Vectors. A vector is a quantity that involves both magnitude and direction. 55 km/h [N35E] A downward force of 3 Newtons A scalar is a quantity that does not involve direction. 55 km/h 18 cm long

16
Vector Notation Vectors are often identified with arrows in graphics and labeled as follows: We label a vector with a variable. This variable is identified as a vector either by an arrow above itself : Or By the variable being BOLD: A

Vectors... The components (in a particular coordinate system) of r, the position vector, are its (x,y,z) coordinates in that coordinate system The components (in a particular coordinate system) of r, the position vector, are its (x,y,z) coordinates in that coordinate system r = (r x,r y,r z ) = (x,y,z) r = (r x,r y,r z ) = (x,y,z) Consider this in 2-D (since it’s easier to draw): Consider this in 2-D (since it’s easier to draw): r x = x = r cos r x = x = r cos r y = y = r sin r y = y = r sin y x (x,y) r where r = |r | r arctan( y / x )

Resultant of Two Forces force: action of one body on another; characterized by its point of application, magnitude, line of action, and sense. Experimental evidence shows that the combined effect of two forces may be represented by a single resultant force. The resultant is equivalent to the diagonal of a parallelogram which contains the two forces in adjacent legs. Force is a vector quantity.

24
Vectors Vector: parameters possessing magnitude and direction which add according to the parallelogram law. Examples: displacements, velocities, accelerations. Vector classifications: -Fixed or bound vectors have well defined points of application that cannot be changed without affecting an analysis. -Free vectors may be freely moved in space without changing their effect on an analysis. -Sliding vectors may be applied anywhere along their line of action without affecting an analysis. Equal vectors have the same magnitude and direction. Negative vector of a given vector has the same magnitude and the opposite direction. Scalar: parameters possessing magnitude but not direction. Examples: mass, volume, temperature P Q P+Q P -P

25
Addition of Vectors Trapezoid rule for vector addition Law of cosines, Law of sines, Vector addition is commutative, Vector subtraction P Q P+Q P Q Triangle rule for vector addition P P+Q Q P Q -Q P-Q

26
Addition of Vectors Addition of three or more vectors through repeated application of the triangle rule The polygon rule for the addition of three or more vectors. Vector addition is associative, Multiplication of a vector by a scalar increases its length by that factor (if scalar is negative, the direction will also change.) P Q S Q+S P+Q+S P Q S P 2P -1.5P

27
Resultant of Several Concurrent Forces Concurrent forces: set of forces which all pass through the same point. A set of concurrent forces applied to a particle may be replaced by a single resultant force which is the vector sum of the applied forces. Vector force components: two or more force vectors which, together, have the same effect as a single force vector.

28

Graphically evaluate the resultant which is equivalent in direction and proportional in magnitude to the diagonal. Trigonometric solution - use the triangle rule for vector addition in conjunction with the law of cosines and law of sines to find the resultant.

Assume the receiver and QB are the same height Assume the receiver and QB are the same height (a) D 2 = 2D 1 (b) D 2 = 4D 1 (c) D 2 = 8D 1

60
Solution l The distance a ball will go is simply x = (horizontal speed) x (time in air) = v 0x t l To figure out “time in air”, consider the equation for the height of the ball: l When the ball is caught, y = y 0 (time of throw) (time of catch) two solutions

61

67
Shooting the Monkey... l If there were no gravity, simply aim at the monkey r = r 0 r =v 0 t

68
Shooting the Monkey... rvg r = v 0 t - 1 / 2 g t 2 l With gravity, still aim at the monkey! rg r = r / 2 g t 2 Dart hits the monkey!

69
Recap: Shooting the monkey... x = x 0 x = x 0 yg y = - 1 / 2 g t 2 l This may be easier to think about. It’s exactly the same idea!! They both have the same V y (t) in this case x = v 0 t x = v 0 t yg y = - 1 / 2 g t 2
