Collisions In a collision two objects interact strongly for a very short time so that external forces can be neglected When the total kinetic energy of the two objects is the same after the collision as before the collision is called elastic Otherwise it is called inelastic In the perfectly inelastic coistion all the energy relative to the center of mass is converted to thermal or internal energy

system is conserved when the net external force is zero the total mechanical energy changes because the internal forces may be nonconservative This is for instance the case in our example of the astronaut Her muscles use chemical energy to push the pannel away Before the push the kinetic energy of the system was zero after the push it is 2162 U 7 2 Kafter ma p 2 However it is possible to decompose the kinetic energy of a system into a CM energy which does not change when the net external force is zero and kinetic energies relative to the CM which may change due to internal forces The kinetic energy of a system of particles is TL 77 The velocity of each particle can be written as the sum of the velocity of the CM 27cm and the velocity of the particle relative to the CM reference frame TL s s s s mi 717 U7 vi vcm Wlth vcm 271 mi see figure 840 of Tipler Mosca for 239 1 2 Then and 7L1 7L1 1 n 1 a n a ngwgm Ucm 39 11 11 Now 39I L M cm 0 11 because the CM velocity is zero relative to the CM Therefore the kinetic energy of a system of particles is 1 n 1 K ingm Krel Where Krel 11 M is the total mass and Krel is the kinetic energy of the particles relative to the CM Impulse and Average Force Figure 824 of TiplerMosca The impulse of the force 13 on one of the particles is defined as tf 12 th t l where the integration is over the time interval At tf ti of the

relative to the rocket is another constant uex gt 0 The mass of the rocket at time t becomes mmtmO Rt where m0 is the rocket mass at the initial time t 0 The momentum of the rocket at time t is P mv We assume that the rocket moves against a constant gravitational acceleration In the instantaneous rest frame of the rocket momentum conservation reads dP mgdt mdv uexdm mdv uedet Note dP 0 if there

The gun is fired at the same instant when the monkey drops Will the dart hit PRS 1 Yes and 2No Waves Encountering Barriers Reflection a nd Refraction When a wave is incident on a boundary that separates two regions of different wave speed part of the wave is reflected and part is transmitted Figure 1517 of Tipler Mosca shows a A pulse on a light string that is attached to a heavier string c A pulse on a heavy string that is attached to a light string In the first case the replected pulse is inverted in the second not The same happens with a light and a heavy spring attached to one another In three dimensions a boundary between two regions of differing wave speed is a surface Figure 1519 of TiplerMosca shows a ray incident on such a surface The reflected ray makes an angle with the normal to the surface equal to that of the incident ray The transmitted ray is bent towards or away from the normal a process called refraction When the wave speed in the second medium is greater than that in the incident medium the ray is bent away from the normal As the angle of incidence is increased the angle of refraction increases unit it reaches 900 This defines a critical angle of incidence and for even greater incident angles there is no refracted ray a phenomenon called total internal reflection In total internal reflection the wave function drops to zero exponentially fast so that it becomes negligible within a few wavelength from the surface This can lead to barrier penetration or tunneling Diffraction A wave encountering a small obstacle tends to bend around the obstacle This bending of the wavefront is called diffraction When a wave encounters a barrier with an aperture which is much smaller than the wavelength the wave bends and spreads out as a spherical circular wave This distinguishes the waves from particles Figure 1522 of Tipler Mosca which can be regarded as waves with a wavelength so small that any aperture will be large in comparison In the ray approximation waves are traveling with no diffraction Sound waves with frequencies above 20000 Hz are called ultrasonic waves Because of their small wavelength they can be send out to be reflected from small objects Used by bats sonar sound navigation and ranging sonogram for diagnostic purposes The Doppler Effect When a wave source and a receiver are moving relative to each other the frequencey is not the same as that omitted This is called the Doppler effect after the Austrian physicist who predicted this phenomenon The change in the frequency is slightly different depending on whether the source or the receiver moves relative to the medium When the source moves the wavelength changes and the new frequency if found from the relation f v When the receiver moves the frequency changes while the wavelength is unchanged Consider that a source moves with speed us relative to the medium The frequency of the source is f0 The waves in front of the source are compressed whereas behind the source they are farther appart Figure 1524 of Tipler Mosca When 21 is the speed of the wave in the medium the new wavelength becomes Avius f0 In front of the source the minus sign applies behind the source the plus sign The receiver at rest gets then the frequency If3 f0 f0 vius liusU39 If the receiver moves with velocity u relative to the medium and the source is at rest the number of waves crests that pass by per second becomes Here the plus sign stand when the receiver moves towards the source otherwise the minus sign applies When receiver and source move one combines the two equations in the obvious way Example The radar used by police to catch speeders relies on the Doppler effect Electromagnetic waves emitted by the transmitter are reflected by the car and the Doppler shift is measured Schock Waves and Mach Number If a source moves with speed greater than the wave speed 21 there will be no waves in front of the source When a source accelerates to approach and pass wave speed the waves pile up as a shock wave In case of a sound wave this is heard as a sonic boom When the source travels at a constant speed u gt v the wave is confined to a cone of angle wt 21 sm6 Mach number ut u see Figure 1524 of TiplerMosca Superpositions of Waves Chapter 16 When two waves meet in space they add algebraically superposition The superposition of harmonic waves is called interference In 1801 Young observed the interference of light Davisson and Germer observed in 1927 the interference of electron waves The principle of superposition When two or more waves combine the resultant wave is the algebraic sum of the individual waves y3x7t y1x7t y2x7t Examples Figure 161 of Tipler Mosca Interference of Harmonic Waves Two wave sources that are in phase or have a constant phase difference are said to be coherent otherwise they are said to be incoherent We consider the superposition of two Figure 162 Tipler Mosca coherent waves 3J1 yo sinkx wt yg yo sinkx cut i 6 y3y1y2

phenomenon is caused by the interference of sound waves with slightly different frequenciesWhat do we hear For equal amplitudes we have at a fixed point up to a phase constant the pressure fluctuation

shows how the intensity varies with the path difference The DoubleSlit Experiment Interference of light is difficult to observe because a light beam is usually the result of millions of atoms radiating incoherently Coherence in optics is commonly achieved by splitting the light beam from a single source One method of achieving this is by diffraction of a light beam by two slits in a barrier Thomas Young 1801 Standing Waves Chapter 162 When waves are confined in space reflections at both ends cause the wave to travel in both directions For a string or pipe there are certain frequencies for which superposition results in a stationary pattern called standing wave The frequencies that produce these patterns are called resoncance frequencies Each such frequency with its accompanying wave function is called a mode of vibration The lowest frequency produces the fundamental mode or first harmonic For each frequency there are certain points on the string that do not move Such points are called nodes Midway between each pair of nodes is a point of maximum amplitude of vibration called an antinode String fixed at both ends Figure 1610 of TiplerMosca The standing wave condition is and with fn An v the resonance frequencies become f n U nf 71 1 2 3 n 1 7 7 where fl is the fundamental frequency Example pianos String fixed at one end Figure 1616 of Tipler Mosca The free end is an antinode The standing wave condition can thus be written n L n135 quot 4 and with fn An v the resonance frequencies become U 1 4L nflv 77 73757 fnn where fl is the fundamental frequency Example the air column in an organ pipe Wave Functions for Standing Waves Standing wave occur due to the superposition of the reflected waves When a sting vibrates in its nth mode a point on the string moves with simple harmonic motion Therefore the wave function is given by yx t Anx coswnt 6 where can is the angular frequency 6 the phase constant and Ax the amplitude which depends on the location on the string At an instant where the vibration is at its maximum amplitude the shape of the string is Anx An sinkn 16 where kin 27rn is the wave number The wave function for a standing wave in the nth harmonic can thus be written ynxt An sinkn x coswnt l 6 Superpositions of Standing Waves In general a vibrating system does not vibrate in a single harmonic mode Instead the motion consists of a mixture of the allowed harmonics and the wave function is a linear combination of the harmonic wave functions yxt 2A sinkn x coswnt 6 where k3 27rn can 27r fn and An 6 are constants which depend on the initial position and velocity of the string Interestingly each wave which fulfills the appropriate boundary conditions here y 0 at x 0 and x L can be expanded in this way Harmonic Analysis and Synthesis Waves can be analyzed in terms of harmonics Example Figure 1624 of Tipler Mosca shows the relative intensities for a tuning fork a clarinet and an oboe each playing a tone at a fundamental frequency of 440 Hz The inverse is harmonics synthesis the construction of a periodic wave from harmonic components Example Figure 1625 and 1626 of Tipler Mosca Wave Packets and Dispersion Pulses which are not periodic can also be expanded into sinusoidal waves of different frequencies However a continuous distributions of frequencies rather than a discrete set of harmonics is needed These are wave packets The characteristic feature of a wave pulse is that it has a beginning and an end If the duration of the pulse is At the range of frequencies Aw needed to describe the impulse is given by the relation Aw At N 1 Eg if At is very small Aw is very large and vice versa A wave pulse produced by a source of duration At has a width Ax vAt in space where v is the wave speed A range of frequencies Aw implies a range of wave numbers Ak Awv Therefore Aw At N 1 implies AkrAx N 1 If a wave packet is to maintain its shape as it travels all of the components must 15 travel at the same speed A medium where this happens is called nondispersive medium Air is a nondispersive medium for sound waves but solids and liquids are generally not A familiar example for the dispersion of light waves is the rainbow When the speed of the wave component depends only slightly on the their wavelength the wave packet changes shape only slowly as it travels However the speed of the wave packet called group velocity is not the same as the average speed of the components called phase velocity For example the group velocity of surface waves in deep water is half the phase velocity Kinematics

force 3 Action Reaction Forces always occur in equal and opposite pairs If object A exterts a force on object B an equal but opposite force is exterted by object B on A Friction An object may not move because the external force is balanced by the force f8 of static friction Its maximum value fsamm is obtained when any further increase of the external force will cause the object to slide To a good approximation fsamax is simply proportional to the normal force fsmar Ms Fn where us is called the coefficient of static friction Kinetic friction also called sliding friction Once the box slides a constant force is needed to keep it sliding at constant velocity The opposing force is the force of kinetic friction In a good approximation it is also simply proportional to the normal force fk LLan

WtotKf K7L Potential Energy Often work done by external forces on a system does not increase the kinetic energy of the system but is instead stored as potential energy Conservative Forces A force is called conservative when its total work done on a particle along a closed path is zero figure 622 of Tipler Potential Energy Function For conservative forces a potential energy function U can be

If the object returns to its original shape when the forces are removed it is said to be elastic Most objects are elastic for forces up to a certain limit called the elastic limit A force streching an object is called a tensile force figure 1220 of TiplerMosca The fractional change in the length is called the strain AL Strain L The ratio of the force F to the crosssectional area A is called the tensile stress F St ress A Figure 1221 of TiplerMosca shows a graph of stress versus strain for a typical solid bar The ratio of stress to strain in the linear region Hooke39s law applies there of the graph is a constant called Young39s modulus T T stress FA strain ALL 39 The stress at which breakage occurs is called tensile strength If a bar is subjected to forces that compress it rather than stretch it the notation is compressive stress instead of stress and compressive strength for the breakoint force Similar treatment of shear forces Figure 1222 of TiplerMosca Fluids Chapter 13 Density

bulk modulus AVV The compressibility is the reciprocal of the bulk modulus Liquids and solids are relatively incompressible They have large values of B relatively independent of temperature and pressure Gases are easily compressed and their values for B depend strongly on temperature and pressure The weight of an incompressible liquid in a column of crosssectional area A and height Ah is w
