Now, your study of Physics begins! All you’ve learnt so far are very important tools to enable us discuss Physics. But you might as well have learnt those in a Maths class. Physics deals with the study of the physical universe with the objective of finding how things work – the Laws behind it all. ( Note: we assume there are laws, and we try to state these empirically )
Newton’s Laws (of motion) -named after Sir Isaac Newton, British scientist. The first suite of Laws we’ll be studying deals with motion. From the motion of a rocket headed for the moon to that of blood flowing in your capillaries. As is true for most topics in Physics, they are really easy-to-grasp and “common-sensical” 90% of the rest of this Course is essentially the application of what you’ll be learning today. So better pay close attention!
Newton’s 1 st Law An object continues in a state of rest or of uniform motion along a straight line unless a net force acts on it Frequently called the law of inertial, this law essentially introduces the very important physical quantities: Force and Inertial mass. It says: 1. A body at rest will continue to be at rest except there is a net force acting on it. 2. A body in uniform motion will continue with its uniform motion unless there is a net force acting on it. (Uniform motion => No change in either magnitude or direction of the velocity vector. Obviously Statement 1 is just a special case of Statement 2). Summary: Inertial (mass) makes a physical object reluctant to welcome changes. Net Force compels it ! Poser: How about timed bombs?
Practical Illustrations Use of safety belts. Here car stopped by the wall. Net force compels motion of car to change However, driver (when not restrained to the car by safety belt) is not affected by the force provided by the wall. He continues in his motion along a straight line!
Further illustrations below. Later on in this and other modules, we’ll consider cases where change in motion is essentially that of change in direction. The nature of Force can be gravitational (this module), electric, magnetic, nuclear weak and strong – PHY !06
Newton’s 2 nd Law the rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the net force This gives us an empirical/operational definition of “Force”. (Most of the calculations you will be doing in Physics is based directly on this empirical definition we are about to describe) The 2 nd Law of motion introduces to us the vector quantity Momentum.
2 nd Law the rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the net force It means the more the applied/net force, the greater the rate of change of momentum Momentum is the product of Mass and Velocity Questions: What is the momentum of an object of i. mass 50 kg moving with a velocity of 100 m/s? ii. Mass = 1000 kg, v = cm/s? Iii. Mass = 10 g, v = 1,0000 m/s?
2 nd Law the rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the net force It means the more the applied/net force, the greater the rate of change of momentum Change of Momentum means: Momentum after the application of the net force less Momentum before the application of the Force i.e. (Final Mass x Final velocity) – (Initial Mass x Initial velocity) Example: i. What is the momentum of a tipper (mass 3,000 kg) when loaded with 2,000 kg of sand if it is moving with a uniform velocity of 10 m/s? Ii. What is the momentum of the same tipper if it moves with the same velocity after discharging its load? [Units?]
2 nd Law the rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the net force What is rate of change? It means how long did it take to effect the change. Example: If momentum of a car changes uniformly from 2500 kgms-1 to 1500 kgms-1 in 10 s, what is the rate of change of momentum? Ii. What is this rate if the time involved were 20s?
2 nd Law the rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the net force Summary of the 2 nd Law: For momentum to change, something called force must be involved (a more general statement of the 1 st law). The larger the force involved, the greater the rate of change of momentum Mathematically,
2 nd Law the rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the net force If we choose appropriate unit system, we can equate the constant of proportionality to 1, hence we can write
F = ma This famous equation you will use repeatedly in your study of Physics. But remember, it is only a special form of the 2 nd Law of motion, WHEN THE MASS IS NOT CHANGING. For instance in the rocket problem, mass is not constant. (Neither for a running athlete – sweating, exhaling etc implies loss of water, not to talk of fat burned off!)
Assignment Calculate the Forces involved for various values of masses, velocities and times. Note unit of Force is Kgms -2 which in SI Unit is Newton (N)
Last class, we found an operational way of quantifying force. The Home work was for you to play with different values of the different related physical quantities. Values of force can affect values of mass, velocity, or time of the process. Before we take more critical look at: types of forces: Tensile force, compressive force, friction, Air resistance force, Normal force, weight, etc; Nature of Forces: Contact, gravitational, electromagnetic, nuclear And derivative quantities: work,energy, power, action, impulse, moment, torque, etc let’s consider the 3 rd Law.
Newton’s 3 rd Law of motion To every action (force), there is an equal and opposite reaction (force) Forces always exist in pairs. Whenever there is an interaction between two objects, there is a force upon each of the objects. When the interaction ceases, the two objects no longer experience the force [motion then continues uniformly from that point on]. Forces only exist as a result of an interaction When an object exerts a force (the action force) on a second object, the second object also in turn exerts a reaction force on the first object. When two bodies interact, the forces on the bodies from each other, are always equal (magnitude) and in opposite directions.
Newton’s 3 rd Law of motion To every action (force), there is an equal and opposite reaction (force) Some every-day examples: Birds flapping wings to soar. Upthrust. Fishes push water with fins for forward propulsion (same with canoes, etc) Cars push back the road to move forward. (consider car without grip on the road – eg, smooth/muddy road or threadless tire, or jacked-up car!)
Newton’s 3 rd Law of motion To every action (force), there is an equal and opposite reaction (force) One major implication of the third law is the very important law of conservative of momentum. Both Action Force and the Reaction Force produces changes of momentum in the two interacting bodies. Since the two forces are equal and opposite, and act over exactly the same time period, equal changes in momenta are produced in the two different bodies. The relative masses of the bodies will therefore determine what relative velocities they get
Newton’s 3 rd Law of motion To every action (force), there is an equal and opposite reaction (force) Examples: See, the car moves backward after the impact. The Wall also moves backward, even if imperceptibly in this case Recoil of a gun during shooting Remember, it’s momentum (product of mass and velocity) that is conserved. The greater mass has the less velocity after the interaction
Some particular forces A Gravitational Force F g on a body is a pull by another body. In most situations that we shall be dealing with in this course, the other body is the Earth (or some other astronomical body). Here, the force is directed down toward the centre of the earth, and has magnitude F g = mg, [From F = ma] where g here is the acceleration due to gravity (more on this later)
Some particular forces…. Weight W of a body is the magnitude of the upward force needed to balance the gravitational force on the body due to Earth (or some other astronomical body). It is related to the body’s mass by W= mg
Some particular forces…… Frictional Force Is the force on a body when the body slides or attempts to slide along a surface. The force is always parallel to the surface and directed so as to oppose the motion of the body. On a frictionless surface, the frictional force is negligible. When a body moves through air, friction is termed air-resistance. In fluid, friction is reflected as viscosity.
Illustration of Gravitation Force, Weight, Air resistance/Friction g is the same, but with air resistance net force is reduced. More later…..
Normal Force... Normal Force N is the force on a body from a surface against which the body presses. The normal force is always perpendicular (Normal) to the surface Illustrate amaama F ffFffF gmggmg N i j See text: 6-4
Tension Tension: When a cord is under tension, it pulls on a body at each of its ends. The pull is directed along the cord, away from the point of attachment to each body. For a massless cord (a cord with negligible mass), the pulls at both ends of the cord have the same magnitude T, even if the cord runs around a massless, frictionless pulley (a pulley with negligible mass and negligible friction on its axle to oppose its rotation).

More on Friction, Normal reaction, Gravitation (lesson 3) We want to look a little more closely at some of the very important Forces we come across in using F = ma. friction - resistance encountered by an object as it interacts with its surroundings o static friction - when friction stops an object from moving, static friction opposite & equal to the force being exerted on the object F s ≤ µ s N (where the dimensionless constant µ s is called the coefficient of static friction ) And N is the Normal Reaction.
More on Friction See, the Frictional force depends on the Normal Reaction Force of friction acts to oppose motion: – Parallel to surface. N – Perpendicular to Normal force. – Since f F = N, the force of friction does not depend on the area of the surfaces in contact a = 0 ma = 0 F ffFffF gmggmg N i j

Incline planes…. F grav acts vertically downwards F norm acts normally from the plane F fric acts parallel to the plane
Here, we replace the force of gravity by two components. Then solve for the net force and acceleration the usual way
Example A 100-kg crate is sliding down an inclined plane. The plane is inclined at an angle of 30 o The coefficient of friction between the crate and the incline is 0.3. Determine the net force and acceleration of the crate. First, find the force of gravity acting upon the crate and the components of this force parallel and perpendicular to the incline. The force of gravity is 980 N (mg) F parallel = 490 N (980 N sin 30 degrees) and F perpendicular = 849 N (980 N cos30 degrees).
Example A 100-kg crate is sliding down an inclined plane. The plane is inclined at an angle of 30 o The coefficient of friction between the crate and the incline is 0.3. Determine the net force and acceleration of the crate. Now the normal force can be determined to be 849 N (it must balance the perpendicular component of the weight vector).it must balance the perpendicular component of the weight vector The force of friction can be determined from the value of the normal force and the coefficient of friction; F frict is 255 N (F frict = "mu"*F norm = N).
Example A 100-kg crate is sliding down an inclined plane. The plane is inclined at an angle of 30 o The coefficient of friction between the crate and the incline is 0.3. Determine the net force and acceleration of the crate. The net force is the vector sum of all the forces. The forces directed perpendicular to the incline balance; the forces directed parallel to the incline do not balance. The net force is 235 N (490 N N). The acceleration is 2.35 m/s/s (F net /m = 235 N/100 kg).
see, we can repeat the last problem, substituting ‘car’ for ‘crate.’ It’s exactly the same problem.
Gravitation NEWTON’S LAW OF UNIVERSAL GRAVITATION Every particle in the Universe attracts every other particle with a force that is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. [Irrespective of intervening medium] Where G = x N.m 2 /kg 2 (a very weak force!)
Example: Tolu, Tunde, Titi and Tope are located at the four corners of a square auditorium (length 15m). If each of these students has a mass of 60 kg, what is the net gravitational force on one of them due to the other 3? F 1 =F 12 +F 13 +F 14 R 13 2 = R R 14 2 R 12 R 13 R 14
Moment (Torque) of a Force Several derivatives of Force are used in Physics: eg Work /Energy (Force and distance moved by force) Power (Work/Time) Impulse (Force * Time) Moment (Force and distance from a fulcrum/axis) etc
The Torque is measure of the tendency of a force to rotate an object about some axis. It is a vector quantity τ = F x d The turning effect, when only the perpendicular distance between the Force and the turning axis is used, is called Moment Moment = Force X perpendicular distance from the turning point/axis

Conditions for Equilibrium 1. No net force Sum of forces along x axis = 0 ( ΣF x = 0) Sum of forces along y axis = 0. ( ΣF y = 0) [Sum of forces along z axis = 0. ( ΣF z = 0)] 2.No net moment 3.Please check textbooks for several examples.
Homework: The leg and cast in the figure weigh 220N (w 1 ). Determine the weight w 2 and the angle α needed so that no force is exerted on the hip joint by the leg plus cast. (note, if all the forces did not act on the same point as in this case, there would be turning effects also to consider).
Homework: Two packing crates of masses 10.0 kg and 5.00 kg are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley as in the figure. The 5.00 kg crate lies on a smooth incline of angle 40.0 o. Find the acceleration of the 5.00 kg crate and the tension in the string.
