of current interest Everything outside of the system Pushes or pulls on a system exerted by the environment The sum of all the forces acting on the system Zero net force gt Zero Acceleration Nonzero net force gt Nonzero Acceleration Magnitude of force A on B magnitude of force B on A and forces are in opposite directions Science is possible because we are able to divide the world into 2 parts 0 System 0 Environment What makes science possible is the fact that we can investigate and try to understand the system without having to understand everything else The environment can exert pushes or pulls on the system otherwise known as forces Isaac Newton Aec seunsuug uo UJog 1791 I 99I apuquieg on 905 anel eeosa on SUJOL saog S 99I eanoo on sumqu L99I pauannd elpuud L89I 39 IDI SOLI Newton s

opposite directions Newton s laws and acceleration You are currently sitting relative to the Earth 1 Are you accelerating Top Hat Question 2 Therefore is the net force on you zero or nonzero The point is that even if you do not know what forces are acting on you from Newton s laws you may conclude that the net force on you must be nonzero because you are accelerating towards the center of your

its mass and velocity stands for mass stands for momentum a measure of a body s resistance to changes in velocity 0 the resistance of any object to any change in its a frame of reference that is not accelerating Newton s laws of motion Newton s 2nOI law can be written as Fji F quot Where the vector p mv is a measure Newton called the quotquantity of motionquot which today we call momentum The quantity m is called the mass Newton s 3rOI law can be written as r F 33 33 Which states that the force of A on B is of the same magnitude as the force of B on A and that the forces act in opposite directions The SI unit of mass is the kilogram kg The SI unit of force is the newton N kng39Z Inertia See de nitions on side 0 The greater the mass the greater the inertia and the greater a body s resistance to having its velocity changed Newton s laws of motion take their simplest form in the inertial frame of reference 0 Since the Earth spins on its axis everything that moves with the Earth is accelerating towards a point on its axis Consequently the Earth is not an inertial frame of reference However for short periods we can treat the earth as approximately inertiagtIlt o If the mass of

macroscopic forces are the residual effects of the electromagnetic and the gravitational forces Consider the interaction between two particles a distance rapart of charge q and q As the charges are moved apart the strength of the interaction decreases like 1r2 Now consider the interaction between two dipoles The strength of the interaction decreases faster than it does for two charges Why On

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Allison Fischer University of Alabama

"I signed up to be an Elite Notetaker with 2 of my sorority sisters this semester. We just posted our notes weekly and were each making over $600 per month. I LOVE StudySoup!"

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
