72 J of work has to be done to carry 6 C of charge across two parallel

metal plates, what is the potential difference across the metal plates?

solution:

W = 72 J Q = 6C

6.1.1 Voltage application

10

• DC Filter - A DC filter is used to create a smooth voltage from
irregular or pulsating voltage sources. High peak currents and
ripple currents are dissipated by capacitors storing and
releasing charge in a controlled fashion.
• Inverter - An inverter is a device that converts direct current
power input to alternating polarity power output.
• Resonant Charge Circuit - A circuit used for the resonant
charging of one capacitor from another capacitor through an
inductor. This form of charging is frequently used in pulsed
power and power conditioning circuits in order to efficiently
transfer energy from one stage to another.
• Pulse Forming Network - Pulse forming networks are able to
create a high power pulse with a relatively flat top. This is
achieved using a network of capacitors and inductors to
discharge at precise times to create a square or trapezoidal
current. Different network designs exist based on the desired
output.

## 6.1 Understanding Ohm’s Law

6.1.1 State Ohm’s Law, V = IR
• Ohm's law states that, in an electrical circuit, the current
passing through a conductor from one terminal point on the
conductor to another terminal point on the conductor is directly
proportional to the potential difference (i.e. voltage drop or
voltage) across the two terminal points, and inversely
proportional to the resistance of the conductor between the two
terminal points.

V = IR

Example 7.4:

## A source of 6.0V is connected to a purely resistive lamp and a current of

2.0 amperes flows. All the wires are resistance-free. What is the resistance
of the lamp?

solution:

V = IR
R = V/I
R = 3.0

## 6.1 Define conductors

10
8
• contain movable electric charges which will move when an
electric potential difference (measured in volts) is applied
across separate points on a wire (etc) made from the material.
• This flow of charge (measured in amperes) is what is meant by
electric current.
• In most materials, the amount of current is proportional to the
voltage (Ohm's Law) provided the temperature remains
constant and the material remains in the same shape and state

## 6.1 Define resistance

• Resistance is a measure of how much a conductor resists the flow of
electricity.
• Electrons moving in a wire will hit the wall of the wire and also collide
with other atoms causing the movement to slow is called resistance.
• A good conductor has low resistance and a poor conductor has a high
resistance.
• The resistance (R) of a conductor is defined as the ratio of potential
different, V across the conductor to the current, I flowing through it.
• Unit of resistance is ohm, Ώ.

## 6.1 Factors affecting resistance

## 6.1 Define capacitor

• is an electrical device that can store energy in the electric field between a
pair of closely spaced conductors (called 'plates').

## 6.1.1 State the usage of capacitor

• used in electrical circuits as energy-storage devices
• They can also be used to differentiate between high-frequency and low-
frequency signals and this makes them useful in electronic filters.

11

6.1.1 Measure the electric energy in capacitor using Ep = ½ CV2
• As opposite charges accumulate on the plates of a capacitor
due to the separation of charge, a voltage develops across the
capacitor owing to the electric field of these charges. Ever-
increasing work must be done against this ever-increasing
electric field as more charge is separated. The energy
(measured in joules, in SI) stored in a capacitor is equal to the
amount of work required to establish the voltage across the
capacitor, and therefore the electric field

## • The maximum energy that can be (safely) stored in a particular

capacitor is limited by the maximum electric field that the
dielectric can withstand before it breaks down. Therefore, all
maximum energy density (joules of energy per cubic meter).

## 6.1 State simple electrical circuit

• A circuit connects circuit elements together in a specific
configuration designed to transform the source signal
(originating from a voltage or current source) into another
signal—the output—that corresponds to the current or voltage
defined for a particular circuit element
• is an interconnection of electrical elements such as resistors,
inductors, capacitors, transmission lines, voltage sources,
current sources, and switches
• is a network that has a closed loop, giving a return path for the
current.

i) Series circuit
• The three resistors R1, R2 and R3 in figure below are said
to be connected in series
• The current I is the same at all point throughout the circuit.

I = I1 = I2 = I3

## • The total potential difference V cross the resistors is equal

to the sum of the potential differences across each resistor.

V = V1 + V2 + V3

## • From Ohm’s Law, V1 = I1R1, V2 = I2R2, V3 = I3R3. If R is

the effective or total resistance, V = IR. Hence,

IR = I1 R1 + I2R2 + I3R3

battery as shown in figure below. What is the potential difference across
each resistor?
12 Ώ

8Ώ 12 Ώ

solution:

R = R1 + R 2
= (8 + 12 ) Ώ
= 20 Ώ

V = IR
12 = I (20)
I = 12 / 20
= 0.6 A

V1 = I R1
= 0.6 x 8
= 4.8 V

V2 = I R2
= 0.6 x 12 V
= 7.2 V

Example 7.9:

## A 12 V battery is connected in series with a lamp M and a 4 Ώ resistor as

shown in the following figure. If the ammeter A shows a reading of 0.5 S,
find the resistance of the lamp M and potential difference across the lamp.

R1 = 20 Ώ = 10 V

i) Parallel circuit
• The three resistors R1, R2 and R3 in figure below are said
to be connected in parallel.
• The potential difference V cross each of the resistors is the
same.
V = V1 = V2 = V3
• The current I in the main circuit is equal to the sum of the
currents through the separate branches.
I = I1 + I2 + I3
• From Ohm’s Law, I1 = V1/R1, I2 = V2/R2, I3 = V3/R3

Example 7.11:

## An electrical system consists of serial resistor. Each resistor has 8 Ώ, 12 Ώ

and 13 Ώ resistance. What is the total resistance of this system? Also
calculate if the system consists of parallel circuit.
Solution :

R = R1 + R2 + R3

a) Effective resistance

R1 = 10 + 1
(1/50) + (1/60) + (1/30)

= 10 + 14.29
= 24.29 Ώ

R2 = 1 + 5
(1/15) + (1/20)

= 8.57 + 5
= 13.57 Ώ

R = 1

V = 200
I = V/R
= 200/24.29
= 8.23 A

V1 = IR
= (8.23) (14.29)
= 117.7 volt

I = V/R
= 200/13.57
= 14.74 A

V2 = IR
= (14.74) (8.57)
= 126.31 volt

I15 = V/R
= 126.31/15
= 8.42 A

I20 = V/R
