1 Motion occurs when an object changes position. What is Motion?Motion is the study of how something moves. It is all around us even though we sometimes cannot see it!Motion occurs when an object changes position.
2 Motion Motion is relative A book at rest relative to the table it lies on is moving at about 30 km/s relative to the sun.Motion is always described relative to something else.
3 Motion DISTANCE VERSUS DISPLACEMENT Distance and displacement are not the same things.Displacement is the distance and direction of an object’s final position from its initial position.Distance does not involve direction.
4 Motion DISTANCE VERSUS DISPLACEMENT Displacement is a vector value. A vector is a quantity that is specified by both a size and a direction.
5 Average speed = distance Speed is the measure of how fast an object is movingSpeed is usually expressed in meters/second or mph (miles per hour)Average speed can be calculated using this formula:Average speed = distancetime
6 SpeedAverage Speed is different from instantaneous speed (speed at any second).
7 How is speed different from velocity? Velocity: Velocity is speed WITH DIRECTION!!!!!The velocity of an object can change, even though the speed of the object remains constant.
8 HOW DO YOU MEASURE CHANGES IN SPEED OR VELOCITY?ACCELERATION – Change in the speed or direction of an object over time.*A decrease in velocity is negative acceleration*An increase in velocity is positive acceleration
9 HOW DO YOU MEASURE CHANGES IN SPEED OR VELOCITY?ACCELERATION = change in velocitytime intervalOR more precisely,ending velocity-initial velocity
10 ForceForce is any push or pull that is exerted on an object, and is a vector value.
11 Force Causes Acceleration Force causes acceleration – think of a hockey puck being hit again after it is already in motion.To increase the acceleration of an object, you must increase the net force acting on it!
12 Force Causes Acceleration Net force is directly proportional to acceleration.F ~ a.
13 Force Causes Acceleration Forces can be balanced or unbalanced.If forces are balanced, there is no net acceleration.Unbalanced forces result in an acceleration.
14 Applying Force – Pressure Pressure is the amount of force per unit area.P = F / AIt is measured in pascals (Pa). 1 Pa = 1 N/m2
15 Mass Resists Acceleration Acceleration also depends upon mass. They are inversely proportional.a ~ 1/m.
16 Friction Friction always acts in a direction to oppose motion. The force of friction between the surfaces depends on the kinds of material in contact and how much the surfaces are pressed together.
17 Friction There are three types of friction: Static friction – The frictional force that prevents two surfaces in contact from sliding past each other
18 Friction2) Sliding Friction – The force that acts in the opposite direction to the motion of a surface sliding on another surface.
19 Friction3) Rolling Friction – Frictional force resisting motion in the direction of a force. Rolling friction is usually less than sliding friction.
20 FrictionAir Resistance is a form of friction between objects and air molecules.The amount of air resistance on an object depends on the size, shape, and speed of the object.
21 Falling and Air Resistance If the air resistance of a falling object reaches a point to where it equals the weight of the object, the net force will be zero and will no longer accelerate.This is called terminal velocity.THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THERE IS NO MOVEMENT!
22 Falling and Air Resistance A skydiver reaches a terminal velocity of 150 – 200 km/h on average.At low speeds, air resistance is often negligible, but at high speeds, it can make a big difference.
23 Free FallIf there is no air resistance and gravity is the only thing affecting a falling object, it is in free fall.All falling objects accelerate due to gravity.
24 Free FallThe value for the acceleration due to gravity is g = 9.8 m/s2 (10 m/s2)For objects thrown upward, the speed decreases upward the same rate as the speed increases moving downward.
25 Free FallTo determine the distance an object falls during free fall used = ½ gt2
26 Air Resistance and Falling Objects With negligible air resistance, all falling objects can be considered to be falling freely.
27 Air Resistance and Falling Objects The effects of air resistance are less noticeable with more compact objects.
28 Projectiles near the Earth always follow a curved path. Projectile MotionA projectile is an object that has been shot or thrown through the air.Projectiles near the Earth always follow a curved path.
29 Projectile MotionThey have both horizontal and vertical velocity, which is what results in the curve.
30 Upwardly LaunchedProjectilesWithout gravity, a projectile fired upwards would follow a straight-line path.Monkey and zookeeperLink
31 Projectile MotionIf air resistance is negligible, a projectile will rise to its maximum height in the same time it takes to fall from that height to the ground because of gravity.
32 Projectile MotionA ball thrown and a ball dropped from the same distance will both hit the ground at the same time – Why?Link
34 Projectile MotionWith significant air resistance, the range of a projectile is diminished and the path is not a true parabola.
35 Universal Gravitation Newton’s Law ofUniversal GravitationGravity is a property of matter. If an object has mass and takes up space, it has a gravitational attraction to other objects.
36 Universal Gravitation Newton’s Law ofUniversal GravitationEvery object attracts every other object with a force that for any two objects is directly proportional to the mass of each object.
37 Universal Gravitation Newton’s Law ofUniversal GravitationThe greater the masses, the greater the force of attraction between them.
38 Universal Gravitation Newton’s Law ofUniversal GravitationThe farther away the objects are from each other, the less the force of attraction between them.
39 Universal Gravitation Newton’s Law ofUniversal GravitationF = G m1m2d2G = universal gravitational constantG = 6.67 x Nm2/kg2
40 Gravitation decreases according to the inverse-square law. The force of gravity weakens as the distance squared.Ex: If you were three times farther from the center of the Earth as you are now, your weight would be 1/9 of what it is now.
41 Einstein’s Theory of Relativity Einstein theorized that the mass of an object distorts space time.This was his explanation for gravitational influence.
42 Newton's LawsNewton’s First Law of Motion (Law of Inertia) – every object continues at rest, or in motion in a straight line at constant speed, unless acted upon by an outside force.
43 What is momentum?Momentum = an object’s mass x its velocity (speed with direction).SO,Momentum = mass x velocity ORp=mvA train has more momentum than a tennis ball? Why
44 Law of conservation of Momentum We all have laws!!Even momentum!Law of conservation of MomentumThe total amount of momentum in a system is conservedWhat does that mean????????????
45 Newton's 2nd LawNewton’s 2nd Law of Motion states that force equals mass times acceleration.F=ma
46 NEWTON’S 3RD LAW OF MOTION – ACTION & REACTION Interacting things exert forces on each other.
47 Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion - When one object exerts a force on a second object, it will exert an equal and opposite force on the first object.
48 Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion One force is called the action force and the other force is called the reaction force.Ex: letting air out of a balloon, bird flying through the air, walking, & space shuttle lifting off.
