1 Chapter 2 Forces and Vectors Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
2 Vector & Scalar Quantities Vector QuantitiesVectors are physical quantities that have both magnitude and direction.Magnitude = amount and units.Direction can be stated as up/down, left/right, N/E/S/W or 35o S of E.Eg. of vectors: displacement, velocity, acceleration, force, and momentum.Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
3 The length of the line represents magnitude of the vector quantity. Vectors are sometimes represented by a line and arrow drawn on the line.The length of the line represents magnitude of the vector quantity.Arrow on the line represents direction.When asked to specify a vector quantity, state both its magnitude (size and units) as well as its direction.More about Vectors in Chapter 4!!Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
4 Scalar quantities are physical quantities that have only magnitude. Scalars do not require direction in space when specifying them.Eg: distance, speed, mass, time, temperature and energy.Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
5 §2.1: ForcesThe physical universe is made of objects (particles) that interact with each other. The interaction may define or change the “behavior” (temperature, motion) of the interacting objects.Effects of these interactions are explained in different ways (models) such as force, momentum exchange, energy, etc.We will first use force as a means of understanding some of these interactions.Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
6 Force: = Push or pull one object exerts on another. Forces come in pairs, isolated forces do not exist in physical interactions.Eg. When you push the door, the door pushes back on you.Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
7 The SI unit of force is the Newton (N). 1N = 1 kg-m/s2. In the US, force is measured in pounds.1.00 lb = N and 1.00 N = lb.Robert Hooke (1635 – 1703) found that when a spring is pulled by a force F, it extends proportionally by an amount x.Hooke’s law: F = -kxk = spring constant, indicates how stiff the spring is.Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
8 Measuring Forces F = -kx Weight = force of gravity pulling on objects. Extension of the spring is proportional to the weight (force). F x.Weight (force) can be measured using calibrated spring scale.Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
9 Examples of Forces:Contact forces – eg. Applied force of push/pull, force of tension in strings, friction, normal force, spring force.Long-range, action-at-a-distance (non-contact) forces. Eg. Gravitational (between earth-moon), Electric, magnetic.Weak nuclear force.Strong nuclear force.Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
10 All forces fall under 4 fundamental categories: Gravitational (always attractive).Electromagnetic (all contact forces).Strong Nuclear (holds protons and neutrons together.Weak Nuclear (occurs in some forms of radioactivity and thermonuclear reactions in the sun).Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
11 Newton’s Laws of Motion Sir Isaac Newton ( )Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
12 Other ways of stating it: Newton’s First Law (Also called Law of Inertia)An object at rest will remain at rest and an object in motion will continue to move with constant speed and direction unless acted upon by a net force.Other ways of stating it:If no net force acts on an object at rest, it will remain at rest but if the object is already moving, it will continue to move without change in its speed and its direction.If the sum of all forces acting on an object is zero, then its speed and direction will not change.Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
13 “net force” = vector sum of all forces. A net force is needed to make an object at rest start moving.A net force is needed to make a moving object change direction of motion.A net force is needed to stop a moving object.A force is not needed to keep an object in motion if there is no force opposing its motion.Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
14 §2.4: Net Force and Vector Addition Net force = vector sum of all the forces acting on an object.Vectors are added in a special way.Co-linear vectors – 2 or more vectors parallel or antiparallel.Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
15 Inertia Inertia = resistance to change in motion. Mass = amount of inertia of an object.A larger mass has more resistance to change in its motion than a smaller mass.An object at rest wants to stay at rest, an object in motion along a straight line wants to keep moving that way unless acted on by a net force. [inertia = resistance to change in motion] Newton’s Law one Law of inertia.Seatbelts are worn because of inertia.Newton’s first law – closely related to the reason why seatbelts are worn by motorists.Lets do all demos here.

16 A force of 15 N is applied to the end of a spring, and it stretches 9 cm. How much further will it stretch if an additional 5.0 N of force is applied?3.0 cm1.67 cm10.67 cm15 cm5.0 cm
17 If the net force acting on a moving object suddenly becomes zero, the object will continue moving but with non zero acceleration.stop abruptly.continue moving at constant velocity.slow down gradually.
18 Velocity (v)Velocity (v) in simple terms is speed and direction. (Better definition later).If a nonzero net force (Fnet) is applied to an object, its velocity will change.Thus, if the net force acting on an object is zero, there will be no change in its speed, no change in its direction.Net force (resultant force) = vector sum of all the forces acting on an object.Lets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
19 Acceleration (a)Change in velocity gives rise to acceleration (a). If an object moves with changing velocity, we say the object moves with an acceleration. Acceleration is rate of change of velocity. ie a = v/t (“” means “change”).Change in velocity could meanchange in speed only - while direction stays constant.change in direction only while speed stays constant.change in speed and direction of motion simultaneously. Fnet = maLets do all demos here. Table cloth, Fred and cart, Equal and Opposite forces
20 The greater the net force, the greater the acceleration, ie, a Fnet Newton’s Second Law:The greater the net force, the greater the acceleration, ie, a FnetThe greater the mass of the object, the less acceleration, ie, a 1/m.The direction of the acceleration is the same as the direction of the net force.Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
21 From Newton’s second law of motion, we have the relation Fnet = ma Thus, accelerationa Fnet/m or a = Fnet/m.From Newton’s second law of motion, we have the relationFnet = maBlow up hydrogen balloon here?
22 If a net force of 1 N acts on a 200 g-book, what is the acceleration of the book? A box is pushed on a a floor when a horizontal force of 250 N is applied against a frictional force of 180 N. If the box moves with an acceleration of 1.20 m/s2, what is the mass of the box?
23 Static and Dynamic Equilibrium If the net force on an object is zero, it could either:Be at rest – static equilibrium.Be moving with zero acceleration ie no change in velocity – constant velocity – dynamic (or translational) equilibrium.If the net force acting on an object is not zero, the object will move with changing velocity (acceleration).Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
24 Newton’s Third Law of Motion In an interaction between two objects, the forces that each exerts on the other are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction.“To every action, there is an equal an opposite reaction”Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
25 Action/Reaction Scenarios: Note that the two equal and opposite forces are not acting on the same object!!Action/Reaction Scenarios:A person throws a package out of a boat at rest. Boat starts to move in opposite direction.Ice skater pushes against railing and moves in opposite direction.Rocket exerts strong force expelling gases. Gases exerts equal force in opposite direction, propelling the rocket forward.Blow up hydrogen balloon here?

28 Force Laws Gravitational Forces: Newton’s law of universal gravitation states that any two objects of masses m1 and m2 separated by a distance r will exert a gravitational force on each other. This gravitational force is attractive force and is directly proportional to the product of the masses (F m1m2) and inversely proportional to r2 (F 1/r2).Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
29 F m1m2 and F 1/r2 combine to give F = Gm1m2/r2 G = Universal Gravitational constant = x N.m2/kg2Objects near the surface of the earth, gravitational force is called weight, W.An object of mass m near the surface of the earth has weight W = mgg = acceleration due to gravity = 9.8 m/s2.Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
30 rm1m2Gravitational force between m1 and m2 isF = Gm1m2/r2
31 m RE ME Gravitational force between m and ME is F = GmME/RE2 This force on m is the weight of the mass m.Weight of m = mgmg = GmME/RE2Thus g = GME/RE2 = 9.8 m/s2Weight of an object of mass m is W = mg
32 W = mg = GMEm/RE2 or g = GME/RE2 Acceleration due to gravity, g, is directed downwards, towards the center of the earth.Far away from the surface of the earth, (r = RE + h), the magnitude of g (and therefore the weight of an object at that location), decreases:g´ = GME/r2 = GME/(RE + h)2Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
33 m m RE RE h ME ME Near the earth’s surface: g = GME/RE2 Far from surface: g´ = GME/r2 = GME/(RE + h)2
34 Is the force of gravity due to the pull of the earth. Weight (W)Is the force of gravity due to the pull of the earth.g = Acceleration due to gravity = 9.8 m/s2.Hence for an object of mass m, the weight is W = mgDirection of W is always straight downward - ie. Toward the center of the earth.Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
35 A man travels to a planet that has the same mass as the earth, but twice the radius of the earth. How will his weight on earth (WE) compared to his weight on this planet (WP)?WE = WPWE < WPWE > WPIt could be any of the above, depending on his mass.W = mgg = GME/RE2

37 2. Spring ForceSpring or elastic string stretched or compressed by distance x.The force that restores the spring (string) to its original length is given by the expression F = -kx [Hooke’s Law].Negative sign is because direction of F is always opposite to the direction of x.xxBlow up hydrogen balloon here?
38 Consider a book of mass m at rest on a table. 3. Normal Force (N)Consider a book of mass m at rest on a table.By Newton’s law, since the book is atrest, the net force on it must be zero.Hence the table must be exerting anupward force on the book to cancel outthe force of gravity. In this case, N = mg.[It is not always the case that N = mg!!]mgNBlow up hydrogen balloon here?Normal force is the force on an object when it is in contact with a surface.It is always directed perpendicularly away from the surface, ie “normally.”

40 Static friction and Kinetic friction. Friction is a contact force between an object and a surface, and directed parallel to the surface. There are two types of friction:Static friction and Kinetic friction.Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
41 (a) Static Friction: (fs) Is the frictional force that exists when there is no sliding or skidding between an object and a surface.Is the force that keeps an object at rest against the tendency for it to slide on a surface.Increases to a maximum value fs(max) when the object starts to slide against the surface. 0 fs ffmaxMaximum static friction ff(max) = sN.s = coefficient of static friction.Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
42 (b) Kinetic (sliding) Friction: Is the frictional force that exists when an object slides against a surface.Is the force that opposes the sliding movement of an object on a surface.fk = kN,where k is coefficient of kinetic friction.Usually, k s so static friction > kinetic friction.Blow up hydrogen balloon here?
