• Substance that flows • Take the shape of their container • Gases are compressible while liquids are incompressible • Density ⿞ ⿞Measured in ⿞Mass density is independent of the objects size ‣ All objects of the same material will have the same density ⿞Gases have a lower density than liquids ⿞Liquid and temperature correlate when it comes to density • Pressure ⿞ ⿞Units: ⿞Force due to a fluid's pressure pushes on the walls of the container and all parts of the fluid as well ‣ Thus if holes are punched in the container, water is able to come out of each one which is enabled by the pressure pushing water foreword ⿞Pressure in liquids ‣ Force of gravity is responsible for the pressure in a liquid • Pressure increases with depth because as you go deeper you are increasing the amount of atmosphere above pushing down due to gravity and the liquid above it is pushing down as well ‣ ‣ Pressure of a liquid with density at depth : ‣ Fluid at rest is called Hydrostatic pressure ‣ At the surface: • Pressure will equal the air or gas pressing down on the surface ⿞ ‣ It is believed that I'd D1 is greater than D2, the pressure at the bottom of the narrow tube would be higher than the pressure at the bottom of the wide tube ‣ The pressure difference would cause the liquid to flow from right to left until heights were equal ‣ Thus: a connected liquid in hydrostatic equilibrium rises to the same height in all open regions of the container ‣ If points are at the same depth, they will have the same pressure • In hydrostatic equilibrium, the pressure is the same at all points on a horizontal line through a connected liquid of a single kind ⿞Pascal's Principle ‣ If pressure at one point in an incompressible fluid is changed, the pressure at every other point in fluid changes by same amount ⿞Atmospheric pressure ‣ Density and pressure decreases with increasing height • Because as you increase in height there is less atmosphere pushing down on you ‣ Air's density and pressure are greatest at earth's surface ‣ Changes with weather as well 13.3 Measuring and Using Pressure ⿞Gauge pressure ‣ ⿞Manometers and Barometers ‣ Manometer measures gas pressure by keeping liquid at static equilibrium ‣ ‣ Barometer • Measures atmospheric pressure ⿞Blood pressure ‣ Measures the gauge pressure • 13.4 Buoyancy ⿞Upward force of a liquid ‣ ‣ Buoyant force on an object is the same as the buoyant force on the fluid it displaces • Displaced fluid's volume is the volume of the portion of the object that is immersed in fluid ⿞Archimedes's principle: the magnitude of the buoyant force equals the weight of the fluid displaced by the object ‣ ‣ Float or Sink • Average density: • • Floating object volume: • ‣ Boats and Balloons • How a boat floats ⿞Boat settles into the water and as the water is displaced, the buoyant force increases ⿞It's constant weight equals buoyant force so the boat can float • Object will float in the air if it weighs less than the air that it displaces ⿞Gas inside must have a lower density than air • 13.5 Fluid in Motion ⿞3 assumptions ‣ Fluid is incompressible ‣ Flow is steady ‣ Fluid is non-viscous ⿞Equation of continuity: ‣ Volume of incompressible liquid entering one part of the tube or pipe must be matched by an equal volume leaving downstream • Flow is faster in narrower parts of a tube, slower in wide parts • Volume flow rate: ⿞Constant at all points in a tube ‣ Particles flow in a stream, they do not cross over each other • Speed is higher where the streamlines are closest together • Fluid particle velocity is tangent to the streamline • 13.6 fluid dynamics ⿞Fluids have a steady current but in going from a wide volume to a slower one, there is an increase in acceleration ‣ Thus there is a force • Force comes from the surrounding fluid or the pressure force ⿞Without friction, it will continue at the same speed ⿞Net force on a fluid due to pressure points from high to low pressure ‣ ‣ There is a net force on a fluid element which causes it to change speed but this only occurs if there is a pressure difference between the two surfaces ‣ Pressure gradient: where the pressure is changing from one point in a fluid to another • can cause pressure forces • Causes an ideal fluid to accelerate • Causes the pressure to be higher at a point along the streamline where the fluid is moving slower, lower where the fluid is moving faster ⿞The Bernouli Effect ‣ When air moves over a hill, the air moves faster because the streamlines comes together • Smaller hills give out a higher pressure than those that are tall ‣ Occurs in flying planes as well • As air passes over the wings of the plane, the streams come together and create a lift; this is due to the differences in pressure above and below the wing ⿞Low pressure above; high pressure below ‣ Hurricanes • roof of house comes up because of the difference in pressure ⿞When you have an ideal fluid with no viscosity, there is no pressure difference needed to keep the fluid moving at a constant speed ⿞Bournouli's equation: Ch. 14 Equilibrium and Oscillation • Magnitude of the restoring force increases the further away the object is from the equilibrium position • Oscillation: repetitive motion as a result of an interplay between the restoring force and object's inertia ⿞Characterized by a period or the time for the motion to repeat or the time to complete one full cycle • 14.1 Equilibrium and oscillation ⿞Frequency and period ‣ Frequency is the number of cycles per second ‣ ‣ Measured in hertz. ⿞Oscillatory motion ‣ Sine or cosine functions: sinusoidal • Oscillation of a sinusoidal is called simple harmonic motion • 14.2 linear restoring forces and SHM ⿞When spring is neither stretched or compressed, this is the equilibrium position ‣ A stiffer spring has a larger value of K ‣ Restoring force: • We know it's a restoring force because the force is in the direction opposite the displacement • Linear restoring force: net force is toward the Equilibrium position and is proportional to the distance from Equilibrium ⿞Motion of mass on a spring ‣ Max displacement from equilibrium is called the amplitude • Distance is measured from equilibrium to max ‣ Oscillation about an Equilibrium position with a linear restoring force is always simple harmonic motion ⿞Vertical mass on a spring ‣ When the block is at its Equilibrium position, it has stretched ‣ If you displace block from Equilibrium position... • Moving it upward, spring gets shorter but still stretches by ⿞Has an upward force of ⿞Thus the net force is • Thus restoring force for both vertical and horizontal is identical • Role of gravity is to determine where the Equilibrium position is, but doesn't affect the restoring force for a displacement from the equilib position ⿞The Pendulum ‣ Mass suspended from a pivot point by a light string or rod • Two forces act on the mass: tension and weight • Motion along circular arc • ⿞This is the restoring force pulling mass back to Equilibirum ⿞If angle is small enough, less than 10* then ‣ Thus the restoring force can be written as • ‣ The force on a pendulum is a linear restoring force for small angles, so the pendulum will undergo simple harmonic motion • 14.3 Describing simple harmonic motion ⿞Velocity and acceleration have same general shape but we not identical ⿞For a cosine graph ‣ Position is found using ‣ If position graph is a cosine function, the velocity graph is an upside down sine function • Will have same period • Velocity found using : • ‣ Acceleration: • Because position is proportional to acceleration but with a minus sign, the acceleration will be inverted • Can be written as : ⿞ ‣ Connection to uniform circular motion • Circular motion repeats as well • Uniform circular motion projected onto one dimension is simple harmonic motion • X component of a particle in uniform circular motion is simple harmonic motion ⿞ • Magnitude of velocity vector is particles speed ⿞ • Acceleration: 14.4 Energy in simple harmonic motion • Bungee jumping example ⿞There is both kinetic and potential energy ⿞Object begins at rest where spring is at max extension ‣ KE=0 ‣ PE is max ⿞Spring contracts where it reaches the center of oscillation or the equilib point ‣ PE is zero while KE is max ⿞Elastic potential energy: ⿞When PE is zero at equilib and max at compression or extension ‣ • Finding frequency for simple harmonic motion ⿞ ⿞Frequency and period of simple harmonic motion are determined by physical properties of the oscillator; do not depend on amplitude 14.5 Pendulum Motion • Frequency and period of a pendulum of length L with free fall acceleration g ⿞ • Frequency and period are independent of mass; length is only thing that affects it • Physical pendulums and locomotion ⿞Mass is distributed along its length ⿞Moment of inertia is measure of object's resistance to rotation ‣ Increasing inertia, decreases the frequency ⿞Frequency of physical pendulum, with a distance from the pivot ⿞ 14.6 Damped Oscillations • Occurs when the oscillator runs down and stops through the mechanical energy transforming into thermal energy ⿞Can occur because of air resistance ⿞Max displacement decreases with time ⿞As the oscillation decays, the rate decreases • Different amounts • 14.7 Driven oscillations and resonance • If hand creates a force that causes an oscillation: driven oscillation ⿞Earthquakes • Natural frequency: oscillations can continue without an outside force • Driving frequency: when the system requires periodic external forces for it to continue • Resonance: certain frequencies produce large response while others do not
