1 Section 1: NEWTON’S SECOND LAW Chapter 3--FORCESSection 1: NEWTON’S SECOND LAW
2 REVIEW—NEWTON’S 1ST LAW (LAW OF INERTIA) If an object is moving at constant velocity, it keeps moving at that velocity unless a net force acts on it; if an object is at rest, it stays at rest, unless a net force acts on it.
3 INERTIAInertia is the tendency of an object to resist any change in motion.The greater the mass of an object, the greater the inertia.↑ MASS = ↑ INERTIA
4 NEWTON’S SECOND LAWThe net force acting on an object causes the object to accelerate in the direction of the net force. The acceleration of an object is determined by the size of the net force and the mass of the object. (LONG VERSION)ORThis law describes how force, mass, and acceleration are connected. (SHORT VERSION)
5 FORCE AND ACCELERATION The greater the force that is applied to an object, the greater the acceleration will be.Examples…Ball thrown hard = greaterforce and accelerationBall thrown gently = less force and acceleration
6 FORCE AND MASSIf you throw a softball and a baseball as hard as you can…why don’t they have the same speed?The difference is due to their masses.MASS of softball=0.20 kgMASS of baseball=0.14 kg
7 NEWTON’S 2ND LAWThe acceleration of an object depends on its mass, as well as the force, exerted on it.Remember—If more than one force acts on an object, the forces combine to form a net force.NEWTON’S 2ND LAW can be written as the following equationAcceleration =net forcemassORa = Fm
8 SI UNITS The unit of MASS is the kg The unit of ACCELERATION is m/s2 The unit of FORCE is kg x m/s2, which is also called the Newton (N)
9 PROBLEM A student pedaling a bicycle applies a net FORCE of 200 N. The MASS of the rider and the bicycle is 50 kg.What is the ACCELERATION of the bicycle and the rider?
10 SOLVING FOR ACCELERATION a = Fma = 200 N =50 kg4 m/s2
11 PROBLEM MASS of a tennis ball is 0.06 kg ACCELERATION of the ball leaving the racket is 5,500 m/s2What is the FORCE that is applied to the racket?
12 SOLVING FOR FORCEF = maF = (0.06 kg) (5,500 m/s2)F = 330 N
13 PROBLEM A student riding a skateboard applies a net FORCE of 180 N. The ACCELERATION of the skateboard and the rider is 3 m/s2.What is the MASS of the skateboard and the rider?
14 SOLVING FOR MASSm = Fam = 180 N (kg x m/s2)3 m/s2m = 60 kg
15 FRICTIONThe force that opposes motion between 2 surfaces that are touching each otherThe amount of friction depends on 2 factors1. the types of surfaces2. the force pressing the surfaces together
16 FRICTION What causes friction? If 2 surfaces are pressed tightly together, welding or sticking occurs in those areas where the highest bumps come into contact with each other. These areas where the bumps stick together are called microwelds and are the source of friction.
18 STATIC FRICTIONFriction between 2 surfaces that are NOT moving past each other.MICROWELDS have formed between the bottom of the box and the floor.
19 SLIDING FRICTIONForce that opposes the motion of 2 surfaces sliding past each other.Caused by MICROWELDS constantly breaking and then forming again as the box slides across the floor.
20 ROLLING FRICTIONFriction between a rolling object and the surface it ROLLS on.Because of rolling friction, the wheels of a train rotate when they come into contact with the track, rather than sliding over it.
21 ROLLING FRICTIONRolling friction is usually much less than static or sliding friction. That is why it is easier to pull a load in a wagon, rather than pushing it on the ground.
22 AIR RESISTANCEWhen an object falls toward Earth, it is pulled downward by the force of gravity; however, another force called air resistance acts on objects that fall through the air.
23 FORCES THAT OPPOSE MOTION Friction, as well as air resistance, acts in the direction opposite to that of the object’s motion.
24 AIR RESISTANCEThe amount of air resistance on an object depends on the speed, size, and shape of the object (NOT MASS).
26 GRAVITY Anything that has mass is attracted by the force of gravity. According to the law of gravitation, any 2 masses exert an attractive force on each other
27 GRAVITYThe attractive force depends on the mass of the 2 objects and the distance between them.Gravity is 1 of the 4 basic forces. (The other basic forces are the electromagnetic force, the strong nuclear force, and the weak nuclear force.
28 MASS(M) VS. DISTANCE(D) If the mass of either of the objects increases, the gravitational force between them increases. (Left pic) ↑M = ↑GFIf the objects are closer together, the gravitational force between them increases. (Right pic)↓ D=↑GF
29 GRAVITATIONAL ACCELERATION Near Earth’s surface, the gravitational attraction of Earth causes all falling objects to have an acceleration of 9.8 m/s2.As a result, all objects fall with the same acceleration rate, regardless of their mass.
30 GRAVITATIONAL ACCELERATION According to the second law, the force on an object that has an acceleration of 9.8 m/s2 is as follows:F = m x 9.8 m/s2A force has a direction.The force of gravity is always directed downward.
31 WEIGHT (W)The gravitational force exerted on an object is called the object’s weight.You can find the gravitational force or weight, by using Newton’s 2nd Law…
32 EQUATIONSGravitational Force(F)=mass(m) x acceleration due to gravity(a=9.8 m/s2)ORWeight(W)=mass(m) x accelerationdue to gravity(a=9.8 m/s2)***Because gravitational force = weight;mass ≠ weight***Massstays the same; WEIGHTchanges due to gravity
33 WEIGHT AND MASS ARE NOT THE SAME. WEIGHT is a force due to gravity.WEIGHT changes when gravity changes.MASS is a measure of the amount of matter in an object.MASS always stays the same.
34 PROBLEM Mass of a person = 50 kg What is the weight of this person? Weight (W)=mass(m) x 9.8 m/s2W = 50 kg x 9.8 m/s2 =490 kg x m/s2 or 490 N
35 PROBLEM What is my MASS? Mass = 150 poundsConvert to kilograms 1 kg = 2.2 lbs (CONVERSION FACTOR)150 lbs x 1 kg2.2 lbs= kg
36 PROBLEM What is my WEIGHT? W = mass x m/s2 ( accel. due to gravity)W = 68.2 kg x 9.8 m/s2W = kg x m/s2OR N
37 PROJECTILE MOTIONAnything that is thrown or shot through the air is called a projectile.Projectiles follow a curved path, because they have horizontal and vertical velocities.Example—Force from a thrown ball—horizontal velocityForce from gravity—vertical velocityRESULT: curved path
38 CENTRIPETAL FORCECentipetal force is a force directed toward the center of the circle for an object moving in a circular motion.The word “centripetal” means to move toward the __________.Examples—amusement park rides, bucket/water
39 Section 3—Newton’s Third Law of Motion Chapter 3: FORCESSection 3—Newton’s Third Law of Motion
40 NEWTON’S THIRD LAW OF MOTION When one object exerts a force on a second object, the second one exerts a force on the first that is equal in size and opposite in direction.ORAnother way to say this is “to every action force there is an equal and opposite reaction force.”
41 EXAMPLESTrampoline—you exert a force downward and the trampoline exerts an equal force upward; Rocket propulsion***Even though the forces are equal, they are not balanced, because they act on different objects
42 MOMENTUM Momentum is the property of a moving object. The momentum of an object is the product of its mass and velocity.Momentum is represented by the symbol (p) and can be calculated as follows:Momentum (p) = mass (m) x velocity (v)The SI unit for momentum is kg x m/s
43 THE LAW OF CONSERVATION OF MOMENTUM The law of conservation of momentum states that the total momentum stays the same unless an outside force acts on the objects. Momentum, however, can be transferred from one object to the other.
