PHYS 100 always use MKS metric units 9 convert everything to MKS units before doing calculations ex KINEMATICS Particle model makes sense to approximate object as just a single point BECAUSE points can t rotate or vibrate Motion diagrams show representation of an object at fixed time intervals great for visual understanding close analogy to everyday experience cons does not easily permit transfer to mathematical description ex 1 know t1 and t2 but what about t15 Motion de ned as the change in an objects position versus time Trajectory path along which object moves Particle object represented as a single mass in space Uniform motion constant speed the constant g represents acceleration due to gravity is always positive 9 g 98ms2 Scalars have only magnitude Distance cumulative change in position Speed distance travelled in time i Mass 56kg Vectors have magnitude AND direction Displacement vector pointing from the initial to nal position as the crow ies Velocity displacement change in time t Acceleration Velocity change in time t Must de ne where O is which direction is positive gt gt gt a velocity changetime deltav delta t Sample question from class A S B S gt0 gt0 gt0

independent of the direction of Velocity 9 you can be slowing down in the negative direction and technically have positive acceleration DECELERATION 75 NEG ACCELERATION Start A OHDO 1gt0 1gt0v 4gt0

object Spring push and pull force Fsp Tension contact force resembling the pull of a rope Vector is in direction of the pull Normal force exerted by a surface against an object pressing against that surface Friction always exerted by a surface frictional force is parallel to the surface Drag resistive force points in opposite direction of motion Thrust contact force that propels object forward ie rockets Vector travels in direction of movement Electric amp magnetic Newton s 2quot Law The acceleration a is directly proportional to the force F and inversely proportional to the mass m AFm 1N 1 kg X 1 ms2 1 kgms2 following the concept of Fm ma In other words 1 N is the force that causes a 1 kg mass to accelerate at 1ms2 mass an object s resistance to change in motion related to the amount of stuff in the object weight force caused by gravity N or khms2 inertia resistance to change in some property force is required to overcome intertia Galileo s law of inertia Job of the seat belt to protect against Newton s 1 law prevent the body from moving at the same initial velocity of the car 9 a force is defined by what it does not what it is changes the state of motions of a body I is a push or a pull I acts on an object I needs an agent I is a vector I acts at contact long range Acceleration change in velocity Velocity is a vector so acceleration results from change in magnitude or direction or both Newton s 1 Law If an object is NOT accelerating then the sum of all the forces on it balance out to zero NO NET FORCE Without any net force acting on it an object will stay still Motion does not necessarily need a cause even with no forces acting on it a moving object will continue moving forever An object s natural state is that of uniform motions and NOT necessarily the state of rest Net force and Newton s 239 Law vector sum and NOT a separate force as doesn39t have own agent m Normal force is just a spring force the force exerted by the surface atoms a reaction to weight pressing solid surfaces do not always exert a normal force Howto F reebody diagrams l quot 39gtquot quot 92 Divide problem into system and environment System is the object whose motion we are studying Draw a picture show system and everything in environment that touches it Draw closed curbed around just the system Locate all points on curve where environment touches system Identify long range forces ex gravity Draw force vectors corresponding to all forces on system onto a free body diagram one diagram for each system law gives you all forces acting on a single object Newton s Oth Law At any instant of time an object only responds to the forces it feels at that instant it has no memory of previous forces 9 slinky demo J FORCE OF DRAG is proportional to relative velocity uiddensityrelativevelocityareadrag coefficient For objects not too small or fast FD l2pCDAv2 Where Across sectional area front surface P density of air l29kgm3 In a freefall FD increases until FDW at whichpoint terminal velocity is reached and there is no acceleration 9 FDmgm 0 As you go faster the drag increases Newton s 3rd Law Distinguishing interaction pairs from freebody diagrams Interaction forces 1 are of the same kind 2 Act at the same time Pitfalls of 3rd law Fnomal does not always equal w 9 normal force can be smaller and at a different angle than the weight Can be as a result of the weight OR something else ie hand press NORMAL FORCE AND WEIGHT ARE l ACTIONREACTION PAIR 9 3rd law gives us force pairs exerted by two objects on each other ENERGY AND WORK Energy transformations are changes of energy within the system om one form to another Types of Energy K Kinetic energy 9 The energy of motion the heavier an object and the faster it moves the more kinetic energy it has Ug Gravitational potential energy 9 Stored energy associated with a given object s height above the ground As the object descends its stored energy is converted to kinetic energy Us Elastic spring potential energy 9 Stored energy in a stretched object such as a string or elastic band Em Thermal energy 9 De ned as the sum of the microscopic kinetic and potential energies in molecules hot objects have more thermal energy than cold objects because molecules are vibrating more rapidly Echem Chemical energy 9 Energy stored in chemical bonds that can be hamessed for use Emgear Nuclear energy 9 Energy resulting from breakdown of nuclei energy transformations happen within the system without loss to the environment change in type of energy The basic energy model shows how energy can be transferred into and out of a system as well as transform within a system 9 Heat thermal transfer of energy tofrom a system 9 system does not move Work The process of transferring energy from the environment to a system or from a system to the environment by application of mechanical forces pushes pulls WFd Note from lecture 9 Given this the larger the displacement and the larger the Propulsion is impossible to explain force the greater the work done without Newton s 3rd law 9 The unit of work is l joule J l Nm 9 forward motion is due to an exerted force in the backward Force at an An le to the Dis lacement direction ex Rockets expel billions of atoms of rocket fuel downwards to move upwards 9 therefore work is reduced when the force is at an angle to the displacement 9 Work done at an angle is given by the parallel component of the force multiplied by the distance which is given by dc0s on an incline W Fparallel dcos G Kinetic Energy W Z AK Kf K1 K 12 mv2 9 the relationship between kinetic energy and the velocity is quadratic It also follows that Kf 12 mVf2 and K 12 mviz Potential Energy Can be stored converted into other forms of energy Conservative force
