What You Will Learn -Newton’s Laws of Motion -Motion Terminology -Sample Problems
Newton’s Three Laws of Motion Newton’s First Law of Motion – An object at rest will remain at rest and an object in motion will continue in motion at a constant velocity in a straight line unless it is acted upon by a net force. This is often called the Law of Inertia because it implies that any mass offers resistance to a change in its velocity. What are other implications? -No applied force to an object means no change in its velocity. Or, if velocity changes, then there has to be a net force that is making that change. -If there is an acceleration, then there has to be a velocity change and a net force present.
Newton’s Three Laws of Motion Newton’s Second Law of Motion – An acceleration is directly proportional to the applied force and inversely proportional to the mass of the object. For us; F = ma.ma. What are the implications? -You can not have a force with out an acceleration, since mass of an object does not change. -Force is a vector (has magnitude and direction).
Newton’s Three Laws of Motion Newton’s Third Law of Motion – States that all forces come in pairs that are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction. To paraphrase; For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. What are the implications? -You can not have a force with out an acceleration, since mass of an object does not change.
Types of Forces -System – An object of interest. -Force – A push or a pull. -Contact Force – Physically touching. -Field Force – Exert without contact. -Agent – It is a contact or field force and is specifically affects a given system. -Free Body Diagram – Physical representation that shows the forces acting on a system. -Net Force – Is the vector sum of the forces acting on a system. Symbolized by F net. -Equilibrium – A system in which the velocity remains constant. Note: an object at rest is just a special case of velocity, namely v = 0. -Weight – The gravitational force experience by an object. F g = mg. -Apparent Weight – A weight that is not true weight, but it is one you experience due to your current conditions.
-Weightlessness – The absents of apparent weight. -Drag Force – The force exerted by a fluid on an object opposing motion through the fluid. Note: air is a fluid. -Interaction Pair – Newton’s Third Law. All forces come in pairs. -Tension – Force exerted by a rope, string, or cable. The rope, string, or cable is generally considered massless. Types of Forces
