2People DO NOT create laws governing the natural world. We only identify the principles that exist in the physical world and name them for reference!!
3What makes objects move? What makes them change their motion?
4Force Force – a push or a pull Contact Force – when 2 objects must be touching to exert forces on each otherFriction Pushing or kicking a ballLong-Range Force – a force that is exerted without the objects having to touchGravity Magnetism Nuclear force
5COMBINING FORCESNet force – combination of all forces acting on an objectBalanced Forces – 2 or more forces acting on an object cancel each other – they do NOT change the motion of the object (Net Force = 0)Unbalanced Forces –forces acting on an object do NOT cancel each other – they DO change the motion of the object (Net Force ≠ 0)
8RESTThe state of an object when it is not changing position.THIS IS RELATIVE!!Not moving in relation to your immediate surroundings!!!
9MOTION THIS IS RELATIVE, TOO!! The state of an object when it is changing position in relation to its surroundings.THIS IS RELATIVE, TOO!!When you are sitting on an airplane, you are at rest, but if you get up and walk down the aisle, you are in motion.
10If you are sitting in a seat on a speeding airplane you would still be considered at rest! If rest were defined as a total absence of motion, it would not exist in nature.
11If an object is at REST, it takes an unbalanced force to make it move. UNBALANCED FORCESIf an object is at REST, it takes an unbalanced force to make it move.If an object is in MOTION, it takes an unbalanced force to stop it, change its direction from a straight line path, or alter its speed.
12ANY CHANGE IN AN OBJECT'S ACCELERATIONANY CHANGE IN AN OBJECT'SSPEED OR DIRECTION
13There is no change in motion therefore no acceleration Balanced ForcesThere is no change in motion therefore no accelerationUnbalanced ForcesThere is a force pushing the book to the RIGHT that is GREATER than the force of FRICTION therefore there is acceleration.
14Newton’s 1st Law of Motion INERTIALazy, resistant to change!!!
15Newton’s 1st Law of Motion If there is NO net force acting on an object thenAn object at rest will remain at restAn object in motion will remain in motion at constant speed.Until acted upon by an outside forceThe truck stops when it hits the car, the ladder continues moving forward because the force of the car was acting on the truck NOT the ladder.
16Newton’s 1st Law of Motion From a standing start the truck moves away very quickly causing the passenger to fall backwardAfter traveling at some speed the truck suddenly comes to a stop causing the passenger to fall forward.Force was applied to the truck not the passenger!!!
17Newton’s 1st Law of Motion MASS OF AN OBJECT = INERTIA OF AN OBJECTLess mass = less inertia(smaller resistance to change)More mass = more inertia(greater resistance to change)
18Newton’s 1st Law of Motion MASS OF AN OBJECT = INERTIA OF AN OBJECTINERTIA of an object explains why a magician can pull the tablecloth out from under a set of glasses without having them fall overThe glasses have more inertia than the tablecloth as the force (pull) is applied to the tablecloth.
19Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion Force is equal to mass times accelerationF = ma
21Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion When the cannon is fired, an explosion propels a cannon ball out the open end of the barrel. It flies to its target. At the same time, the cannon itself is pushed backward a meter or two.ACTION - workWhat happens to the cannon and the ball is determined by Newton’s 2nd Law.
22m(cannon) a(cannon) = m(ball) a(ball) F = m(cannon) a(cannon)F = m(ball) a(ball)Force (exploding gunpowder) is the same for the two equations, they can be combined and re-writtenm(cannon) a(cannon) = m(ball) a(ball)
28Balloons & RocketsAir inside a balloon is compressed by the balloons rubber walls.The air pushes back so that the inward and outward pressing forces balance.When the nozzle is released, air escapes through it and the balloon is propelled in the opposite direction.
29Forces become balanced and unbalanced all the time. Rocket FlightForces become balanced and unbalanced all the time.

34Controlling velocity is extremely important for maintaining the circular orbit of the spacecraft Only an unbalanced force such as friction with gas molecules in orbit or the firing of a rocket engine in the opposite direction slowing down the spacecraft will bring the satellite out of orbit!
