Newton's First Law of Motion

Stated:

Every object continues in its state of rest, or

uniform velocity in a straight line, as long as

no net force acts on it.

Newton's First law is also known as

'the law of inertia'

What is inertia?

Say we are sitting in a vehicle, and somehow

'magically' I am pulled towards the cute

opposite gender counterpart next to me.

What happened?

Did some mysterious force pull me towards this, lovely individual?

Inertial Reference frames

An inertial reference frame is one where Newton's laws are valid. There must be no acceleration, or you could say there must be a constant velocity.

What is Mass?

Mass is the measure of inertia.

The more mass something has

the more force is required to give it

some motion.

SI units : Kilogram , kg.

Is mass the same as weight?

Newton's Second Law

Stated: The acceleration of an object is directly

proportional to the net force acting on it, and

inversely proportional to its mass.

A Force is an action that can accelerate an object

Its SI units are Newtons , N

The base unit of a N comes from this 2nd law of motion

F =ma [N] = [kg][m/s ]

2

What net force would be required to bring a 2000 kg truck from rest up to 25 m/s in a time of 50 seconds?

Notice it is a vector equation

Thus it can be broken into components.

Newtons Third Law

Stated: Whenever one object exerts a Force on a second

object, the second exerts an equal force in the opposite

direction on the first.

If a 2000 kg tow truck crashes into a 1250 kg car, which feels the greater magnitude of Force?

A. Truck

B. Car

C. Same

Which of these has a greater magnitude of acceleration?

Force:

Push or a pull

contact or

long range

Normal Force

Gravity pulls down, what keeps us from falling through the earth?

What is normal about the normal force?

Takes the value of what it needs to

Perpendicular to any surface

The proportionality constant is a coefficient. The coefficient of friction.

Friction: is proportional to the normal force.

Two types we will study:

Dynamic

Static

**Kinetic friction**

Static friction

Applied Force

**Frictional force**

**Inclined planes**

Only real trick here is changing the

x and y axes.

Then do same steps.

x and y axes.

Then do same steps.

**2 lists: Concept**

1. Sum of all forces. F = ma

2. Gravity F = mg : always straight down.

G

3. Normal force: Always normal, and what it needs to be.

4. Newton's 3: Two FBD, substitution.

5. Friction: Links y direction to x direction, substitution.

6. Tension: Same everywhere, force in direction of rope.

7. Pulley: Turn force, count the ropes.

**Tension:**

**Hang a mass, what is tension?**

**Loop rope over branch?**

**Pull up on box with 2 ropes?**

**Pulley:**

**Add up the ropes.**

List: What to do

1. Draw picture

2. FBD (axis, force - all of them)

3. Components

a. On axis (list x and y, separately)

b. Off axis (put on both lists, x & y)

4. F = ma ( components, concepts)

5. Algebra

6. Answer problem (kinematics)

Also notice the sum, this means we have to

ADD all the different vectors together.

This is most effectively done in their individual components.

**It is constant**

**Kinetic = motion**

this is moving friction

this is moving friction

No motion

ranges from 0 to

Maximum value

it can be bigger than kinetic friction

**31) a 20.0 kg block is on a smooth 30 degree surface, connected by a thin cord over a pulley to a 5.00 kg block which hangs vertically. (a) What is the tension in the cord? (b) What is the acceleration of the big block**

**20.0 kg**

**5.00 kg**

6. Answer problem (kinematics)

"I am having some trouble understanding the concept of a normal force. "

"free body and force diagrams and all the other dynamic vectors need to be simplified."

"Is static force when two objects are parallel in the same direction? What would be an example of that?"

"I don't understand what the difference between the force of gravity and normal force?"
