Forces on a Balloon Car
Transcript of Forces on a Balloon Car
An example of sliding friction on the car would be the balloon dragging on the floor. If the balloon had not tipped or touched the ground the car would have traveled a greater distance.
Forces on a Balloon Car
Rolling friction is the motion when the ball rolls on a surface.
Sliding friction is the friction between two or more solid objects that are not moving relative to each other.
Action force is a force acting on another.
An example of that would be the balloon blowing air out against the air force already.
Reaction force is a force that when acted upon causes and equal and oppisite force.
An example would be the force created to move the car even with an acting force
Action and reaction force
Inertia occured throughout the whole process. There was inertia in ever aspect of the experiment. The mass of my balloon car was .14 kg.
Inertia and mass
One of my trials showed my car traveled at a speed of 0.45m/s and accelerated at 0.06m/s^2.
Speed and acceleration
Gravity is the force pulling anything with mass towards the center of the earth or any object with mass. An example that I experienced during this experiment was when the balloon being pulled down caused by the amount of gravity.
Air pressure is the force exerted on an obbject by the weight of particles in the air.
I saw this happen when
Gravity and Air pressure
Fluid friction, also known as air resistance is the air acting against a moving object.
The more you blow up the balloon the easier it would have gone through the air resistance causing the car to go futher.
There was a lot of rolling friction between the wheels and the floor. Without that friction the car would have traveled longer and smoother
An example of that would be when the car hit the table causing it to stop. The car had the acceleration to keep going but the friction against the table caused it to stop.
