Chapter 1 Additional slides from Thorton & Rex, Modern Physics, 3 rd ed slides, prepared by Anthony Pitucco, Ph.D., Pima Community College Figures from Halliday, Resnick, Walker, “Fundamentals of Physics” 9 th edition as noted.
Conservation Laws Conservation of energy: – The total sum of energy (in all its forms) is conserved in all interactions. Conservation of linear momentum: – In the absence of external forces, linear momentum is conserved in all interactions. Conservation of angular momentum: – In the absence of external torque, angular momentum is conserved in all interactions. Conservation of charge: – Electric charge is conserved in all interactions.
Three laws describing the relationship between mass and acceleration. Newton’s first law (law of inertia): An object in motion with a constant velocity will continue in motion unless acted upon by some net external force. Newton’s second law: Introduces force (F) as responsible for the the change in linear momentum (p): Newton’s third law (law of action and reaction): The force exerted by body 1 on body 2 is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the force that body 2 exerts on body 1. Mechanics
Electromagnetism Gauss’s law (Φ E ): (electric field) Gauss’s law (Φ B ): (magnetic field) Faraday’s law: Ampère’s law:
Thermodynamics First law: The change in the internal energy ΔU of a system is equal to the heat Q added to a system plus the work W done by the system ΔU = Q + W Second law: It is not possible to convert heat completely into work without some other change taking place. The “zeroth” law: Two systems in thermal equilibrium with a third system are in thermal equilibrium with each other. Third law: It is not possible to achieve an absolute zero temperature
STUPID THINGS PEOPLE SAY Lord Kelvin 1900 – “There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement.” Albert Michelson 1894 – “The more important fundamental laws and facts of physical science have all been discovered, and these are so firmly established that the possibility of their ever being supplanted in consequence of new discoverys is exceedingly remote…”
Some Mysteries of 1895-1915 What are the positive and negative charges in a material and how are they arranged? (atom) How does one explain the distribution of velocities in a gas? (Maxwell-Boltzmann) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Daltons_symbols.gif JDalton’s 1808 Chemical Philosophy sketches
Some Mysteries of 1895-1915 Why do electrons moving through a gas loose energy in increments? (Franck-Hertz) Why do ‘alpha rays’ bounce back 180 o ? (Geiger- Marsden-Rutherford) What medium do light waves travel in? (Michelson- Morley) Wikipedia on Franck-Hertz
Some Mysteries of ~1895 Why does light kick electrons out of a surface only above a certain frequency which is different for each material? (photoelectric effect) What is this radioactivity stuff?
Some Mysteries of ~1895 How does one explain the perihelion precession of planet Mercury? Why does the electron have a magnetic moment? (Stern-Gerlach) Is light a particle or a wave? Wikipedia on precession of Mercury

Kinetic Energy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUyoDkp30-U On Aug 10, 1972, a large meteor skipped across the atmosphere above western US and western Canada, much like a stone skipped across water. The meteorite’s mass was about 4 * 10 6 kg; it’s speed was about 15 km/s. Had it entered the atmosphere vertically; it would have hit the Earth with about the same speed. (a) Calculate the meteorite’s kinetic energy. (b) Express this in terms is tons of TNT. 1 ton TNT = 4.2*10 15 J. http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2008/08/earth-scars/stone-text http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2008/08/earth-scars/alvarez-photography Photograph by James M Baker

Conservation of Angular Momentum HRW 11-45 A man stands on a platform which is rotating at 1.2 rev/s. His arms are outstretched and he holds a brick in each hand. The total rotational inertia is 6 kg m 2. He brings his arms in so that the rotational inertia decreases to 2 kg m 2. What is his final rotational speed?
Conservation of Angular Momentum HRW 11-46 The rotational inertia of a collapsing spinning star drops to 1/3 its initial value. What is the ratio of the new rotational kinetic energy to the initial rotational kinetic energy?
