MOTION Standards Standards : S8P3 – Investigate the relationship between force, mass, and the motion of objects. S8P3a – Demonstrate the effect of balanced and unbalanced forces on objects in terms of gravity, inertia, and friction. Essential Questions: How can you describe an object’s motion? What causes an object’s motion to change?
Motion An object is in motion if its distance from another object is changing.
Reference Point A place or object used for comparison to determine if something is in motion.
Measuring Distance INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM OF UNITS (SI UNITS) Scientists use the INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM OF UNITS (SI UNITS) to communicate their measurements clearly.
Speed The speed of an object is the distance the object travels per unit of time. Speed = Distance Time
Average Speed The total distance traveled divided by the total time. Average Speed = Total Distance Total Time
Instantaneous Speed The rate at which an object is moving at a given instant in time.
Factors Affecting Gravity MASS MASS – a measure of the amount of matter in an object (kg). DISTANCE BETWEEN OBJECTS DISTANCE BETWEEN OBJECTS – the farther apart two objects are, the lesser the gravitational force between them.
Weight and Mass MASS MASS – a measure of the amount of matter in an object (kg). WEIGHT WEIGHT– The force of gravity on a person or object at the surface of a planet..
Free Fall When the only force acting on an object is gravity, it is in free fall. The force of gravity is unbalanced, which causes an object to accelerate. Acceleration is 9.8m/s 2
Air Resistance A type of fluid friction objects falling through air experience.
Terminal Velocity The greatest velocity a falling object reaches when the force of air resistance equals the weight of the object.
Projectile Motion projectile An object that is thrown is a projectile. A projectile will fall at the same rate as any dropped object.
Warm-up: Recall Newton’s 1 st and 2 nd Laws… try to put them in your own words!
Newton’s First Law (Inertia) An object at rest will remain at rest, and an object moving at a constant velocity will continue moving at a constant velocity, unless it is acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Inertia depends on mass. The more mass an object has, the harder it is to change the rate of acceleration.
Newton’s Second Law Acceleration depends on the object’s mass and on the net force acting on the object. Acceleration = net force mass
Newton’s Third Law If one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts a force of equal strength in the opposite direction on the first object.
Momentum A characteristic of a moving object that is related to the mass and velocity of the object. Momentum = Mass x Velocity
Law of Conservation of Momentum The total momentum of any group of objects remains the same, or is conserved, unless outside forces act on the objects.
Centripetal force Any force that causes an object to move in a circular path.
Pressure A force exerted over an area on the surface of an object.
Pressure decreases as the area over which a force is distributed increases. It is measured in Newtons/square meter (N/m 2 ) …aka the PASCAL Write this ------------
Fluid Pressure All of the forces exerted by the individual particles in a fluid combine to make up the pressure exerted by the fluid. Air pressure is an example of fluid pressure.
Balanced Pressure In a stationary fluid, pressure at a given point is exerted equally in all directions.
Atmospheric Pressure As your elevation increases, atmospheric pressure decreases; there’s less air above you!
Water Pressure Water pressure increases as depth increases; there’s more air PLUS water above you!
Barometer An instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure.
Buoyancy The ability to float. The buoyant force acts in the direction opposite to the force of gravity, so it makes an object feel lighter.
Archimedes’ Principle The buoyant force acting on a submerged object is equal to the weight of the fluid the object displaces.
Pascal’s Principle When force is applied to a confined fluid, the change in pressure is transmitted equally to all parts of the fluid. HYDRAULIC SYSTEM A HYDRAULIC SYSTEM multiplies force by applying the force to a small surface area; the increase in pressure is then transmitted to another part of the confined fluid, which pushes on a larger surface area.
Bernoulli’s Principle As the speed of a moving fluid increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases. LIFT LIFT = an upward force
