2 AP Physics Take Quiz 5 Lecture Q&A
3 Force and Acceleration Acceleration causes Force: an interaction that causes acceleration Kinematics: Study of motion without consideration of force (Describe motion) Mechanics: Study of force and motion (Explain motion) Force What causes acceleration? VV
4 Newton’s First Law of Motion Law of Inertia An object with no net force acting on it remains at rest or moves with constant velocity in a straight line. No net force is needed to keep a constant velocity. A net force is needed to change a velocity. Net force = 0 Object at Equilibrium. A special case of Second Law of Motion.
5 Interpretation of Newton’s First Law If no net force acts on a body, we can always find a reference frame in which that body has no acceleration. Inertial Frame of Reference: Newton’s First Law: Law of Inertia – F net = 0 on a body, then a = 0 Inertial Frame – F net = 0 on the frame – The frame moves with constant velocity. – Inertia: Resistance to force – Inertia Mass for now
6 Newton’s Second Law of Motion The acceleration of a body is directly proportional to the net force on it and inversely proportional to its mass. F or F net : net force, total force, resultant force Force is the cause, and acceleration is the effect. Unit of Force: F = ma [F] =[m] [a]
7 Practice: An experimental rocket sled can be accelerated at a constant rate from rest to 1600 km/h in 1.8 s. What is the magnitude of the required average force if the sled has a mass of 500 kg.
8 Force Force is a vector. The acceleration component along a given axis is caused only by the sum of the force components along that same axis and not affected by force components along any other axis.
9 Example: Three forces act on a particle that moves with unchanging velocity of v = (2 m/s)i – (7 m/s)j. Two of the forces are F 1 = (2N)i + (3N)j + (-2N)k and F 2 = (-5N)i + (8N)j + (-2N)k. What is the third force?
10 Two kinds of mass Two methods to measure or use mass Inertial mass: measure mass by comparing acceleration of this object to acceleration of an object of known mass when the same force applied to both of them. Gravitational mass: measure mass by comparing gravitational force on this object to gravitational force on an object of known mass at the same location
11 But what exactly is mass? mass weight or size intrinsic characteristic how much a body resist to force a characteristic of a body that relates a force on the body to the resulting acceleration of the body
12 Free Body Diagram Force Diagram Draw simple diagram Draw all forces acting on the object being considered – Ignore all forces this object acting on other objects – Draw forces starting from center of object or at points of action – Make sure each force giver can be identified
13 Free-Body Diagram Example W: Weight of object, gravity of Earth pulling on box N: Normal force, force of incline supporting box f: friction, force of incline surface opposing motion v Do not confuse velocity with forces. T: tension, force of person pulling on box f: friction, force of incline surface opposing motion
14 Weight or gravity Weight or gravity: gravitational force the Earth pulling on object around it Always straight downward – m: mass of object – g = 9.8 m/s 2 near surface of Earth: acceleration due to gravity When it is the only force acting on an object, (acceleration due to gravity) free fall Higher elevation, smaller g Lower latitude (closer to equator), smaller g
15 Normal Force (N, but not Newton) Given by the surface in contact to support the object. N N N F app No contact No normal force No tendency to move into surface No normal force Always perpendicular to the surface in contact. (Normal = perpendicular) Points from surface to the object
16 Two kinds of frictions Friction: force opposing the motion or the tendency of motion between two rough surfaces that are in contact – Static friction: – Kinetic (or sliding) friction: – Or simply: More next chapter.
17 Tension Tension is the force the person pulling on the box through the string. (Or string pulling on box.) Tension is along the string and points away from the object of consideration. Pulley can be used to change direction of tension. Reading of spring scale gives magnitude of tension in string. T
18 What is the tension/scale reading? 200N a) 0 N b) 200 N c) 400 N scale
19 What is the tension? Wall Answer: Consider: 200N Same force diagram as before. reading = tension = Wall? b) 200 N 200N
20 Weight and Apparent Weight Apparent weight is the reading on the apparatus. Apparent weight is the normal force the scale exerting on the object Apparent weight is the tension the spring exerting on the object T Apparent weight does not have to be the same as the weight. Weight is force of gravity of Earth pulling on the object. N
21 Example: A weight-conscious penguin with a mass of 15.0 kg rests on a bathroom scale. What are a) the penguin’s weight W and b) the normal force N on the penguin? c) What is the reading on the scale, assuming it is calibrated in weight units? Let upward = + W N
22 Practice: An object is hung from a spring balance attached to the ceiling of an elevator. The balance reads 64 N when the elevator is standing still. What is the reading when the elevator is moving upward a) with a constant speed of 7.6 m/s and b) with a speed of 7.6 m/s while decelerating at a rate of 2.4 m/s 2 ? a)v = 7.6 m/s = W=mg T + W=64N T = ? Define upward as the positive direction. constant This apparent weight is different from the weight. b) a =-2.4 m/s 2, T = ?
23 Newton’s Third Law of Motion When one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object also exerts a force on the first object that is equal in magnitude but opposite in direction. Action and reaction forces always exist together. Action and reaction forces are of the same kind of force. (Both gravitational forces or both electromagnetic forces.) Action and reaction forces act on two different objects and therefore do not cancel out each other when only one object is considered.
24 Action and Reaction Forces In general, the force acting on the object under consideration is the action force, and the other is the reaction. Action Reaction Force between box and ground: – Action force: ground supporting the box, F g b – Reaction force: box pushing on the ground, F b g
25 How To Find Reaction Force 1. Identify the force giver and receiver of the force. 2. Reversing the order of force giver and receiver, you will get the reaction force. Example: Action force: a b Reaction force: b a
26 Example on Action-Reaction table box
27 Example (2) W b : weight of box, force Earth pulling on box N: normal force, force table supporting the box Are N and W a pair of action and reaction force? forces on box No 2 different objects same fundamental force
28 Example (3) N: Force of box pushing on table N N g t : normal force of ground supporting table W t : weight of table, gravitational force Earth pulling on table forces on table
29 Example (4) N t g : force of table pushing on ground (Earth), reaction force of N g t. W t : reaction force to weight of table, gravitational force table pulling on Earth WtWt W b : reaction force to weight of box, force box pulling on Earth WbWb forces on earth
30 Example (5) NtgNtg WtWt WbWb NgtNgt N WtWt N WbWb Action and reaction forces always exist in pairs and act on different objects.
31 Example: A 40 kg girl and an 8.4 kg sled are on the frictionless ice of a frozen lake, 15 m apart but connected by a rope of negligible mass. The girl exerts a horizontal 5.2 N force on the rope. What are the acceleration magnitudes of (a) the sled and (b) the girl? c) How far from the girl’s initial position do they meet? T W2W2 N2N2 m1m1 m2m2 W1W1 N1N1 T

Chute & person Chute only What if we did force diagrams for individual masses?
34 Another Approach: An 80-kg person is parachuting and experiencing a downward acceleration of 2.5 m/s 2. The mass of the parachute is 5.0 kg. a) What upward force is exerted on the open parachute by the air? b) What downward force is exerted by the person on the parachute? + Choose downward = + direction. m 1 = 80 kg, a = 2.5 m/s 2, m 2 = 5.0 kg, M = m 1 + m 2 = 85 kg W 1 = m 1 g T a) f = ? f W 2 = m 2 g T Person only Chute only ?
35 Example: Two blocks, 3.0kg and 5.0kg, are connected by a light string and pulled with a force of 16.0N along a frictionless surface. Find (a) the acceleration of the blocks, and (b) the tension between the blocks. 3.0kg5.0kg 16.0N W2W2 N2N2 TTF N1N1 W1W1 + Let right = +, m 1 = 5.0 kg, m 2 = 3.0 kg, F = 16.0 N Consider only forces in the horizontal direction. m1:m1: m2:m2: Also applies
36 Another Approach: Two blocks, 3.0kg and 5.0kg, are connected by a light string and pulled with a force of 16.0N along a frictionless surface. Find (a) the acceleration of the blocks, and (b) the tension between the blocks. 3.0kg5.0kg 16.0N N2N2 T F N W + Let right = +, m 1 = 5.0 kg, m 2 = 3.0 kg, F = 16.0 N Take the two masses as a system. Then m 1 and m 2 : m2:m2: Then we can apply 2 nd on either m 1 or m 2 to find T. W2W2
37 Example: Two blocks, one of mass 5.0 kg and the other of mass 3.0 kg, are tied together with a massless rope as to the right. This rope is strung over a massless, resistance-free pulley. The blocks are released from rest. Find a) the tension in the rope, and b) the acceleration of the blocks W1W1 W2W2 T T + Let downward = + for m 1 = 5 kg, and upward = + for m 2 = 3 kg. Then two masses will have the same acceleration, a = ?. And the tensions will be the same, T = ? m1:m1: m2:m2:
38 Another Approach: Two blocks, one of mass 5.0 kg and the other of mass 3.0 kg, are tied together with a massless rope as to the right. This rope is strung over a massless, resistance-free pulley. The blocks are released from rest. Find a) the tension in the rope, and b) the acceleration of the blocks. 3 5 W1W1 W2W2 + Take the two masses as a single system. Let clockwise as the positive direction of the motions. And this net force is acceleration a total mass of So the acceleration of the system is Then we apply Newton’s second law on one of the mass to find the tension. + T Let downward = + for 5kg. Then Then the net force accelerating the system is:
39 Example: In Fig. 5-66, a force F of magnitude 12 N is applied to a FedEx box of mass m 2 = 1.0 kg. The force is directed up a plane tilted by = 37 o. The box is connected by a cord to a UPS box of mass m 1 = 3.0 kg on the floor. The floor, plane, and pulley are frictionless, and the masses of the pulley and cord are negligible. What is the tension in the cord? N1N1 W1W1 T x y + T W2W2 FN2N2 Set up the coordinates as in the diagram. Also decompose W 2 into the x and y directions as W 2x and W 2y.
