In this lesson: Newton’s Second Law Momentum & Impulse
Forces and Motion In this lesson: Newton’s Second Law Momentum & Impulse

The common definition of a force is any push or pull.
Newton’s Second Law The common definition of a force is any push or pull. A more interesting and useful definition is any interaction between two (or more) objects. Newton’s second law can explain that interaction and the resulting change in motion.

Newton’s Second Law Acceleration is directly proportional to Force
A large acceleration This means a large Force causes

Newton’s Second Law Acceleration is inversely proportional to Mass
This means a large Mass results in A small acceleration

This relationship is written mathematically as:
Newton’s Second Law This relationship is written mathematically as: F=ma

This relationship is written mathematically as:
Newton’s Second Law This relationship is written mathematically as: F=ma A useful form of Newton's Second Law requires the substitution of the acceleration formula below.

Newton’s Second Law Impulse & Momentum
The substitution results in the following formula: The result is two new concepts: Impulse & Momentum

Concept Check Question (True or False) Answer 1. Acceleration depends on net force, the mass, and shape of the object. 2. If I triple the net force on an object the acceleration will triple. 3. A ball with a mass of 0.25kg that is thrown with 4N of force will accelerate at 1 m/s/s. 4. If I triple the mass of an object the acceleration will triple. 5.

It is usually abbreviated as “ρ”.
Momentum Momentum of an object is simply defined as the mass times the velocity. It is usually abbreviated as “ρ”. Mass measured in kg times velocity measured in m/s results in a momentum with units of kg m/s.

Solve the following momentum problems:
Answer 1. A moving car has momentum. If it moves twice as fast, its momentum is ___________ as much. 2. A steel ball whose mass is 2.0 kg is rolling at a rate of 2.8m/s. What is its momentum? 3.

Take Home Points: Forces result from interactions of objects.
Acceleration is directly proportional to force and indirectly proportional to mass. Newton’s second law can be written as mv is called momentum; mΔv is change in momentum.

Conservation of

Presentation Goals Explain the concept of conservation of momentum
Following this presentation you should be able to: Explain the concept of conservation of momentum Apply the conservation of momentum in real world situations to predict outcomes of interactions. Solve conservation of momentum problems using mathematical models.

During an Impact In any interaction between two or more objects:
Forces are transferred Action reaction forces happen Objects undergo acceleration The velocity changes Each object’s momentum changes But the Total Momentum of a system* remains constant. *System: group of interacting, interrelated, or interdependent elements or parts that function together as a whole

= This means that… During an Impact Total momentum
before an interaction Total momentum after an interaction This means that… = Σ is the Greek letter Sigma and mean “sum” or “total” So, this equation would read… “total momentum initial equals total momentum final”

More ways to represent conservation of momentum:
During an Impact More ways to represent conservation of momentum: “total momentum initial equals total momentum final” “initial momentum of object #1 plus the initial momentum of object #2 equals final momentum of object #1 plus the final momentum of object #2 ” “mass of object #1 times the initial velocity of object #1 plus mass of object #2 times the initial velocity of object #2 equals mass of object #1 times the final velocity of object #1 plus mass of object #2 times the final velocity of object #2 ”

1) Example - Meteorite A meteorite breaks up into two pieces.
The mass of the original meteorite is 16 kg and travels at a rate of 12 m/s The two pieces each have a mass of 8.0 kg. Newton’s 1st law says that unless an outside force is present the speed will remain constant. So the speed of each piece is 12 m/s Compare the momentum before the break up to the momentum after the break up.
