2 Combining Forces - The Nature of Force The combination of all forces acting on an object is called the net force.
3 Unbalanced Forces - The Nature of Force Unbalanced forces acting on an object result in a net force and cause a change in the object’s motion.
4 Balanced Forces - The Nature of Force Balanced forces acting on an object do not change the object’s motion.
5 Asking Questions - The Nature of Force Before you read, preview the red headings. In a graphic organizer like the one below, ask a what or how question for each heading. As you read, write answers to your questions.QuestionAnswerWhat is a force?A force is a push or pull.What happens when forces combine?Forces combine to produce a net force.
6 Gravity - Friction and Gravity Two factors affect the gravitational attraction between objects: mass and distance.
7 Gravity - Friction and Gravity The force of gravity on a person or object at the surface of a planet is known as weight.
9 Free Fall - Friction and Gravity Use the graph to answer the following questions.
10 Free Fall - Friction and Gravity Interpreting Graphs: What variable is on the horizontal axis? The vertical axis?Time is on the horizontal axis, and speed is on the vertical axis.
11 Free Fall - Friction and Gravity Calculating: Calculate the slope of the graph. What does the slope tell you about the object’s motion?The slope is 9.8. The speed increases by 9.8 m/s each second.
12 Air Resistance - Friction and Gravity Falling objects with a greater surface area experience more air resistance.
13 Comparing and Contrasting - Friction and GravityComparing and ContrastingAs you read, compare and contrast friction and gravity by completing a table like the one below.FrictionGravityPulls objects toward one anotherEffect on motionOpposes motionTypes of surfaces involved, how hard the surfaces push togetherDepends onMass and distanceMeasured inNewtonsNewtons
14 Calculating Force F = ma F = 55 kg x 2 m/s2 = 110 N - Newton’s First and Second LawsCalculating ForceA speedboat pulls a 55-kg water-skier. The force causes the skier to accelerate at 2.0 m/s2. Calculate the net force that causes this acceleration.Read and UnderstandWhat information have you been given?Mass of the water-skier (m) = 55 kgAcceleration of the water-skier (a) = 2.0 m/s2F = maF = 55 kg x 2 m/s2 = 110 N
15 Calculating Force Practice Problem - Newton’s First and Second Laws What is the net force on a 1,000-kg object accelerating at 3 m/s2?3,000 N (1,000 kg X 3 m/s2)
16 Newton’s First LawIf no forces are exerted on an object, the object continues in its original state of motionNewton’s Second LawThe acceleration of an object is proportional to the force acting on it and inversely proportional to the mass of the objectF = ma What if a=0 ?Newton’s Third LawIf two objects interact they exert equal forces on each other in opposite directions

18 Calculating Momentum - Newton’s Third Law Which has more momentum: a 3.0-kg sledgehammer swung at 1.5 m/s or a 4.0-kg sledgehammer swung at 0.9 m/s?Read and UnderstandWhat information have you been given?Mass of smaller sledgehammer = 3.0 kgVelocity of smaller sledgehammer = 1.5 m/sMass of larger sledgehammer = 4.0 kgVelocity of larger sledgehammer = 0.9 m/s
19 Momentum = Mass X Velocity Perform the calculation. - Newton’s Third LawCalculating MomentumMomentum = Mass X VelocityPerform the calculation.Smaller sledgehammer = 3.0 kg X 1.5 m/s = 4.5 kg•m/sLarger sledgehammer = 4.0 kg X 0.9 m/s = 3.6 kg•m/s
20 Calculating Momentum Practice Problem - Newton’s Third Law A golf ball travels at 16 m/s, while a baseball moves at 7 m/s. The mass of the golf ball is kg and the mass of the baseball is 0.14 kg. Which has the greater momentum?Golf ball: kg X 16 m/s = 0.72 kg•m/sBaseball: 0.14 kg X 7 m/s = 0.98 kg•m/sThe baseball has greater momentum.
21 Conservation of Momentum -- Newton’s Third LawConservation of MomentumIn the absence of friction, momentum is conserved when two train cars collide.
22 What Is a Satellite? - Rockets and Satellites A projectile follows a curved path because the horizontal and vertical motions combine.
23 What Is a Satellite? - Rockets and Satellites The faster a projectile is thrown, the father it travels before it hits the ground. A projectile with enough velocity moves in a circular orbit.
24 What Is a Satellite? - Rockets and Satellites Depending on their uses, artificial satellites orbit at different heights.
