Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education Inc. Newton’s laws Newton’s First Law of Motion: when forces are balanced the object will keep its motion/velocity. Newton’s Second Law of Motion: F = m a, force causes changes to the motion/velocity. Newton’s Third Law of Motion: action-reaction pairs Yet: The laws are simple to state but intricate in their application. Let’s do some iClicker questions first.

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education Inc. Free-body diagrams A free-body diagram is a sketch showing all the forces acting on an object. Why do we need it? What is the tension force in the rope?

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education Inc. Free-body diagrams We need to isolate the objects and study the forces on each of them. T1 W1 T1 W2 T2 W3 Note: W = m g action-reaction pairs

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education Inc. Free-body diagrams We can apply the 2 nd law to each of the following, or to the group. T1 W1 T1 W2 T2 W3 The three objects share the same acceleration: a = (F-W1-W2-W3) / (m1+m2+m3) = F/(m1+m2+m3) – g = 200/(6+4+5) – 9.8 = 3.53 m/s 2

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education Inc. Free-body diagrams Now we focus on m1 and solve for tension T1. T1 W1 for the upper mass, apply the 2 nd law: F-W1-T1 = m1 a we have: T1 = F-W1-m1 a = 200-6*9.8-6*3.53 = 120.02 N

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education Inc. Free-body diagrams Similarly we focus on the rope and solve for tension T2. T1 W2 T2 T1-W2-T2 = m2 a we have: T2 = T1-W2-m2 a = 120.02-4*9.8-4*3.53 = 66.7 N

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education Inc. Free-body diagrams We can double check the result on the lower mass: T2 W3 T2-W3 = m3 a we have calculated: T2 = 66.7 N a = 3.53 m/s2 66.7 – 5*9.8 = 5 * 3.53? true!
