Forces Change Motion Force Force- push or a pull Can speed up or slow down the motion of an object or change its direction without changing its speed.
Forces are VECTORS Have a size and direction
Balanced Forces Ex: Physics book at rest on a table top. Two forces are acting upon the book. Gravity pushes down on the book. The table pushes up on the book Both forces are equal in size/magnitude/number and opposite in direction
Balanced Forces- The forces are balanced The book is said to be at equilibrium. No unbalanced force acting upon the book When all the forces acting upon an object balance each other, the object will be at equilibrium; it will not accelerated.
Balanced Forces A person standing upon the ground. Two forces acting upon the person. Gravity exerts a downward force. The floor of the floor exerts an upward force.
Balanced Forces These two forces are of equal magnitude/size In opposite directions They balance each other. The person is at equilibrium. There is no unbalanced force acting upon the person
Balanced vs. Unbalanced Forces Net Force-Net Force- The overall force acting on a object when ALL the forces are combined NET FORCE is ZERO zero.If the NET FORCE is ZERO all of the forces acting on the object are zero.
Balanced vs. Unbalanced BALANCEDBALANCED forces are the same as having no force at all. motion of an object doesn’t changeThe motion of an object doesn’t change
Unbalanced Forces Change the motion of an object
Balanced vs. Unbalanced If one of the basketball players pushes with a grater force than the other player, the ball will move in the direction that player is pushing. The motion of the ball changes because the forces on the ball are UNBALANCED.
Balanced forces Don’t change an object’s speed or direction A unbalanced force is needed to change an object’s motion
Sir Isaac Newton lived during the 1600s His laws of motion explain: Rest Constant motion Accelerated motion Describe how balanced and unbalanced forces act to cause these states of motion.
Sir Isaac Newton Built his ideas on Galileo Galilei’s ideas Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion
Newton’s First Law Object at rest remains at rest, and objects in motion remain in motion with the same velocity, unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Newton’s First Law The ball is in motion with the same velocity, unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Have you ever been riding in a car when the driver suddenly slammed on the brakes? How did your body move as the car came to a stop? You probably felt your body move forward..
When you felt this happening you experienced Newton's first law of motion. Newton's first law of motion says that an object in motion will stay in motion and an object at rest will stay at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force
Newton called his first law inertia. In the car your body was in motion, traveling at the same speed as the car. When the car stopped, your body stayed in motion. If you were not wearing a seatbelt and you were traveling very fast, your body could continue to move forward through the windshield!
Try the following activity to demonstrate this law! Place a 3x5 card on top of a glass. Put a coin on the center of the card. Flick the card horizontally with your finger. What happens to the coin? Explain what happened to the coin using Newton's first law.
Inertia Resistance of an object to changeResistance of an object to change in the speed or direction of its motion Newton’s first law mass inertiaWhen you measure the mass of an object you are also measuring its inertia emptyIt is easier to push or pull an empty box than the same box when it full of books
Main Ideas Objects tend to stay at rest unless something hits them. Things keep on doing what they are doing unless something hits them. Inertia- the name given to an object’s tendency to keep doing what it is doing
Force Mass x Acceleration F= m x a Units are Newtons (N) kg x m/s 2
Newton’s 2 nd Law The acceleration of an object increases with increased force Decreases with increased mass Is in the same direction of the force
Newton’s 2 nd Law- Ties Together- Force, Mass, Acceleration mass size of the forceAcceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the size of the force applied loses massIf an object loses mass, it can gain acceleration if the force remains the same
Newton’s 2 nd Law increases INCREASED MASSAcceleration of an object increases with INCREASED FORCE and decreases with INCREASED MASS. ACCELERATESThe direction in which an object ACCELERATES is the same as the direction of the force.
Newton’s 2 nd Law Who is exerting the most force behind the cart?
Newton’s 2 nd Law Which cart has the largest mass? Which is the easiest to push?
Main Ideas- Newton’s 2 nd Law Small mass leads to LARGE acceleration Large mass leads to SMALL acceleration
Main Ideas A net force acting on an object causes the object to accelerate. A net force acting on an object causes an object to accelerate.
Centripetal Force Any force that keeps an object moving in a circle This force points toward the center of the circle Without this force object would go flying off in a straight line Centripetal force keeps the planets in orbit
Spinning stuff- Centripetal Force Spinning a bucket of water over your head without spilling a drop, you are also applying a centripetal force. If you let go of the bucket, it will move in a straight line Centripetal force is always directed at the centre of an object.
Greater acceleration = greater centripetal force More mass requires more centripetal force to have the same circular speed as a less massive object. No matter the mass of an object, if it moves in a circle, its force and acceleration are directed to the center of the circle
Newton’s 3 rd Law For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction Action and Reaction ForcesAction and Reaction Forces –Rockets going into space –Squid and Jellyfish movement
Types of Forces Contact Gravity Friction
Types of Forces Contact Force- first secondContact Force- when one object pushes or pulls another object by touching it, the first object is applying a contact force to the second.
Balanced Forces vs. Action/Reaction Forces Balanced Forces act on a single object Action and Reaction Forces act on DIFFERENT objects
What are examples of contact forces?
Momentum Found in moving objects Measure of mass in motion p= mv momentum = p m= mass v= velocity Units kg x m/s
Momentum More mass= more momentum Momentum depends on mass Momentum takes into account velocity Is a vector (has size and direction)
Collision Two objects in close contact exchange energy and momentum
Conservation of Momentum Total momentum of a system of objects do not change, as long as no outside forces are acting on that system To find total momentum of objects moving in the SAME direction, add the momenta of the objects. Objects traveling in opposite directions, subtract the momentum from one another.
