LECTURE – THURSDAY SEPT 8 PHYSICS OF ORBITS Force- causes acceleration, a push/pull that modifies an object’s motion (ex. Gravity, friction, rotation of earth, tension, electromagnetism) TYPES  Gravity- matter attracts other matter (attraction depends on mass)  Electromagnetism- +/- electrical charges (opposite charges attract, like charges repel)  Strong Nuclear Force- very short-range force that keeps particles in the nucleus of an atom together  Weak Nuclear Force- very short-range force responsible for radioactive decay of nuclei When atoms get close: 1. The – electrons of an atom repel the – electrons of the neighboring atom (ex: the electrons in the floor repel the electrons in my shoes) 2. The + nucleus of one atom attracts the – electrons of neighboring atom (ex: the atoms in the ball attract the other atoms in the ball)  Attractive force of gravity is responsible for pulling things toward earth  Attractive and repulsive forces of electromagnetism are responsible for - Holding solids together - One object pushing on another (holding it up) - Friction - Chemical reactions - Air resistance - Everything else  Gravity is very weak, can only dominate very large objects  Newton’s Second Law: when a force (F) acts on a mass (m) it produces an acceleration (a) o a = F/m OR F = ma  for a given mass, more force = more acceleration  for a given force, more mass = less acceleration  no force = uniform motion (Newton’s first law) Motion- speed, velocity, acceleration  Speed- how fast are you going?  Velocity- speed and direction  Acceleration- change in velocity o NOTE: if you are running in a straight line going 4mph, and then turn right, still going 4mph, you ARE considered accelerating because you are changing direction even though you are not changing speed Net Force- total after balancing opposite forces  acceleration results from net force; if there is no acceleration, all forces must be balanced Gravity: 2 Newtons Law of Universal Gravitation- Fg = G(M M )/d 1 2  forces are equal and opposite  force is proportional to mass  force follows inverse square law with distance Conservation of Angular Momentum- tendency for an object to go around (orbit or rotate) Angular Momentum = mass x velocity x radius (only way to change is to give or take from someone else, aka Kepler’s second law)

## 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."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

#### "Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over \$500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

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."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

#### "It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
