Ex 3 - N1

While rushing through the grocery store, you place two soup cans on the their side in the bottom of your cart. In your haste you do not notice some spilled juice on the floor in front of you. At the last moment you notice the spill and quickly come to a stop. After stopping, you notice your soup cans rolling to the front of your cart. Then when you get started again, you notice the cans roll to the back of the cart.

Ex 4 - Inertia & Mass

What is the definition of inertia?

What is the definition mass?

What is the relationship between inertia and mass?

Are they the same thing?

Does this observation obey Newton's laws? Which law? Can you think of another similar situation?

Elevator Problems

Ex 11 -N3 Examples

A. While decorating a Christmas Tree a student hangs a .35kg train ornament from a branch. Then hangs a .15kg bulb from the smoke stack on the front of the train. Will the ornaments remain on the tree if the hooks that hold each ornament can exert an upward force of 5N each before bending? (You need to find the force exerted by each hook.)

B. While shopping for thanksgiving dinner a overworked teacher mistakenly places a 5kg turkey on the bottom of the bag, a 3kg stack of potatoes on top of the turkey and 1.5kg bag of green beans on top of the potatoes.

i. What is the upward force exerted by the turkey on the potatoes?

ii. The grocery bag can exert a maximum upward force of 80N before breaking, will the bag hold when the teacher pulls up on the handles?

Ex. 10 - Identifying N3 Force Pairs

A. Draw a free body diagram for the student sitting in a chair and the chair. Identify all 3rd law pairs.

B. Draw a free body diagram for a student hanging from monkey bars. Draw a FBD for the student and the monkey bars, identify all 3rd law pairs.

C. Draw a free body diagram for each mass if a 3kg mass is hung from a 2 kg mass, which is hung from a 1kg mass, which is hung from a ring stand. Identify all 3rd law pairs; which string would have the highest tension.?

ANSWER TO B:

F = 9.8*2.5+9.8*1.8+9.8*8

B.Which object will reach terminal velocity first?

C. Which object will have the larger terminal velocity?

D. If a shot put, that has the same mass as the bowling ball is dropped at the same time as the bowling ball, which will reach terminal velocity first? Which will have the higher terminal velocity?

Ex - 13 Air Resistance Again....
