FORCE A force is any influence that can change the velocity of a body. Forces can act either through the physical contact of two objects (contact forces: push or pull) or at a distance (field forces: magnetic force, gravitational force).
FREE BODY DIAGRAMS In all but the simplest problems that involve forces, it is helpful to draw a free body diagram (FBD) of the situation. This is a vector diagram that shows all the forces that act on the body whose motion is being studied. Forces that the body exerts on anything else should not be included, since such forces do not affect the body's motion.
F T force due to tension: a rope or cord F N force normal: acting perpendicular to a surface F f force of friction: opposes motion F g gravitational force or weight, always downward F a applied force: push or pull F s force exerted by a spring 4.1 Complete the free body diagram showing all of the forces acting on the mass M. Be sure to show the direction of each force as an arrow and label each force clearly!
FIRST LAW OF MOTION According to Newton's First Law of Motion: " If no net force acts on it, a body at rest remains at rest and a body in motion remains in motion at constant speed in a straight line." Isaac Newton (1642-1727)
MASS The property a body has of resisting any change in its state of rest or of uniform motion is called inertia. The inertia of a body is related to the amount of matter it contains. A quantitative measure of inertia is mass. The SI unit of mass is the kilogram (kg).
Motion tends to continue unchanged. The elephant at rest tends to remain at rest. Tablecloth trick: Too little force, too little time to overcome "inertia" of tableware.
SECOND LAW OF MOTION According to Newton's Second Law of Motion, the net force acting on a body equals the product of the mass and the acceleration of the body. The direction of the force is the same as that of the acceleration. In equation form: F = ma In the SI system, the unit for force is the newton (N): A newton is that net force which, when applied to a 1-kg mass, gives it an acceleration of 1 m/s 2.
Net force is sometimes designated F. The second law of motion is the key to understanding the behavior of moving bodies since it links cause (force) and effect (acceleration) in a definite way.
4.2 A force of 3000 N is applied to a 1500-kg car at rest. a. What is its acceleration? F = 3000 N m = 1500 kg v o = 0 m/s F = ma = 2 m/s 2 b. What will its velocity be 5 s later? v f = v o + at = 2(5) = 10 m/s
4.3 A 1000 kg car goes from 10 to 20 m/s in 5 s. What force is acting on it? m = 1000 kg v o = 10 m/s v f = 20 m/s t = 5 s F = ma = 2000 N
4.4 A 60-g tennis ball approaches a racket at 15 m/s, is in contact with the racket for 0.005 s, and then rebounds at 20 m/s. Find the average force exerted by the racket. m = 0.06 kg v o = 15 m/s t = 0.005 s v f = - 20 m/s F = ma= - 420 N
4.5 The brakes of a 1000-kg car exert 3000 N. a. How long will it take the car to come to a stop from a velocity of 30 m/s? m = 1000 kg F = -3000 N v o = 30 m/s v f = 0 m/s = - 3 m/s 2 = 10 s b. How far will the car travel during this time? x = v o t+½at 2 = 30(10)+ ½ (-3)(10) 2 = 150 m
THIRD LAW OF MOTION According to Newton's third law of motion, when one body exerts a force on another body, the second body exerts on the first an equal force in opposite direction. The Third Law of Motion applies to two different forces on two different objects: "The action force one object exerts on the other, and the equal but opposite reaction force the second object exerts on the first." Action and reaction forces never balance out because they act on different objects.
4.6 A book rests on a table. a. Show the forces acting on the table and the corresponding reaction forces. b. Why do the forces acting on the table not cause it to move? ACTION: F TB REACTION: F BT The forces F N and F g are balanced.
WEIGHT The weight of a body is the gravitational force with which the Earth attracts the body. Weight (a vector quantity) is different from mass (a scalar quantity). The weight of a body varies with its location near the Earth (or other astronomical body), whereas its mass is the same everywhere in the universe. The weight of a body is the force that causes it to be accelerated downward with the acceleration of gravity g. From the Second Law of Motion: W = mg Units: Newtons (N)
THE NORMAL FORCE A normal force is a force exerted by one surface on another in a direction perpendicular to the surface of contact. Note: The gravitational force and the normal force are not an action-reaction pair.
4.7 A net horizontal force of 4000 N is applied to a car at rest whose weight is 10,000 N. What will the car's speed be after 8 s? F a = 4000 N F g = 10,000 N t = 8s = 1020.4 kg = 3.92 m/s 2 v f = v o + at = 0 +3.92(8) = 3.14 m/s

FRICTION: STATIC AND KINETIC FRICTION Frictional forces act to oppose relative motion between surfaces that are in contact. Such forces act parallel to the surfaces. Static friction occurs between surfaces at rest relative to each other. When an increasing force is applied to a book resting on a table, for instance, the force of static friction at first increases as well to prevent motion. In a given situation, static friction has a certain maximum value called starting friction. When the force applied to the book is greater than the starting friction, the book begins to move across the table.
FRICTION: STATIC AND KINETIC FRICTION The kinetic friction (or sliding friction) that occurs afterward is usually less than the starting friction, so less force is needed to keep the book moving than to start it moving.
COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION The frictional force between two surfaces depends on the normal (perpendicular) force N pressing them together and on the natures of the surfaces. The latter factor is expressed quantitatively in the coefficient of friction (mu) whose value depends on the materials in contact. The frictional force is experimentally found to be: Static friction Kinetic friction
