3 How does a dropped object behave?!does the object accelerate, or is the speed constant?!do two objects behave differently if they have:!different masses?!different shapes?
4 Acceleration Due to Gravity " Earth exerts a gravitational force on objects that is attractive (towards Earth s surface). " Near Earth s surface, this force produces a constant acceleration downward. # To measure this acceleration, we need to slow down the action. # Galileo was the first to accurately measure this acceleration due to gravity. # By rolling objects down an inclined plane, he slowed the motion enough to establish that the gravitational acceleration is uniform, or constant with time.
5 Inclined Plane Experiment!Does the marble pick up speed as it rolls?!is it moving faster at the bottom of the incline than it was halfway down?
6 " Flashes of a stroboscope illuminate a falling ball at equal time intervals. " Distance covered in successive time intervals increases regularly. " Since distance covered in equal time intervals is increasing, the velocity must be increasing.
7 " Average velocity for a time interval is given by dividing the distance traveled in that time interval by the time of the interval. " For example, between the 2 nd and 3 rd flashes, the ball travels a distance of 4.8 cm cm = 3.6 cm in a time of 0.05 s: v = 3.6 cm 0.05 s = 72 cm/s!
8 " The velocity values steadily increase. Time 0 s 0.05 s 0.10 s 0.15 s 0.20 s 0.25 s 0.30 s 0.35 s Position 0 cm 1.2 cm 4.8 cm 11.0 cm 19.7 cm 30.6 cm 44.0 cm 60.0 cm Average velocity 24 cm/s 72 cm/s 124 cm/s 174 cm/s 218 cm/s 268 cm/s 320 cm/s
9 " The velocity values steadily increase. # Each point is plotted at the midpoint between the two times.
10 " The slope of the line is constant. " Thus, the acceleration is constant.
11 a = 464 cm/s " 72 cm/s 8 flashes # 0.05 s flash ( ) = 392 cm/s 0.4 s = 980 cm/s 2 = 9.8 m s 2!
12 The diagram shows the positions at 0.10-sec intervals of a ball moving left to right. Is the ball accelerated? a) Yes. b) No. c) Unable to determine. The ball moves an equal distance during each 0.10-sec interval, so the speed does not change. Thus, the ball is not accelerated.
13 The diagram shows the positions at 0.05-sec intervals of two balls moving left to right. Are either or both of these balls accelerated? a) Ball A is accelerated. b) Ball B is accelerated. c) Both balls are accelerated. d) Neither ball is accelerated. Both balls are accelerated. Ball A covers an increasing distance in each 0.05-sec interval, so it is speeding up. Ball B is covering less and less distance with each interval, so it is slowing down. Both of these are accelerations.
14 How does a dropped!do two objects behave differently if they have:!different masses?!different shapes? "The feather falls more slowly than the brick. "But what is the REAL reason? object behave?
15 How does a dropped object behave? "If we drop a feather and a brick in a vacuum, they reach the ground at the same time. "Gravitational acceleration does NOT depend on the weight of the object.
16 Tracking a Falling Object "How long does it take for the ball to reach the ground? "How fast is it traveling when it gets there? # Assuming air resistance effects are small, the ball accelerates at 9.8 m/s 2! 10 m/s 2. # Each second, its velocity increases by 10 m/s.
17 Tracking a Falling Object " Starting from rest, its velocity has increased to 10 m/s after the first second; to 20 m/s after 2 s; to 30 m/s after 3 s; etc. # 10 m/s > 20 MPH # 30 m/s! 70 MPH! " During the first second, its average velocity is 10 m/s 2 = 5 m/s, during which time it travels 5 m. In the first half second, it travels 1.25 m.
18 Tracking a Falling Object " The distance increases in proportion to the square of the time: d = 1 2 at 2 = 1 2 ( 10 m/s) ( 1 s) 2 = 5 m!
19 The velocity-versus-time graph for a certain falling object is shown. Is the acceleration of this object a) Yes. b) No. c) Impossible to tell from this graph. constant? Constant acceleration would require the v vs. t curve to be a straight line. This graph is curving upward, so the slope (and the acceleration) is increasing.
20 Throwing a ball downward "Let the ball be thrown downward instead of being dropped. # It will have a starting velocity different from zero. # It will reach the ground more rapidly. # It will have a larger velocity when it reaches the ground. v = v 0 + at d = v 0 t at 2
21 Beyond Free Fall: Throwing a Ball Upward! What if the ball is thrown upward?! Gravitational acceleration is always directed downward, toward the center of the Earth.! Here, the acceleration is in the opposite direction to the original upward velocity.
22 " Let the initial velocity be 20 m/s upward. # It immediately starts experiencing a downward acceleration due to gravity, of approximately 10 m/s. # Every second, the velocity decreases by 10 m/s. " After 2 s, the ball has reached its highest point. # Its velocity changes direction, from upward to downward, passing through a value of 0 m/s. " Now, the downward acceleration increases the downward velocity.
23 What is the ball s acceleration at the top of its path a) zero. b) +10 m/s c) -10 m/s d) +10 m/s 2 e) -10 m/s 2 (at t=2 s)? Gravity does not turn off at the top! The ball s velocity is still changing, as it changes from going up to going down. For a moment the velocity is zero, but the gravitational acceleration is a constant throughout the path.
24 " The velocity-vs-time plot starts with +20 m/s (upward) at time t=0 and changes at a steady rate of -10 m/s 2 (decreasing 10 m/s each second). " Positive velocities correspond to upward motion; negative velocities correspond to downward motion. " The slope is constant and negative (for constant downward acceleration).
25 Projectile Motion " The path that a moving object follows is called its trajectory. # An object thrown horizontally is accelerated downward under the influence of gravity. # Gravitational acceleration is only vertical, not horizontal. # The object s horizontal velocity is unchanged, if we can neglect air resistance. " Projectile motion involves the trajectories and velocities of objects that have been launched, shot, or thrown.
26 Does this represent a realistic trajectory? a) Yes. b) No. c) Maybe. The coyote would not go straight horizontally, pause, and then fall straight down. There are many examples in movies and on television of unrealistic trajectories. Can you think of any others?
27 What does the trajectory look like? $The acceleration of the horizontal motion is zero (in the absence of air resistance). $The object moves with constant horizontal velocity. $It travels equal horizontal distances in equal time intervals. $The acceleration in the vertical direction is constant. $Its vertical velocity increases downward just like the falling ball. $In each successive time interval, it falls a greater distance than in the previous time interval.
28 What does the trajectory look like? $The total velocity at any point is found by adding the vertical component of the velocity, at that point, to the horizontal component of the velocity at that point. $The horizontal velocity remains constant, because there is no acceleration in that direction. $The length of the horizontal velocity vector doesn t change. $The downward (vertical) velocity gets larger and larger, due to the acceleration due to gravity.
29 What does the trajectory look like? $Trajectories for different initial velocities of a ball rolling off a table: $The largest initial velocity is v 3. $The smallest initial velocity is v 1. $The ball travels greater horizontal distances when projected with a larger initial horizontal velocity.
30 Which of these three balls would hit the floor first if all three left the tabletop at the same time? a) The ball with initial velocity v 1. b) The ball with initial velocity v 2. c) The ball with initial velocity v 3. d) They would all hit at the same time. Since all three balls undergo the same downward acceleration, and they all start with a vertical velocity of zero, they would all fall the same distance in the same time!
31 Projectile Motion " Treating the vertical motion independently of the horizontal motion, and then combining them to find the trajectory, is the secret. # A horizontal glide combines with a vertical plunge to produce a graceful curve. # The downward gravitational acceleration behaves the same as for any falling object. # There is no acceleration in the horizontal direction if air resistance can be ignored. # The projectile moves with constant horizontal velocity while it is accelerating downward.
32 Hitting a Target! If the rifle is fired directly at the target in a horizontal direction, will the bullet hit the center of the target?! Does the bullet fall during its flight?
33 Hitting a Target! The trajectory depends on the initial velocity.! The trajectory depends on the launch angle.
34 Hitting a Target! The greatest distance is achieved using an angle close to 45 if the effects of air resistance are negligible.
35 Hitting a Target! For the lowest angle, the horizontal velocity is much greater than the initial vertical velocity.! The ball does not go very high, so its time of flight is short.
36 Hitting a Target! For the highest angle, the initial vertical velocity is much greater than the horizontal velocity.! The ball goes higher, so its time of flight is longer, but it does not travel very far horizontally.
37 Hitting a Target! The intermediate angle of 45 divides the initial velocity equally between the vertical and the horizontal.! The ball stays in the air longer than at low angles, but also travels with a greater horizontal velocity than at high angles.
38 Which free-throw trajectory has the greatest chance of success? a) upper. b) middle. c) lower. What factors determine the best trajectory? Are these factors different for different situations?
39 The ball coming straight down has a wider range of possible paths.
40 An arched shot from farther away stays in the air longer than an arched shot from closer to the basket. Away from the basket, flatter trajectories allow more accurate control. Spin of the basketball, height of release, and other factors also play a role.
41 Which of the two trajectories shown will result in a longer time for the ball to reach home plate? a) The higher trajectory. b) The lower trajectory. c) They will take the same time. The higher trajectory takes longer. The time of flight is determined by the initial vertical velocity component which also determines the maximum height reached.
