A 0.075 kg ball in a kinetic sculpture moves at a constant speed along a motorized conveyor belt. The ball rises 1.32 m above the ground. A constant frictional force of 0.350 N acts in the direction opposite the conveyor belt's motion. What is the net work done on the ball?

  • Physics -

    net work= friction work+ changein PE

    net work= .350*distance+mg*distance

  • Physics -

    0.1

  • Physics -

    when they fall the ball

  • Physics -

    (0.075)(9.81)(1.32)= 0.971 J
    then, (0.350)(1.32)= 0.462J
    then, 0.971- 0.462= 0.509J ~ work done on the ball

  • Physics -

    F=mg, so force = mass times gravity.
    0.075 times 9.8 = 0.735

    W=FD, so work= force times displacement.
    0.735 times 1.32= 0.9702 J.

    So, 0.9702 is the first amount of work.

    Second, frictional force times displacement.
    0.350 times 1.32 = 0.462 J.

    Subtract them to get the net force, so:
    0.9702 - 0.462 = 0.51 J

    0.51 J is therefore the answer.

    the website finnytown states the answer is 0.00J but i cannot figure out why.

  • Physics -

    The work is 0.00J because the sculpture's speed is constant, and if speed is constant a= 0m/s^2 which makes the F= 0N and W=0J

  • Physics -

    Or do you add the forces because you are overcoming friction??
    Which makes it 0.972 + 0.462 = 1.434J ???
