1 Name: Regents Physics Date: Mr. Morgante UNIT 2D Laws of Motion

2 Laws of Motion Science of Describing Motion is Kinematics. Dynamics- the study of forces that act on bodies in motion. First Law of Motion (Inertial Mass) An object remains at rest or moves with uniform velocity unless it is acted upon by an unbalanced force. [Hard to prove this on earth because of all the forces such as gravity, friction, etc. Closest thing is an airhockey table. Ex. This law holds true in space.] This 1 st Law is also called the Law of Inertia. Examples: Ball on incline with and without Friction; Executive Desktoy Friction and Inertia Ground This does not obey 1 st Law. Why? Block moves but eventually slows down due to FRICTION (unbalanced force) Friction- The force that opposes the motion of one surface over another. Ex: on Earth? Friction Ex. 1. m=5 Kg Does the forces balance? Check it! a=3.0 m/s 2 F=20N [On Earth] Newton s 2 nd Law is F= ma F= 5kg x 3m/s 2 = 15N What is the missing force? Draw F.B.D. to find out that you are losing 5N to Friction in order for the forces to balance out! 2

3 F Net is equal to the NET force after you are done adding all the vectors in all directions. (If the net force =0 the it is at equilibrium, if not it is an unbalanced force) F f = Force of Friction a 15N=(F f ) 10 Kg 50N=(Fapplied) A) Find unbalanced force B) Find acceleration of object using F Net = ma A) F Net = Fapplied - F f = 50N 15N = 35N B) a = F Net / m = 35N/10kg = 3.5 m/s 2 Coefficient of Kinetic Friction μ K = Coeff. of Kinetic Friction [Applies to objects on Earth] F f (Friction Force) is directly proportional to F N (Normal Force) of an object. F N (Normal Force) is the force that results from the surface that the object is in contact with (a.k.a. Contact Force) Equation is F f = μ K * F N mu greek mew phonetics F N = m g = Fw F N Fw Example F f =5N m=5kg Direction of Sliding 3

4 a) What is μ K? b) Set up the FBD on your own F f = μ K * F N Where F f = 5N; F N = F w = mg = 5kg *9.8 m/s 2 = 49 N Note F N = F w here because F w creates the contact force on the surface Note there are NO UNITS FOR μ K!!!!!!!! (Newtons/Newtons = 1) Typical Block FBD F N F f F pull or F applied F W Again, where F N = Normal Force; F f = Friction Force; F pull = force pulling or applied; F w = Force due to weight. Above are the forces that occur on a block or other object that is on a HORIZONTAL SURFACE that has a force pulling it in the horizontal direction. Simplified Free Body Diagram (FBD) of the Diagram above F N F f F pull F w This is an FBD in its fundamental form. FBD s are intended to only show forces and the angles between them. What is a Newton? 1 Newton (N) is equal to the force that a 1 kilogram (kg) mass exerts. You should be able to develop the relationship with units to satisfy this statement based on F Net =ma. Acceleration and Freefall Every falling body experiences acceleration (g) which is equal to 9.81 m/s 2 on the earth. What force does a 10 kg mass fall with? The weight of the object is the force that it falls with! F=ma or W=mg in this case since we are talking about gravity as acceleration and is denoted as g. 4

5 Remember, sign convention is important here. _ + + What about your mass? We can find mass of an object using F Net =ma. X-direction - Y-direction From F Net =ma we can rearrange it to show F Net /a=m. If we know force and acceleration, we can get the mass. Gravitational mass is the mass with respect to gravity (g=9.81 m/s 2 ) Inertial mass is the mass with respect to acceleration applied to move an object. mass a F Newton s 2 nd Law of Motion F Net /a = m (m is constant, your mass doesn t change anywhere in the universe!!) What if we apply the same force to different masses? The acceleration of that object will change, but the mass will stay the same!! Newton s 2 nd Law When an unbalanced force acts upon a body, it accelerates the body in the direction of the force. The acceleration produced is directly proportional to the force applied. Newton s 3 rd Law of Motion For every action or force, there is an equal and opposite reaction or force. This statement is the basis for equating the normal force to the weight of an object that is on a horizontal surface. F N These are both Equal & opposite Forces! Fw We will use Newton s 3 rd Law extensively in the Inclined Planes Unit and other Mechanics units. 5
