Work Power and Energy Worksheet

Work Power and Energy Worksheet:-


      Today I am trying to explain  an important topic 'work power and energy ' for on going school children of standard (ix) and standard (x) .Hope this will help them a lot.
To start my discussion first we will first know some basic definitions related to this topic.

    **What is force?

    Answer:- Force is an external agency which is when applied on a body changes the state of motion or state of rest of a body or tries to change the state of a body. It is denoted by 'F' ; It is a vector quantity and its C.G.S unit is dyne and S.I unit is Newton.

    ** what is distance?

    Anwer:- The total path (which may be curved or straight) covered by a moving body with respect to any interval of time is termed as distance in science. It has only magnitude but no direction,so it is a scaler quantity.

    Now we will come to our main point,

    **What is work?


    Work Power and Energy Worksheet

    If an external force is applied on a rigid body which is at rest and the point of contact of the force displaces i.e;if the body changes its state of rest and occurs a displacement, then in science it is called work done or work has been done. It is denoted by W. The C.G.S unit of work is erg and its S.I unit is Joule.


         work or work done = F× D
      where, F= Applied external force.
       and   D = Distance/Displacement of the body.

    Problems related on work:-

    Question(i):- If an external force  of 10N is applied on a body, and the body displaces
    2000cm, in the direction of motion find the work which has been done.

    Answer:-  ∵ Force (F) = 10 N

                     Distance(D) = 2000 cm
                      = 2000/100 m [∵ 100 cm = 1m ]
                      = 20 m
    ∴ work or work done (W) = F× D
                                            = (10 × 20) J
                                            = 200 J

    Question(ii):- After application  a force on a rigid body ,the body is displaced 5 m and the work is done 5 × 10¹⁰ erg, find the amount of force.

    Answer:-  ∵ Work (W) = 5× 10¹⁰ erg

         = 5× 10¹⁰ /10⁷ Joule [ ∵ 10⁷ erg =1Joule]
         = 5 × 10³ Joule
       Distance = 5 m
      ∴ Amount of force (F) = W/D
                                           = 5 × 10³/5
                                           =10³ N

    Question(iii):- A body is at rest and a force of 20N applied on it and in the process a work of 60 J is done,  find the distance the body is displaced.

      Answer:-  ∵ Force (F) = 20 N

                        Work (W) = 60 J
                   ∴ Distance(D) =  W/F
                                     = 60/20
                                     = 3 m

    **What is power?


    Work Power and Energy Worksheet

    The rate of doing or performing work in science is called power. It is denoted by P .
    Mathematically, Power can be expressed as:-
             P = W/t
     where, P = Power
                 W = work done
          and  t  = time

    Units of power:-

     In C.G.S  system the unit of power is erg/sec and in M.KS system or S.I system the unit of powerp is Joule/sec, which is commonly known as watt. Its bigger unit which is commonly called commercial unit is Kwatt.

    Relation between watt and kilowatt.

    Answer:- Relation between watt and kilowatt is given by :-
       1kilowatt = 10³ or 1000 watt

    Problems related on power:-

    Question(i):- A motor with 2HP can  fill up a tank with water in 1 hr, find the work which is done by the motor in kilojoule.

    Answer:-  ∵ Power (P) =  2 HP

                = (2× 746)watt [∵ 1 HP = 746 watt]
           Time(t) = 1hr = (60 ×60)sec
                        = 3600 sec
    ∴  Work has been done by the motor (W)
                   =  P × t
                   = 2× 746 ×3600
                   = 5371200 Joule
                   = 5371200/1000 KJ [∵ 1000joule = 1kilo Joule]
                  = 5371.2 KJ

    Question(ii):- A mechine can do work 60 J in 2 minutes, find its power .

       Answer:-  Work(W) = 60 J
                       Time (t) = 2 minutes
               = (2× 60)sec [ ∵ 1 minute = 60 sec]
    ∴  Power(P) of the mechine = W/t
                          = 60/(2×60)
                          = ½
                          =0.5 watt


    Question (iii):- If power 1Kwatt, and work 500 J, find time.

    Answer:- ∵ Power (P) = 1 Kw
                     =  1000 w [ ∵ 1000watt = 1 Kw]
                 Work (W) = 500 J
          ∴ Time ( t) = W/P
                           = 500/1000
                           = ½ sec.
                           = 0.5 sec

    **What is energy?

    Answer:- The capacity of doing or performing work is called energy. ∵ the ability of doing work is energy, so the units of energy are same as that of units of work i.e; erg (in C.G.S system) and Joule (in M.K.S or S.I system). Its commercial units are kilowatt-hour and units.

    Problems related  on energy :-

     Question (i):-If an electric bulb of 100watt lights up for 2hrs daily for a month find the energy consumed by the bulb.


           Power (P) = 100 watt 
               = 100/1000 kw [∵ 1000 watt = 1 kw]
               = 0.1 kw
    ∵ bulbs lights up in 1 day = 2 hrs
    ∴ bulbs lights up in 30days = (30×2)hrs
                                                = 60 hrs
           ∴ Time (t) = 60 hrs
     ∴ Energy consumed by the bulb (W)
         =  P× t
        = (0.1 × 60)
         = 6
          = 6 units [ ∵ 1 = 1 unit]

    Question(ii):-During the Powerhouse lab, Ravi walks up the stairs, elevating his 100 kg body a vertical distance of  4meters in a time of  20 seconds at a constant speed.

    (a)Determine the energy consumed by Rabi climbing the stair case.

    (b)Determine the power generated by Rabi.

    Answer :- ∵ Mass (m) = 100 kg
                     height (h) = 4 meters
                 Acceleration due to gravity (g)
                      = 10 m/s² [ let, us assumed]
                 Time (t) = 20 seconds
    (a) ∴ Energy consumed by Rabi(W) = mgh
                                           = 100 × 10 × 4
                                           = 4000 J
    (b) ∴ Power = W/t
                       = 4000/20
                      = 200 J/s
                      = 200 watt.

     (iii) Sumi has a weight 400N and she climbs a height 8 m in 20 sec, find her power. 

    Answer:- ∵ Weight (w) = 400 N
                    Height (h) = 8 m
                    Time (t) = 20 sec
        ∴ Work has been done by her (W)
                = w × h
               = (400 × 8) J
     ∴ Her power = W/t
                         = (400 × 8)/20
                        =  20 × 8
                       = 160 watt

    (iv) An electric iron has power 1500 watt and it consumed an energy 15000
    find the time  taken by the iron to consume it.
