**Handout III : Gravitation and Circular Motion**

EE1 Particle Kinematics : Newton’s Legacy “I frame no hypotheses; for whatever is not deduced from the phenomena is to be called a hypothesis; and hypotheses, whether metaphysical or physical, whether of occult qualities or mechanical, have no place in experimental philosophy.” Chris Parkes October

Gravitational Force Myth of Newton & apple. He realised gravity is universal same for planets and apples Any two masses m1,m2 attract each other with a gravitational force: F F m1 m2 r Newton’s law of Gravity Inverse square law 1/r2, r distance between masses The gravitational constant G = 6.67 x Nm2/kg2 Explains motion of planets, moons and tides mE=5.97x1024kg, RE=6378km Mass, radius of earth Gravity on earth’s surface Or Hence,

**Circular Motion Rotate in circle with constant angular speed **

360o = 2 radians 180o = radians 90o = /2 radians Circular Motion Rotate in circle with constant angular speed R – radius of circle s – distance moved along circumference =t, angle (radians) = s/R Co-ordinates x= R cos = R cos t y= R sin = R sin t Velocity =t R s y t=0 x Acceleration

4
**Magnitude and direction of motion**

Velocity v=R And direction of velocity vector v Is tangential to the circle v Acceleration a a= 2R=(R)2/R=v2/R And direction of acceleration vector a a= -2r Acceleration is towards centre of circle

5
**I is called moment of inertia**

Angular Momentum For a body moving in a circle of radius r at speed v, the angular momentum is L=(mv)r = mr2= I The rate of change of angular momentum is The product rF is called the torque of the Force Work done by force is Fs =(Fr)(s/r) = Torque angle in radians Power = rate of doing work = Torque Angular velocity (using v=R) I is called moment of inertia s r

6
**Force towards centre of circle**

Particle is accelerating So must be a Force Accelerating towards centre of circle So force is towards centre of circle F=ma= mv2/R in direction –r or using unit vector Examples of central Force Tension in a rope Banked Corner Gravity acting on a satellite

7
**Satellites Centripetal Force provided by Gravity m R M**

N.B. general solution is an ellipse not a circle - planets travel in ellipses around sun Satellites Centripetal Force provided by Gravity m R M Distance in one revolution s = 2R, in time period T, v=s/T T2R3 , Kepler’s 3rd Law Special case of satellites – Geostationary orbit Stay above same point on earth T=24 hours

8
**Gravitational Potential Energy**

How much work must we do to move m1 from r to infinity ? When distance R Work done in moving dR dW=FdR Total work done r m1 m2 Choose Potential energy (PE) to be zero when at infinity Then stored energy when at r is –W -ve as attractive force, so PE must be maximal at

9
**Compare Gravitational P.E.**

Relate to other expression that you know Potential Energy falling distance h to earth’s surface = mgh Uses: Expression for g from earlier g=GME/RE2 Binomial expansion given h<<RE (1+)-1 = 1- +…..smaller terms… Compare with Electrostatics: Same form, but watch signs: attractive or repulsive force attract repel Maximal at Minimal at

10
**A final complication: what do we mean by mass ?**

Newton’s 2nd law F = mI a Law of Gravity mI is inertial mass mG, MG is gravitational mass - like electric charge for gravity Are these the same ? Yes, but that took another 250 years till Einstein’s theory of relativity to explain!
