91 Mass as a Fundamental Dimension 39 Atoms are made up of even smaller parts electrons protons and neutrons 39 Atoms are combined to create molecules 39 At standard atmospheric pressure water exists in a solid form as long asthe temperature is kept un er 0C 39 Understandard atmospheric pressure at sea level water remains liquid up toatemperature C Mass moment of inertia a measure of how hard it is to rotate something with respect to center of rotation 92 Measurement of Mass 39 gram unit of mass in SI equal to mass of the international prototype of the kilo ram Mass ofan object is measured indirectly by using how much something weighs Mass moment of inertia I rzm 93 Density Speci c Volume 8 Speci c Gravity 39 D nsity o any substance is defined as the ratio of the mass to the volume that it occupies e sity density massvolume 39 Density provides a measure of how compact the material is for a given vo ume 39 The density of matter changes with temperature and could also change with pressure 39 SI unit for density is kgma 36 is slugsfta US is lbmft3 39 Specific volume inverse ofdensity volume m 39 Specific volume is used in the study of thermodynamics 39 Specific volume is SI units is mSkg 39 n mmon way to represent heaviness or lightness of some material is by comparing its density tothe density of water 9 comparison is called specific gravity 39 Specific gravity density of a material density of water at 4C 39 Specific weight is defined asthe ratio ofthe weight ofthe material by the volume that it occupies 39 Specific weight weight volume 39 Specific weight density acceleration due to gravity 94 Mass Flow Rate 39 Mass flow rate tells engineers how much material is being used or moved over a period of time so that they can replenish the supply of the material 39 Mass flow rate is simply defined bythe amount of mass that flows through something per unit of time Mass flow rate masstime 95 Mass Moment of Inertia 39 When it comes tothe rotation of objects the distribution of mass about the center of rotation plays a significant role T e farther away the mass is located from the centerof rotation the harder it is to rotate the mass about the given center of rotation 39 A measure of how hard it isto rotate something with respect to center of rotation is called mass moment of inertia 39 For a single mass particle m located at a distance rfrom the axis of rotation zz the mass moment of inertia is defined by I rzm 39 To include a system of mass particles mass moment of inertia forthe 171 2 2 system of masses shown about zz axis Is I r m r m rgzm 39 The mass moment of inertia for a body such as wheel or shaft In r dm 39 MASS MOMENT OF INERTIA 39 Disk amp Circular Cylinder9m V2 mrz Sphere9m 25mr2 Rectangular Plate9lm 112mw2 96 Momentum 39 Momentum is a physical variable that is defined asthe product of mass and velocit 39 Momentum L mV Lmomentum vector Vveocityvector 39 Because velocity has direction we assume a direction with momentum as well same direction asV 39 Momentum of an object or a person at rest is 0 39 Magnitude of linear momentum is mass times ve ocity 39 Kinetic energy is another quantity that is mass dependent and is used in engineering analysis and design Kinetic energy V2 mVZ 97 Conservation of Mass TL 1 destroy mass 39 The rate at which water comes to the tub is equal to the rate at which the water leaves the tub plus the time rate of accumulation of the mass of water within the tub The rate at which afluid enters a control volume minus the rate at which thefluid leaves the control volume should be equal to the rate of accumulation or depletion of the mass offluid within the given control volume ma nu ma 101What We Mean by Force The simplest form ofa force that represents the interaction of2 objects is a push ora 39 A forces whetherthey represent the interaction of 2 bodies in direct contact orthe interaction of 2 bodies at a distance gravitational force are defined by their magnitudes their directions and the points of application 39 Natural tendency of a force acting on an object if unbalanced will be to translate the object amp rotate 39 The amount by which the object will translate rotate elongate shorten bend ortwist will depend on its support conditions material and geometric properties 39 The newton N is the ujnit offorce in SI A newton is defined as the force that will accelerate 1kg of mass at a rate of 1 msz This relationship is based on Newton s law of motion 1 Newton 1kg1msz 1b 1 slug1 ftsz 1lbf4448N 39 Hooke s law states that overthe elastic range the deformation ofa spring is directly proportional to the applied force according to Fkx Fapplied force N or lb kspring constant Nmm or Ncm or bin xdeformation of the spring mm or cm or in use unitsthat are consistent wi h 39 Elastic range isthe range over which if the applied force is removed the internal spring force will return the spring to its original unstretched shape and size and do so with no permanent deformation Springforce is equal to the applied force 39 There are basically 2 types of frictional forces that are important In engineering design dwfrictional forces and viscous friction orthe fluid friction Friction force is not constant and reaches a maximum value which is given by szxuN N is normal force 1 is coefficient of static friction for the 2 surfaces involved 39 The magnitude ofthe friction force drops to a value called the dynamic or kinetic friction 102 Newton s Laws in Mechanics 39 Newton sfirst law9 If a given object is at rest and if there are no unbalanced forces acting on it the object will then remain at rest If the object is moving with a constant speed in a certain direction and if there are no unbalanced forces acting on it the object will continue to move with its constant speed and in the same direction 39 Newton s second law9 Newton obsened that as he increased the Moon916ms2 Mars937ms2 103 Moment Torque Force Acting at a Distance 39 Tendency of force is measured in terms of a moment of a force about an axis or a point Moment has both direction and magnitude 39 When an object is subjected to an external force internal forces are created inside the material to hold the material and the components together neauiun 39 39 39 39 39 39 to keep the object held in position as planned 104 WorkForce Acting Over a Distance 39 Mechanical work is defined as the component ofthe force that moves the object times the distance the object moves The work done bythe pushing force movingthe carfrom position 1 to position 2 is given by W Fcose d 105 Pressure and StressForce Acting Over an Ar 39 Pressure provides a measure of intensity of a force acting over an area It can be defined as the ratio offorce overthe contact surface area pressure force

called the normal stress and the ratio ofthe horizontal component of the force the component ofthe force that is parallel to the place surface to the area is called shear stress Normal stress component is often called pressure 106 Modulus of Elasticity Modulus of Rigidity and Bulk Modulus of Compressibility 39 modulus ofelasticity is a measure of how easily a material will stretch when pulled subject to a tensile force or how well the material will shorten when pushed subject to a compressive force 5 whe e onormal stress Nm2 or lbinz Emodulus of elasticityNm2 or lbinz 2normal strain
