Relationship among Force, Power, Work and Energy
Force, work, energy and power are words used frequently in our everyday lives. What exactly do they mean? To put it simply, force is that which causes an object to move, while work is done when that force causes movement. Energy is the inherent ability of any object to do work, while power is the rate at which that work is done.
Law of Conservation of Mechanical Energy
Mechanical energy is stored in an object due to virtue of its motion. Potential energy and kinetic energy are the two types of mechanical energy, and the law of conservation of mechanical energy is associated with the conservation of these two energies in a system. Mechanical energy is basically a combination of potential and kinetic energy.
Principle of Conservation of Mechanical Energy
According to the law of conservation of mechanical energy, in an isolated system, that is, in the absence of non-conservative forces like friction, the initial total energy of the system equals to the total energy of the system. Simply stated, the total mechanical energy of a system is always constant (in case of absence of non-conservative forces). For instance, if a ball is rolled down a frictionless roller coaster, the initial and final energies remain constant. Conservative forces are those that don't depend on the path taken by an object. For example, gravity, spring and electrical forces are examples of mechanical energy.
Conservation of Mechanical Energy Equation
The quantitative relationship between work and energy is stated by the mechanical energy equation.
UT = Ki + Pi + Wext = Kf + Pf, where,
UT = Total mechanical energy
Ki = Initial kinetic energy
Kf = Final kinetic energy
Pi = Initial potential energy
Pf = Final potential energy
Wext = External work done
This is a general equation for mechanical energy conservation. In case, there are some…...

Power of Love & Relationships

...Power of Love & Relationships Introduction If you have ever been in a relationship then you have experienced attraction and some form of love. Often times we wonder how we ended up in a particular relationship or why it went wrong. Then we look at relationships of people we know who are still together after many years and wonder what the trick is to having a relationship like that. The only way to answer these questions is to look at the various factors which contribute to the forming of attractions, love and relationships. We also need to understand the different types of love so we understand the differences in the love we feel for family, friends and partners. Having the ability to distinguish between the different forms of love can help to keep us from mistaking close friends for potential dates or partners. Six Factors of Attraction Attraction can be a tricky thing to understand. There are times we will find someone we are physically attracted but for some reason beyond the initial physical attraction nothing else is there. This is because there are multiple factors to attraction, six to be exact. Have you ever become friends with someone who you did not like upon meeting them? This is rather common. It is in part due to the mere-exposure effect which is our tendency to like people more when we are exposed to them on a regular basis (Myers, 2010). The frequent exposure may cause a friendship to form between unlikely candidates. Frequent exposure......

Wind Power as a Source of Energy

...sources of energy in the near future, like wind power or solar power. These changes would also help reduce the amounts of greenhouse (A gas in the atmosphere that absorbs and emits radiation within the thermal infrared range) gasses being emitted into the air, which would help slow down the effects of global warming. Wind is air in motion (Casper), and wind power is a large percent of current energy produced. It can help reduced emitted greenhouse gasses and slow down the effects of global warming. The global wind energy potential is roughly five times current global electricity use (Flavin). Also the price of wind generated energy fell more steeply than any other energy source over the past 30 years (Burnett). The cost of wind power fell from approximately 25 cents per kilowatt per hour (kwh) in the early 1980s to between 5 cents and 7 cents per kwh (Burnett). Advocates argue that a new generation of turbines will bring down the cost to below 5 cents per kwh (Burnett). This would make it much easier for people to be able to afford it. Wind power could provide as much as 6 percent of the nation’s energy (Burnett). It is currently providing less than 1% of the U.S. power supply but could double its shares within 10 years (Burnett). Furthermore, wind power plants receive accelerated depreciation (Burnett). As of 2006, wind power was the cheapest form of large scale electric generation to install (Lerner). This led to the growth of wind power plants. Wind power is the......

Power in Relationships in Disgrace seen as an exploration of the relationship between the powerful and the powerless.” Set in post-apartheid South Africa, amidst a large scale shifting of power in many forms countrywide, Disgrace can very much be seen as an exploration of the relationship between the powerful and the powerless. Disgrace delves into power dynamics in various, contrasting relationships, and explores these dynamics between people of different race, gender, generations, positions of authority, and even those between humans and animals. During the course of the novel, various questions surrounding power in interpersonal relations are raised, and by the conclusion of Disgrace, Coetzee leaves us with profound thoughts and suggestions on which to dwell. In just about every relationship in Disgrace, the themes of dominance and power are present, albeit to varying degrees. There are four main relationships to which the subject of power is central: those between Lucy and Petrus, the rapists, and her father, and that between Melanie and David. Analysing these relationships with reference to Hegel’s view of “history being determined by a cycle of domination and counter-domination in which individuals who strive to fulfil their need for recognition are entrapped” (Marais 2008:35) greatly enhances the understanding of power and its context within the various relationships in Disgrace, especially with regard to Lucy’s decisions after her rape, and to Lucy’s relationship with Petrus. Early on in......

...Power of Love and Relationships Within this paper I will be discussing power of love and relationships, by describing the factors of attraction. What attracts us to one another? Why are we less likely to befriend someone from another culture than someone from a similar background with a similar physical aesthetic? Be sure to identify and describe all six factors in attraction. As well as discuss the human need to build bonds and relationships. Do we have an innate need to belong? If so, why? How is this need attached to our emotions, our social bonds, and our fear of deprivation? Then lastly explain the three types of love: companionate, passionate, and compassionate. What are the differences and similarities among them? What is an example of each type? How does Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love distinguish romantic love, from empty love or infatuation? Attraction Within the discussion of what attracts people to one another? The textbook states “we like those who are close to us… , …we like those who are attractive… , …we like those who are similar to us… , …we like those we have equitable relationships with… and …we like those who are hard to get.” (Feenstra, 2013) It is easy to understand the first of these as the likelihood or meeting and establish a relation is more likely with people that are in our general proximity. But with age of the online community and social networking company that are out there is a growing connection that are being made with people......

...Energy, Work and power of the body All body activities including thinking, doing work, or keeping the body temp. constant involve energy changes, for example under resting(Basal)conditions the skeletal muscles and the heart using 25% of the body's energy ,another 19%is being used by the brain,10%is being used by the kidneys, and 27% is being used by the liver and the spleen. A small percent of about 5% of food energy being excreted in feces and urine. Extra food energy will be stored mainly as fat. External heat energy from environment can help maintain the body temp. , but it has no use in body function. Conservation of energy Change in the stored energy (i.e. food energy, body fat and the body heat) =Heat lost from the body + Work done Assumes that no food or drink is taken and no feces or urine is excreted during the interval of time considered. ●This is similar to the first law of thermodynamic:- ∆Q= ∆u + ∆w -1- ●Where ∆Q is the change of quantity of heat of the system. ● ● ∆u is the change in the internal or stored energy. ∆w is the work done. This can be written as ∆u= ∆Q - ∆w A body doing no work (∆w=0) and at constant temp. continues to lose heat to its surroundings, and ∆Q is negative. Therefore, ∆u is also negative, indicating a decrease in stored energy. The rate of change of their variables is just taken per unit time ( by dividing on ∆t) . ∆u / ∆t = ∆Q/∆t - ∆w/∆t The body's basic source of energy is the food energy; it must be chemically......

...Authority and obedience in the workplace May 3, 15 Authority and obedience in the workplace Obedience represents the order in human nature; it reflects the positive outcomes of our life. No organization can function without some measure of obedience to authority. A degree of power in certain individuals or groups is desirable for the proper functioning of society. Authority and obedience are two terms that often come associated to each other. The Oxford Dictionary defines authority as “the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience” or “the power to influence others, especially because of one’s commanding manner or one’s recognized knowledge about something”. While obedience, is defined as, “compliance with an order, request, or law or submission to another’s authority”. The following is from a website that easily shows how authority, obedience, and respect get confused in the workplace, “In the workplace, power over others is often mistaken for authority. (Bier, D 2001). Often times those in an authority position in the workplace confuse their position with control and power, which is not the case. When this happens those who work within the organization tend to feel some type of resentment for that individual in the leadership position. To respect someone is to show them consideration because of their position or place in your life. The Bible tells children to respect their parents, church members to respect their pastors, citizens to......

Aerodynamic Forces and Energy

...Rollercoasters are driven by different forces of gravity, inertia and centripetal. The physics used in a rollercoaster also involves friction, work, air resistance, and energy. It usually begins with a mechanical device i.e. motor and chain; they exert a force on the roller coaster car train to lift them to the top of the hill. From this point, gravity starts operating, and the duration of the ride undergo energy transformation. Pulling the rollercoasters uphill uses energy, this energy does not simply disappear. It is stored this energy just by being up in the air and the higher they have pulled the more energy they store. The stored energy will be used to race back down the hill when the ride begins. This is because they have the potential to use future energy that was stored in the past. The stored energy is called Potential energy. Once the cars are released and start rolling down the hill, the force of gravity makes them hurtle downwards when they round the brow of the first hill. As accelerate and pick up momentum, their potential energy turns into kinetic energy. The further they go downhill, the faster they go and more potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. When the ride starts, the cars have a certain amount of potential energy. They can never have more than this no matter how long the ride will last. Through the whole ride, potential and kinetic energy keep swapping back and forth that’s why rollercoaster cars always go slower in higher bits of the......

Truth in Management and Power Relationships

...Truth in Management and Power Relationships Throughout history, philosophers have come up with their versions of the actual definition for ‘truth’. The Greek philosopher Aristotle had explained truth as “To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true” [1]. Aristotle explains that truth can be described as that something that is definite and distinct in its own form, nature or identity. Another Greek sophist and philosopher Protagoras held the view that “man is the measure of all things, of things that are that they are, and of things that are not that they are not”[2]. According to him, every person’s opinion of truth is based his or her own perception of truth. In the famous Greek poet Homer’s epic Odyssey, there is one instance when the Greek hero Odysseus did not actually reveal the truth when he says “I will tell you all the truth”[3]. In his epics, there are characters that hold back information or tell lies. In the present day management, we have to be cautious as to how we go about telling the truth to our subordinates or colleagues. There are multiple scenarios that we have to consider before revealing the truth. Sometimes, we may end up in situations whereby we have to cover up the truth to protect our integrity and position in the company or organization. Socrates, an Athenian Greek Philosopher once quoted: “You, my friend, are you not ashamed of heaping up......

Critiquing Analysis on Work Energy

...Organizational Behavior Human energy management is lacking in many companies, despite how it affects the overall performance in employees. Energy seems to be constantly drained, before, during and after work. It is affected by one’s relational, mental, physical and spiritual welfare. To find a way to retain or increase energy levels in the workplace, the frequency and correlation of micro-breaks (non-work and work related) taken by a group of knowledge workers with vitality and fatigue was investigated. Firstly, the methodology in using subjective vitality was largely accurate in measuring the complicated term. The accuracy of the seven-item subjective vitality scale used has been proven in a validation paper by Bostic, McGartland and Hood (2000). Results showed high factor loadings (>0.60), indicative that scale was consistent and reliable. However, the relationship between vitality and fatigue was not explained. If vitality is the enthusiasm that an employee has, the lack of it is due to fatigue – indication that they are merely flip sides. Improvements to data collection can be to use observational research by monitoring employees through a camera or to obtain colleagues’ assessment. While there is high cost in doing so, representative data can be obtained, eliminating the problem of inaccurate self-evaluation. The paper’s focus on strategies and breaks targeted at the individual may not be effective in boosting energies. The individual’s work is......

Work and Energy

...First discuss how energy can be converted from one form to another, giving specific examples. All forms of energy can be converted to another form of. For example: “A pendulum is an object, called a bob, suspended by a string or wire for support. If the bob is moved to one side and then released, it will swing back and forth in an arc. At that moment the bob reaches the top of its swing, it stops for an instant, then begins another swing. At that instant of stopping, the bob has 100 percent potential energy and no kinetic energy. As the bob starts back down through the swing, it is gaining kinetic energy and losing potential energy. At the instant the bob is at the bottom of the swing, it has 100 percent kinetic energy and no potential energy. AS the bob climbs through the other half of the arc, it is gaining potential energy and losing kinetic energy until it again reaches an instantaneous stop at the top, and the process starts over. The kinetic energy of the bob at the bottom of the arc is equal to the potential energy it had at the top of the arc. Disregarding friction, the sum of potential energy and kinetic energy remains constant throughout the swing.” (Integrated Science, pg. 64) Some other examples of how a form of energy converts into another are: a light bulb converts electrical energy into radiant energy. A car converts chemical energy into mechanical energy, and a solar cell converts radiant energy into electrical energy. Define what we mean by fossil fuels......

Ethics are often viewed as having been revealed from a supernatural realm, but can be viewed socially generated guideline Emotional experiences associated with religions are dread guilt, awe, mystery, devotion, conversions, “rebirth”, liberation, ecstasy, bliss, and inner peace. Religions make use of an astonishing variety of physical elements. What a religious tradition does? Christians use water for baptisms; Jews use water for ritual purification; and Muslims and followers of Shinto wash before prayer. Ashes also have widespread use among religious tradition to suggest death and the spirit world: are used by tribal religions in dance ceremonies.

The Power of Influence and Team Work

...THE POWER OF INFLUENCE AND TEAM-WORK IN A MULTI-LEVEL MARKETING ORGANIZATION INTRODUCTION: In the world of business there are many different approaches taken in order to influence the sale. Some businesses take the big box store approach selling and advertising their merchandise through a larger entity such as a Wal-Mart, Home Depot or Best Buy. Some take an exclusive approach selling their merchandise only through exclusive retailors such as Nordstrom’s. With these types of businesses there is always a middle man between the manufacturer and the final customer. In a direct marketing organization the middle man (the retailor) is shut out. In the direct marketing approach a sales associate serves as the representative for the company and goes directly to the customers to deliver the necessary product to them. Many different kinds of business take this approach from painting services to health supplements. This form a business is similar to that of the old traveling salesman who goes from home to home hopefully selling a product that will help sell itself. Typically advertising is not done by this individual but by word of mouth among the friends of the buyers. Many sales people conduct social “mixers” where they have groups of friends gather in a party like setting to show the product. This allows the salesman to create a mob mentality with the sale helping the group sell themselves and maximizing his/her earning potential without using an unreasonable amount of time....

...POWER AND ENERGY INDUSTRY IN INDIA 1. OVERVIEW OF INDIA’S POWER SECTOR 1.1 Background India's power market is the fifth largest in the world. The power sector is high on India's priority as it offers tremendous potential for investing companies based on the sheer size of the market and the returns available on investment capital. Contribution from different sources of power generation Gas based 10% Coal based Gas based Hydro Renewable Nuclear Diesel Source: Ministry of Power, Government of India Almost 55 per cent of this capacity is based on coal, about 10 per cent on gas, 26 per cent on hydro, approximately 5 per cent on renewable sources, about 3 per cent on nuclear and 1 per cent on diesel. In the past five years, there has been a much greater emphasis on transmission and distribution reforms. The government aims to provide "power to all" by 2012. To achieve that promise, it will have to add as much as 1,00,000 MW of generation capacity, cut AT&C losses substantially to below 20 per cent, rationalize tariffs and ensure that average revenue realization is greater than the cost of production. It will have to continue to push the process of reform and restructuring and ensure greater private participation, in every segment. In the past few years, there has been considerable growth in power plants based on renewable sources of energy. The Plant Load Factor (PLF) of generating plants has improved consistently over the last 10 years. The share of thermal power...
