(Quick Quiz 6.1) A force F is applied to an object, which undergoes a displacement to the right. In each of the four cases, the magnitudes of the force and displacement are the same.

(a) The work done by a force of magnitude Fx for the small displacement x is Fx x, which equals the area of the shaded rectangle. The total work done for the displacement from xi to xf is approximately equal to the sum of the areas of all the rectangles. (b) The work done by the variable force Fx as the particle moves from xi to xf is exactly equal to the area under this curve.

Figure 6.8 The force exerted by a spring on a block varies with the block’s displacement from the equilibrium position x 0. (a) When x is positive (stretched spring), the spring force is to the left. (b) When x is zero (natural length of the spring), the spring force is zero. (c) When x is negative (compressed spring), the spring force is to the right. (d) Graph of Fs versus x for the block – spring system. The work done by the spring force as the block moves from x max to 0 is the area 1 2 of the shaded triangle, 2 kx max .

A block moves from xi – x max to xf 0 :on a frictionless surface as a force F app is applied to the block. If the process is carried out very slowly, the applied force is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the spring force at all times.

(Example 6.5) A block is dropped onto a vertical spring, causing the spring to compress.

F I G U R E 6.14

A book sliding to the right on a horizontal surface slows down in the presence of a force of kinetic friction acting to the left. The initial : velocity of the book is v i , and its final : v f velocity is . The normal force and gravitational force are not included in the diagram because they are perpendicular to the direction of motion and therefore do not influence the speed of the book.
