1 Chapter Four Newton's Laws
2 In this chapter we will consider Newton's three laws of motion. There is one consistent word in these three laws and that is "body" (newtonian body). We will define force through the motion it cause on mass.
3 Newton's Laws (1) First Law: Every body of matter continue in a state of rest or moves with constant velocity in a straight line unless compelled by a force to change state. Second Law: When net unbalanced forces act on a body, they will produce a change in the momentum (mv) of that body proportional to the vector sum of the force. The direction of the change in momentum is that of the line of action of the resultant force.
4 Third Law: Forces, arising from the interaction of particles, act in such a way that the force exerted by one particle on the second is equal and opposite to the force exerted by the second on the first and both are directed along the line joining the two particles. (Or, action and reaction are equal and opposite).
5 Newton's Laws (2) The average force is defined as Let a = dv/dt, the force is define as The forms of Newton's law that we will use are
6 Mass Let m 0 be the standard kilogram. If we exert a force on the mass with no other forces to interfere, we can measure an acceleration a 0. If we apply this same force to a different mass m 1, we measure a different acceleration a 1. Then and
7 Force has units of mass length/time 2 or kilogram-meter per second 2 (newton, N). A force of 1 N is that force which causes a mass of 1 kg to be accelerated at a rate of 1 m/sec 2.
8 Weight The rate of free fall of all objects in a vacuum at a given point on earth is the same. The downward acceleration at sea level is approximately the same at all locations, or g= 9.8 m/sec 2. Weight = mg.
9 Applications of Newton's Laws-- Example 4-2 A child pulls a toy boat through the water at constant velocity by a string parallel to the surface of the water on which he exerts a force of 1 N. What is the force of resistance of the water to the motion of the boat? See Fig Sol : Because constant velocity means zero acceleration,
11 Applications of Newton's Laws-- Example 4-3 Two ropes attached to a ceiling at the angles shown in Fig. 4-3 support a block of weight 50 N. What are the tensions T 1 and T 2 in the ropes? Sol : If we examine the newtonian body, we see that it is not accelerating in either the x or y directions. We have
14 Substituting into second equation
15 Applications of Newton's Laws-- Example 4-5 A block of mass 8 kg is released from rest on a frictionless incline that is at an angle of 37 o with the horizontal (Fig. 4-6a). What is its acceleration down the incline? Sol: See Figure 4-6b.
17 From Newton's second law, we have
18 Two important points: Because the acceleration is independent of the mass, all masses starting from rest at the same height on the same plane will have the same acceleration and, therefore, reach the bottom at the same time. The acceleration is less than the acceleration of gravity because only a component of the force of gravity on the body is directed down the plane.
19 Applications of Newton's Laws-- Example 4-6 Masses of 2 kg and 4 kg connected by a cord are suspended over a frictionless pulley (Fig. 4-7a). What is their acceleration when released? Sol: Three important facts: 1. Because the pulley is frictionless, the tension in the rope is the same on both sides. 2. The tensions are not the same as in a static situation.
21 3. There are two newtonian bodies and while m 1 moves upward with a positive acceleration, m 2 moves with an acceleration having the same magnitude but directed downward. See Figure 4-7b. For body m 1 we have
22 For body m 2 we have
23 Friction There is a force equal and opposite to the force that we exert that resists the motion of the object. This resistive force is called the force of friction. There are two types of friction, static and kinetic. The starting friction is called static. The friction of motion is called kinetic. Static friction is larger than kinetic friction. We will only consider kinetic friction. The force of friction is proportional to the normal force (mg = N). See Figure 4-8. The force of friction is f = μN, where μ is called the coefficient of friction.
25 Example 4-7 A force of 10 N is required to keep a box of mass 20 kg moving at a constant velocity across a level floor (Fig. 4-9). What is the coefficient of friction? Sol: Since a x = 0 and a y = 0, we have
27 and But
28 Example 4-8 A block is places on a plane inclines to the horizontal at 37 o. The coefficient of friction between the plane and the block is μ = 0.4. When the block is released what is its acceleration down the plane? (See Fig )
30 Sol The forces along the plane are the force of friction f upward and the component of the force of gravity F D downward. Choose the downward direction as positive and we have since
