Newton’s laws of motion Net force Action/reaction Inertial Reference frame Non-inertial Ref frame Mass Acceleration Friction Inertial Force Non-inertial Force Q: Define as many of these concepts as you can?
First Law: Law of Inertia An object at rest (v=0) remains at rest AND an object at constant velocity (v=c) remains at constant velocity UNLESS acted upon by an unbalanced force (Fnet not equal zero). Q: How does this animation relate to first law? Q: What is state of motion? Q: Where is unbalanced force applied ?
Second Law: force definition Acceleration is produced when a unbalanced force acts on a mass. The greater the mass of the object being accelerated the greater the amount of force needed to accelerate the object.
Third law: action/reaction For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Force is always an interaction between two objects that occurs and an action/reaction force pair. No one object applies a force, both apply equal and opposite force on each other. If force was not always an action reaction pair, momentum would NOT be conserved. The rocket's action is to push down on the ground with the force of its powerful engines, and the reaction is that the ground pushes the rocket upwards with an equal force.
Three Laws of classical mechanics 1.In the absence of a net force, a body either is at rest or moves in a straight line with constant speed.forcebodyspeed 2. A body experiencing a force F experiences an acceleration a related to F by F = ma, where m is the mass of the body. Alternatively, force is equal to the time derivative of momentum.accelerationmasstime derivative momentum 3. Whenever a first body exerts a force F on a second body, the second body exerts a force −F on the first body. F and −F are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.
First Law Redux Newton's first law is also called the law of inertia. It states that if the vector sum of all forces (that is, the net force) acting on an object is zero, then the acceleration of the object is zero and its velocity is constant.inertiavector sumvelocity The first point needs no comment, but the second seems to violate everyday experience. For example, a hockey puck sliding along ice does not move forever; rather, it slows and eventually comes to a stop. According to Newton's first law, the puck comes to a stop because of a net external force applied in the direction opposite to its motion. This net external force is due to a frictional force between the puck and the ice, as well as a frictional force between the puck and the air. If the ice were frictionless and the puck were traveling in a vacuum, the net external force on the puck would be zero and it would travel with constant velocity so long as its path were unobstructed.frictional Implicit in the discussion of Newton's first law is the concept of an inertial reference frame, which for the purposes of Newtonian mechanics is defined to be a reference frame in which Newton's first law holds true. There is a class of frames of reference (called inertial frames) relative to which the motion of a particle not subject to forces is a straight line. Newton placed the law of inertia first to establish frames of reference for which the other laws are applicable.To understand why the laws are restricted to inertial frames, consider a ball at rest inside an airplane on a runway. From the perspective of an observer within the airplane (that is, from the airplane's frame of reference) the ball will appear to move backward as the plane accelerates forward. This motion appears to contradict Newton's second law (F = ma), since, from the point of view of the passengers, there appears to be no force acting on the ball that would cause it to move. However, Newton's first law does not apply: the stationary ball does not remain stationary in the absence of external force. Thus the reference frame of the airplane is not inertial, and Newton's second law does not hold in the form F = ma.inertial reference framereference frame frames of reference
Second law redux Newton's second law states that the force applied to a body produces a proportional acceleration; the relationship between the two is where F is the force applied, m is the mass of the body, and a is the body's acceleration. If the body is subject to multiple forces at the same time, then the acceleration is proportional to the vector sum (that is, the net force):vector sum The second law can also be shown to relate the net force and the momentum p of the body:momentum Therefore, Newton's second law also states that the net force is equal to the time derivative of the body's momentum: time derivativemomentum
Second Law redux: Impulse An impulse I occurs when a force F acts over an interval of time Δt, and it is given byimpulse Since force is the time derivative of momentum, it follows that This relation between impulse and momentum is closer to Newton's wording of the second law. Impulse is a concept frequently used in the analysis of collisions and impacts.
The laws: relationship to the conservation laws In modern physics, the laws of conservation of momentum, energy, and angular momentum are of more general validity than Newton's laws, since they apply to both light and matter, and to both classical and non-classical physics.conservationmomentumenergyangular momentum This can be stated simply, "Momentum, energy and angular momentum cannot be created or destroyed.“ Because force is the time derivative of momentum, the concept of force is redundant and subordinate to the conservation of momentum, and is not used in fundamental theories (e.g. quantum mechanics, quantum electrodynamics, general relativity, etc.).quantum mechanicsquantum electrodynamicsgeneral relativity
Analysis of ball and feather fall in vacuum A vacuum is required to prove gravitational acceleration of an object is independent of its mass. The vacuum means that no air molecules are present to create friction on the falling object. This friction would resists the objects acceleration (greater velocity). Thus, any friction means that an object cannot be in a free-fall state. The vacuum is NOT why the feather and ball fall at same rate: i.e., hit the bottom at same time with same velocity. The fact that gravity would be very constant over a few 10’s of meters is also NOT why the masses fall at same rate. So, why does the feather and ball fall at same rate in a frictionless (airless) environment?
Why acceleration is independent of mass (without friction) Larger Mass = Larger gravity force Larger Mass = Larger inertial force So, Larger gravity force is resisted by larger inertial force This means acceleration is independent of mass
Position, velocity and acceleration 1-D kinematic equations of motionProjectile velocity along path What is acceleration at v y = 0 point? x: position (m) v: velocity (m/s) a: acceleration (m/s 2 ) a = ∆v/ ∆t (m/s/s = m/s*1/s = m/s 2 ) v = ∆x/ ∆t (m/s = m/s) What is relation between x and t?
acceleration Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. At any point on a trajectory, the magnitude of the acceleration is given by the rate of change of velocity in both magnitude and direction at that point. The true acceleration at time t is found in the limit as time interval Δt → 0. In physics, and more specifically kinematics, acceleration is the change in velocity over time.  Because velocity is a vector, it can change in two ways: a change in magnitude and/or a change in direction. In one dimension, i.e. a line, acceleration is the rate at which something speeds up or slows down. However, as a vector quantity, acceleration is also the rate at which direction changes.  Acceleration has the dimensions L T −2. In SI units, acceleration is measured in metres per second squared (m/s 2 ).physicskinematicsvelocity vectorratevector dimensionsLTSImetres per second squared In common speech, the term acceleration commonly is used for an increase in speed (the magnitude of velocity); a decrease in speed is called deceleration. In physics, a change in the direction of velocity also is an acceleration: for rotary motion, the change in direction of velocity results in centripetal (toward the center) acceleration; where as the rate of change of speed is a tangential acceleration. magnitude
Linear free-fall: Zero to 30 m/s (60 mph) in 3 seconds!
Orbital free-fall If initial ball velocity this is slow (A,B), the ball falls back to earth tracing out a parabolic path. Called ballistic trajectory. If initial ball velocity is too fast (E) (>escape velocity), the ball leaves earth traveling outward towards infinity and never comes back. Given correct initial ball velocity (C), the ball will go into orbit which means it is in continual free-fall as pull of gravity acts perpendicular to velocity vector to accelerate ball towards earth by the same amount that the earth’s surface curves away. Question: what would happen if you were placed at 1000 km above the earth and let go with no initial velocity ?
Centripetal acceleration Why if string breaks does ball moves off in a straight line?
Gravity field in Space shuttle The gravity field strength diminishes as 1/r 2 where r is reckoned with respect to center of the earth. At earth’s surface 6400 km from center of earth, the gravity field strength is 9.8 m/s 2. So what is gravity field strength at 380 km above the earth’s surface which is the normal height that the space shuttle orbits. Orbital velocity at 380 km height is about 17,400 miles per hour (7800 m/s). The Orbital period at 380 km height is about 92 minutes. Centripetal acceleration for stable orbit must be: a = v 2 /r = 7800 2 / 6.75e 6 =9.01 m/s 2. Does 8.74 = 9.01 m/s 2, it is close. I used approximate numbers from the web. The gravity field is 88% of the gravity at the surface. So, why are the people weightless?
Weightlessness in orbit Weightlessness in an orbiting spacecraft is physically identical to free-fall, with the difference that gravitational acceleration causes a net change in the direction, rather than the magnitude, of the spacecraft's velocity. This is because the acceleration vector is perpendicular to the velocity vector.orbitingvelocityvector In typical free-fall, the acceleration of gravity acts along the direction of an object's velocity, linearly increasing its speed as it falls toward the Earth, or slowing it down if it is moving away from the Earth. In the case of an orbiting spacecraft, which has a velocity vector largely perpendicular to the force of gravity, gravitational acceleration does not produce a net change in the object's speed, but instead acts centripetally, to constantly "turn" the spacecraft's velocity as it moves around the Earth. Because the acceleration vector turns along with the velocity vector, they remain perpendicular to each other. Without this change in the direction of its velocity vector, the spacecraft would move in a straight line, leaving the Earth altogether.speedcentripetally
Terminal velocity (falling through fluid) In fluid dynamics an object is moving at its terminal velocity if its speed is constant due to the restraining force exerted by the air, water or other fluid through which it is moving.fluid dynamics A free-falling object achieves its terminal velocity when the downward force of gravity (F g ) equals the upward force of drag (F d ). This causes the net force on the object to be zero, resulting in an acceleration of zero. gravitydragnet force  When a falling object has reached terminal velocity, is it still in free-fall state ?
Fields extend or propagate to infinite Gravity field from mass Electric field from charge Sound source wave field Electro-magnetic wave field For r=0, f(r) is undefined (infinite). For limit as r →∞, f(r) = 0. For all other r values (domain), f(r) is finite. Moral of story: Fields never die. The gravitational effects of you, me, the planet, anything, extends to infinity! Although at far distances, the effects becomes so small as to not be measurable.
