1 Equilibrium and Torque

2 Equilibrium An object is in “Equilibrium” when: 1.There is no net force acting on the object 2.There is no net Torque (we’ll get to this later) In other words, the object is NOT experiencing linear acceleration or rotational acceleration. We’ll get to this later

3 Static Equilibrium An object is in “Static Equilibrium” when it is NOT MOVING.

4 Dynamic Equilibrium An object is in “Dynamic Equilibrium” when it is MOVING with constant linear velocity and/or rotating with constant angular velocity.

5 Equilibrium Let’s focus on condition 1: net force = 0 The x components of force cancel The y components of force cancel

6 Condition 1: No net Force We have already looked at situations where the net force = zero. Determine the magnitude of the forces acting on each of the 2 kg masses at rest below. 60° 30°

7 Condition 1: No net Force ∑F x = 0and∑F y = 0 mg = 20 N N = 20 N ∑F y = 0 N - mg = 0 N = mg = 20 N

8 Condition 1: No net Force ∑F x = 0and∑F y = 0 ∑F y = 0 T1 + T2 - mg = 0 T1 = T2 = T T + T = mg 2T = 20 N T = 10 N T1 = 10 N 20 N T2 = 10 N

9 Condition 1: No net Force 60° mg =20 N f = 17.4 N N = 10 N F x - f = 0 f = F x = mgsin 60 f = 17.4 N N = mgcos 60 N = 10 N

10 Condition 1: No net Force ∑F x = 0and∑F y = 0 30° mg = 20 N T1 = 20 NT2 = 20 N ∑F y = 0 T1 y + T2 y - mg = 0 2T y = mg = 20 N T y = mg/2 = 10 N T2 = 20 N T2 x T2 y = 10 N 30° T y /T = sin 30 T = T y /sin 30 T = (10 N)/sin30 T = 20 N ∑F x = 0 T2x - T1x = 0 T1 x = T2 x Equal angles ==> T1 = T2 Note: unequal angles ==> T1 ≠ T2

11 Condition 1: No net Force ∑F x = 0and∑F y = 0 Note: The y-components cancel, so T1 y and T2 y both equal 10 N 30° mg = 20 N T1 = 20 NT2 = 20 N

12 Condition 1: No net Force ∑F x = 0and∑F y = 0 30° 20 N T1 = 40 N T2 = 35 N ∑F y = 0 T1 y - mg = 0 T1 y = mg = 20 N T1 y /T1 = sin 30 T1 = T y /sin 30 = 40 N ∑F x = 0 T2 - T1 x = 0 T2 = T1 x = T1cos30 T2 = (40 N)cos30 T2 = 35 N

13 Condition 1: No net Force ∑F x = 0and∑F y = 0 Note: The x-components cancel The y-components cancel 30° 20 N T1 = 40 N T2 = 35 N

14 30°60° Condition 1: No net Force A Harder Problem! a. Which string has the greater tension? b. What is the tension in each string?

15 a. Which string has the greater tension? ∑F x = 0 so T1 x = T2 x 30°60° T1 T2 T1 must be greater in order to have the same x-component as T2.

16 ∑F y = 0 T1 y + T2 y - mg = 0 T1sin60 + T2sin30 - mg = 0 T1sin60 + T2sin30 = 20 N Solve simultaneous equations! ∑F x = 0 T2x-T1x = 0 T1 x = T2 x T1cos60 = T2cos30 30°60° T1 T2 Note: unequal angles ==> T1 ≠ T2 What is the tension in each string?

17 Equilibrium An object is in “Equilibrium” when: 1.There is no net force acting on the object 2.There is no net Torque In other words, the object is NOT experiencing linear acceleration or rotational acceleration.

18 What is Torque? Torque is like “twisting force” The more torque you apply to a wheel the more quickly its rate of spin changes

19 Math Review: 1.Definition of angle in “radians” 2.One revolution = 360° = 2π radians ex: π radians = 180° ex: π/2 radians = 90° s r

20 Linear vs. Rotational Motion Linear DefinitionsRotational Definitions

21 Linear vs. Rotational Velocity A car drives 400 m in 20 seconds: a. Find the avg linear velocity A wheel spins thru an angle of 400π radians in 20 seconds: a. Find the avg angular velocity

22 Linear vs. Rotational Net Force ==> linear acceleration The linear velocity changes Net Torque ==> angular acceleration The angular velocity changes (the rate of spin changes)

23 Torque Torque is like “twisting force” The more torque you apply to a wheel, the more quickly its rate of spin changes Torque = Frsinø

24 Torque is like “twisting force” Imagine a bicycle wheel that can only spin about its axle. If the force is the same in each case, which case produces a more effective “twisting force”? This one!

25 Torque is like “twisting force” Imagine a bicycle wheel that can only spin about its axle. What affects the torque? 1.The place where the force is applied: the distance “r” 2.The strength of the force 3.The angle of the force r ø F ø

26 Torque is like “twisting force” Imagine a bicycle wheel that can only spin about its axle. What affects the torque? 1.The distance from the axis rotation “r” that the force is applied 2.The component of force perpendicular to the r-vector r ø F ø

27 Imagine a bicycle wheel that can only spin about its axle. Torque = (the component of force perpendicular to r)(r) r ø F ø Torque = Frsinø

28 Torque is like “twisting force” Imagine a bicycle wheel that can only spin about its axle. r ø F ø

29 r ø F ø F r ø Cross “r” with “F” and choose any angle to plug into the equation for torque

30 Torque = (Fsinø)(r) Two different ways of looking at torque r ø F ø Torque = (F)(rsinø) rø F ø r F

31 Imagine a bicycle wheel that can only spin about its axle. Torque = (F)(rsinø) rø F ø F

32 Equilibrium An object is in “Equilibrium” when: 1.There is no net force acting on the object 2.There is no net Torque In other words, the object is NOT experiencing linear acceleration or rotational acceleration.
