2 Newton’s First Law (aka Law of Inertia) Objects maintain their state of motion unless acted on by a net external force.
3 Inertia – resistance to change in motion. Mass – measure of an object’s inertia (in kg)
4 The net force is the total (vector) force on the object Newton’s Second Lawmassaccelerationnet force(m/s2)(Newtons)(kg)The net force is the total (vector) force on the object
5 Newton’s Second Law in words… The net force on object equals the mass of the object x it’s acceleration.The acceleration of an object is inversely proportional to its mass.Given the same net force, a small mass will accelerate more than a larger mass.
6 Units for Mass, Acceleration, and Force System Mass Accel. ForceSI kg m/s2 newton (N)CGS g cm/s2 dyne (dyn)BE slug foot/s2 pound (lb)
7 Weight – force of gravity on a mass (Newtons) F = maW = mgA 1 kg object has a weight of W = mg W = (1 kg)(9.8 m/s2) W= 9.8 N
8 Newton’s Third Law Forces always occur in pairs. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.Forces always occur in pairs.
9 Fhammer on nail = -Fnail on hammer Newton’s Third LawFhammer on nail = -Fnail on hammer
10 Newton’s Third LawIf one object exerts a force on another, then the second object also exerts a force on the first; these forces are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. FA on B = -FB on ARemember that the forces act on different objects and DO NOT cancel out!When determining the motion of an object, only consider the forces acting ON the object.

18 An object must be moving for it to have inertia. FALSEIn a tug of war, the person who pulls with the most force wins.FALSEIf the net force on an object is zero, it can’t be moving.FALSEIn order for you to jump off the ground, you need to exert a force onthe floor that is greater than the force the floor exerts on you.FALSEConstant velocity requires that the acceleration be zero.TRUEAs a ball falls freely, the distance it falls each second is the same.FALSEIf a horse pulls on a wagon at rest, the wagon pulls backequally as much on the horse.TRUEWhen given the same force, a heavy mass will have a largeracceleration than a lighter mass.FALSENeglecting air resistance, all objects fall at the same rate.TRUE
19 If a horse pulls on a wagon at rest, the wagon pulls back equally as much on the horse. Will the wagon be set into motion?a. No, because the forces cancel each other out.b. Yes, because there is a net force acting on the wagon.c. Yes, because there is time delay between action and reaction.d. Yes, only if the horse’s pull on the wagon is larger than the wagon’s pull on the horse.b. Yes, because there is a net force acting on the wagon.An object of mass 5 kg is acted upon by exactly four forces, each of magnitude 10 N. Which of the following could NOT be the resulting acceleration of the object?a. 0 m/s2b. 2 m/s2c. 4 m/s2d. 8 m/s2e m/s2e. The maximum net force would be 40 N; 40N/5kg = 8 m/s2
20 Clearly state Newton’s Three Laws of Motion in your own words.First Law – Objects maintain their state of motion until acted upon by a net external force.Second Law – Given the same force, a more massive object will have a smaller acceleration than a less massive object.F = maThird Law – Every force has an equal and opposite force.
21 Section 4.7 – The Gravitational Force Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation All masses attract each other with a force determined bymasses (in kg)force of attraction (in N)distance b/w mass centers (m)
23 The force of gravity between masses depends on The value of each mass The distance between their center of masses

26 Weightlessness – feeling experienced during free-fall due to lack of support force. Apparent Weight – Weight read by a scale; reaction force applied to the person.True Weight – Actual weight due to gravitational force.Zero g or micro g – Zero acceleration of gravity experienced by astronaut; Not zero gravity, gravity holds them in orbit!

31 Section 4.8 – The Normal Force The normal force (FN) is a support force that a surface exerts on an object.FN = W since net force on box is zero.
32 Section 4.8 – The Normal Force FN > W since box is being pressed down.
33 Section 4.8 – The Normal Force FN < W since box is being lifted up.
34 Section 4.8 – The Normal Force FN is always perpendicular to the surface.
35 Section 4.8 – The Normal Force Apparent Weight – weight read by the scale.True Weight – weight due to gravity.

37 Friction – force that opposes motion. Section 4.9 – FrictionFriction – force that opposes motion.Depends on1. Types of surfaces in contact2. Amount of force pressing surfaces together (the normal force)Does NOT depend on contact surface area (according to the books)
38 Static Friction (fs) – friction holding an object in place. Kinetic Friction (fk) – friction while object is moving.
42 Help with solving problems… 1. Draw a picture of the object; include all forces drawn with the correct direction.2. Write an expression for the net force (ΣF). Have a separate expression for the horizontal (x) and vertical (y) direction.3. Set the net force expression equal to ma.4. Try substituting to eliminate the number of variables. Keep trying!!
