Isaac Newton 1642-1727 Isaac Newton 1689 Knighted by Queen Anne 1705

Other topics Why do objects accelerate? Why do objects not accelerate?
Forces in Balance (Equilibrium) Forces out of Balance Friction Air resistance Terminal Velocity

Law of inertia (1st Law) Every object continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a straight line, unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed upon it. acceleration = 0.0 unless the objected is acted on by an unbalanced force

Law of inertia (1st Law) Inertia (The intrinsic tendency of an object to resist changes in motion) Mass is a measure of an object’s inertia Mass is also a measure of the amount of an object’s matter content. (i.e. protons, neutrons, and electrons) Weight is the force upon an object due to gravity

Newton’s 2nd Law Net Force = Mass x Acceleration F = M A

Newton’s Law of Action Reaction (3rd Law)

An object experiences a net force and exhibits an acceleration in response. Which of the following statements is always true? (a) The object moves in the direction of the force. (b) The acceleration is in the same direction as the velocity. (c) The acceleration is in the same direction as the force. (d) The velocity of the object increases.

QUICK QUIZ 5.3 (end of section 5.5)
On Earth, where gravity is present, an experiment is performed on a puck on an air hockey table, with negligible friction. A constant horizontal force is applied to the puck and its acceleration is measured. The experiment is performed on the same puck in the far reaches of outer space where both friction and gravity are negligible. The same constant force is applied to the puck and its acceleration is measured. The puck’s acceleration in outer space will be a) greater than its acceleration on Earth, b) less than its acceleration on Earth, c) exactly the same as its acceleration on Earth, d) infinite since neither friction nor gravity are holding it back?

Air ResistanceForce Depends on: velocity Air density
Shape and aerodynamics of object

Terminal Velocity When air resistance force balances an objects weight
Air Drag Acceleration= 0.0 ===> Terminal velocity w

Terminal Velocity Acceleration = 0.0 ===>Terminal velocity Air Drag

Which encounters the greater force of air resistance—
A falling elephant, or 2. A falling feather? Ch 4-6

1. A falling elephant, or 2. A falling feather?
Which encounters the greater force of air resistance— 1. A falling elephant, or 2. A falling feather? Ch 4-6 Answer: 1 There is a greater force of air resistance on the falling elephant, which “plows through” more air than the feather in getting to the ground. The elephant encounters several newtons of air resistance, which compared to its huge weight has practically no effect on its rate of fall. Only a small fraction of a newton acts on the feather, but the effect is significant because the feather weighs only a fraction of a newton. Remember to distinguish between a force itself and the effect it produces!

Two smooth balls of exactly the same size, one made of wood and the other of iron, are dropped from a high building to the ground below. The ball to encounter the greater force of air resistance on the way down is Ch 4-7 1. the wooden ball. 2. the iron ball. 3. Neither. The force is the same.

Two smooth balls of exactly the same size, one made of wood and the other of iron, are dropped from a high building to the ground below. The ball to encounter the greater force of air resistance on the way down is Ch 4-7 Answer: 2 Air resistance depends on both the size and speed of a falling object. Both balls have the same size, but the heavier iron ball falls faster through the air and encounters greater air resistance in its fall. Be careful to distinguish between the amount of air drag and the effect of that air drag. If the greater air drag on the faster ball is small compared to the weight of the ball, it won’t be very effective in reducing acceleration. For example, 2 newtons of air drag on a 20-newton ball has less effect on fall than 1 newton of air drag on a 2-newton ball. 1. the wooden ball. 2. the iron ball. 3. Neither. The force is the same.

1. increases. 2. decreases. 3. remains the same.
As she falls faster and faster through the air, her acceleration 1. increases. 2. decreases. 3. remains the same. Ch 4-8 Answer: 2 Acceleration decreases because the net force on her decreases. Net force is equal to her weight minus her air resistance, and since air resistance increases with increasing speed, net force and hence acceleration decreases. By Newton’s 2nd law: , where mg is her weight and R is the air resistance she encounters. As R increases, a decreases. Note that if she falls fast enough so that R = mg, a = 0, then with no acceleration she falls at constant velocity.
