GRAVITATIONAL MOTION

Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation
states that every particle in the universe attracts every other particle with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Gravity is a consequence of mass
Gravity is a consequence of mass. The force of gravity between two objects is directly proportional to the product of the objects’ masses. The force of gravity between two objects is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the two objects’ centers of mass. 𝐹=𝐺 𝑚 1 𝑚 2 𝑟 2

Torque Is the measure of how effectively a force causes rotation.

Torques in equilibrium

CIRCULAR MOTION

Linear Motion d – distance (in meters) v – velocity (in meters/second) a – acceleration (in meters/second2) Distance = 2r

Linear/Tangential Velocity
Objects moving in a circle still have a linear velocity = distance/time. This is often called tangential velocity, since the direction of the linear velocity is tangent to the circle. v

Angular Motion  – angular displacement (in radians)  – angular velocity (in radians/second)  – angular acceleration (in radians/second2) r – radius of circle (in meters)

Circular Motion Terms The point or line that is the center of the circle is the axis of rotation. If the axis of rotation is inside the object, the object is rotating (spinning). If the axis of rotation is outside the object, the object is revolving.

Angular Velocity Objects moving in a circle also have a rotational or angular velocity, which is the rate angular position changes. Rotational velocity is measured in degrees/second, rotations/minute (rpm), etc. Common symbol, w (Greek letter omega) Dq 𝜔= ∆𝜃 ∆𝑡

Rotational & Linear Velocity
If an object is rotating: All points on the object have the same rotational (angular) velocity. All points on the object do not have the same linear (tangential) velocity. Linear velocity of a point depends on: The rotational velocity of the point. More rotational velocity means more linear velocity. The distance from the point to the axis of rotation. More distance from the axis means more linear velocity In symbols: v r w v = r w

Linear to Angular d = r vT = r aT = r  r

Angular & Linear Velocity
If an object is rotating: All points on the object have the same Angular velocity. All points on the object do not have the same linear (tangential) velocity.

Angular & Linear Velocity
Linear velocity of a point depends on: The Angular velocity of the point. More rotational velocity means more linear velocity. The distance from the point to the axis of rotation. More distance from the axis means more linear velocity.

Acceleration As an object moves around a circle, its direction of motion is constantly changing. Therefore its velocity is changing. Therefore an object moving in a circle is constantly accelerating.

Centripetal Acceleration
The acceleration of an object moving in a circle points toward the center of the circle. This is called a centripetal (center pointing) acceleration. ac

Centripetal Acceleration
The centripetal acceleration depends on: The velocity of the object. The radius of the circle.

Tangential vs. Centripetal
tangential and centripetal acceleration are perpendicular to one another.

Centripetal Force Newton’s Second Law says that if an object is accelerating, there must be a net force on it. For an object moving in a circle, this is called the centripetal force. The centripetal force points toward the center of the circle.

Centripetal Force In order to make an object revolve about an axis, the net force on the object must pull it toward the center of the circle. This force is called a centripetal (center seeking) force. Fc

Centripetal Force Centripetal force on an object depends on:
The object’s mass - more mass means more force. The object’s velocity - more speed means more force. And…

Centripetal Force The centripetal force on an object also depends on:
The object’s distance from the axis (radius). If linear velocity is held constant, more distance requires less force. If rotational velocity is held constant, more distance requires more force.

Centripetal Force

Circular Motion #21 A 50 kg runner moving at a speed of 8.8 m/s rounds a bend with a radius of 25 m. A) Find the centripetal acceleration of the runner B) what supplied the force needed to give this acceleration to the runner?

“Centrifugal Force” “Centrifugal force” is a fictitious force - it is not an interaction between 2 objects, and therefore not a real force. Nothing pulls an object away from the center of the circle. What is erroneously attributed to “centrifugal force” is actually the action of the object’s inertia - whatever velocity it has (speed + direction) it wants to keep.

As a car makes a turn, the force of friction acting upon the turned wheels of the car provide the centripetal force required for circular motion.

As a bucket of water is tied to a string and spun in a circle, the force of tension acting upon the bucket provides the centripetal force required for circular motion.

As the moon orbits the Earth, the force of gravity acting upon the moon provides the centripetal force required for circular motion.

Without a centripetal force, an object in motion continues along a straight-line path.
With a centripetal force, an object in motion will be accelerated and change its direction The tendency of a moving object to continue in a straight line in the absence of an unbalanced force and to turn in a circle in the presence of a inward-directed force (i.e., centripetal force) has been experienced by any passenger in an automobile. When the car makes a sudden turn, the passengers tend to continue in their straight line path. This straight line motion continues until the presence of a side door or another passenger pushes upon the passenger in order to accelerate him/her towards the center of the turn. The force experienced by the passenger is an inward force; without it, the passenger would slide out of the car.

Feelings of weightlessness and heaviness are associated with the normal force; they have little to do with the force of gravity. A person who feels weightless has not lost weight; the force of gravity acting upon the person is the same magnitude as it always is. Witness in the animation above that the force of gravity is everywhere the same. The normal force however has a small magnitude at the top of the loop (where the rider often feels weightless) and a large magnitude at the bottom of the loop (where the rider often feels heavy). The normal force is large at the bottom of the loop because in order for the net force to be directed inward, the normal force must be greater than the outward gravity force. At the top of the loop, the gravity force is directed inward and thus, there is no need for a large normal force in order to sustain the circular motion. The fact that a rider experiences a large force exerted by the seat upon her body when at the bottom of the loop is the explanation of why she feels heavy. In actuality, she is not heavier; she is only experiencing the large magnitude of force which is normally exerted by seats upon heavy people while at rest.

Banking Curve When an automobile is driven around a sharp turn on a perfectly level road, friction between the tires and the road provides the centripetal force. If this centripetal force is not adequate, the car may slide off the road. The maximum speed with which a car can negotiate a turn of a given radius.

Banking of a Cyclist A cyclist provides himself the necessary centripetal force by leaning inward on a horizontal track, while going around a curve. The cyclist should bend through an angle  to have the necessary centripetal force while going around a curved path.

Circular Motion #22 What is the maximum speed at which an automobile can negotiate a curve of radius 100m with out sliding, if the coefficient of static friction is 0.7?

Circular Motion #23 A car travels at a constant speed of 13.4 m/s on a level circular turn of radius 50m. What is the minimum coefficient of static friction between the tires and roadway in order that the car makes the circular turn without sliding?

Circular Motion #24 Find the required banking angle for a curve of radius 300m if the curve is to be negotiated at a speed of 80 km/h without the need of a frictional force.
