forces 6 Between two charges Nuclear force 6 Between subatomic particles Weak forces 6Arise in certain radioactive decay processes Newton s First Law 0 If an object does not interact with other objects it is possible to identify a reference frame in which the object has zero acceleration 6This is also called the law ofinertia 6 It defines a special set of reference frames called inertial frames We call this an inertial frame of reference 0 A reference frame that moves with constant velocity relative to the distant stars is the best approximation of an inertial frame 6 We can consider the Earth to be such an inertial frame although it has a small centripetal acceleration associated with its motion Newton s First Law Alternative Statement In the absence of external forces when viewed from an inertial reference frame an object at rest remains at rest and an object in motion continues in motion with a constant velocity Newton s First Law describes what happens in the absence of a force Also tells us that when no force acts on an object the acceleration of the object is zero Inertia and Mass The tendency of an object to resist any attempt to change its velocity is called inertia Mass is that property of an object that specifies how much resistance an object exhibits to changes in its velocity Mass is an inherent property of an object Mass is independent ofthe object s surroundings Mass is independent ofthe method used to measure it Mass is a scalar quantity The SI unit of mass is kg Mass vs Weight Mass and weight are two different quantities Weight is equal to the magnitude of the gravitational force exerted on the object Weight will vary with location Newton s Second Law 0 When viewed from an inertial frame the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on it and inversely proportional to its mass 0 Algebraically 2F m a 0 BF is the net force This is the vector sum of all the forces acting on the object o Newton s
