1 Forces and Newton’s Laws of Motion Chapter 4Forces and Newton’s Laws of Motion
2 4.1 The Concepts of Force and Mass A force is a push or a pull.Contact forces arise from physicalcontact .Action-at-a-distance forces do notrequire contact and include gravity and electrical forces.
3 4.1 The Concepts of Force and Mass Arrows are used to represent forces. The length of the arrowis proportional to the magnitude of the force.15 N5 N
4 4.1 The Concepts of Force and Mass Mass is a measure of the amountof “stuff” contained in an object.
5 4.2 Newton’s First Law of Motion An object continues in a state of restor in a state of motion at a constantspeed along a straight line, unlesscompelled to change that state by anet force.The net force is the vector sum of allof the forces acting on an object.
6 4.2 Newton’s First Law of Motion The net force on an object is the vector sum of all forces acting on that object.The SI unit of force is the Newton (N).Individual ForcesNet Force4 N10 N6 N

8 4.2 Newton’s First Law of Motion Inertia is the natural tendency of anobject to remain at rest in motion ata constant speed along a straight line.The mass of an object is a quantitativemeasure of inertia.SI Unit of Mass: kilogram (kg)
9 4.2 Newton’s First Law of Motion An inertial reference frame is one inwhich Newton’s law of inertia is valid.All accelerating reference frames arenoninertial.
10 4.3 Newton’s Second Law of Motion Mathematically, the net force iswritten aswhere the Greek letter sigma denotes the vector sum.
11 4.3 Newton’s Second Law of Motion When a net external force acts on an objectof mass m, the acceleration that results isdirectly proportional to the net force and hasa magnitude that is inversely proportional tothe mass. The direction of the acceleration isthe same as the direction of the net force.
12 4.3 Newton’s Second Law of Motion SI Unit for ForceThis combination of units is called a newton (N).
24 4.6 Types of Forces: An Overview In nature there are two general types of forces,fundamental and nonfundamental.Fundamental Forces1. Gravitational force2. Strong Nuclear force3. Electroweak force
25 4.6 Types of Forces: An Overview Examples of nonfundamental forces:frictiontension in a ropenormal or support forces
26 4.7 The Gravitational Force Newton’s Law of Universal GravitationEvery particle in the universe exerts an attractive force on everyother particle.A particle is a piece of matter, small enough in size to beregarded as a mathematical point.The force that each exerts on the other is directed along the linejoining the particles.
27 4.7 The Gravitational Force For two particles that have masses m1 and m2 and areseparated by a distance r, the force has a magnitudegiven by
30 4.7 The Gravitational Force Definition of WeightThe weight of an object on or above the earth is the gravitational force that the earth exerts on the object.The weight always acts downwards, toward the centerof the earth.On or above another astronomical body, the weight is thegravitational force exerted on the object by that body.SI Unit of Weight: newton (N)
31 4.7 The Gravitational Force Relation Between Mass and Weight
32 4.7 The Gravitational Force On the earth’s surface:
33 Definition of the Normal Force The normal force is one component of the force that a surfaceexerts on an object with which it is in contact – namely, thecomponent that is perpendicularto the surface.
37 4.9 Static and Kinetic Frictional Forces When an object is in contact with a surface there is a forceacting on that object. The component of this force that isparallel to the surface is called thefrictional force.
38 4.9 Static and Kinetic Frictional Forces When the two surfaces arenot sliding across one anotherthe friction is calledstatic friction.
39 4.9 Static and Kinetic Frictional Forces The magnitude of the static frictional force can have any valuefrom zero up to a maximum value.is called the coefficient of static friction.
40 4.9 Static and Kinetic Frictional Forces Note that the magnitude of the frictional force doesnot depend on the contact area of the surfaces.
41 4.9 Static and Kinetic Frictional Forces Static friction opposes the impending relative motion betweentwo objects.Kinetic friction opposes the relative sliding motion motions thatactually does occur.is called the coefficient of kinetic friction.
43 4.9 Static and Kinetic Frictional Forces The sled comes to a halt because the kinetic frictional forceopposes its motion and causes the sled to slow down.
44 4.9 Static and Kinetic Frictional Forces Suppose the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.05 and the totalmass is 40kg. What is the kinetic frictional force?
45 Cables and ropes transmit forces through tension. 4.10 The Tension ForceCables and ropes transmitforces through tension.
46 A massless rope will transmit tension undiminished from one 4.10 The Tension ForceA massless rope will transmittension undiminished from oneend to the other.If the rope passes around amassless, frictionless pulley, thetension will be transmitted tothe other end of the ropeundiminished.
47 4.11 Equilibrium Application of Newton’s Laws of Motion Definition of EquilibriumAn object is in equilibrium when it has zero acceleration.
48 4.11 Equilibrium Application of Newton’s Laws of Motion Reasoning StrategySelect an object(s) to which the equations of equilibrium areto be applied.Draw a free-body diagram for each object chosen above.Include only forces acting on the object, not forces the objectexerts on its environment.Choose a set of x, y axes for each object and resolve all forcesin the free-body diagram into components that point along theseaxes.Apply the equations and solve for the unknown quantities.
