About this Document

The third video model introduces projectile motion kinematics, and then begins to talk about force. There is a clear indication of where the material for the first exam stops.

Video Module 3 Notes Until now, we have been dealing with motion in mostly one dimension, and some in two dimensions. 3.1 Motion in two dimensions 3.1.1 Constant velocity in 2 dimensions (1:41) • In two dimensions velocity is broken into two components which can be expressed using the same equation for constant velocity in one dimension • The velocity vector is represented by: v = vx^ + v y^ (1) • Where motion in the x and y dimensions can be written respectively as: x(t) = x0+ v x and y(t) = y +0v t y (2) • see 3:18 in video 3.1 for the bug example 3.1.2 Constant Acceleration (6:00 3.1) n two dimensions acceleration is also broken into two components which can be expressed using familiar equations. • The acceleration vector is represented by ~a = ax^ + a y^ (3) • Velocity in two dimensions is written again by using two separate one-dimensional equations vx(t) = vx + axt and vy(t) = v0y + ayt (4) 3.2 Projectile Motion A projectile is any object thrown. Any object thrown near the earth’s surface will feel the pull of gravity 1 3.2.1 Motion of a projectile If we neglect air resistance, the motion of a projectile is represented through the superposition of the following independent motions 1. horizontal motion with constant velocity, which is the initial horizonal velocity v , 0x where ▯ 0s the angle formed between the initial velocity vector, v and0(in most cases) the ground. v0 = v 0os▯ 0 (5) x 2. A vertical motion with intital vertical velocity v , 0y v0y = v 0in▯ 0 (6) and a constant downward acceleration due to gravity. ay= ▯g (7) where a iy the acceleration in the y direction, and ▯g represents the constant down- 2 ward acceleration towards the earth due to gravity, ▯9:8m=s 3.2.2 Writing Equations Projectile motion can be represented through two separate one-dimensional equations (3.2a 2:00) The horizontal component of motion takes the equation relating position and constant velocity as a function of time . x(t) = x + (v cos▯ ) ▯t (8) |{z} |{z} | 0 {z 0} horiz. posn. at time titial horiz. posn. initial horiz. 0x).(v Where the position on the x axis at time t, x(t) is equal to the initial position on the x axis x 0lus the x-component of the initial velocity vector v (v co0x ) 0ultip0ied by time. The vertical component of motion is also a simple modi▯cation of the equation relating position, velocity, and constant acceleration as a function of time. 1 2 y(t) = |{z} + (v0sin▯ 0 ▯t ▯ gt (9) |{z} | {z } 2 vert. posn. at time tnitial vert. poinitial vert. ye).(v Where the position on the y axis at time t, y(t) is equal to the initial y-position y 0 plus the y-component of the initial velocity vector v ;(v0yin▯ 0 mult0plied by time, 1 plus 2times the acceleration due to gravity in the negative y-direction, ▯g times time squared t . an example can be found at 2:39 of video 3.2a 2 3.2.3 Time of Flight • The time of ight, t fs the total time the projectile spends in the air • It is determined only by the vertical component of initial velocity, v (0:100yvideo 3.2b) • Since the vertical position of the object when it hits the ground is 0, then the y- component of motion at the time an object hits the ground can be written as 1 2 | ={z(tf} = (| 0i{z )0} |{z} ▯ gtf (10) 2 ▯nal vert. posn. at landing 0y ▯nal time Where both initial vertical position and ▯nal position are equal to 0, assuming the projectile started and landed on the ground. 3.2.4 Horizontal Range of Motion • A projectile will move with a constant hotizontal velocity v ,0xeglecting air resistance • R represents the horizontal range of motion and is equal to the horizontal position of the projectile when it returns to the ground at t f 2v 0y R = x(t )f= v t 0x f = v 0x▯ (11) g Or, without the variable of time, 2 R = 2v0sin▯ 0os▯ 0 (12) g Which can be simpli▯ed with trig using: 2sin▯ cos▯ = sin2▯ v2 sin2▯ R = 0 0 (13) g THIS ENDS THE MATERIAL THAT WILL BE COVERED ON EXAM 1 3.3 Newton’s First Law Newton’s First Law: An object at rest will remain at rest, and an object in motion will remain in motion at a constant velocity (at the same speed and direction), unless acted upon by an external net force. (3:53) • an object at rest is a special case of an object at constant velocity, where the velocity is 0. 3 • External forces include friction, gravity, and air resistence (really, friction from the air), so this law is best observed in a vaccum (like outer space). Inertia: The natural tendency for an object to remain at rest, or continue in a straight line at a constant velocity (5:07) Mass: the quantitative measure of an object’s inertia (SI unit is kilograms, kg.) 3.3.1 Frames of Reference Frame of Reference: The coordinate system from which we measure position, velocity, and acceleration of moving objects; the point of observation (6:17) Intertal Frame of Referece: a coordinate system in which Newton’s ▯rst laws are valid (6:39) • For example, your room is an inertal frame of reference because things in your room obey Newton’s ▯rst law Accelerating Frame of Reference: A frame of reverence where the Newton’s ▯rst law is violated (8:05) 3.4 Newton’s Second Law Newton’s Second Law states that the net force needed to change an object’s velocity is proportional to the object’s mass (or inertial mass) and its desired acceleration. F = m ▯ a = m ▯ ▯v~ (14) |{z} |{z} |{z} ▯t force mass acceleration Newton (N): The unit for force, F, which is kg ▯=s2. Because mass is a positive scalar, force F is always parallel to acceleration a Principle of Lineaear Superposition: If several forces are acting on an object simulta- neously, the net force netis the vector sum of each individual force. (4:35, 3.4a) Xn Fi= F~net (15) i=1 F net F 1 F +2F ::3F ~n (16) Mechanical Equilibrium: Occurs when the sum of the forces acting simultaneously on an object is equal to zera = 0 (7:23, 3.4a). Xn Fi= F~net= 0 (17) i=1 4 3.5 Newton’s Third Law Newton’s third law states that if an object exerts a force on another object, the second object will exert an equal and opposite force on the ▯rst object.(0:35 3.5) • For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. HOWEVER, action and reaction act on two separate objects, so they cannot balance each other • If two objects push against each other, the force felt by each object is equal, regardless of a di▯erence in mass (Ice skater example at 3:06) • see 2:34 in video 3.5 for an example 5
