Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 1 Lecture 10 l Goals: Employ Newtons Laws in 2D problems with circular motion Assignment: HW5, (Chapters 8 & 9, due 3/4, Wednesday) For Tuesday: Finish reading Chapter 8, start Chapter 9.

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 2 Uniform Circular Motion For an object moving along a curved trajectory, with non-uniform speed a = a r (radial only) arar v |a r |= vT2vT2 r Perspective is important

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 3 Non-uniform Circular Motion For an object moving along a curved trajectory, with non-uniform speed a = a r + a t (radial and tangential) arar atat dt d| | v |a T |= |a r |= vT2vT2 r

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 4 Circular motion l Circular motion implies one thing |a radial | =v T 2 / r

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 5 Key steps l Identify forces (i.e., a FBD) l Identify axis of rotation l Apply conditions (position, velocity, acceleration)

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 6 Example The pendulum Consider a person on a swing: When is the tension on the rope largest? And at that point is it : (A) greater than (B) the same as (C) less than the force due to gravity acting on the person? axis of rotation

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 7 Example Gravity, Normal Forces etc. vTvT mgmg T at bottom of swing v T is max F r = m a c = m v T 2 / r = T - mg T = mg + m v T 2 / r T > mg mgmg T at top of swing v T = 0 F r = m 0 2 / r = 0 = T – mg cos T = mg cos T < mg axis of rotation y x

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 8 Conical Pendulum (very different) l Swinging a ball on a string of length L around your head (r = L sin ) axis of rotation F r = ma r = T sin F z = 0 = T cos – mg so T = mg / cos (> mg) ma r = mg sin / cos a r = g tan v T 2 /r v T = (gr tan ) ½ Period: t = 2 r / v T =2 (r cot /g) ½

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 9 A match box car is going to do a loop-the-loop of radius r. What must be its minimum speed v t at the top so that it can manage the loop successfully ? Loop-the-loop 1

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 10 To navigate the top of the circle its tangential velocity v T must be such that its centripetal acceleration at least equals the force due to gravity. At this point N, the normal force, goes to zero (just touching). Loop-the-loop 1 F r = ma r = mg = mv T 2 /r v T = (gr) 1/2 mgmg vTvT

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 11 The match box car is going to do a loop-the-loop. If the speed at the bottom is v B, what is the normal force, N, at that point? Hint: The car is constrained to the track. Loop-the-loop 2 mgmg v N F r = ma r = mv B 2 /r = N - mg N = mv B 2 /r + mg

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 12 Once again the car is going to execute a loop-the-loop. What must be its minimum speed at the bottom so that it can make the loop successfully? This is a difficult problem to solve using just forces. We will skip it now and revisit it using energy considerations later on… Loop-the-loop 3

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 13 Example Problem Swinging around a ball on a rope in a nearly horizontal circle over your head. Eventually the rope breaks. If the rope breaks at 64 N, the balls mass is 0.10 kg and the rope is 0.10 m How fast is the ball going when the rope breaks? (neglect mg contribution, 1 N << 40 N) (mg = 1 N) T = 40 N F r = m v T 2 / r T v T = (r F r / m) 1/2 v T = (0.10 x 64 / 0.10) 1/2 m/s v T = 8 m/s

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 14 Example, Circular Motion Forces with Friction (recall ma r = m |v T | 2 / r F f s N ) l How fast can the race car go? (How fast can it round a corner with this radius of curvature?) m car = 1600 kg S = 0.5 for tire/road r = 80 m g = 10 m/s 2 r

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 15 l Only one force is in the horizontal direction: static friction x-dir: F r = ma r = -m |v T | 2 / r = F s = - s N (at maximum) y-dir: ma = 0 = N – mg N = mg v T = ( s m g r / m ) 1/2 v T = ( s g r ) 1/2 = ( x 10 x 80) 1/2 v T = 20 m/s Example N mgmg FsFs m car = 1600 kg S = 0.5 for tire/road r = 80 m g = 10 m/s 2 y x

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 16 A horizontal disk is initially at rest and very slowly undergoes constant angular acceleration. A 2 kg puck is located a point 0.5 m away from the axis. At what angular velocity does it slip (assuming a T << a r at that time) if s =0.8 ? l Only one force is in the horizontal direction: static friction x-dir: F r = ma r = -m |v T | 2 / r = F s = - s N (at ) y-dir: ma = 0 = N – mg N = mg v T = ( s m g r / m ) 1/2 v T = ( s g r ) 1/2 = ( x 10 x 0.5) 1/2 v T = 2 m/s = v T / r = 4 rad/s Another Example m puck = 2 kg S = 0.8 r = 0.5 m g = 10 m/s 2 y x N mgmg FsFs

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 18 Zero Gravity Ride A rider in a 0 gravity ride finds herself stuck with her back to the wall. Which diagram correctly shows the forces acting on her?

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 19 Banked Curves In the previous car scenario, we drew the following free body diagram for a race car going around a curve on a flat track. n mgmg FfFf What differs on a banked curve?

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 20 Banked Curves Free Body Diagram for a banked curve. Use rotated x-y coordinates Resolve into components parallel and perpendicular to bank N mgmg FfFf For very small banking angles, one can approximate that F f is parallel to ma r. This is equivalent to the small angle approximation sin = tan, but very effective at pushing the car toward the center of the curve!! marmar xx xx y

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 21 Banked Curves, Testing your understanding Free Body Diagram for a banked curve. Use rotated x-y coordinates Resolve into components parallel and perpendicular to bank N mgmg FfFf At this moment you press the accelerator and, because of the frictional force (forward) by the tires on the road you accelerate in that direction. How does the radial acceleration change? marmary x

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 22 Locomotion: how fast can a biped walk?

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 23 How fast can a biped walk? What about weight? (a)A heavier person of equal height and proportions can walk faster than a lighter person (b)A lighter person of equal height and proportions can walk faster than a heavier person (c)To first order, size doesnt matter

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 24 How fast can a biped walk? What about height? (a)A taller person of equal weight and proportions can walk faster than a shorter person (b)A shorter person of equal weight and proportions can walk faster than a taller person (c)To first order, height doesnt matter

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 25 How fast can a biped walk? What can we say about the walkers acceleration if there is UCM (a smooth walker) ? Acceleration is radial ! So where does it, a r, come from? (i.e., what external forces are on the walker?) 1. Weight of walker, downwards 2. Friction with the ground, sideways

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 26 How fast can a biped walk? What can we say about the walkers acceleration if there is UCM (a smooth walker) ? Acceleration is radial ! So where does it, a r, come from? (i.e., what external forces are on the walker?) 1. Weight of walker, downwards 2. Friction with the ground, sideways

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 27 How fast can a biped walk? What can we say about the walkers acceleration if there is UCM (a smooth walker) ? Acceleration is radial ! So where does it, a r, come from? (i.e., what external forces are on the walker?) 1. Weight of walker, downwards 2. Friction with the ground, sideways (most likely from back foot, no tension along the red line) 3. Need a normal force as well

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 28 How fast can a biped walk? What can we say about the walkers acceleration if there is UCM (a smooth walker) ? Acceleration is radial ! So where does it, a r, come from? (i.e., what external forces are on the walker?) 1. Weight of walker, downwards 2. Friction with the ground, sideways (Notice the new direction)

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 29 How fast can a biped walk? Given a model then what does the physics say? Choose a position with the simplest constraints. If his radial acceleration is greater than g then he is in orbit F r = m a r = m v 2 / r < mg Otherwise you will lose contact! a r = v 2 / r v max = (gr) ½ v max ~ 3 m/s ! (And it pays to be tall and live on Jupiter)

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 31 Geostationary orbit

Physics 207: Lecture 10, Pg 32 Geostationary orbit l The radius of the Earth is ~6000 km but at 36000 km you are ~42000 km from the center of the earth. l F gravity is proportional to r -2 and so little g is now ~10 m/s 2 / 50 n v T = (0.20 * 42000000) ½ m/s = 3000 m/s At 3000 m/s, period T = 2 r / v T = 2 42000000 / 3000 sec = = 90000 sec = 90000 s/ 3600 s/hr = 24 hrs l Orbit affected by the moon and also the Earths mass is inhomogeneous (not perfectly geostationary) l Great for communication satellites (1 st pointed out by Arthur C. Clarke)
